Pirate Microsoft Backs Torrent 'Blocker' Software

Pirate Pay Torrent 'Blocker' backed by Microsoft



Blocking tool Pirate Pay draws its name from controversial piracy site The Pirate Bay

BBC World News 14 May 2012

(More Related Stories on this can be found in this section. )

A Russian company has developed software it says can disrupt and prevent people from downloading pirated content.
Pirate Pay has been backed by Microsoft and has so far worked with Walt Disney Studios and Sony Pictures to stop "thousands" of downloads.
The tool poses as real bit torrent users but then "confuses" peer-to-peer networks, causing disconnections.

Critics argue that the method will be ineffective in the long term.

The entertainment industry claims that the downloading of pirated material costs copyright holders billions of pounds in lost revenue every year.
Last month, the British Phonographic Industry won a court battle to force UK internet service providers to block its customers from accessing high-profile piracy site The Pirate Bay.

However, the true extent of the financial impact is strongly questioned by internet rights campaigners.

Swamping

It was previously reported that Pirate Pay began life as traffic management software for internet service providers.
From here they discovered it could be used to swamp peer-to-peer networks - which are used to share the files - with false information.
"After creating the prototype, we realised we could more generally prevent files from being downloaded, which meant that the program had great promise in combating the spread of pirated content," said Andrei Klimenko, the company's chief executive, in an interview with Russia Beyond the Headlines.

The technology has received high-profile praise from the president of Microsoft Russia - Pirate Pay was awarded one million rubles (62,000, $100,000) from a seed investment fund set up by the company behind Windows.

You don't solve social issues with technical fixes”
Richard Clayton University of Cambridge

A recent campaign saw Pirate Pay "protect" recent Russian film Vysotsky. Thanks to God, I am Alive, made by Walt Disney Studios.
Pirate Pay said it blocked 44,845 attempted illegal downloads of the film.
However, as one blog pointed out, the blocked downloaders might have simply just tried again later.

'Social issues'

Although exact details on how the system operates are not known outside of the company, security researcher Richard Clayton from the University of Cambridge told the BBC it was a process that could work, if only in the short term.
"If you flood the network with lots of lies, then you will be short of real things.
"[But] the networks are robust about this in the long term because you will say to your peer 'please give me this data', and when it gives you the data it will say 'this doesn't match' and throw it away."
Mr Clayton, who blogs about such issues, said peer-to-peer networks would eventually adapt, sharing information about "bogus" peers such as those reportedly utilised by companies like Pirate Pay.
Mr Clayton added: "You don't solve social issues with technical fixes.
"The social issue here is that a lot of people think that the legal offerings are too expensive and don't provide what they want.
"Once you solve that, nobody's going to want to mess around with complicated bits of software to get what they need."

Default Re: Microsoft Backs Torrent 'Blocker' Software

More of the same ol' same ol'. While I don't do torrents, there are literally millions that do. Once you take the step that some forms of free speech aren't allowed, it's a shorter step to other forms aren't allowed. Now that M$ has flexed it's muscle with doing some of that limiting, the copywrong gang will be on them like shine on gold to do more.

File sharing, ever since it's inception, has grown bigger and spread out into various methods. There are enough ways to share that no one solution is going to put the genie back in the bottle. Between the idea that the internet was built to route around damage and the idea that clients and methods to share can be devised in a few years tailored to meet special conditions is why the copywrong gang has never won.

The copywrong gang has this idea that it is a lack of education that sharing is wrong. They are bucking the trend that is taught to pretty much each child as they grow up that sharing is the proper way to deal with close friends. Were it education that was the problem, all this would have been settled back in the days of Edisons' wax cylinder player and player pianos. Copyright is un-natural. It will never be accepted by society as a whole as right and proper as it is against it's learning from an early age.

In the end there is no way to actually make people quit sharing. An example of that happened back in the days of when there were unions by class of labor, called guilds. There was the button makers' guild that had the lock on the making of buttons, how they should look, and who got to make them. But the clothing makers got to thinking they should have to pay such outrageous sums to the button makers to have fasteners. So they made their own out of cloth for near nothing. This put the button makers union in a tissy. So much so they go the law that allowed them to go into peoples houses to look in their wardrobes to see if they had clothes with cloth buttons and confiscate them if they were found.

Even the threat of death has not been enough to stop sharing involving copyright. It's simply impossible to make people see this as wrong. If it is impossible then it tells you the law is wrong as laws are made to help society make civilization work. That functions as well as greased wheels as long as the law and what society sees as right an proper coincide. When they part going in the same direction, society will ignore bad laws. Looking in history will render forth tons of examples if you can't put a few from off the top of your head.

M$'s idea of limiting will work no better than anyone elses over time.
