Kim Dotcom’s Extradition Appeal Concludes, Will He Get a “Fair Go”?
After more than four weeks the extradition appeal hearings of Kim Dotcom and his former Megaupload colleagues have concluded. In his closing arguments, Dotcom's lawyer urged the court to carefully weigh the facts and give his client a "fair go," which he says the District Court failed to do. However, even if the High Court sides with the defense, the case is still far from over.

Cloudflare: We Can’t Shut Down Pirate Sites - As one of the leading CDN and DDoS protection services, Cloudflare is used by millions of websites across the globe. This includes thousands of “pirate” sites, including The Pirate Bay, who rely on the U.S. based company to keep server loads down. Copyright holders are generally not happy that Cloudflare is doing business with these sites. While most stop at complaining, adult entertainment outfit ALS Scan took the matter to court.

YouTube-MP3 Ripping Site Sued By IFPI, RIAA and BPI - Two weeks ago, the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry published research which claimed that half of 16 to 24-year-olds use stream-ripping tools to copy music from sites like YouTube. The industry group said that the problem of stream-ripping has become so serious that in volume terms it had overtaken downloading from ‘pirate’ sites. Given today’s breaking news, the timing of the report was no coincidence. Earlier today...

Court: Uploaded Can’t Ignore ‘Spam’ Copyright Notices - With millions of visitors per month, Uploaded is one of the largest file-hosting services on the Internet. Like many of its ‘cloud hosting’ competitors, the service is also used to share copyright infringing material, which is a thorn in the side of various copyright holder groups. In Germany this has resulted in several lawsuits, where copyright holders want Uploaded to be held liable for files that are shared by its users, if they fa...

ISPs Offered Service to “Protect Safe Harbor” Under DMCA - Early August, a federal court in Virginia found Internet service provider Cox Communications liable for copyright infringements carried out by its customers. The ISP was found guilty of willful contributory copyright infringement and ordered to pay music publisher BMG Rights Management $25 million in damages.

BitTorrent Inc. has introduced a brand new feature for its uTorrent and BitTorrent clients. 'Altruistic Mode' is aimed at people who always want to share more than they download. While this is normal behavior for many users, Altruistic Mode has a strange quirk. Once enabled, downloads using the feature may never complete. But of course, altruism isn't about receiving.

MacOS Sierra Breaks Popular Keygens, Pirate Finds Fix - Those who prefer to pirate rather than pay for their software often face installation issues. These range from the very simple to the fairly complex, depending on the strength of the anti-piracy technology deployed by manufacturers. At the lower end of the scale, users are sometimes required to input a fake serial number into their software. This is achieved by running a key generator or “keygen”, a tool bundled with a pirate release b...
Apple is currently rolling out macOS Sierra, a major update to the Mac operating system. However, for those with pirate tendencies, the revision brings an unwelcome surprise. Some popular 'keygens', which help many pirate releases run, have been broken by the update. But of course, persistent pirates aren't far behind with a fix.

TPBClean: A ‘Safe for Work’ Pirate Bay Without Porn - Over the years, regular Pirate Bay visitors have seen plenty of scarcely dressed girls being featured on the site. The XXX category has traditionally been one of the largest, and TPB’s ads can show quite a bit of flesh as well. While there are many people who see this adult themed content as a feature, not everyone appreciates it. This didn’t go unnoticed to “MrClean,” a developer with quite a bit of experience when it comes to torrent p...
