The War Is On: "Anonymous" Hackers Shut Down MPAA, Department of Justice, RIAA & Universal Music Websites | PerezHilton.com

Quote:
This one is for $$$$$$$$$$!

The online group protesting SOPA known as "Anonymous" has begun their retaliation against those who seek to close off the Internet by taking down major websites.

Operatives for "Anonymous" started targeting sites of contributing corporations after $$$$$$$$$$ was officially shut down and four people linked to the popular file sharing website were arrested. Their first target were the Department of Justice and Universal Music Group, the largest record company in the United States. Then came the downfall of RIAA and MPAA.

And this won't be the end! In fact, one member of the movement promises “more is coming” if more isn't done to stop the attack on the web.

This is about to get ugly! No doubt, these major corporations are NOT going to stand for this kind of fight. Wonder what site will be the next casualty.

A buddy of mine whos a hell of a nerd was talking to me about this just now. he said theres a reason why the feds went after MU and not someone like rapidshare. both are very similar, but MU actually promotes the uploading of popular copywright material.

Quote:
$$$$$$$$$$ used a rewards program that provided financial incentives for uploading popular content that drove traffic to the site, the indictment said. "The conspirators allegedly paid users whom they specifically knew uploaded infringing content and publicized their links to users throughout the world" according to the DOJ.
"$$$$$$$$$$ did not include a search function; the owners used third-party linking sites to publicize content. In violation of the law, $$$$$$$$$$ failed to delete the accounts of those that contained infringing material."
"For example, when notified by a rights holder that a file contained infringing content, the indictment alleges that the conspirators would disable only a single link to the file, deliberately and deceptively leaving the infringing content in place to make it seamlessly available to millions of users to access through any one of the many duplicate links available for that file," the DOJ said.

>Continually admit that you don't buy movies or vidoes, you only watch them online....
If this mindset continues, SOPA will eventually get passed. We all need to give our head a shake and stop pirating. The more we do this, the more the industry will crumble and ask for help. Look at all the industries that have already died because of this. Video rental is dead, theaters are uping ticket prices because of low attendances... Everyone is sitting in their bedroom downloading copious amounts of movies and television series without realizing the impact it has on the industry. If you haven't noticed, there has been a steep decline in original and interesting films in the last decade, and it's mostly to blame because hollywood is losing business because of piracy and they're not the gambling types they were back in the day. They put all their money into movies they know will make money while ignoring original content because there is never a big enough audience to see it. This is why super hero movies and sequels are so big. The fans are willing to see the movie in theaters even if the movie is complete trash compared to the casual movie watcher who doesn't see much in the trailer of a film, therefore he'd rather see it online.

Although I don't agree with SOPA entirely, I agree that online piracy should stop at once. I think they should have a legal acceptance form everytime you upload a film onto a sharing website. If you say you own the rights and you don't, then bam... Massive fine and a stamp on your record.

Why the feds smashed $$$$$$$$$$
By Nate Anderson | Published 39 minutes ago
Why the feds smashed $$$$$$$$$$

The US government dropped a nuclear bomb on "cyberlocker" site $$$$$$$$$$ today, seizing its domain names, grabbing $50 million in assets, and getting New Zealand police to arrest four of the site's key employees, including enigmatic founder Kim Dotcom. In a 72-page indictment unsealed in a Virginia federal court, prosecutors charged that the site earned more than $175 million since its founding in 2005, most of it based on copyright infringement.

As for the site's employees, they were paid lavishly and they spent lavishly. Even the graphic designer, 35-year-old Slovakian resident Julius Bencko, made more than $1 million in 2010 alone.

The indictment goes after six individuals, who between them owned 14 Mercedes-Benz automobiles with license plates such as "POLICE," "MAFIA," "V," "STONED," "CEO," "HACKER," GOOD," "EVIL," and—perhaps presciently—"GUILTY." The group also had a 2010 Maserati, a 2008 Rolls-Royce, and a 1989 Lamborghini. They had not one but three Samsung 83" TVs, and two Sharp 108" TVs. Someone owned a "Predator statue." Motor bikes, jet skis, artwork, and even 60 Dell servers could all be forfeit to the government if it can prove its case against the members of the "Mega Conspiracy."

The case is a major one, involving international cooperation between the US, Hong Kong, the Netherlands, the UK, Germany, Canada, and the Philippines. In addition to the arrests, 20 search warrants were executed today in multiple countries.
No safe harbor for you

Going after $$$$$$$$$$, one of the most popular sites in the world, might seem a strange choice. (As an example of its scale, $$$$$$$$$$ controlled 525 servers in Virginia alone and had another 630 in the Netherlands—and many more around the world.) For years, the site has claimed to take down unauthorized content when notified by rightsholders. It has registered a DMCA agent with the US government. It has created an “abuse tool” and given rightsholders access. It has negotiated with companies like Universal Music Group about licensing content. And CEO Kim Dotcom sent this curious e-mail to PayPal in late 2011:

Our legal team in the US is currently preparing to sue some of our competitors and expose their criminal activity. We like to give you a heads up and advice [sic] you not to work with sites that are known to pay up loaders for pirated content. They are damaging the image and the existence of the file hosting industry (see what's happening with the Protect IP Act). Look at Fileserve.com, Videobb.com, Filesonic.com, Wupload.com, Uploadstation.com. These sites pay everyone (no matter if the files are pirated or not) and have NO repeat infringer policy. And they are using PayPal to pay infringers.

But the government asserts that $$$$$$$$$$ merely wanted the veneer of legitimacy, while its employees knew full well that the site's main use was to distribute infringing content. Indeed, the government points to numerous internal e-mails and chat logs from employees showing that they were aware of copyrighted material on the site and even shared it with each other. Because of this, the government says that the site does not qualify for a “safe harbor” of the kind that protected YouTube from Viacom's $1 billion lawsuit.

For instance, the “abuse tool” allegedly does not remove the actual file being complained about by a rightsholder. Instead, it only removes a specific Web address linked to that file—but there might be hundreds of such addresses for popular content.

In addition, the government contends that everything about the site has been doctored to make it look more legitimate than it is. The “Top 100” download list does not “actually portray the most popular downloads,” say prosecutors, and they claim that $$$$$$$$$$ purposely offers no site-wide search engine as a way of concealing what people are storing and sharing through the site.

$$$$$$$$$$ employees apparently knew how the site was being used. When making payments through its “uploader rewards” program, employees sometimes looked through the material in those accounts first. "10+ Full popular DVD rips (split files), a few small porn movies, some software with keygenerators (warez)," said one of these notes. (The DMCA does not provide a "safe harbor" to sites who have actual knowledge of infringing material and do nothing about it.)

In a 2008 chat, one employee noted that "we have a funny business... modern days [sic] pirates ," to which the reply was, "we're not pirates, we're just providing shipping servies [sic] to pirates ."

Employees send each other e-mails saying things like, “can u pls get me some links to the series called ‘Seinfeld’ from MU [$$$$$$$$$$]," since some employees did have access to a private internal search engine.

Employees even allegedly uploaded content themselves, such as a BBC Earth episode uploaded in 2008.

Other messages appear to indicate that employees knew how important copyrighted content was to their business. Content owners had a specific number of takedown requests they could make each day; in 2009, for instance, Time Warner was allowed to use the abuse tool to remove 2,500 links per day. When the company requested an increase, one employee suggested that "we can afford to be cooperative at current growth levels"— implying that if growth had not been so robust, takedowns should be limited. Kim Dotcom approved an increase to 5,000 takedowns a day.

Employees also had access to analytics. One report showed that a specific linking site had “produce[d] 164,214 visits to $$$$$$$$$$ for a download of the copyrighted CD/DVD burning software package Nero Suite 10. The software package had the suggested retail price of $99.” The government's conclusion: $$$$$$$$$$ knew what was happening and did little to stop it.
The need for care

Yet the indictment seems odd in some ways. When Viacom made many of the same charges against YouTube, it didn't go to the government and try to get Eric Schmidt or Chad Hurley arrested.

It's also full of strange non-sequiturs, such as the charge that "on or about November 10, 2011, a member of the Mega Conspiracy made a transfer of $185,000 to further an advertising campaign for $$$$$$$$$$.com involved a musical recording and a video." So?

The money probably paid for a video that infuriated the RIAA by including major artists who support $$$$$$$$$$. $$$$$$$$$$ later filed claims in US courts, trying to save the video, which it says was entirely legal, from takedown requests. (The RIAA has long said the site operators "thumb their noses at international laws, all while pocketing significant advertising revenues from trafficking in free, unlicensed copyrighted materials.")

Given that the site was already using US courts to file actions; given that the government had $$$$$$$$$$ e-mails talking about using US lawyers to file cases against other "pirate" sites; given that the site did at least take down content and built an abuse tool; and given that big-name artists support the site, the severity of the government's reaction is surprising.

There's no doubt that the indictment makes $$$$$$$$$$ look bad, though, and we're quite curious to see what comes of the case—especially once the site has a chance to respond.

Law professor James Grimmelman of NYU tells Ars, "If proven at trial, there's easily enough in the indictment to prove criminal copyright infringement many times over. But much of what the indictment details are legitimate business strategies many websites use to increase their traffic and revenues: offering premium subscriptions, running ads, rewarding active users.

"I hope that if this case goes to trial and results in convictions, that the court will be careful in sorting out just what $$$$$$$$$$ did that crossed the line of criminality."

The MPAA doesn't have any doubts, though. "By all estimates, $$$$$$$$$$.com is the largest and most active criminally operated website targeting creative content in the world," it said in a statement. "This criminal case, more than two years in development, shows that law enforcement can take strong action to protect American intellectual property stolen through sites housed in the United States."

It's weird. Today, I would never steal anything from a store. Not even a candy bar. But, when it comes to content online I don't give a fcuk. I find that very interesting. And I know a lot of people are the same way.

But, I guess like any business you need to realize that you're going to have some loss. ie. a lot of stores have a budget of how much "loss" they will have in a year due to damage or theft, etc...
There are always going to be people buying stuff legally online though.

And the argument that only the older generation buy stuff online is false..
I mean look at the iTunes store. A lot of my friends who are 18-30 can easily jail break their iPhone to get free apps. But, a majority of them do not. And they just pay for their apps.

On occasion I do buy a movie on demand. I mean the quality is better and I don't have to look around, find a good stream or good download. So I guess just budget for a loss, especially with online content
