My money leaves the ISP who polices downloads and goes directly to the ISP who doesn't. Then there will be several ways to hide your downloading activity from the ISP who thinks they're the police. The power of free stuff will always ultimately prevail.

This was published back in March... For all we know, they could've backed off at this point.

This is less about piracy and more about privacy. I laugh at their feeble attempts to control us.

There are definitive lines for everything, if a guy writes and performs a song and he doesnt make a gajillion dollars of it, well good, he will make some, diversify, and if his craft is his love he can get off his ass and perform, tour, sell tickets and actually work for it. If you put a picture on display Im not paying cause I seen it. Literature on the other hand is a different story, software yeah.

@BoredFrank -
Care to share a link to your website that showcases your 'copyrighted works' so we can decide if any sane person would steal them?

sjaakwortel: Bullpoo.

My copyrighted works are being 'shared' every freaking day by low-life pirates, and that's money out of my pocket. Don't tell me it isn't, either -- you're not the one being robbed.

@Rick_S: Even better, the TAILS project uses Tor routing and other features so that you can just plug your USB into a comp and surf the web completely anonymously, leaving no data or digital trace on the computer.

Downloading isn't stealing, its like someone stealing your bike, but when you wake up your bike is still there, and now you both have a bike.

The problem is the market value of the bike, but its not taking property

I have no sympathy for thieves. Pay for stuff or do without. Stealing isn't cool -- there's no difference between a shoplifter and a 'file sharer.'

"The most effective antipiracy program ever".
Yeah, that will be right up there with the most effective antidrug program, antiterror program or any anti(Your choice) program that has bombed miserably in recent history.
The upshot will be that more of our rights will be legislated away for the 'common good'- meaning corporate profit.

"I think by the 2nd or 3rd someone will have a program to mask traffic from there programs. So just don't do anything on the first day."

Already exists. It's called "The Tor Project."

I just heard the AT&T CFO cheer loudly, he is about to gain customers from comcast, verizon, and time warner.
