If these guys weren't making so much money i would have a lot more sympathy for them.
Probably double standards i know but that's me all over.
well... not to get into it all but, things used to be "different"
i dont think ppl "get" the right perception, or know as much as they think they do, or what they do think they know, is right.
oh btw, no difference in HOW you get things, via torrent, usegroup or what have you, you still got it from the main source... it just trickled down to you... now it doesnt take as long for that process due to bandwidth nowadays.
As for the article/news, i cant see how this judgement was handed down. By definition, they arent hosting anything illegal themselves. Would be like having a forum, and some person comes there posting racist comments or whatever, and your place gets the blame for just having an outlet for the guy's comments. Or, guy starts a fight at a pub, pub is found liable and only guilty party for the actions.
now the t-shirts and other stuff do make my stomach feel ill... but thats capitalism i guess (they are selling their own brand/name albeit)
