The Spy Torrent


It also provided a forum to comment on them and integrated the user-driven content site ShoutWire into the front page. In August 2007, there were more than 1,000,000 torrents indexed with thousands of new torrents indexed every day.[citation needed]




The Spy torrent



The Motion Picture Association of America filed a lawsuit in February 2006 for TorrentSpy facilitating copyright infringement as many torrents on its site were linking to copyrighted films. In December 2007 the court ruled against TorrentSpy.


In August 2007, TorrentSpy began denying access to United States users and international users using US-based ISPs. In response, the MPAA filed documents calling TorrentSpy's denial of access "another illegitimate attempt by defendants to evade authority of this court and the May 29 order", and asking for sanctions.[2] The ability for users to make comments on individual torrents was also disabled at this time.


We have decided on our own, not due to any court order or agreement, to bring the Torrentspy.com search engine to an end and thus we permanently closed down worldwide on March 24, 2008.The legal climate in the USA for copyright, privacy of search requests, and links to torrent files in search results is simply too hostile. We spent the last two years, and hundreds of thousands of dollars, defending the rights of our users and ourselves.Ultimately the Court demanded actions that in our view were inconsistent with our privacy policy, traditional court rules, and International law; therefore, we now feel compelled to provide the ultimate method of privacy protection for our users - permanent shutdown.


Downloading torrents is risky for you: your IP and leaked private data being actively tracked by your ISP and Government Agencies. Protect yourself from expensive lawsuits and fines NOW! You must use a VPN. It is the only way to download torrents fully anonymous by encrypting all traffic with zero logs.


One of the areas that governments and large corporations have been aggressively trying to limit is torrenting sites. As you probably already know, torrenting allows individuals anywhere in the world to share files without the need for a central server. Torrenting sites do not host the files, but simply serve as a "directories" for the connections to those files.


In recent years, the U.S. government, at the behest of several large media companies, has been aggressively trying to shut down these torrent directories. Megaupload was probably the most famous, but Demonoid, Pirate Bay, and others have been forced to shut down or relocate beyond the reach of law enforcement. Megaupload was taken down in January 2012 and its founder arrested. One year later, it was relaunched as MEGA and the legal case against its founder is floundering.


In addition, large media companies have employed "hired guns" to sniff out torrent traffic, identify the IP addresses of the uploaders, and attempt to pressure their ISPs to cut off their Internet access or pressure law enforcement to file charges against them.


Although there may be some illegal activity taking place on these torrent sites, they also can be an excellent method of sharing files between individuals anywhere on planet earth. They can also be a method of sharing uncensored information when an authoritative regime is trying to limit communication.


Two Dutch researchers at Delft University have developed an anonymous way to share files without the need for torrenting directory sites like Megaupload and Pirate Bay. Building upon a Tor-like technology, they have built an application that combines both the functionality of the torrent directory sites with torrent applications like BitTorrent or uTorrent. It is called Tribler. Developed for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, you can download it here.


As you can see in the screenshot below, I have downloaded and installed it on Windows 7 machine. Unlike BitTorrent and other torrenting applications, there is no need to download and install torrent files from a torrent directory. Tribler enables you to search and torrent in one application.


U.S. Files Suit Against Internet 'Spy Ware'The U.S. government has sued a New Hampshire man in its first attempt to crack down on Internet "spy ware" that seizes control of a user's computer without permission. The U.S. Federal Trade Commission asked a federal court to shut down an operation that it said disables users' computers in an attempt to bully them into buying anti-spy ware products. Internet users unwittingly download the software when they visit Web sites that contain certain banner ads. The software exploits a hole in Microsoft Corp.'s Internet Explorer Web browser to work its way onto computers without users' knowledge, according to the lawsuit. The software hijacks Web browsers, causes CD-ROM trays to mysteriously slide open and slows down computers or causes them to cease working altogether. A torrent of "pop up" messages urges consumers to buy programmes called Spy Wiper or Spy Deleter to clean up the mess. The FTC has taken action against companies that redirect browsers before but has never sued a company for secretly installing software. Spy ware comes in many forms -- from keystroke loggers that can capture passwords, credit-card numbers and other sensitive data to relatively harmless programmes that deliver pop-up ads. Currently there are no national anti-spy ware laws on the books, though several places have them.


Fighting state-sponsored terrorism and managing guerrilla warfare require more manpower in the field, new technical capability, and expanded expertise to analyze a torrent of new data. In addition, covert military operations, such as those in Central America, often involve direct support on the ground as well as heavy financial outlays to pay for military equipment, ammunition, food, medicine, and other elements of warfare. 076b4e4f54
