I predict a massive increase in people torrenting Hurt Locker.
People still use torrents for illegal downloads? I thought Rapidshare and such were the big thing these days. It's safer because you aren't sharing it, unless you were the one who hosted it originally. I believe you can only be prosecuted for sharing and not just for downloading. Unless the law has changed?
This is why I use wbb and RS
From what I've heard, the Act reverses the rules of natural justice by presuming guilt- if you're accused, you have to prove you didn't do it.
Also, I've heard good things about something called PeerGuardian. Masks your IP or somesuch.
peer guardian 2 is about 5 years old and isnt updated, i wouldnt recommend it. ive got an auto-updating IP blacklist for utorrent but i cant remember where i got it
