The various Big Media baddies in the U.S.A. have managed to shut down popular bittorrent search engine Isohunt by pressuring its Internet service provider. Now Isohunt must hastily relocate their servers to the real land of the free, or at least until that new bill gets passed, anyway.
torrents are just the hurricane katrina of the internet.
Cripes, I *WISH* torrents had that sort of speed. :-\
BTW, I fully admit to being a looter. I know the law. I just don’t give a shit. In a world where our government is selling us out to another country, where illegal aliens are given more rights than citizens, where some soccer dude can get handed a quarter of a -*BILLION*- dollars for playing a game, why should I be a nice little nobody who follows all the rules? Fuck all that. It’s every man for himself from this point on.
Some producers of media are adamantly opposed to the upcoming future of sharing, but there is very little they can do about it now. It will happen, whether they like it or not. Napster and Lokitorrent were early casualties, Isohunt might be the latest, but the sharing won’t stop.
The real question is, will this change happen the easy way or the hard way?
