The laws concerning intellectual properties should be strengthened not weakened.

information flows...nothing is exclusivley yours...some how it came to you...the idea was not birthed in your head.

ever notice one idea pops up, and half way around the world someone else thinks they too are clever for the "new idea"...

people need to live and let live...the tighter you hold something, the more sure you will lose it.

peace my friend

- I'd add to that 'especially not forever'.

I have nothing against a system of patent but even they expire after a reasonable time.

It would appear that those pursuing the current (unworkable) narrow notion of 'intellectual property' think everything should be the 'property' of the big corporations now and for all time.

As one wag once said I look forward to the day when they can just have done with it and just have us all up in court for owing them money.

If they could charge for the air we need to breathe they would.

As a newly formed political party the Piracy Party couldn't couldn't ask for better publicity. Being viewed as the victim of unlawful police action by many in a huge scandal that has been plastered all over the Swedish media for 4 days now, pure gold. If they are able to get backup and running again in Sweden that will be an even bigger boost to the party.

But wait! What's that!? Is it a bird? A plane? No, it Captain Copyright!! From his fortress of solitude located deep within the heart of the Canadian Shield (or maybe Swift Current Saskatchewan) Capitan Copyright emerges. Sworn protector of the rights of artists, writers, musicians, photographers, filmmakers, and everyone in between (consumers need not apply). He will put an end to those evil global pirates.

But every super hero has a weakness right? What could be his? My guess, if you take away his corporate sponsorship he'll loose his super powers.

Downloading and installing files from questionable sources is just plain foolish.

Anyone can seed these torrents with malware disguised as something of interest.

A song, a movie, photos, or software.

There are piggyback programs that just wait for you to use your authorization password
and you're hacked.

Be careful out there.

How long has bittorrent been around? what 2 or 3 years? well I have been using it since it pretty much started, thousands of gigs downloaded and not once have I downloaded anything that wasn't what it claimed to be nor contained any virus, malware, spyware or anything. If you're talking about winmx or something I'd agree with you but never with bittorrent...

Talk about how to win friends and influence people, not.

"US government behind Pirate Bay raid"
Published: 2nd June 2006 09:08 CET

The American film and music industry rejoiced over the raid by the Swedish police on The Pirate Bay. But reports that the US government was behind the action against the Sweden-based file sharing site have now resulted in the Swedish government being reported to the country's Constitutional Committee.....

....According to Swedish Television's news programme, Rapport, the action was the result of contact between the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and the White House.

The US State Department then turned to Stockholm, with a demand for Sweden to do something about The Pirate Bay.

Why would it be such a big deal when its legal in that company! God! You can't go and arrest people without them commiting a crime (but the us government does...) I mean if its legal in that country why bother! Anyway when I create something-using music as an example I do it just for the sake of being heard, maybe some applause, good complements, I mean why should people who work less make so much more, just because they happen to have a good body or know how to make an automatic hit, none of the singing is really all that great anymore, Down with pop-culture, up with fairness. Why should these people get so much money over so little... I hate rich people... most are only there because of sucking up (or off in the case of most women but thats not their fault-they are discriminated against to the point of that being the only way) and the rest dont work at all, and maybe one or two people actually deserve it and they are spoiling their children to the point that they will become bums... wow... I turned a rant on piracy into one on Rich people...

I'm going to have to put on my Mod hat here.

While this thread is a discussion about another web site, we have to keep in mind that
ATS does not in any way support or condone illegal file sharing.

We do however promote the disclosure of secret stuff.

That was the absolute most pointless post ever... How does what the members say have to do with that... The community is different than the leadership... Jeez...

My post was only pointless if you believe it's cool to brag about illegal activities on an open forum.

Check this out and you'll know why they piss off so many companies.
It's actually pretty funny, regardless of the morals involved or not.

It consists of letters from companies to them, and their replies to the companies.
