Thread: What Does The Riaa Block Bad Ip Ranges Thing Do?

  1. #1
    I was wondering what the option does where it says "Block Bad Ip Ranges (E.G. RIAA)" ?

    I was also wondering, can the RIAA sue you, only if you share your files???

    It prevents the ip's in the list from downloading from you. The list is made up by ip's thought to belong to various copyright organisations and law enforcment agencies.
    However, these organisation can always get an account with a random isp. So its by no means a failsafe methode to stop the RIAA of getting your ip number. But al bits help.

    - use the privacy patch (dont allow users to get a list)
    - assign a random port to K++ in the K++ firewall settings (5000-9999 or higher)
    - block port 1214 in K++ and in your Firewall


    Distributing (Sharing) files when you don't own the copyrights is illegal.
    Downloading files when you know the source has no permission from the copyright owner to publish them is illegal.
    Making a copy for personal use is legal in most countries, unless you have to brake some sort of copy protection to do it.

    The RIAA has asked for the adresses of people who didn't use the privacy patch. They could see all the files names that where shared. They assumed that those names where actualy the songs with that name. They didn't even download the files to check if it realy where those songs. (Most likely they where, but in the USA legal system they don't even have to prove it to force a plea bargin. If you dare to fight it they will bankrupt you with legal fees. In the USA its guilty untill proven innocent.)

    if you leech you'll be safe for awhile but as more and more people turn to leeching i/.e. not uploading you wont get any files after awhile plus that verizon customer that was gone after during the summer was wanted for downloading 600 songs in a day. just use that option and you'll be safe. the people being sued are those using regular kazaa.
