  • first of all these sites are not illegal, if they were found to be they could be shut down. users on the sites provide the infringing material. to block these sites completely is to block use of the software bittorrent indiscriminately, and contrevenes the new human right of free access to the internet. I would urge carter ruck and other haphazard cronies to step carefully.

  • Anon801pm. Banking is not illegal but if a bank turns a blind eye to money laundering, it rightly gets hit with 9-figure penalties. The operators of these file sharing sites know full well that 99% of the activity on these sites breaches someone's copyright, yet they choose not to try to police it; most of them actively encourage it. To pretend that these sites have any redeeming value or somehow support the "human right" to internet access is ridiculous.

  • Hahaha Dangermouse you really need a lesson in how the world works. How did the banks get so rich? Banks have knowingly laundered cash through the ages, they know which clients are drug barons, porn magnates etc - the money laundering regs are just a new mechanism to stop the new guys getting in on the act.

    The old skool made their money and now want to control who gets wealthy - and damn if some far east pirates cut into their profits.

    Pirates 4ever - fight the power and fight shit music and shit films
