Trading popular files on BitTorrent? You'll be spotted within 3 hours
arstechnica.com


Users who participate in BitTorrent swarms for popular files are likely to have their IP addresses logged by monitoring companies within three hours. That's the conclusion of a paper being presented this week at the SecureComm conference in Italy by Tom Chothia and colleagues at the University of Birmingham.

To arrive at this conclusion, the researchers observed "1,033 swarms across 421 trackers for 36 days over 2 years." They reported that "monitoring is prevalent for popular content (i.e., the most popular torrents on The Pirate Bay) but absent for less popular content."

i have previously warned here on ATS that torrent trackers and MPAA/RIAA are using automated systems to "ensnare" users of torrents.
it would seam that rather than offer content on the web in a "worldwide" release the content providers would rather foster the piracy of their products by leaving release dates stretched over the course of weeks or months.

what happens is automated and seading torrents is tracked and traced and a warning is sent to ISPs to gather further evidence of copy-write infringement.

this then allows the "rights" holder to automatically generate a file capable of showing your infringement in a court of law.

IMHO this is a tactic to criminalise common behaviour of internet users and could lead to many millions of people being trolled for "pay now" or "see you in court" shake downs by rights holders.

in my opinion the rights holders have intentionally set a trap to make money from over inflated settlements, why else would they not realise a worldwide release, that would remove the need for alot of piracy in the first place.

IMHO the reason the rights holders never developed a reasonable approach to combating piracy is profit.

one DVD of a movie $20.00
one out of court settlement for 1 movie $2000.00
and when you go trolling for profits you dont even need to manufacture the DVD or spend on the advertising and sales staff, just lawyers at the other end.

if you look at the inflated "damages" awarded recently in a case where the rights holders "PAYED" FOR THE INVESTIGATION PROSECUTION and court costs,
got insane amounts of compensation.

$50,000 dollars per song?

warning you will be recorded and presumed guilty untill proven innocent.

so much for justice huh?

Solution: Make sure your files download in less than an hour, ...or move to a country where downloading is legal.  Cheesy
