well if anyone here is a torrent freak like i have become a big verdict came yesterday as the pirate bay has been found guilty of supporting the download of copyrighted material. all 4 members received 1 year in prison and $905,000(USD) in fines. they are going to appeal obviously. what a crock of crap and this could change a lot of stuff with ISP's and torrent sites all over the world! this verdict is flat out :bsflag:
i know i was shocked as well. the verdict was due to all the political BS the judge was dealing with i think. oh well hopefully the appeals go well or they will be in prison for a year. they did say they will never pay the entertainment industry the 900,000 they all owe.
i could debate this for hours but i dont care too right now...i think they shouldnt have gotten that harsh of a punishment if any...but oh well to each his own.
why u say that. there hosting illegal software/music/movies and so on on there site. im not going to try and say i dont use torrents. every single piece of software on this computer is ripped. only payed for the hardware. but if i go out and steal from an old lady, im going to get in trouble. same thing with pirate bay
