Here we go...
Another torrent site is back up already on a different url...
Shutting down torrent sites is an utterly pointless exercise.
Kinda pointless, but let them try. They just dont know when to quit.
Yes because sitting there and doing nothing is such a great business strategy...
don't really care the site i go to is still there and anyway torrent/usenet or ANY p2p sites are IMPOSSIBLE to shut down they'll just always find someplace else.
If you're in the US and you use bittorrent, you're not very savvy in the first place.
Pretty much waving a large flag that says "SUE ME".
Thank God I live in Norway now. We still have to bad internet though
Thank goodness I never, ever use torrents. With the possible exception of legal ones, such as Ubuntu, and other things.
Ubuntu isn't a torrent.
He was talking about using legal torrents, such as a torrent that would allow you to download Ubuntu.
..Because some of us don't want to pay companies supporting piracy? Not paying for a site and pirating is one thing, but supporting a site for piracy by paying a monthly fee is just morally wrong. If you're going to pirate, don't pay other companies to help do it for you.
BitTorrent is a client, not a site. And you don't have to pay for the wealth of other torrent programs, if that's what you're thinking. I'm sure Urza was basically just saying BitTorrent isn't exactly private and overall shitty. If not, please correct me.
Oh, you mean like BitTorrent vs. uTorrent? Yeah, I guess; I do agree that it is stupid to use a public tracker. And using a client that doesn't have a lot of security settings probably wouldn't help.
Did any of you guys read the article? The sites named are all movie streaming sites, among them are two of my favorites :'( But none of them are torrent sites, torrents were only referenced in the recent highly publicized Hurt Locker lawsuit. If the legality of watching streaming video is still debatable hosting or linking to streaming video is not. That is without the glaring omission of youtube in all of this, I smell back room bribery of some sort. Why is youtube, the most popular source for copyright infringing material here in the USA, almost never mentioned? I don't have statistics, but I imagine other movie streaming sites and torrent sites combined only represent a drop in the buck when compared to the rampant piracy taking place daily on youtube.
More like he was name dropping, "hey look at me i'm tech savvy I know what ubuntu is"
Lol this is insanely stupid. I think you guys know of a specific Swedish tracker that has been sued numerous times and they always win.
This just proves that they can't shut down Torrent Trackers permanently. They just can't.
Shutting Down torrent sites in the US so that people cannot download from them in the future > Suing every individual who downloaded an illegal torrent
We all know this is pointless.
someone already pointed this out but this is not a torrents.
They're fighting a losing battle. Though personally, I've never downloaded a movie (or anything illegal) off torrents, anyway. I don't mind paying a little bit for a movie (sometimes), so why bother torrenting when the rental place has all the new movies I could ever want, and I get bonus features along with them? Plus the local library system has virtually any older movie I could think of watching.
