They aren't "giving" the content out to any specific person, or group. They are simply leaving it "on the side of the street" and seeing what happens. It rides that line between illegal and legal. From what I was made to understand the major reason it is allowed is because of the law/idea that no matter what/who/how, illegal is illegal. Basically there is no legal way to possess something illegal.
you and your imaginary property are so cute
my post is easier to explain to a stupid judge than yours. yours works only by bribery thus all copyright is illegal as its a result of bribing public officials
also the entire ip adress colection is bogus beyond belief. basically they are too lazy to do it correctly so techniques they employ for ip adresses collection are not usable as has been proven multiple times in court and as other people here have confirmed, who apparently are getting strikes for content they never downloaded
in eu there was this single market initiative for entire eu countries. suddenly content industry cried out since they would lose 30-40% of money that exists because of multiple markets in europe, so whores of babylon / eu parliament have taken video and audio out of the regulation. i assume that once french activision and ubisoft start crying as well, this regulation would not cover 99% of what goes under digital market content.
funny thing up until this year we payed a tax on electronics to "make whole" content producers and their association. well electronics sellers sued and won, so this is no longer possible and content sharing is now illegal. if only the countries themselves were not corrupt as F, and passed laws that basically make people pay these fees to associations, not because of content that is stolen, but because of their own content.
yes, apparently in past we payed fees to content associations for content that was stolen in general, now we are paying for content we ourself produce. basically they made everyone a content creator, even if he wants to burn photos of his cat on a cd, thus he has to pay cents on the cds price to our local version of riaa and mpaa. you cant make this stuff upEdited by revro - 5/21/15 at 10:38pm
