[BBC] BT ordered to block pirate links - Page 5

I don't think it's ever actually cut off.
Sky actually had a poor reputation when they started out, but that seems to have improved significantly. That said, the speed I get now is something I'm not willing to give up. I don't get capped much by VM (6GB upload limit in the evening isn't something I've ever hit. No download limit, I did 120GB download in a single day with no problem).

Well you can be 100% sure that other ISP and sites will follow very fast , this ruling has opened a way for MAFIAA to block out any site they wish.

This is not going to help VM is next one on the list.

I never used Newzbin and I am with VM but i still see this news as very worrying , this is just a beginning.
Soon tons of similar lawsuits will follow and dozens of websites will be blocked , no matter if your ISP is BT , VM , SKY , Talk Talk or other.
I really hope someone will find a way around that , this approach to the problem is wrong.
MAFIAA is desperately clinging to their obsolete business model.
If only they would spend the same amount of money money on improving their sales model as they spend on funding those ridiculous lawsuits they would come out with better result.


Oh and one last thing :

After reading this naive comment :

""Finally, it seems we have a way to deal with rogue sites which will benefit the film industry including UK independent distributors and, more broadly, the entire creative sector""
Lord Puttnam President, Film Distributers Association


Only thing to say would be :
Yeah dream on grandpa
Nobody said it's BT's fault. They may have been fighting at it, but their hand has been forced. Doesn't mean customers aren't going to hate them for it.
Many of the other ISPs you mentioned are automatically going to be affected by the BT implementation, simply because they're on BT's backbone. Since BT owns a bulk of the communications infrastructure in the UK, set up costs are significantly lower for other ISPs to just rent the lines from BT.
Once BT includes Newzbin in the CleanFeed filter, every ISP on their lines will be affected.

As for the quote by Lord Puttnam, it appears that he and most of the MAFIAA are under the illusion that they've actually won something.
They really haven't. They're forgetting what happened to NewzBin 1. May 2010, NewzBin 1 shut down. 2 weeks later, NewzBin2 opened up and picked up where NewzBin 1 left off. This will do nothing to stop them.

Be sure to read RobotDevil666's reply to you, please.

In example I'm running Virgin 50Mb and i max out at roughly 5.5 MB on Steam or Torrents , sometimes it goes a little higher.
And taking as 50Mb = 6.25 MB i think it's fair enough.
+1
Generally I get the same, but when you account for network overhead, you find that you are pushing closer to the 6.25MB/s bar. On the odd occasion, I've seen my network hit 6.25MB/s for a split second, and that's net speed, so my gross speed including overheads would have been over 50Mb/s.

We're all missing the big picture here: Newzbin hasn't been good for years.

Hollow victory!

This is nothing new, and the more they "crack down" like this, the more that people will just resort to the old fashioned ways, like burning DVDs and doing it sneakernet style...
