im all for breaking this thing.
it was used to filter out REAL crimes, not big business is muscling its way to get barely crime crime filtered the same way as REAL crimes?
let 100 guilty go than to imprison 1 innocent.
in this case its like the prison only holds people who killed 10 people or more and they will be put to death for it. and this judge decides that this person who defended himself in a bar fight (by beating the ever loving s*** out of the other person) gets sent there too.
im all for the jail break. this is tech ment to keep the worst of the WORST off the internet, not some copyright bulls***
filters were created for real crime not for downloading things that may or may not be legal.i say go for it and break the filters.
and to the MPAA you can come over and lick my welsh corgi's butt.he needs a good cleaning and i know the MPAA can clean up poop good.
that is all they are good for.
can't wait till your organization implodes.
You know what really angers me about this, something that really grinds my god damn gears?
The attention it gets. The god damn attention it gets. Piracy.... the news articles, the anti-piracy agencies, law enforcement is getting involved, the courts, hell even the governments of the world. You would think that piracy is the worst crime one could commit on the internet.
While something much more severe gets little to no attention. Just look as child endangerment and child pornography. For god damn sakes people children are being exploited and raped, the rape recorded and shared over the internet. Piracy has gotten the attention of the news media, anti piracy groups have formed, armies of lawyers, millions of dollars being spent,
law enforcement gets diverted now to get involves, courts have endless cases they handle,
the governments around the globe now pass laws involving it. All this god damn attention on piracy. Do you see any real issues like those involving the very lives of children getting nearly this much attention?

Well, actually, copyright violation is a 'REAL' crime... But aside from that argument, this is the planet Earth where the above statement is a hopeful one at best. US, UK, Etc. all would much rather screw over thousands of innocents for the acts of very few guilty. Doesn't matter.
And it's not just things like this; In the US, the fight for gun rights are in the same boat. Millions of legal and safe practicing hunters and sportsmen are constantly threatened by the acts of a very few. Same thing here, a few jerks trade illegal crap and they block the entire public... IMHO, real mature way to handle it... (rolling eyes)
I think they are going about this the wrong way. They should be suing any and all advertisers on these pirate sites. These companies are the ones paying to keep that content up there, giving profits to thieves. Break the business model by stopping the advertising money.
Why don't any of these muppets learn? Look into the reason why people pirate. You will most likely find responses as "DVD/BluRay's are too expensive" (you can lower the price by ditching the 'extras' and just put the god damn movie on it, thats all many people really want), "I want to play it on any of my devices without messing about with DRM" (sell without DRM! People are getting around it anyway), "I can't get it in XYZ country as it isn't sold there", as someone else stated just sell it online at a reasonable cost and let people download it (SD/HD whatever the users chooses) and get rid of these artificial boundaries that say you can only play this DVD in XYZ country, common its not called the "Global Village" for nothing!!
All Newzbin2 does is organize the content of usenet in an easily searchable format. Even the ISPs give access to usenet. If you are going to block Newzbin2, you will need to filter out every other site that provides the same type service, not just block the one. Piracy might be a real crime, but violent crime rates are around the world are off the charts; Apple has used the Ipod, Ipad and Itunes to make a huge dent in Piracy by offering customers a better service and reasonable prices. MPAA and RIAA should have gotten the message. I would bet they are both involved in illegal activities in their own piracy prevention measures.

No need to bet on that one. They have broken many laws, both copyright and others. One interesting case was where they sent out 'Network monitoring' software to a number of universities (because obviously suing university students is a smart/ethical business practice), and in doing do violated the license agreement of the software they were distributing.
After the whole napster debacle I voted the only way that truly matters. I stopped purchasing media/going to movies/ect... from anyone/anything affiliated with the MPAA or RIAA.
I wanted to see cpt. america last night. Two options. 3dbullshit @ 8:30pm & "1dbullshit @ 10:30pm. This was how they staggered all the major releases. If you want to enjoy the movie at a decent time, You are forced to pay the extra 5 (16 usd) and see it in 3d. The movie is **** in 3d. Not worth it at all.
The over-all greed is appalling.
Additionally, if they streamed movies in HD (great idea), people will capture, pirate & resell for profit. This is likely the main reason they don't do it.

in america we done have guns just to hunt.
our nation was founded on a violent uprising of an oppressive government, and they knew the day would come again for a violent uprising.
coppyright violations are civil crimes, with jail time only if you cant pay.
no one but the people who make the movies b**** about piracy, or about music not selling
child porn (real cp, not the bulls*** that kids do with digital cameras, i mean child abduction kind) on the other hand, is a real crime, involving for the most part rape, and more or less damaging the child.
normal people world wide want to kill the people who do this (and mistakingly take out anger on any pedophile, regardless if they committed any crime)
