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.

i think that this sight is to show you what is being data based,
and displays the tech being used to gather evidence against you,

am i wrong?

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.

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


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


there surely will, but the free schematics wont have 'labels' and 'logos', thats like asking someone why they buy they clothes at abercrombie and fitch when matalan sells clothes as well

ISPs are currently up in arms over being asked to pay 25% of the costs of establishing a system for sending out warning letters under the Digital Ecomony Act, with ISPs hinting that costs of the scheme would be passed on to customers.

everyone profits except the user who is charged with the cost on conviction or by agreeing to the paynow figuar

Yes on the site, the maker of the site said:



Suren Ter-Saakov · Top Commenter Eric, we don't bother ourselves to separate dynamic IPs. The site is just for show. However we have time-stamps. 3.3.3.3 might be a dynamic IP - however it belonged to a certain person at 12:12am 12/12/2011. Besides DHT allows us to get a user's machine fingerprint. So even if it's a dormitory... Reply · 194 · · December 10, 2011 at 9:49am


( again source is on the site in question in the facebook section )

Also on this:




Ter-Saakov said he believes youhavedownloaded.com indexes about 20 percent of the file-sharing activity on the Internet. He maintains that the site was created merely as a proof-of-concept, and that it doesn’t have any commercial application.


Source

Yes it's a clever proof of concept, at the sametime a means to rake in google ad sense money, since he is using the fear and curiosity as a means to garner traffic, it's extremely genius really.

How else to make people goto your site, without forcing them via a link? Create a site in which users need to enter in their ip to see if they are found out. Well of course people eve if they know they haven't done such will enter their Ips, just to make sure.

Hence your motive hidden in plain sight.

according to how i understand this system,
if you were on the system as not being "in the clear"
then a request from the system to the isp would supply ip/time info,
and all the "evidence" would be used to send an infringement letter.

one to you from your isp, and one from the isp to the claim holder,

automated and the cost of "compliance" is passed of to the consumer at the isp level,
you pay for your own prosecution in a sick way, in the cost to comply

ok thank you for your explanation,
this sight is for show BUT if he has done this it shows how others might be tempted,
the isps make money each time a record is produced for copy-write infringement reasons.

WHAT STOPS groups like the mpaa or riaa from trying these tactics?

they recently asked for 12 trillion dollars in a court case?wtf?

although i see the OP's side of this...nobody yet has said anything about the actual creator of the content, being paid for his work. companies and/or individuals that provide products on the internet are entitled to be compensated. if you do not want to pay for that content, don't buy it. finding ways to download content that was never deemed to be free is simply stealing. why is this such a hard concept to understand?

the problem as i see it, as users, we are sometimes not privy to the fact that the content is protected, but, as with anything, common sense comes into play. taking a little time to verify that it is or isn't seems to be a reasonable course. with that said, the creators of that protected content should be able to easily provide that information.

Thank you. I was hoping someone would point this out.

Hey I think tomorrow I am going to buy a domain and start a web site saying I track all the porn you've ever watched before. If you come to my website and look it up (ie: generate traffic for my ad aps) I can show you!!





In respect to torrent files. Yes, some public torrent files out there are traps. Sites such as a certain pirate site which I won't mention are notorious for having "tagged" torrents. There are even law firms out there who represent certain clients, who intentionally put out and track ip's on a torrents seed. Wanna be safe? Use private sites, and if your super paranoid, proxies.

Same old argument, it is NOT theft, it is breach of copyright, nothing has been stolen. To steal something you have to deprive someone else of that said item, duplication is not theft.

This does however mean I think that the creators of the work should not be compensated for their work, on the contrary I support the artists and creators of work, they put in the effort and deserve to be paid. But all this is nothing to do with the creator of anything, its to do with publishers screaming cos they are not getting their cut. If it was about the creators then people who wrote songs for example would not be getting just a couple of cents per song sold while Apple and its iTunes were raking in 30 cents for each song sold, tell me in what world is that fair?

Publishers and distributors have pretty much killed of creativity in this world, they want it wrapped up so they take the lions share of everything and screw the artist, the world has change, the internet saw to that and these publishers are being found out for what they are, leeches who offer nothing but take everything, they can't adapt and people see through the sham and they are doing what ever they can to keep the illusion alive and if not they will sue all and sundry just to get a piece of the pie. Disgusting the lot of them
