Pirate Bay’s Fredrik Neij Appeals Denial to Print In Prison - Fredrik Neij, also known as Tiamo, was one of the key operators of The Pirate Bay. In 2010 Fredrik received a prison sentence for his involvement with the notorious site, which he initially avoided. After being on the run for several years he was eventually arrested by Thai immigration authorities late last year, and later transferred to a prison in Skänninge, Sweden. While reportedly doing well, prison life ... http://ow.ly/2X8zy3

Google Removes FrostWire BitTorrent App From Play Store - FrostWire has become a well-known file-sharing brand over the past decade. The application was first released in 2004 as a LimeWire fork, but underwent several changes over the years. Today it’s mostly a BitTorrent client, but it also offers the option to access content from YouTube. FrostWire is available on all major operating systems and does particularly well on Android where it has 2.9m active installs. Yest... http://ow.ly/2X5IBs

ISP Pulls VPN Service After Geo-Unblocking Legal Threats - While VPN services have always been associated with privacy, in recent years they have bloomed into tools providing much more than a simple way to stay cloaked online. For a relatively small fee, users of the most popular VPN services can tunnel out of their country of origin and reappear in any one of dozens of countries around the world. This opens up a whole new world of media consumption opportunities. Citiz... http://ow.ly/2X3WXI

Spanish Court Orders First Pirate Music Site Block - After long maintaining a reputation for being one of the softest countries in Europe on piracy, in recent years Spain has really toughened up its approach to online infringement. Last month the strength of new legislation became evident when a Madrid court gave local Internet service providers just 72 hours to block notorious torrent site The Pirate Bay (TPB). The legal action against TPB was launched by the Associati... http://ow.ly/2X2o8k
Spain's National Court has ordered ISPs to block Goear.com, a comprehensive unlicensed music streaming site popular with locals. The order, the first of its type against a dedicated music site, follows the instruction to block The Pirate Bay last month on copyright grounds.

Top Torrent Tracker Knocked Offline Over “Infringing Hashes” http://ow.ly/2X05L7
Coppersurfer, one of the largest BitTorrent trackers on the Internet, has been taken offline after it refused to block 'infringing' hashes. Hosting provider LeaseWeb pulled the plug on the site after a tip-off from Dutch anti-piracy group BREIN, who also demanded that the site operator should step out of anonymity.

Major Labels Sue Music Leaker After FBI Investigation - If there is one issue guaranteed to incense recording labels and artists alike it’s the premature public availability of pre-release music. Over the years leaks from popular artists have featured in countless online piracy cases, painted by the labels as some of the most damaging forms of unauthorized distribution. While some believe that leaks are useful for creating buzz, labels often argue that availability amou... http://ow.ly/2X6Ogo

Warner Bros Denies “Abuse” in Piracy Settlement Scheme - Two years ago Warner Bros. teamed up with Rightscorp to send small fines to U.S. Internet subscribers whose accounts were used to share copyrighted material. At the time the Hollywood studio informed us that it was meant as a “discouragement of future unauthorized activity,” but the speculative invoicing strategy was met with great criticism. Hoping to stop the practices, several Internet subscribers joined a clas... http://ow.ly/2X4Atv

Popcorn Time Releases iOS App Tomorrow, No Jailbreak Needed - In just a year the Popcorn Time brand has managed to establish itself as one of Hollywood’s main threats, and even Netflix fears the open source project. One of the big appeals, aside from the easy-to-use interface, is the fact that it’s available on many platforms and devices. Now, there’s a brand new release that will extend this list. On its one year anniversary tomorrow the Popcorn-Time.se fork will relea... http://ow.ly/2X3fbn
One of the most-used Popcorn Time forks will release an iOS app for non-jailbroken devices tomorrow. The new release opens up a whole new audience of hundreds of millions of devices. In addition, the Popcorn Time team suggests that other developers will soon be able to use the custom installer to break Apple's closed ecosystem too.

iiNet loses Dallas Buyers Club Piracy Case - Back in 2012, the Australian High Court ruled that ISP iiNet was not responsible for the copyright infringements of its customers. Stymied by that ruling, many Australian file-sharers breathed a sigh of relief, as Antipodean users are usually amongst the last to get content, forgotten in the long-tail of media distribution. Conversely, it also meant that they were one of the last English-speaking (and English common-law) coun... http://ow.ly/2X1G34

ISP Teksavvy Appeals in Hurt Locker Piracy Case - After numerous experiments elsewhere, notably in the US, two years ago Voltage Pictures took its turn piracy-into-profit business model to Canada. The company’s targets were 2,000 Internet subscribers at local ISP Teksavvy. The early stages of the case saw the ISP dig in its heels while bringing on board the Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic (CIPPIC) with the aim of protecting consumers from potentially... http://ow.ly/2WYqxG

Research: Piracy Increases Literacy and Access to Knowledge - In Western countries piracy is often seen as a leisure tool, granting people unauthorized access to the latest hits and Hollywood blockbusters. However, there are also parts of the world where piracy is frequently used as a means to gather and spread knowledge. In parts of Africa, for example, where legal access to educational books and software is often restricted or unavailable. Over the years we have seen ... http://ow.ly/2WX0yR

Piracy is a sacrifice. Compression. It lowers the quality. The pirate also sacrifices compatibility issues and having to use different software. Yes it may be free, but if i enjoy it i will most likely buy it. I am sorry but information should be free.
