On 19 th of January in the name of copyright infringement a well known file sharing website have been seized by the authority.
I was shocked to see that the U.S authorities could arrest someone and stop a website out of their countries, without any trial before hand. There was also a “legal” use a file sharing, and some people still cannot access there data. This has upset me. Where is the justice there ? All of that in the name of copyright infringement and piracy?
Anonymous answer have been to attack using DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) all website which have interest of the “Major”. In my opinion this won’t change anything, their website won’t be available for fews days, but that won’t force the major to change behavior towards us (consumers). I have just tried to access the MPAA, and the website work fine now several days afterwards.
The way to fight the lobbyist in my opinion would be more the legal way rather and these sporadic actions. Yes, some could say that Kim Dotcom made profits from the illegal distribution of copyrighted works. However any copyright holder could inform Megauplaod to remove the link of the copyrighted content. If you’re trying to read a bit more on this, he was arrested because he was about to launch a service called MegaBox, and this service was trying to bypass the industry music or movie distribution as we actually know it. And obviously a massive threat for this industry. And yes this character unknown from the majority of people before 19 of January is described as controversial in the media. But that doesn’t mean he is not right about certains things. He wanted to compete with these majors. And there is nothing wrong with that. Shouldn’t the U.S. for be free market ?
Dear reader, don’t you see that this music /media/ movie industry is wrong and corrupted ?
Wrong because they trying to protect their job so they say, they ‘re saying piracy or files download illegally have cost them millions, billions of loss. But if you think differently, how much how could have made this industry if they understood the new digital world we are living in ? They should understand that file sharing is not crime, and it has never killed any artist. Kim.Dotcom understood our digital world and took the opportunity and created a market and something new.
Corrupted because as they see their interest threaten they’re trying to enforce law in their advantages, more than for the benefit of everyone. Do you know how long a copyright on a content last on the U.S ? According to the law Copyright Term Extension Act, someone who want to use a copyrighted work have to wait 120 years before it can go to the public domain. Was this law made to defend the interest of the creators, or trying to ensure revenue of people such as Walt Disney for life time ? Is this fair and for the benefit of everyone ?
They may have taken MegaUpload, but they will never stop filesharing
