I know this company, and Matt's business practices are questionable. I suspect the company he is talking about is one that I am very familiar with, and I will leave it at that.

They were investigated for pirating videos a couple of years ago, and Matt and/or his company has been investigated by the FBI several times. He changed the company name a couple of years ago. He always claimed the FBI was investigating one of his customers. There is more than meets the eye here or more than what he is saying.

Bottom line here is this company has been under investigation in the past, so this is a legitimate investigation.

This is not good.

They could have ask the ISP to cooperate and got a court order.

Most ISP's comply when a court order is presented.

This is not good at all.

Goes to show you who has the power in this country.

We get to pay the taxes and a few people at the top get to play God.

At least we know who the government actually works for. The taxpayers are robbed of trillions and get nothing but pillow talk, but the entertainment industry gets a film pirated and the FBI moves in a task force.

Why is this ominous if they are stealing the movie content? Piracy is a CRIME. Anyone who knowingly aides or abets a criminal activity is engaging in conspiracy, and I can guarantee you that a server with that few clients is going to have plenty of time to know what they are hosting.
Godaddy.com they are not.

A b-rate comic book movie....with a multimillion dollar budget and future revenues at stake. You' be surprised at how little many movie investors ever get back in royalties, and lot never even recoup their costs.

If anyone wants to bitch about RIAA or another other company that is rightfully protecting their assets, kindly offer to work 40-plus hours a week for no pay since you feel entitled to ask performers to do the same.

exactly this is definitely a little fishy
and
makes one wonder what could be lying underneath all that we are able to see in this case
sad to see they can do whatever they want constantly all the time

The better question is what did the website contain or who was using the website that the FBI felt is so nessarry to raid and shut down that person or group before that information could get out on the web. Technically speaking its the NSA's job to police the web unofficially so this begs the question why wasnt the NSA called in before hand there for it would have never made the news?

And another thing if the FBI was so interested in this mans or groups affairs they could have just as easily done the same thing hiding behind secrecy to conduct there raid and nothing would have ever been known about it.

Why this is just a off hand guess Im going to guess there was somthing someone or some group didnt want on the web and the fed's went on a ego trip and raided in the name of national security.

That gives parties like me a reason to go looking for what the fed didnt want out and make it public.


More often then not theres something that someone or some group didnt want out that could have made a department or someone in power look bad and they used there influece to shut down the site. The question is who and what it was not to hard to find out if we start to dig.

When I first saw this topic I was very concerned that the government was starting to curtail the first amendment. But reading further I can see that this seems to be more of a waste of government resources than anything else. If this was all due to the Wolverine movie, then I feel that it’s a bit of a waste; can't our FBI find better things to do that are of higher importance and a greater public good? Also, it strikes me as unusual that the FBI would need to completely shut down the ISP to perform their investigation. Normally in high tech crime investigations the law enforcement agency will have to provide somewhat specific detail of what it is they are looking for, as well as where it is believed to be located. I have to agree with the person that pointed out that the ISP is likely the target of the raid and not a "client".

Has anyone in the area contacted the court for a copy of the affidavit for the search warrant? That would clear up a lot about this incident.

The name of the Spic or Special Agent In charge that was at the raid name is "FBI Agent Allyn Lynd".

FBI SPIC LINK

Maybe sense the FBI felt to conduct a raid without giving any reason or cause as to why, maybe we should see if we can dig up a few pictures if Mr. Allyn Lynd.

Usually when this type of thing happens it involves sex crimes.
I would not b surprised at all if that's the case.

It appears nobody has taken a much notice to your work, I hope what you found is true rather than what everyone one else is assuming. Well done


BTW I hope you are going to join the ATS Press Corps

The speculation in IT circles is that this is related to the pirating of the upcoming X-Men movie. No less ominous... in fact, even more incredible that copyright infringement investigation may result in an entire hosting service-center being shut down.





(running off to make sure the ATS off-site back-ups are up to date)

The new xmen movie origns of wolverine are already the top downloaded movie on all torrent site's.
So i doubt this one provider had all the seeders..if ya get my point.


i say it has to do with this.

What a pathetic form of governance we have created for ourselves.


So in an effort to enforce the "property" interests of one party, the government has the right to destroy the property interests of anyone else they choose, if it will further their investigation?


God forbid a criminal suspect should ever make his escape by cutting through your yard. You may just find the state seizing your home in its criminal investigation.


What a bunch of yahoos.

It is done everyday.

If your kid or a guest in your home accesses the internet for child porn or any other illegal activity you could find yourself locked up, looking for a lawyer and evicted from your abode.

You are guilty until you prove otherwise; if you can.
