[Wired] Torrentspy Dinged $111 Million in MPAA Lawsuit - Page 9  

post #81 of 86
stargate125645 - you need to stop trolling and you need to start making intelligent arguments instead of putting! exclamation! points! after! every! sentence! It does not make you more argumentative.

Have you ever recorded a TV show? Maybe borrowed the recording to a friend? Have you ever downloaded a shareware application that you kept on using past it's expiration period? Did you purchase every single piece of software that you own, without exceptions what-so-ever? Did you ever share a DVD you bought with a friend? Maybe borrowed one that you rented to someone? Did you maybe move your CDs to MP3 format and now play them on your phone, PDA, or another portable player? Did you maybe invite a bunch of friends over to watch a movie? Did you borrow your CDs to your friends to "have a listen"?

I guess you violated some copyright and right-of-usage clauses now, eh

Seriously... All you pirates need to stop being cheap asses and either buy the product or don't use it. There really is nothing more that needs to be said about it! The lot of you come on each thread with the same piss poor arguments, and you only feel victorious when those of us who do the right thing in this instance get fed up with your ignorant attitudes and lack of moral and social responsibility. And you want to whine about bully issues? Well look it the frickin' mirror because you are causing the issues, you geniuses! And guess what? Your pirating is also an arrogant portrayal of superiority because your actions affect those of us who do do things the right way, forcing us to deal with the consequences: higher prices, more assinine DRM schemes, and lack-luster video game releases for the PC (ports don't count). So your actions are forcing me into things; forcing me to deal with consequences of actions with which I had nothing to do. Hmmm...sounds an awful lot like bullying to me! So not only are the lot of you morally-bankrupt pirates ignorant and arrogant, but you're also hypocrites! Suck on that one while you come up with your next horrible, baseless, ignorant, arrogant, and hypocritical argument.
No. War on piracy makes as much sense as a war on terrorism. I've said countless times if I say somethign incorrect, by all means EDUCATE ME. However if torrentspy is not hosting any actual torrents, not running a tracker, and merely links u to people like iso hunt and mino nova, then torrent spy is just a google for torrents.

Torrentspy is NOT hosting torrent files for download!


This makes about as much sense as the british record label that tried to sue MODEM makers in the napster days!

Torrent spy is NOT a website you could have gone to to download a torrent file. Torrent spy was a website that would DIRECT you to a torrent site... Google does the SAME THING. Torrent spy was NOT a host of torrents, and CERTAINLY not a tracker!!!

The the RIAA etc fault in the first place. I will never understand their logic..its stupid.

Heres a quote (that I made up) of the news/legal situation

Quote:
7o'clock news with Dave

The RIAA is trying to stop illegal downloaders from downloading copyrighted material for free. This is against the law etc etc....

The pirates use a program called bittorrent. They can then download the files they want from sites such as the piratebay and get their content for free

What does everyone do?!? OOOOOOO free stuff from the net. lets download it. Wow this is so easy....

Its their own sodding fault. If they had never publicised what they were doing or even tried to combat it with mass law suits etc they would have never ended up in the mess.

IF TorrentSpy isn't guilty, I'm sure there will be an appeal (there probably will be anyway). But in the end, I have faith in our legal system.
must be why IJ is not in jail.

Not it isn't the same.

If I create a website that contains information about how to build a small bomb out of household materials, and some terrorist uses that information to build their own bomb and detonates in some building, should I get penalized?

Your answer should be no, although perhaps you have a moral responsibility not to put up the website in fear of people actually using the information. However, if your site did not exist, a terrorist would probably find some other method to build a bomb, and the same deadly results would occur.

And just a note: If you know corporations are greedy ********, do you still want to buy from them? Or do you want to protest? Should the US government be supporting companies who are artificially raising prices for an extraordinarily high amount of profit? Remember, RAM companies got in trouble for this...
