Re: UK piracy crackdown

I can't see how they can trace this for stuff streamed from say putlocker etc

And for torrents, they're going to have to have someone / a system join the swarm in popular torrents surely and then scrape all the IPs and try and resolve them to customers?

Not worried about this to be honest.

Re: UK piracy crackdown

Things I get on torrents are usually rare and difficult to get elsewhere, often because they're several decades old, so it's unlikely that a plant would join a swarm that's often only a couple of peers. Not into watching new films, most of which are very poor IMHO, and most of the old series I've already got.

Yes.

how do you think all those people got caught when the 'speculative invoicing' thing was a going concern. It's also common knowledge the film studios etc do that also, there's been cases in America where kids have been caught that way.

If you're torrenting illegal media without a VPN or Seedbox, you're running quite a risk. I wouldn't do it personally these days it's not 2002 anymore.

Re: UK piracy crackdown

People only got "caught" by speculative invoicing when they wrongly assumed the IP address was sufficient evidence to find them personally liable in a civil court, and paid up to avoid being dragged in front of the beak. It turns out that British courts will not find someone liable for copyright infringement based on an IP address because it only identifies an address, and not the user responsible.

But they sever that connection if told to do so by the courts?
