Copyright infringing post

Filed under: Uncategorized — niezmierniespokojny @ 9:38 pm

Just read a torrentfreak article on a torrentz censorship and it really strikes me how far-fetched are claims of copyright abusers.

They send a DMCA notice to google. This means that they meant that google was infringing. According to them, Google was infringing because it linked to an infringing site – torrentz.eu.

torrentz was infringing…why? The notice doesn’t mention it. But torrentz is a search engine that links to sites containing torrent files. Probably some of this sites hosted a torrent file that they considered infringing.

That file enabled downloading of another file. That other file was copyrighted and may have been distributed w/out permission.

To sum up, the link flow went like this:

  1. google
  2. torrentz
  3. some torrentz search result
  4. some site
  5. torrent file
  6. pirate swarm

So they mean that if you’re 5 links away from a file they hold copyright on, you’re a pirate.

I just linked to torrentz.eu, exactly like google did. I’m a pirate.

Actually, Paramount is a pirate too. On their main page they link to youtube. You can find plenty of pirated files in there just another 1-2 clicks farther. That’s just 2-3 links in total.

I wonder what limit of the number of links do they consider satisfactory to not be a pirate. 5 is too little. Is there any limit? Anyway, senary liability is nonsense. Just like secondary liability, just far more extreme.

Somebody should punish those punks for abusing a broken system (DMCA). And fix the system.
