ThePirateBay is no longer safe


www.easyresearch.se

Understanding online norms and values is essential to developing relevant and effective laws and policies. The purpose of this survey is to help researchers to better understand habits and norms within the file-sharing community.

The Pirate Bay undertakes this study in cooperation with the Cybernorms Research Group, a group of researchers mainly from the Department of Sociology of Law at Lund University, Sweden, but also affiliated with the Lund University Internet Institute.

Be careful what you download on TPB in the future. They are watching and they will develop new laws to regulate file sharing based on the information they receive.

"This research is first of all aiming at creating a better base of knowledge for policy makers. Without adequate information it is impossible to adapt the legal systems in a legitimate way.”

Wouldn't they only effect those in Sweden?
As of now, Pirate-Bay is completely legal there.

From your own source, TPB is a part of this whole thing. Would they really be shooting themselves in the foot like that?

They're trying to set up laws that are MORE LENIENT than the CIPSA PIPA ACTA or whatever

Yes but if TPB gets shut down, you can definitely expect many other torrent sites to go down as well. TPB is the 71st most visited website in the world and the 12th most visited site in Sweden (www.alexa.com...).

That is why we all need to be careful how we use this website from now on.

Yeah, but people in the know tend to use other systems such as newsgroups and IRC to download. So this may hit the more mainstream file sharing, but people will just be forced underground and use technologies that are a lot more difficult to police.

TPB is still up in the U.K, and most of the ISPs here Sky, BT, Comcast are supposed to ban it from there networks. Virgin is the only one contesting the ban. Simple answer is when they do implement the ban use a free proxy such as Hotspot Shield, there are many others. They will never stop us file sharing because the people who use these file sharing networks simply know more than the ISP providers do. HACK THE PLANET!!!

It never was safe,
anyone not using private
trackers should be very careful
and find a private tracker...

thats not even 100% full proof
but it is 100% safer then public trackers..

Ace Torrents, Bitsoup, Demonoid, Digital Hive, iLoveTorrents, IP Torrents, Torrent Kit are a few good fast and reliable private trackers if any of you are looking for some. There not always open for sign up, but keep checking and im sure some will be open for sign up at some point. Also TVlinks is great for streaming stuff free.

Before torrents I had no problem getting almost anything .

Private boards and servers are still the answer and you can share encrypted torrents with you friends ..

FTP servers are still an option just slower .

Legislation will only slow down the traffic for a while and only for those who don't catch on .

Quoted for truth.

Also, the more public a site is, the less safe it is. The fact that TPB is the most well known public tracker site in the history of the internet means it's about as un-safe as they get - and always has been.

If TPB ever was remotely safe, it was long before any of us heard about it.

Since TPB switched to Magnet-links earlier this year, trackers are obsolete.

It's kinda the same thing eMule/eDonkey introduced some years ago, called KAD

The best way to "protect" yourself is using a IPFilter, or software like Peerblock. No-one will ever be 100% safe.

I think it is terrible and disgusting how 'they' are trying to restrain the freedoms of the citizens of this planet. It is something like reverse evolution...instead of becoming smarter becoming more stupid. We, as a species should enjoy our technological progress and evolved consciousness....Why are there allways people or a group of people trying to do what is wrong for all of us..?

For what lame reason are 'they' against sites like TPB..? When all arguments are reduced to zero it will come probably down to less profit, less money for the family tree...the paranoid compulsive need to control. I find it really sad that We The People of this planet have little to stop the abomination that is going on....

Exactly how, except for you apparent paranoia, does this post make TPB any less safe than it was yesterday?

It doesn't.

The other poster is correct: It was NEVER safe to begin with. You take a huge risk by using this torrent site or any other. Period.

Unless you know what you are doing, I suggest that you stay away from ANY torrent site if you are that paranoid...

And, you just called yourself out and exposed yourself as a torrent user, so you just did make it less safe for yourself to continue to use TPB...

Do any of you know how to hide yourself on the Net? Surf over here:
pcflank.com... and click on Quick test.
Here is what the readout should be, if you are hidden:

IP Address test

The test could not determine your IP address.

The test has found that the IP address used by your computer cannot be scanned. This commonly occurs because of a firewall program on your computer and/or you are connected to the Internet through a proxy-server or your ISP uses Network Address Translation (NAT) to share IP addresses.

This means the test cannot check your system as the results of the testing would be incorrect.

I run Fedora Linux, Firefox 12, proxy network connection, and an HTTP proxy on Firefox. (AutoProxy)

rest assure they are not..

tpb did that to limit litigation
to have a better defense.
they will still call it pirating be it a *magnet link*
or a tracker...

peer block does not work... people on comcast
have still gotten copyright letters sent even with peer block
downloading a popular new bootleg in the *swarm*

You are forgetting that the American government, and especially the media/copyright cartels, do not recognise the national sovereignty of any other country on the planet. They have amply proven in the past, that warez traders will be persued to the ends of the Earth, and cannot expect to be able to exist anywhere.

Monsanto have proven with their own attitudes and behaviours, that intellectual property law, is ultimately law against life itself. I fear that the majority of us will not discover the truth of that, until it is too late.

Too much fear mongering in this thread, there are millions and millions of users on tpb and most of them are on share ips, it's impossible to track people down.
