      I just hope that they don't help to line the pockets of companies like ACS:Law.

      I think this is why certain ISPs came out against the DEA, nothing to do with looking after the interests of their users as they maintained.

      Maybe they don't speak Brizzle.

      I never even thought of it as a swear word.

      They are looking for file-sharers, to "track down and contact people suspected of sharing copyrighted material online."

      If you download copyright material using a 'torrent' then this means YOU.
      Your torrent program is sharing the copyrighted material from your computer to other people.

      IANAL, however, downloading content from sites like megaupload or rapidshare would not be considered as 'file-sharing'.

      Or usenet, but do you think our politicians know the difference when it comes to technology?

      As far as I see it a rights holder spots someone sharing their product they contact the ISP who investigates/sends out warning letters and notifies the rights holder of the details.

      Maybe use a seedbox?


      All this will do is make people use other services and go hidden in some way.
