    SOURCE

    Personally I don't think this is going to stop anything, if its stops the public scene people will just move to the private scene, you cant stop information

    You also might want to sort out the fact that this is a complete copy-paste job from the source article.

    Did Dick Dastardly have any part in designing this? Or was it just Snidely Whiplash?

    Who cares, as long as it gets the job done, it doesn't matter whether you get stuff from torrents or usenet. I always use torrents. Takes 5 minutes to download episodes of everything, and roughly 15 minutes for hi-def movies (obviously depending on the seeds, but I get them when there's still thousands of seeds).

    If it's a bot, it can be detected and banned. Computers are stupid, they have predictible behavioral patterns. All it takes to overcome this issue are periodical cross-checks of parts between sharing peers, this solves nothing. Moreover, a bot doesn't see the difference between legal and illegal files, it would still require human input. Because, you know, it's stupid.
