>The data seized in the raid will first be examined by the authorities. Paul Pintér, National coordinator for intellectual property crimes, told NyTeknik that there is a lot of information to go through, so it may take some time before the investigation completes.
Are you ready for your download and upload history to show in the data that forensic experts are currently looking at?
Are you ready for that data to be given to studios?
Are you ready for the studios to sue the SHIT out of you because you decided to download or upload copyrighted material at the biggest target for the piracy police?
Are you ready to have to pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars when a court letter comes to your home and make you pay for your crimes?
Are you NEETs ready for your parents to finally kick you out because the proof that you pirated stuff means you have to pay thousands of dollars in fines? Are you ready to flip burgers for the next years of your life just so you can pay the damages in installments?
HAHAHAHAHA YOU'RE FUCKED PIRATEFAGS.
>Are you ready to have to pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars when a court letter comes to your home and make you pay for your crimes?
>throw letter in garbage
wow. much difficult.
>Are you ready for your download and upload history to show in the data that forensic experts are currently looking at?
That data is not in the magnet, tard master.
>Are you ready for the studios to sue the SHIT out of you because you decided to download or upload copyrighted material at the biggest target for the piracy police?
Sure, sue millions of people all at once.
Who the fucks gives a shit? I have downloaded many things over the years, and there were never letters being sent to me.
The only way to feasibly punish the mass of pirates is to have some international agency that forces nations to tax their citizens a "pirate tax" based on amount of illegal torrent traffic.
Even that's hard because there's legit torrent traffic.
That's why they go after uploaders 99.99% of the time.
>implying this means shit
everything is encrypted anyway and a good portion of the site is shared between multiple servers at different locations. Am i the only one who reads their updates?
Anyway heres whats gonna happen
>Comp Forensics will try to decrypt it
>wont be able to
>will pass it off to other sorces
>if anything gets cracked it wont help because TPB never logged ips
They're honestly better off doing it the old way and monitoring large uploaders through clients with the magnet links they've acquired
Private trackers are more insecure than public trackers. If a private tracker gets raided, authorities have every IP address you've ever connected to the site with (and since every private tracker has strict rules against VPNs, that means they have your home IP), every torrent you've ever downloaded, upload/download stats etc etc.
They could break the encryption of the HDDs assuming they
1- used software encryption
2- the servers were not shutdown
And even then they don't log IPs.
>the information once loaded in ram
You're fucking retarded. The information in RAM is infinitesimal compared to all the information on all the HDDs, that'd make this raid rather irrelevant. Sure they could get the IPs of the people currently browsing the site but that's it.
Old forensic method was freezing the ram and transferring it into a specialised machine to recover any keys that were loaded
That was prw 2007. Not gonna mention the new tools/processes they have at extracting this shit. Y'all dumb as fuck
You don't need to break the encryption to get it
Is america the only country that legitimately tries to go after pirates? i am pretty sure that in my shitty country there has never been a case about it, we even have
movie rental shops that rent pirated dvds and they are in business for decades now.
>Old forensic method was freezing the ram and transferring it into a specialised machine to recover any keys that were loaded
Find an example of that method being used during an actual criminal case.
Protip: You can't.
Which does fuck all to help them figure out who actually plugged the magnet link into a torrent client, but whatever. I somewhat doubt they had any logs from back when you had to download the torrent files themselves, even though that still doesn't prove someone actually used the torrent.
Who cares? The servers could be unencrypted and it wouldn't matter, the data on them is useless for finding anyone except maybe anybody who established a connection within a few minutes of the seizure. Even then they could have just as easily gotten that information and a whole load more by having a battery of toasters crawl the site running torrents to harvest IPs.
The whole thing feels like it's either a stunt to put the fear of god into retards or petty revenge from someone high up who got stroppy after their crusade against piracy didn't amount to shitting in a bucket.
The owners who also happen to be ready for these type of situations because they've already had this happen to them before.
You seem to think forensic professionals are the most intelligent people on the planet and can do magic.
If they wanted to sue thousands of people they could have easily monitor the torrents for months and the do it, how is the information that they will get now, assuming they get any, something that
they couldn't get at any given time if they wanted it?
You don't need to shutdown the entire data center to shut down the TPB servers.
Besides, this is all assuming they're going to get any relevant information from a server that collects magnet links and doesn't log IPs
I can't tell if you're intentionally baiting or if you're retarded.
None of that information would be on the server. And even if they stored IP logs on the load balancer, they can only connect you to downloading something if they join millions of random torrent swarms to see if you're on there.
There's literally nothing on there for those that used the service itself. The only thing it might be useful for is trying to take track the owners themselves.
Are you stupid? Or never even looked into VPN providers.
Yes they could theoretically do that, but only if you bought your VPN from hidemyass or something similarly retarded
Who will they know that is a vpn? if its a really obscure country the will most likely live it be, assuming you don't go and get a vpn
i an first world country. Or you could get a vpn from a country that piracy is completely legal, they won't bother searching ips one by one to see
if any of them are vpns, they will at most send some scare letters to a bunch of americans.
>Anyone have any more information on this?
Yes. My country's shitty and the government is too busy reaping the benefits of corruption to care about piracy or even CP.
Any South American country will do.
did you guys still use torrents?
direct download is safer, ive been download shit for decades from rapidshare, keep2share, mega... all these fucking sites. No one is going to get raided from downloading shit from there.
It's pretty expensive but I'm almost certain they don't store logs / don't cooperate with feds
I've uploaded over a thousand Japanese adult video's. Would be a laugh if some Japanese porn studio tried to sue me. Good thing I live in Russia and my government doesn't give a fuck.
Some reading comprehension would help. They probably mean that they will just look at torrents uploaded by users and either find those who uploaded the torrents and then also fuck the owners of TPB too for aiding in piracy.
tl;dr if you downloaded some random album or episode you have nothing to fear.
Uploaders on 1-click-hosters have been raided in the past, namely rapidshare. Most hosters can never provide the speed that a well-seeeded torrent can get you. But yeah, if you want to download rather rare things which would have no seeders, hosters can be better.
Is downloading the actual torrent file illegal? I didnt think so.
Authorities have to catch you while you are downloading/seeding or they can't do anything. Just because I downloaded a torrent file 2 years ago never means I actually downloaded whatever it was linked to. They can't prove anything unless they saw your IP listed as a seeding peer back when I actually was (or wasnt) downloading whatever that torrent file was for.
You'd have to have uploaded a couple hundred new releases for them to even start considering you, and that is without the need for this particular raid, they could've done that by just monitoring the swarm.
/g/ is getting more retarded every minute... I'm not even mad, just disappointed. Here's the list of things you did wrong:
> not knowing how P2P networks work
> not knowing the IPs of the clients were not stored
> using all caps to laugh like a complete moron
Again, if you're serious 1/10 contact psychiatrist for autism. If trolling 4/10 made me reply.
Piratebay doesn't even have information on users that COPIED A FUCKING MAGNET LINK from their website.
It's been a while since they actually hosted torrent files, and those aren't illegal to download.
>to tax their citizens a "pirate tax"
literally have been paying that for like 15-20 years in Canada.
good luck MPAA & RIAA. remember when you begged for that to shore up your shit business model?
lol. smooth move, ex-lax. you played yourself. i go to work. live and let die. welcome to the jung.. i forgot what I was doing.
>tfw I had them delete my account months before this raid
How much do you have to upload to be a major uploader?
I uploaded tons of stuff and had scripts upload it for me when I slept. like thousands of stuff. Not once have I ever had a nasty letter not that I would take it seriously anyway
>>How much do you have to upload to be a major uploader?
Pretty sure that if you're in the hundreds you'd be considered a major uploader, and that's only if you weren't uploading anonymously.
I don't pirate out of paranoid tinfoilerry but I'd be worried that an IP someone used 5 years ago is currently assigned to me or that someone who shared my IP did things and I take the fall.
Personally I'm a member of some underground sharing network and other members chip in with donations so we can buy DVD's and Blu-Rays and I have a friend who is a distributor. He owns a web store and let's me rip the disks he sells. And I do it all out of love, even lose a bit of money on the hosting / sharing of content.
Seeing on how I got no response in my thread, I'll ask here.
What do you guys think of Cyberghost 5 VPN ?
From what I read , it's Romanian made, doesn't keep logs and has many servers also you can use it for free without any cap.
