    Just more butthurt record labels and such trying to piss on everyone. There's a number of cases floating around where they raped average joe for illegally downloading music... $1000 a song or some obnoxious shit. Now they're trying to take a bite of Google... I hope they get their ass royally kicked.

    Well it's about time they tried to anyway. The only difference between Google and Piratebay is that Piratebay only searches torrents, and google searches the whole web. It's crazy to think that they should only pursue one and not the other.

    Though they will fail. Google will just bury them in paperwork until they run out of money.

    I did notice afew weeks back that the word torrent was dropped from auto fill until its almost typed in, used to be right up front:laugh:. This wont do jack but push torrent further under ground with more invite only and streaming sites[like orb]. Cats out of the bag and had a whole litter, no going back without shutting down the internet or paying for data usage like the ISPs and MPAA want.

    lol indead, close down google ey, now that would be a site to see, all i'll say is good luck
    tbh i think all that'll happen is google might get a fine

    i've never been a torenter (to many axxhxxe lawyers in my country and busy body tracking websites for my liking) but i can see why it's happening average pc games seem to be available sometimes weeks after they are released, plus the obvious movies :rolleyes:

    but we all know who's responsible for a part of it don't we china wink.gif

    next it'll be the pron industry going after the free hosting websites, then what ? it'll be tears.gif before bedtime and alot of people just not bothering

    not that i'm into pron or anything blush.gif whistles .gif

    Ha! Proof it. :laugh:

    It really funny to see these guys threatening Google. Google will assrape them so hard when they get annoying. Google can throw almost unlimited resources to the case if needed. Nobody takes on Google. :shadedshu

    jesus read the story before jumping with, YOU CANT TAKE DOWN GOOGLE shite,

    google operates a free wifi service and people were using it to download torrents so google got warned about this and they would be liable as they operate the service.

    THATS ALL! just read it, its a simple couple of letters that is just a standard procedure.......nothing more, its just the media making a story out of nothing, but i guess you already know that as your have read the above post correctly.

    at the worst Google may be forced to add a BitTorrent-related filter to its hotspot service, thats all!


    NO ONE IS TRYING TO TAKE DOWN GOOGLE! jesus sometimes people remind me that we evolved from apes.

    Try again with less rage and caps if you want people to take you seriously.

    Seriously, I doubt Google is gonna change anything seeing this is already going on for months. Like I said, if they take it to court the media company is gonna lose.

    more like weeks BEFORE release, actually.


    games are often out and cracked on day 1, and movies are often online weeks and months before they hit cinemas here in Au.

    Who writes this crap? They make it sound like there is one big plug somewhere on the internet with Google's name on it. :shadedshu

    Nope. They're targetting Google employees using Google's wifi service. You obviously didn't read enough.

    The first few paragraphs pertain to what you say, which was months ago. This new action is more recent.

    read up how the dmca process works

    we do this all the time when someone thinks they can copy our reviews word for word + images without permission. send a dmca complaint to the provider of the website. they have to follow up with their client. if the infringing material is not removed most providers will simply block access to their client's site within typically 1-3 days until the issue is resolved.

    what the mpaa is planning on doing is sending a dmca complaint to the upstream provider of the infringing ip, requesting that the material on the evil google network gets blocked

    yeah but since the data on the google network is torrents, its all gone by the time google is aware it was ever there.

    its not like google is HOSTING any of this material, its just passing through their network.

    I have seen this article on so many tech sites and it still makes me laugh but only as to how the "story" is presented as the MPAA taking on Google when it's all just about letters that are sent out with what seams like no review or checks to I.P's .

    wtf? so there is not a single giant router somewhere in America with Google's name on it that can just be unplugged and instantly kill all Google services planet wide? :roll::p

    DMCA takedown notices are weird though considering there's the latest torrentfreak article about "Hollywood's Enemy #1" only having one such notice since Dec. 2010 (and from a software company, not a member of the Big 12).

    nah he has no massive switch. he just gets his minions to call every ISP and tell them to shut down their servers/routers.
    stevednmc says thanks.

    Excellent if that were the case. I would do a happy dance the day the RIAA and/or MPAA go bankrupt. They only exist to harrass anyone they think they can make a buck on.

    Yes, but google isn't hosting anything copyrighted. The MPAA is trying to shut down google because random people on their network downloaded movies illegally. The MPAA doesn't understand the concept of private networks, and that multiple people can be using the same public IP at the same time. There is no content for the ISP to block or take down.
