isoHunt Shuts Down After Deal With Motion Picture Association of America

MPAA.jpg

Torrent aggregator site, IsoHunt, last week reached an agreement with the Motion Picture Association of America which would require it to cease all operations. isoHunt closed down hastily to prevent people from making a copy of the site and its torrents. This is it. We are shutting down isoHunt services a little early. I’m told there was this Internet archival team that wants to make historical copy of our .torrent files, I’m honoured that people think our site is worthy of historical preservation. But the truth is about 95% of those .torrent files can be found off Google regardless and…

Australian Internet Censorship Brought Up Again After Agencies Block ‘Questionable’ Websites.

d93708d8-b542-11e2-8f1a-9cb73aefe9c7_A67C0539-646x363.jpg

Communist Conroyism strikes back after it’s alleged that Stephen Conroy (pictured), the communications minister of Australia, passed on information dealing with blocking Australian internet users from visiting various websites. Australian Greens senator Scott Ludlam claims that the federal government has now revived internet censorship concerns with evidence that its agencies are using powers to block Australian users from accessing websites more widely than first thought. The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) confirms that it has asked internet service providers (ISPs), including Telstra, to block access to two websites believed to be part of a share trading scam in late…

US Government Orders 3D Gun Templates to Be Removed From the Net…so Download Here.

images(2)

The US government has demanded designs for a 3D-printed gun be taken offline. Impossible. The order to remove the template files for the plastic gun comes after they were downloaded more than 100,000 times. They were being hosted on MEGA. The US State Department wrote to the gun’s designer, Defense Distributed, suggesting publishing them online may breach arms-control regulations. Naturally, you can still download the .STL files from The Pirate Bay…or…you know, the dozens of websites which will suddenly make sure there are as much mirrors as possible.

BT, Sky, Virgin, O2 Amongst ISP’s Blocking Torrent Sites

H33T.png

So far a High Court verdict has enforced mandatory censorship for major internet service providers BT, Sky, Virgin Media, O2, EE and TalkTalk. The sites in question that have been blocked are The Pirate Bay, KickAss Torrents (KAT), Fenopy and H33T.   Earlier this month, Torrentfreak reported that the fantasy action series “Game of Thrones” was the most pirated television program. This triggered a rather welcoming response from HBO’s programming president Michael Lombardo who considered the statistics as a compliment, especially as Game of Thrones was the network’s best-selling DVD season release of 2012.   “The demand is there. And…

SimCity Game’s Anti-Piracy Measures Cause Upset Forcing Amazon to Take Action.

simcity_down_660.jpg

The highly anticipated release of PC game SimCity has been met with unanimous condemnation over its anti-piracy measures. The game requires players to be connected to the internet to play the game and if that’s not enough of a deterrent, if the servers are full or undergoing maintenance then you’re shit out of luck. SimCity, the first release of the archetypal city-building simulator in 10 years, has now been made ‘unavailable’ through online retailing giant Amazon.com Players are finding that the servers are being overloaded and therefore aren’t saving their game progress. Anyone who genuinely purchased the game is confronted…

The Record Industry Is Losing: Why Some Artists Are FINALLY Escaping the Greedy, Copyright Nazi’s Who Own(ed) Them.

piracyisnttheft.jpg

It’s no secret that the relationships between artists and publishers have always been tense – this (mostly) comes down to the fact that many contracts claim absolute ownership of the artist. This can – no joke – include control over opinions, fashion style, concert setlists and views that may conflict with the record industries business ventures (for example; many record company executives are Jewish and therefore they require artists to refrain from having a say on tensions in Israel) If you take a look at the RIAA website’s response to the common questions related to piracy — archived here –…

The ITU UN Treaty for Internet Regulation Has Been Blocked.

Signatures-Against-the-treaty.png

The UN’s International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has failed in its attempt to revise – and practically encourage censorship – state regulations on the internet. Major western UN Countries – including The US, Canada and The UK – have objected to calls for to have equal rights to the governance of the internet and the treaty’s proposal has now been shelved. “It’s with a heavy heart and a sense of missed opportunities that the US must communicate that it’s not able to sign the agreement in the current form,” said Terry Kramer the US ambassador to the World Conference on International…

[SPECIAL SERIES] [The Deep Web] Human Experiments and Groups Dedicated to Subject Research.

part-two.png

As I covered in my previous story; the ‘deep web’ is a place filled with interesting (or disturbing) content that has to be accessed explicitly by means other than your everyday “type URL – hit enter – view website” routine. I received notification (from who I recently confirmed was the WordMean editor-in-chief) that a few inquiries had been sent in regards to my claims in that last article. I understand that there are many concerns over my anonymity and potential links to government bodies but let’s just say that I do not work for the government – I used to,…

[IN-DEPTH] the Ultimate Guide to Torrents.

clip_image002.jpg

At the beginning of the year we claimed that the best way for corporations to battle piracy would be to stop going over-the-top and claiming pirates were all thieving bastards who never purchased the stuff they like. For that,  we were supposedly “conspiring to promote copyright infringement” – an allegation that the US Department of Justice threw at us. We didn’t really see what the problem was seeing as we hadn’t explicitly “conspired” to “promote” – but hell, we figured we might as well do what we were falsely accused of. Here goes. At just over 1200 words and split…

New Zealand PM Apologises to Kim Dotcom and NZ for Illegally Spying on the Megaupload Founder.

image.png

New Zealand’s Prime Minister John Key has apologised to Kim Dotcom after an official report exposed details of an agency illegally carrying out surveillance on the Megaupload founder. The report released found that the Government Communications and Security Bureau (GCSB) had spied on Dotcom, notwithstanding the fact that there are strict laws against it. “It is the GCSB’s responsibility to act within the law, and it is hugely disappointing that in this case its actions fell outside the law,” Key said in a statement, in addition to the claim that the slip-up was the result of “basic errors”. Key has…
