said by SilverSurfer1:dont forget that all one would have to do is shop at a canadian website. said by ztmike:
If the entertainment industry wants to kill off illegal filesharing they SHOULD be going after the industry that makes blank dvd's and cd's, OR the ripping hardware.
So you're against DPI but you favor "going after" blank media? LMAO. Do you even know what you're talking about.

said by N3OGH:I also wouldn't trust my local Telco to be honest (or objective) about my consumption. Hopefully just like your gas station analogy there will be some independent auditing to ensure the meeting is uniform/valid.
If an ISP is imposing a cap, they should provide a way to monitor it.
You wouldn't pull up to a gas station, fill your car and then ask the price, would you?

Re: BDE is still around?
said by Ian:IMO most Kiddie Porn that is transferred by BT is almost definitely done with private Torrent Sites not public ones (assuming that the same type of system that was used FTP to transfer porn is used with BT Transfers). This means that there are BT Sites (and Servers) that are only known to those who want/distribute kiddie porn and you get your .torrent files from there (after logging in) and thus the policing by the known Torrent Sites of what the content of the .torrent files that they list does no good.
As the article points out, most Torrent sites apparently do a good job of keeping things like kiddie porn off of their sites.
Re: BDE is still around?
said by Vadork:A question and some comments.
The pirate bay carries a number of Child Porn website rips. All of which are based in Europe and Russia. Dress girls up in erotic clothing, swimsuits etc... Then they show off the private parts through the clothing. Here in Illinois, our supreme court ruled It's child porn by showing the genitalia of a minor through clothing intentionally.
Are the models actually underage or 18+ and DRESSING in Children's Clothing? If they are 18+ then it is (possibly) porn (depending on your definition of Porn) but not CHILD Porn.
Second, your Supreme Court seems to be defining Porn as Pictures showing Nudity and not just Sexual Activities. Thus a "baby on a rug picture" is Child Porn since the baby is not clothed even when s/he is on her/his stomach instead of back (where the genitalia is exposed not hidden).
Re: BDE is still around?
said by Vadork:This is, IMO, a case of the Judge trying to do a Long Arm application of his local standards. Sites that are located out of his jurisdiction are a gray area if the content is legal in location of the site (and especially if it is a non-US site). For example, in certain areas of the Middle East it is supposedly illegal to have pictures of the a woman whose face is not covered (no matter what clothing she is wearing/not-wearing).
When I say Underage I mean UNDERAGE! Were talking 12 year old girls. Even younger than 10 on some sites. I'll try and hunt down the ruling to be more specific as to the ruling. But these sites don't even use models 16 or up.

EPIC FAIL Subject pretty much says it all.
Such foolishness to trust a software/hardware solution being touted by a former (?) spyware company like Brilliant Digital.
Or in the words of Nelson Muntz, HA HA!

said by m3rl1n :I can say the same about all the lawmakers as well, they are antiquated dinosaurs trying to preach to everyone else about their dumbass ideas.
The entertainment industry will never prevent piracy or completely stop it. They need to realize that there are a large number of people out there that are far more technologically advanced than they are.
Hell, if they start doing DPI, then pirates will move to using SSL encryption and maybe kerberos.

said by m3rl1n :Most popular bittorrent clients have supported encryption. The stronger encryption mode is based on RC4 encryption. SSL is not encryption in and of itself, rather it's the protocol implementation of any one of many different encryption algorithms to create a secure communications layer. So in essence, Bittorrent already has ssl or the equivalent and has had such for some time.
then pirates will move to using SSL encryption
and maybe kerberos.Huh? Playing security terminology bingo again? Kerberos has nothing to do with securing communications of large amounts of information. It's a authentication protocol for proving your identity across an insecure channel.

These Guys Would Be the Single, Largest Users of Child Por I mean, in order to generate their "fingerprints", they'd have to have source files to fingerprint (and every variation, thereof). So as not to run afoul of law enforcement, themselves, they'd only be allowed to get the material from law-enforcement agencies. Given that the only real way that law-enforcement agencies would be able to get new material - aside from making it themselves for entrapment purposes - is to have built a case against a person and grabbed their collection as part of the arrest process. Given how long the latter process would take, it seems like it would be fairly meaningless as far as stopping the spread of that stuff (and the "making", while not unheard of, is wrong on its own). So, one must ask, even if the technology was able to block *all* file-trading technologies, what is the *real* point of it.
