How come there has not been an influx of all the "pierats R bad !!!11" people?

Either way, it makes for a good feeling of well being knowing that the good fight can be discussed properly.

Though I do agree that the they should have beheaded one of the beasts many heads and not just kicked it in the pants, I'm sure they still feel the sting however.

And as for the Hollywood producers and distributors going bankrupt ????? Are you crazy?!
A brief snapshot - you know there are many more movies still airing.

Avatar-------------------- $749,766,139 since December 18 2009
Alice in Wonderland--- $334,191,110 since March 5 2010
Iron Man 2--------------- $312,128,345 since May 7 2010
Salt----------------------- $116,451,621 since July 23 2010
Robin Hood------------- $105,269,730 since May 14 2010
The book of Eli--------- $94,835,059 since January 15 2010
Hot tub time machine-- $50,287,556 since March 26 2010

Even HOT TUB TIME MACHINE made 50mill.


Those poor hollywood types will be eating 2 minute noodles pretty soon if this keeps up!!!



That is why I say 4chan needs to find a way to cancel all MPAA credit cards and bank accounts and just delete the money. forget stealing and just make those bastards hurt. GO 4Chan! Hack the planet!

Gee, now THIS is the ATS crowd that I know and love. I'll still be waiting for the paid trolls to come in and defend the record and movie companies who have invited their own demise.
If the companies weren't so greedy maybe we could afford to go to the movies, and if we like what we see, we would go out and buy the DVD for our home libraries. Same with music, but then that is another whole new topic

4chan is slowly working its way up from the depths of hell...

If you would have told me 2 years ago that 4chan have committed FOUR acts of heroism in a two month period, I would have called you crazy.

/b/ may be the most vile place on the internet...but they're also the most powerful.

What were they?

Just out of interest?

The puppy thing, the cat thing, the MPAA and what else?

I think the fact that they have not shown up may lend credence to the idea that they are staff members operating from the MPAA network. Maybe the DDOS actually affected their main gateway preventing the effective use of the organization's network?

Just speculating, but sounds feasible.

Earlier this year, they helped track down a man that admit to having a relationship with his daughter's highschool friend. He was in his late 30's and the girl was just 15. He showed the /b/ forums a pic of the girl who happened to have the name of the highschool on her sweater...

The rest is history

You should be careful about admitting to doing anything online that may be considered illegal. I don't know how that works but you said you were trying to download Halo; I'd recommend editing that out.
Just a friendly concerned internet friend

I think the "Copyright for eternity" crowd is missing because it's really hard to make a case here.
"The end justifies the means"? No, I really would have no idea how to defend the MPAA here.

New Update

Guess the lust for blood has not calmed yet, a new raid is coming into play and this time the target is RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America)


The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) is a trust that represents the recording industry distributors in the United States. Its members consist of record labels and distributors, which the RIAA say "create, manufacture and/or distribute approximately 85% of all legitimate sound recordings produced and sold in the United States".


The announcement flier (with personal edit to follow T/C of ATS)


Don't know whether it will reported by media or not but free info. never harmed anyone. Don't know whether the raid will be successful or not but coming from fail guy it probably won't have any impact so don't hold you're breath. Plus adding that slogan at the bottom will start a @storm anyway and no meaningful action will take place
!

I guess people are sending a message

and it's high time these big corporates listen!!! What say you?

This is a fight that's been in the store for years, and it's finally happening out in the open...

Big bucks and corporate bureaucrats, mainly from the US, facing hordes of skilled hackers with a cause, from everywhere on the planet... or in other words, the people VS big business. Now here's an interesting football match to follow! Victory of the latter is somewhat predictable, though.

Order from Chaos. I said it back when they tracked down the puppy girl and I'll say it again, these folks are a real force to be reckoned with.. Now the real question is who is in charge?

I'll say people are incharge...the collective hivemind is what makes it tick. You see people don't care as long as you leave them alone. When corporations like these start messing with people..do this..don't do that...is when the something emerges from inside us (yeh apart from the morning dump
)...that "thing" is incharge.

Moreover, crooks, like the corporate pigs running the MPAA, are ALWAYS the same, no matter where they're from or how big or rich they are...

Always trying to fool us and steal us until they find themselves in the situation where they have a lot of angry people against them, and their security and well-being gets threatened.

Then they run away, if they are lucky enough to not get caught and hanged by the testicles.

Well, the ones who actually decide the ratings for films are mostly just ordinary parents. Also, two religious figures involved with the process as well.

That's right. Conservatives are in charge of rating films. Fun huh?
