Thread: Busting a User !

  1. #1

    Sick

    With all the problems going on i was wondering. if T.B. or DVDr Core got Busted can they (MPAA or RIAA) Bust us (the Members of that site) ???

    I hold a good ratio in both sites and I was wondering with the info that is stored on the tracker, if they can bust the user. Or do they have to catch us in the process of sharing a file ???

    2 things emerge from this:

    firstly they can only bust you if they catch you with something - they cant do you for "having shared 30TB, but we dont know what it was"

    secondly, most of these sites (i know TorrentBits dont) dont store any traceable info - just your IP when you connect, thats it, so ytheyd have to get you actually on the file.

    GERMAN police have exposed the names of thousands of users of illegal internet piracy sites as part of a crackdown on swapping bootleg copies of movies, games, software and music.

    A spokesman for the state crime office in the eastern region of Thuringia said that an ongoing probe of four Germans had allowed authorities to crack the online address book of the site, unmasking thousands of suspects.

    "We don't know yet if we are talking about 8,000 or 20,000 people," the spokesman said, saying that copyright violators could face heavy fines or even prison terms.

    torrenbits had a function that allowed for other users to see exactly what you where downloading and uploading. all this data will have been stored in a database and will be easily accesable if the server is taken away. I seriously doubt any of this info will be encrypted as the overhead on these sites is large enough as it is without adding encrypting and decrypting data.

    this is true, but i do believe that tb only stores the stuff you are getting there and then, and not the stuff which has expired, else they would do "total ul and dl for this torrent" not just for each session

    yeah they just saved the stuff you were downloading and uploading at the time you were doing it

    but im concerned about
    the regular uploaders
    TB stored the names of each torrent they uploaded
    and most BT sites do that also

    DVDr Core would store the uploaded torrents, the torrents you completed, as well as the stuf you were seeding and leeching.

    If the core was taken down all of that info is now in the MPAA hands. I still think that they cant do anything to us unless they catch you in the process of sharing the file...
