Private Torrent Tracker >> Seedbox >via FTP> My PC

I think I'm pretty safe, plus, my wifi will inconvieniently be set to unsecured should they come looking for me. "OH NOES! Those darn hax0rs!"

Not that I don't anything illegally, I'm part of private trackers sharing copyright free stuff...

Any downloads are still your responsibility, that is no protection from conviction.

Afraid you'll have to google it yourself, can't say here, they'll come for me (the mods)

If you do go into the route of private trackers and/or seedboxes, make sure you have read lots and lots of advice first. Don't buy private tracker invites EVER.

Meh, I'll get it from PtP when I get my own laptop and no one will trace me :ninja:

Bit random, but love the song in your sig, remind me to rep you tomorrow.

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?

Just to make one thing clear.

You cant be traced if you are part of a private tracker?

Or would they even bother suing for people outside the US?

Show me any piece of (in force) UK legislation that says this.

The Digital Economy Act 2010, I believe adds provisions to make this the case, but it's not yet in force, but there have been numerous occasions where completely innocent people have been served papers from shyster "legal" firms demanding money because they've supposedly downloaded intellectual property illegally, when in fact, their level of competence with a computer extends no further than turning it on and opening up their emails. Following investigation, these cases were dropped as there was no evidence of the infringement on their computer and that they had an unsecured wireless network.

In my opinion, it would be very difficult to bring about a case under existing legislation, where an internet subscriber had an unsecured, or a WEP secured wireless network, as there's no conclusive way to prove that they did it (unless of course it's on their computer).

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.

Or they posted on a public Internet forum about their intentions to download it and claim ignorance. I'd say that would count as pretty good evidence.

Just to clarify guys, I'm happy to keep this open for discussion about the news topic and the implications of filesharing, but please don't discuss methods as to how to fileshare and get away with it.

Well quite :p:
