Re: Astraweb automates DMCA removals

said by Anon11192012 :

This idea that keeping it secret is somehow going to stop files from being removed is stupid. If some people know, it's a good chance that the groups who DMCA it know it too. At least sharing this info will help some people get the files before they are removed.

No one said it would keep files from being removed. You have a chance of that with any provider. However the logic follows that if a mass exodus of subscribers are going to provider A because they have vocalized the fact that provider A doesn't do take downs or not as quickly, who do you think they would focus on now? Also NZBs posted to Usenet and not announced to these manual indexing sites usually go unnoticed. It doesn't hurt to keep your mouth shut is what I am saying.

@jarablue

When torrents and usenet get completely filtered, I guess it's back to IRC then? I don't think they can do anything about IRC...or can they?

From what I have seen, Mr. Joe M., has said he is eventually going after IRC on his Twitter account.

He seems to target his business on the things that few downloaders use and even fewer people in Hollywood have even heard of, in order that his false claims can't easily be exposed.

He can't claim to be stopping bittorrent without getting laughed at, because everyone already knows about the Pirate Bay. His customers can simply go there and see for themselves that he can't do squat about removing their media from TPB, no matter how much they pay him.
