The Pirate Bay

I am not sure if the person who did the presentation on copyrights and downloading the other week mentioned this. To tell the truth, they could have talked about puff the magic dragon and I would not remember at this point. My brain is too fried - curse you finals week!

Anyhoo, a prosecutor in Sweden has vowed to file charges against The Pirate Bay on the grounds of breaches of copyright law. Apparently this group of people are BitTorrent's foremost trackers and were raided about a year ago, when police confiscated servers and other computer equipment.

The answer to piracy...

Everywhere I hear people complaining about piracy of this and copyright protection that. I am all for patents and copyrights, but if some 15yr old kid in his living room can figure out how to watch a movie for free instead of forking over $10 to see it theaters, all the power to him. For example, I freggin love the network. And because it is readily available to me and the kids that run it outsmarted everyone trying to stop them, I figure I should use their service. Well, all that I am really trying to say is that the big music / video / tv companies should stop bitching and figure out how to beat these 15yr old kids. Bittorent may have just stumbled upon the answer.
