Internet protocol (IP) addresses associated with several major Hollywood studios were recently logged using bittorrent networks to share films created by rival studios, according to a report on peer-to-peer blog TorrentFreak.

Working with the bittorrent tracking service ScanEye, TorrentFreak identified IP addresses registered to Paramount, Disney, Warner Bros., 20th Century Fox and Sony Pictures sharing films, television shows and games. A “WhoIs” search confirms one of the addresses TorrentFreak published does indeed belong to Paramount.

The same studios are the principle driving force behind the forthcoming “six strikes” anti-piracy scheme that will log IP addresses engaged in media piracy and deliver warnings to users.


Well ain't this interesting...


I knew initially big studios were the developers of the sharing software most people do or have used, but, to find out they use torrent sites is amusing.

Now, I understand this could possibly be some guys downloading stuff, which could or could not be legal, but, the idea of the studios leaking competitors films and content is much more appealing.

Just thought I would share this to show a little more corruption to big corps.

Any thoughts?

Pred...


guys guys calm down... it's not the studios, it's people who work there!

abut anyway. continue laughing...

While you fully could be right, it could also be more sinister...

What makes you so sure that it was just employees?

I dont understand what you're trying to get at with claiming entrapment and this news article. Care to explain it further? Just because the companies that are suing are also doing what they are suing for does not make it right or is considered entrapment. It is illegal in both instances unless these were some sort of encrypted files and there was a mutual agreement between the two companies but even then I doubt you could do that over a public tracker.


If a policeman offers to provide you an illegal product, only to leverage that against you criminally, that is entrapment.

If a studio provides you with an illegal product, only to leverage that against you criminally, that is entrapment.

Wrong. Police can put a car on the road to be stolen. If you steal it that is not entrapment. They can't go and have an undercover cop tell you about it and suggest you steal it, all they can do is create a situation for you to break the law on your own. Same with dressing a girl up as a prostitute. If you go to the girl and make the move, that is not entrapment. This is similar to a 'bait' car. They put the product there creating the scenario. This is not entrapment, at all.

I know this industry somehow


on the other had, if you would check IPs from... police station for example, you would find they watch movies and porn as well. Or some church IPs..
It's not the film studio or police station it is always people... who else??

I have slept so little over recent weeks that it is wholly possible that I am out of my mind here. Thought processes are definitely getting a little looser.


BUT, i believe you just pointed out the problem. If walking up to someone and giving them the plans for a crime, then luring them into that crime, is considered entrapment....then our FBI entraps the hell out of people.

There are 300 million people in the US. And, I would bet that we have about 300 million different viewpoints on what entrapment is.

To me, the long and the short of it, if you provide the means to violate the law, you are complicit in the crime. Be you a movie studio, a police officer, or a lowly plebe like me.

First off to the nay Sayers what makes you think large corporations are not trying to hurt the sales of other large corporations that they are in competition with? Secondly The site bit torrent freak is owned by paramount studios. Its a bit torrenting site dedicated to providing stolen bits from a multitude of users that once completely downloaded equals a stolen product. If a corporation is considered a person in the eyes of the law they are contributing to illegal activity. These same people "corporations" who provided the means and the way are compiling a list of users that used their system. It's total entrapment as well as conspiracy to effect legislative change though entrapment.
