some of the new legislation that is being forced onto countries worldwide has a major loophole in it,
it has enabled groups to data base your online activity, and store that information,
if you are caught downloading copy protected content, the data base holds all your other downloads.

when the laws take effect, your isp will have to submit your info to the copywrite holder if they claim that you have infringed them.

there are sights where you can see if your info has been collected yet.

the idea i think is that when the law changes take effect, people will be slow to adapt to the changes and the information will be collected automatically and this will in effect make people criminals for behaviour that is ingrained into there internet experience.

weather collection your info for your prosecution later doesn't bother you,
does the fact that you are being data based and prosicuted AUTOMATICALLY
not make us potentially guilty of incriminating ourselfs for their profit?

does the fact that prison populations are forecast to increase soon worry anyone?

the people doing this seek to set a vast copy trolling exercise that makes the average users info against them.
when you are targeted a letter will arrive with a "paynow" figure,
or you can goto court to defend yourself.

the sopa and pipa and other legislation are designed in such a way as to enforce these copywrite "automatic" databasing of your information into a profitable data mining operation.

i have heard that the very same people who are setting up this automated system are responsible for setting up the original downloads for the early peer to peer sharing networks.

(i cant find any supporting evidence for this so i dont claim it as fact)
but if the model for profit was to encourage piracy then to prosecute every one for piracy,
then a sudden change in laws would catch most of the population off gaurd and there would be many people who would then be liable for fines and imprisonment.

in this model you would have no costs for marketing or distrabution of product and the focus would be on paying off legislators or simply confusing them lol

and then the cost of a bunch of letters sent to those that infringe.

this is only possable if law makers pass corperate agenda as bills and legislation into law,
which sadly they seem all to keen to do.

this means that to large players ie hollywood,
its more profitable to give you the material and claim infringement and scare you into payment,
than it is to market and distribute the material.

you are being data dased with the help of your legislators, for the recording industry, to make you into criminals


the following is a link to a sight that will display your downloads that are data based,
under t and c i am not sure if i can link it so i will let you decide weather to use this service or not

PLEASE NOTE THIS SIGHT WILL DISPLAY YOUR DOWNLOADS AND PERSONAL AND OR PRIVATE INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR WEB TARFFIC ADVANCED USERS ONLY

REMOVED FOR PRIVACY REASONS, as member pointed out it may be a trap of sorts to use this service

IF THIS SIGHT CAN TRACK YOU SO CAN THE MPAA RIAA AND OTHER HOLLYWOOD INDUSTRIES

when it is this simple to prosecute you do you think they will have mercy?

hollywood finds it easyer to make you a criminal than sell there product
how sad the new profit model looks like extortion from where is sit.

Oh no, someone was using my wifi.

Could that link you provide be a little trap? It's fairly certain anyone going there is doing so because they are worried!!!
Its an easy way to collect the IP of those who consider they might be guilty. All they have to do then is contact the isp of those foolish enough to visit the link. IMO.

The website seems a little suspicious. it says
sers in database: 55,072,000
Torrents: 123,100
Files: 2,113,000
Files size: (115.15 TB)

So 55 million users and only 123k torrents?

I do not download illegal copy written material so nothing came up on me. Has it tracked any of you?

Please provide us with link to the legislation you are talking about.

Since the movie and music industry didn't get with the times, their only viable money-making strategy seems to be to sue and imprison their own customers. How sad...

It is easy to be invisible and anonymous on the net if you are careful and thoughtful.

Also, you can avoid worry about prosecution by not downloading anything that is likely to be covered by copyright.

My personal belief is that as the distribution companies are not the creators of the works they distribute and are therefore not the copyright owners. They are doing exactly what other copyright infringers are doing and are themselves misusing copyright law to support their business model as if they themselves were exempt from it.

The site you linked to will only indicate those offenders who have fixed IP's (usually businesses) and is false security. Appearing "in the clear" on their website will not be the same as what packet captures (or the data forensics from those captures) from ISP's may reveal.

Why in Gods name are people using torrents still? Sure, it allows massive media moves. But it is trackable and easy to embed viruses into.

Download your media from streamed flash applets.

Good advice


Anything I want to watch or listen to I find on youtube, if I want to keep a copy I simply look in my browser cach(IE), just add the flv extention.

So they have the past year and a half if that much, if it was even worth it's weight in thought, it's a show boat tactic to garner google ad sense money. Bout all I can tell, clever though, very clever.

Only if you are unwilling to "contribute" to the re-election campaign of the standing powers. Just like done with so-called, "random" tax audits. Your the wrong party, your in for pressure.

Notice I didn't cite either political party for good cause.

it will criminalize vast numbers of people and with a few high profile cases people others will be scared into paying the pay now rather than goto court

very sad indeed

i beleive that the clamp down on copyright laws is in preporation of new technolagy, like 3D printers.
within a short few years we could be seeing 3D printers that could make anything from clothes to electronics and all you have to do is download the schematics (and pay for them of course), if this is actually as close as predicted then they certainly wouldnt want us to download these schematics 'illegaly' would they

people need to be told,
and thank you on your suggestion.
it would look like the recording industry has the law makers in their pockets,
i dont support copybarrons
or piracy,

but to make a profit model from premptive tracking and databasing of users
JUST IN CASE you wrong them is disgusting,

WASHINGTON -- A U.S. federal judge has again sided with the recording industry in its efforts to subpoena the names of music downloaders, upholding a portion of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act that requires Internet service providers to turn over names of alleged copyright infringers. Critics said the law provides a cheap and easy way for music companies, or anyone else, to find out the names of anonymous Internet users.

this system is being automated

one request no evidence only accusations are necessary

Allot of people have access to software like autocad that can make these models. So there should be quiet a bit of free "schematics".
