Keep it going. With 2,545 views of this thread, at a declared rate of .243% I'm up to a whopping 5.48 (before taxes) if the going rate is 1/view.


Corrine, this is my contribution to your new found prosperity.

Luckily, Forum Threads officially falls under non-taxable commodities under the FTC's latest release, along with US customs.

That is great news, LiquidSnak. With the tax rates here, that would have cut it almost in half.

Hello,

A Princeton University undergrad who did an analysis of BitTorrent DHT traffic classifed just under 1% (0.97%) of torrented files are non-infringing. The remaining 99.03% of files were found to be copyrighted material. Source: Census of Files Available via BitTorrent, which is hosted by Princeton's Center for Information Technology Policy. It was discussed on Ars Technica earlier this year, which is where I heard about the study.

While I have some concerns about the methodology—for instance, I would like to have seen results from more protocols and a larger file set—from my own experience this sounds like a reliable figure.

Regards,

Aryeh Goretsky

It sounds quite plausible...the 1% would be the different flavors of Linux Distros.

@Skulblaka: Absolutely..It's quite ridiculous. You actually go out and buy a DVD instead of just downloading it somewhere and as a "Thank You" you get plastered with those non skipable warnings and a ***load of non ads. Geesh why don't they put them behind the main movie where people who are into that stuff could still watch it.
That's why I rip the movies, I buy with DVDFab option "main movie only" that saves the original and my nerves

Hi there
actually it's easy to rip Vinyl tracks as well -- although the beauty of Vinyl is that the quality of sound is MUCH MUCH better than a hugely compressed MP3 file (which is why I always keep my music in FLAC format -- although compressed this is LOSSLESS compression at the highest quality bit rate).

I have some gear that can CUT vinyl discs -- I sometimes make some for colleagues from their music -- I print a customised label also on the disc for them.

Finally found a new source for Blank Vinyl -- from a Chinese factory in Shanghai -- prices are also very cheap for 100 blanks in packs of 7, 10 and 12 inch.

Technically I'm breaking the law -- but IMO this would be REDICULOUS.

People sharing stuff will ALWAYS continue -- what a horrible Planet this would become if humans couldn't share stuff.

How this needs to be managed in a sensible manner in a commercial environment is of course the tricky part.

The genie is out of the bottle now -- and the main problem I see with Music is that there isn't much new stuff appearing of any commercial value so even if the music industry tightened its grip on new releases there's enough out there already to keep people happy for the next 500 years or so without ever buying another album (digital or physical) again.

In any case what about Out of Issue stuff or if I want to play a guitar , record it and give it away to anybody mad enough to listen.

The Lawyers and Suits have really got themselves into an unsolvable muddle and there is NO WAY they can win this one.

The onlly solution against Piracy is perhaps to either disable the OS as soon as someone starts to use a "Pirate copy" or charge sensible and realistic prices.

There should also be a lot more Try before you buy stuff --but with ALL the features enabled.

Whatever we say about Adobe and their pricing you can at least TRY the FULL version of their products for 30 days without any hobbling / restrictions.

Cheers
