      Jemmy, I was talking the other week, to a Cinema owner, who was saying that he can't see a future for his business, he sees not torrent thats killing it. Its the fact people now have 42" screens in their living rooms.

      A lot of software / films get shipped to China, where they are copied ready for both Cinima / DVD release or before they get shipped to the shops for Music release.

      In China the (c) laws don't cover a lot, so the infomation finds it way very quickly onto the torrent uploads and websites.

      James67 No I don't belive they will, but what might happen if enough people vote against the government in power, is that we the people of the UK get a chance to decide if we want to be in Europe or not!

      This makes we wonder, how can just some people buying this stuff might be so keen to upload it and make it available for people they don't even know.
      I have few theories explaining this, more are welcome
      1. As mentioned in a previous post, most companies see the torrents as a cheap and very effective means of advertising, especially the audience who will never purchase their stuff but will promote it and might bring more customers to purchase the stuff
      2. Could it be the rivalry of various companies trying to release each others content via their supported up-loaders in a bid to erode into the rival companies revenue generation.

      I'm pretty sure all the thinking minds in this forum will come out with lots of other possible reasons.

      On personal note, I support reasonably priced legal download of songs and videos without DRM so it could be used on any mobile device you buy or your car or lounge. I look forward to the time when this industry realises this and they come forward with a new business plan which will be beneficial to them as well as the consumer.
      They aint uploaded to Torrents first you know! They are much deeper down underground but quickly find there way mainstream through torrents..
      The Scene as it is known was created to showcase cracking/hacking/supplying talents and not meant as a piracy group to make money. But people soon seen this as a huge money maker be it selling the pirated stuff or creating websites put on some ads and watch people flock to their site and the money.

      A lot of sites have access to the private FTP's (Paid access which is against scene rules but it happenes!) and can supply to your average joe very fast!

      To be honest this isn't going to tackle the root source of the pirated material. Over 90% of pirated films are coming from within the studios themselves from the editing dept.

      Some copies still come with the full camera shot and time codes on them.

      So the movie studios should be really cracking down on security their end as well as targeting the end user, but hey it's easier to step on Joe public than sort out your own rotten security isn't it?

      Well, perhaps you're showing your age -- when I was dating girls ten years my junior I was always appalled by their shallow musical tastes and they were bored by my old 60's and 70's rock bands.
      Yip I'm showing my age, lol. I am like you, I enjoy my 60's, 70's and 80's Rock music as well, also a huge Blues fan but as I've said it's boring plastic manufactured boy/girl bands that get on my nerves.

      I will answer this the best way I can? As an ex Police Officer, I was taught their is only The Law, you are either breaking it, or not, there isn't different amounts of illegal, just legal and not legal (illegal).
      lol, oh the irony of an ex Police Officer talking about what's legal and illegal. I have a m8 who has recently left the force, he told me that there's more contraband being traded around Police stations around the country than the real crooks are trying to sell. Pirates the lot of you.

      Re: Sky Sign Up With BPI To Help Stop Piracy

      Reading details about the MOU, it would appear that it is absolutely pointless any ISP undertaking this.

      The risk of getting caught is minimal, and imho, a complete waste of time.

      4 Signatories will work together on a process whereby internet service customers are informed when their accounts are being used unlawfully to share copyright material and pointed towards legal alternatives. In the first instance ISP signatories will each put in place a 3 month trial to send notifications to 1000 subscribers per week identified to them by music rights holders, to agreed levels of evidence, as having been engaged in illicit uploading or downloading. Based on evidence from the trial, which will be analysed and assessed by all signatories, Ofcom will agree with Signatories an escalation in numbers, widening of content coverage, and a process for agreeing a cap.
      My bold. 1000 letters a week is nothing but a token reaction to the IP's reported to the big SIX ISP's. And I would bet £100 that there are more than a 1000 instances of illegal downloads per hour on any of those ISP's networks.

      To send out only 1000 letters a week is a mockery and a complete waste of everyone's time. Just what difference will that make? As previously said, the risk of getting caught is small, the fact that only 6000 letters a week between all the ISP's, proves that the risk is infact very, very small.
