Pirate Bay

Pirate Bay allows users to search for and download BitTorrent files, small files that contain metadata, whichare necessary to download data files from other users. The torrents are organized into categories: Audio, Video, Applications, Games and other. Pirate Bay is a long-running project of performance art. Normally the front page of Pirate Bay features a drawing of a pirate ship with the logo of the 1980s anti-copyright infringement campaign, ‘Home Taping Is Killing Music’, on its sails.

Pirate Bay is a site where one can easily find pirated videos, audios, applications and others. It contains millions of pirated objects. People are allowed to become its members for free, by just providing their name and an e-mail address. After taking membership people can download torrents of any type from Private Bay. Pirate Bay is updated on regular basis and even members can upload torrents to share them with other members. Pirate Bay is an advancement over file sharing and registers millions of logins per week. Recently it released the pirated copy of Iron Man 2 on its site.

Legal Issues
Bit Torrent trackers have been subjected to raids and shutdowns due to claims of copyright infringement. Bit Torrent metafiles do not store copyrighted data, however it has been claimed that Bit Torrent trackers(which only store and track the metafiles) are legal even if sharing the data in question would be considered a violation of copyright. The verdict against the founders of Pirate Bay is being hailed by many as a triumphant win against illegal file-sharing. Four men who were involved in the Bit Torrent tracking site, were found guilty on Friday of being accessories to violating copyright law. A Swedish court sentenced each of them to a year in jail and a collective fine of $3.6 million. Pirate Bay doesn’t actually host copyrighted files — it simply allows users to post links to material hosted on third-party servers. That’s why, incidentally, prosecutors ended up dropping the initial charge of assisting in copyright infringement and pursuing a case for assisting in making available copyrighted material free of charge instead.

Just recently, Pirate Bay team prepared a new service called IPREDator. It allows people to surf the Net more anonymously using a virtual private network, or VPN. Unlike other VPN services, the Pirate Bay promises its IPREDator will keep no logs of customer activity and therefore no one could never turn user information over to authorities. As pirate bay has been recently sold, some of the things the new owners must keepin mind:
• Pirate Bay needs to avoid Napster’s fate at all costs. Despite being launched three times, Napster has not been able to capture the imagination and interest of people.
• People come to Pirate Bay for everything from MP3s to episodes of their favorite TV shows, the site should not mention rogue copies of movies and music.
• Pirate Bay was primarily a conduit for file sharers to find each other, so the site really had no control over download speeds. The new owners must focus on maintaing the speed.

Iron Man 2 was out on Pirate Bay, Even Before Release!

The one movie this summer that has been generating a lot of talks is Iron Man 2. The movie is to be released only a few days from now in the Northern American States.  Just like any movie before its release, especially the ones that seem to have all five stars rating always gets into the pirated market. The Iron Man 2 movie seems to have met the same fate. Even before its release the movie is already being sold as pirated copies.

The movie that has Robert Downey Jr in the lead role has brought in colossal amount of money approximately $100 million from ticket sales. The movie sure did enjoy a great weekend in the overseas market! The pirated copies seem to have been made there, it looks like these people who watched the movie debut oversees walked into theatres with cameras, recorded the entire movie, and made copies that were later sold.

If you were at The Pirate Bay, the innumerable Paramount Picture copies couldn’t have missed your attention.   If you wondered where all the theatre recorded movies went, then surprise of all surprises, they all seemed to have made their way here! For some of us this wasn’t much of a surprise, we quiet assumed that most of the pirated copies of movies sold here were the ones recorded in movie theatres. If you haven’t noticed already, or are not a patron of pirated copies, then you probably would like to know that these theatre copied movies are of the worse quality, you have to deal with blocked views, muffled tones of laughter and talk etc. Basically it has everything that you would notice while watching a movie in a theatre. However if you buy these copies, it just shows how bad you miss the theatres and that watching the movie was the least bit on your mind.

By now you should know that buying pirated movies or even patronizing them is a big slap on all those artists and creative minds who work hard at putting together a movie for your entertainment. Its not just about the hard work, its also about the capital that those guys invest in making a movie, and we ridicule them by buying pirated copies of the movie off the road. The Government needs to take a hold of this market and make sure that piracy of any sorts be it movie or fashion as well is put an end to.

Last year the FBI had arrested Giberto Sanchez with regards to selling pirated copies of the movie “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”. He was rightly charged with violating copyright laws, unfortunately though, the case still lies pending.

There have been several instances where people responsible for selling pirated copies, through the Internet have been caught by the law. According to a few reports by the law enforcement authorities, selling of pirated copies are linked to organized crime, it’s a huge nexus!

The Motion Picture Association of America has also said that the DVD sales of movies have dwindled over the past few years because of these pirated copies that are released through the Internet.
