I think that the bigger problem is that the torrent system, is used every day for LEGAL file sharing as well as the erm... uh... well...

To go after these trackers also hurts the ones that use them for non-nefarious purposes like Luxology who distribute Modo via the torrent system or Fedora who put out their OS the same way....

I've pretty much known this all along and its why alot of music videos are made and put up free on youtube, and foreign music that no one would have heard or purchased.

There is a whole new era of music that empowers talented people to become their own marketeers and create their own businesses, and this is in my opinion the sole reason for the copyright laws.

It is to try and stop those who can, from making it big, when they wish to control the music industry and use their CIA children for their NLP and they don't like the empowerment of the internet model of business.

Don't worry. The entire internet is scheduled to be shut down.

The internet is causing lots of problems.

First of all, too much is free.

All this time people spend in free activity on the internet means less activity to tax and control.

So, it's all got to go.

Enjoy it while it lasts.

You see, it's not just about copyright infringement, and illegal downloads, it's about all activity that produces cashless transactions.

The economy is collapsing, because people's attention is now turned to things that don't cause flows through the banks.

All the posts on forums like this, free readers, free posters, spending hours on the net, but not spending any coin.

There was a time when the free internet stuff was an advantage to the economy. The existance of "free" enticed many people to "buy computers" so that they could get onto the internet, and grab all that free stuff. Everyone could see the profit in it. Computers were expensive, yes, but when you calculated how much you'd save in the end by downloading all that free stuff, suddenly computers became cheap and a necessary item on the desktop.

The money that used to flow to the music industry, and film industry, and publishers, and newspapers, etc..etc..now flowed into the pockets of the PC companies, like DELL, and Microsoft, and HP, and IBM, etc..people were spending like crazy on computers, shifting their entertainment cash into the computer industry instead.

But, now it's all over. PC sales are declining. Everyone has their computer already. So, it's time to tighten up the rules, remove the free stuff, and make everybody go back to the world of pay as you go, pay as you do, pay as you think, pay as you look, pay as you hear, pay, pay, pay, get that cash flowing once again, so that it can be taxed, and banks can earn interest, etc..once more.

The whole internet has to be shut down. Already, Iran is considering disconneting their nations web from the rest of the world. The net causes revolutions, and unrest, and makes it difficult for governments and businesses to maintain "control".

So, don't be surprised when forum sites like this are all shut down, because they contain controversial or subversive ideas, etc..free speech is only good when only a few people are dissenting anyway.


I know this might seem all strange to some.

But, think of it. The Music that inspired that Sikh Temple Shooter is probably circulating around on the internet somewhere, inspiring others. To control the shooters, the gov has to control the flow of that music. The best way is just to cut off the channels, take down the web, force people to talk to each other once again face to face to get their music and ideas. And pay, of course, to travel to find and collect that music, so the activity can be taxed and controlled once again.

We've got a few years left before the internet goes dark.

The internet would be up and running by the people and kept up and running. Many people's incomes and businesses are based on this and no one is going to be cutting out that many jobs, so they won't win, and people will be recovering from any grid crashes and their monopolies.

The Ukrainian Government can get away with this because the owner(s) are residing in Mexico so there is no legal action to be taken on either side. Precedent be damned. No one from Mexico is going to fight this. Especially when they are under investigation in Mexico. It's a win win for the USA and the Ukrainian Government looks good.

I am in music and let me tell you one thing for those that don't know. Indie artists not affiliated with a major label are getting #ted on left and right. I'm sure few know that when you as an indie artist independently sell more than 1,000 units online by yourself you are then harassed by these RIAA goons trying to force you to "prove" your copyright. An injunction is filed, money is frozen, and the big fun of getting a lawyer starts. Then you have to prove you're in a music society like ASCAP and that they, not you, are collecting your royalties or else you have "stolen" someone else's music. If you are not in a music society forget gigging at local clubs; if you list your show dates the society agents will come out and put a bug up the club's ear about either 1. violating the said music club's rules about artists music getting played since major labels like Universal have exclusive deals with people like ASCAP that forbids allowing non union members in or 2. ASCAP reporting you to RIAA for not having membership. I have had videos on youtube taken off of original music because they violated "copyright" even though I could prove it was my own creation.

Another friend of mine does music strictly for public domain only. He legally releases all his titles like that and has a small following in Minneapolis. He is constantly harassed by RIAA thugs about "copyright infringement" and last time I talked to him they were trying to patent his songs since they were in "public domain".

It's all a hustle.


That's actually not the first I've heard that. Prior to my current career, I spent most of my 20's playing music, and I still have a lot of friends 'in the biz.' One good friend of mine is contracted by a porn studio to write background music for their films (seriously killer gig....paid a really nice flat fee, spends a month in LA every year tracking the films, and then goes back home and plays bar gigs for fun for the rest of the year). The studios own the music, of course, and he's basically just a paid performer. He and the porn studio get harassed fairly often by various music industry organizations in ways similar to the ones you described, and you can't even get his stuff outside of the porn film for which it was written.

They're not arrested yet, but according to numerous sources they're under criminal investigation in Mexico.

Not sure if this has been posted, but it's starting to seem that this whole demonoid situation is not what it appears..

Interpol has not confirmed that this has even happened and the ISP that hosted Demonoid's site has flat out denied that a raid ever took place.. a lot of this is conjecture .. but one thing is for sure, the ISP says they were not raided.. so that part of the story at least seems to be a fabrication

Tried to shorten this link just because it's so long .. but ATS won't let me ..

Demonoid's Return Uncertain After Law Enforcement Action in Ukraine and Mexico


ColoCall dismissed these claims via email on Tuesday. There was no police raid, the company said. The business relationship with Demonoid was ended for reasons unrelated to the authorities, it said.

The company denied that any data had been seized or that any of its servers had been sealed. Demonoid's owners can still access their data hosted on ColoCall's servers, the company said. However, it didn't know if the website's administrators had already transferred the data to another location.

It seems that while no police raid happened, ColoCall's decision to terminate its contract with Demonoid was partially the result of an inquiry from law enforcement authorities.



One popular theory that's cropping up is that someone close to demonoid may have taken over the domain names and is attempting to sell them for profit.. someone who claims to know the primary admin has said that the owner is working in getting control of the domain names back so that the site can be restored..

The story keeps evolving .. but at least we have official denial from the ISP that was "supposedly" raided saying no raid or server seizures have happened.

I'm keeping my eye on it as well .. it was quite odd seeing the domains go up for sale so quickly, and then now to have the ISP denying a raid is more interesting.. the ISP did apparently have an inquiry from authorities but that's not too surprising .. they very well could have ended their contract because of the denial of service attack that lasted for days.. I'm sure that was hammering their network and wasn't desirable
