Yiikes... thats akward. I had no idea, although that may help to explain why there isnt much more news on TPB today, although the twitter feed is interesting.

So then i have to ask, why hasnt it been working properly all day, one minute it works and then it doesnt....

They don't seem to have a hi-res section for browsing. Do we have to trawl through hundreds of pages of CD sized rips to get to the good stuff?

One out of one-thousand; TPB is nothing special, it has just become the DMCA's whipping boy. The poster child for file-sharing portals, as it were.
Bit torrent sucks if you're anywhere outside of major population centres, anyway.

There is a hi res section... im not sure if i can post the link on ats though.

On the main page got 'top 100' and then under video you will see hi-res movies


It has the top hi res downloads and bd versions.

Corporations can try as hard as they like but they will not be able to stop these kinds of Torrent sites from existing and sharing copyright material. Shut down one and four will take its place. This has been happening since Napster and does not look like slowing down any time soon. Corporations should spend more time developing digital content and less time on finding ways to sue their consumers. With greater investment in quality and inexpensive digital media, companies could greatly reduce the amount of piracy we currently see.

Fascism:

a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.


Software piracy:

The copyright infringement of software (often referred to as software piracy) refers to several practices which involve the unauthorized copying of computer software. Copyright infringement is the unauthorized or prohibited use of works under copyright, infringing the copyright owner's exclusive rights, such as the right to reproduce or perform the copyrighted work, or to make derivative works.


Let's get a sense of proportion here, people. Copyright infringement isn't a fundamental human right, it's actually against the law. Regardless of your views on the quality of software and "Big Business", no one has a right to infringe on anyone else's copyright.

Why arent the uploaders of the original content being held accountable or tracked down, they upload alot of media, surely they can be tracked... not that i want that either.

So now instead of holding the uploader or the website accountable, the companies are trying to hold the ISP provider accountable.... really?

Look you would also do anything to protect your work no? It costs them millions per movie to produce, now we still have good theatre hits people go to the big screen for first viewing. But selling dvd/blue-ray's is a pain. New movies (here) went from 39,95 (2001) to 15,95 (2011)! that's a big drop.

Now the bolded part:
Do you know how hard it is to trackdown, collect evidence, work a solid case, and go to court with millions of individual people!?!?

You first need to tackle the legal issue that ISP's are NOT allowed to release private/personal information about there costumers. This is a big issue here in Holland, we had several cases where the biggest ISP's here refused to supply personal information to the police and actually WIN it in court! So they didn't need to give it up.

Also specially in the USA they have the most retarded legal system when it comes to piracy! Seriously remember the case where a mother of 2 kids was found guilty for sharing 3 songs on limewire and was fined over 1 million dollars!!! Seriously they can sleep at night knowing they just completely ruined a woman's and there 2 childrens lives over 3 songs!!! They can never afford that in a million years.

What is the benefit of those stupid verdicts? They KNOW they are not getting the money, why those absurd claims?

I've always thought it wasnt illegal to actually download it once it's online, the only person that can be held accountable is the provider or person that uploaded the file originally... well i hope thats true, it does make sense though.




Last October, On the Cheap, the California company that owns rights to Danielle Staub Raw, sued those 5,000 illegal downloaders in San Francisco federal court. In filing the suit, On the Cheap joined what has become a swell of litigation between porn movie producers and alleged porno pirates. According to an anonymously-administered website that tracks the data, there have been more than 340 suits claiming video piracy (some assert illegal downloading of non-porn films). The twist in more than 300 of the suits is that the movie producers don’t know the identities of the downloaders. So rather than sue named defendants, they file complaints against John Doe downloaders — sometimes naming thousands of anonymous defendants in a single complaint, as in On the Cheap’s suit against Danielle Staub fans.

That tactic has put the porn piracy cases on the cutting edge of copyright law in the digital era. Movie producers have asked courts to issue subpoenas demanding information from Internet service providers that permits them to identify the alleged illegal downloaders

Going after the downloaders themselves is becoming a business in its own right. Be Aware

Ok and while we work our asses off every single day for years on end and yet the majority of us will never earn as much in a lifetime as an a grade 'actor' in one movie... let alone the companies and many other people involved..

It's crap!

I work alot harder in my job than standing in front of a camera looking pretty and being something other than yourself.

I wont goto the movies or buy the overpriced dvd's for that very reason, wake up!!

That's not an excuse. Just because you disagree with someone's vocation or business model, it doesn't give you the moral or legal right to infringe on their copyright. You're more than happy to enjoy the fruits of their labour but you think it's ok to take it for free without paying. That's not right.

But American football players, Basketball players, Soccer players, etc is ok to earn that insane amount? And you watch that with joy right?

Just in case you don't know, everything that is 'commercial' people are being fithly rich, no matter what product it is! Wether it's movies, music, sports, games, hair products, gadgets, your computer. Look at Bill Gates! Not an actor but was the wealthiest man on earth for a long time!

And you come with your stupid anoying 'wake up' claim LOL!

something that bothers me is that why is the world targetting piratebay? There are 100s and 100s of torrent sites but why do they focus on piratebay?
