I'm a grumpy bastard.
|It was down for me earlier but back to normal now|
|Anyone else got problems with it tonight?|
|Oh that's interesting... it doesn't even recognise it as a site.|
Couldn't get that to work... |

Yeah, it's down for me at the moment. Was working a little earlier though.
|That downforit is the most awesome website ever.|
|Newsgroups are the way to go|
Downloading stuff = Bad but I spend most of my monies on stuff I can and the rest I dont care (plus most people do stuff I dont morally agree with, it's all subjective). And erm I dont do it much anymore thanks to my ISP telling me off (and there is only one ISP here so if I got disconnected no more ADSL).|
Downloading stuff and paying for the right (newsgroups) = too far. (imo). I have friends who do it, and love it. But it just doesent settle for me.
The whole thing is just a farce, I would love to see Google taken to court in the US because oh noes! they show links to naughty files.|
They should be arrested for aiding every type of pirating in the world, kiddie porn, the lot.
|Really surprised by this news, I thought they'd win. Sad day.|
I dug into my CD collection the other day and had a little chuckle to myself as I had left the sticker on several of them.|
16.99 for Back to Mine mixed by faithless? It's a good album, but it wasn't worth seventeen pounds eight years ago. At least musical artists seem to be making money out of live performances.
|So what exactly is the difference between google and TPB? Other than corporate leverage and mission statement?|
|Doesn't seem like anything will happen to TPB anyway.|
Pirate Bay is set up to index torrents (the evil).
Google is set up to index everything (good and evil).
Yes Yes I know not all torrents are evil, but Im taking it from the point of view of this case
Meh. My empathy is limited. Don't know enough about the details to know how ridiculous or not ridiculous the decision is.|
So what exactly is the difference between google and TPB? Other than corporate leverage and mission statement?
For starters, Google reacts to claims of copyright infringement.
|This angers me.|
Google search: -inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:"index of" mp3 "pearl jam"|
- and bang, i have some unfortunate pearl jam on my pc.
Surely they're assisting the distribution of media as much as TPB. But i can imagine the google lawyers have a slightly bigger budget then the TPB guys.
|Google for 'the pirate bay' omg Google links to sites that link to illegal torrents!|
Regardless of the name and content, it is still simply a tracker site.|
Isn't it a bit like fidning the highways agency/goverment or whoever guilty for drivers braking the speed limit?
|Bloody hell that makes me cross, very surprising verdict, no doubt they'll appeal.|
say no to Eurogamer sigs
they'll appeal and it'll go on but all the same 'boooo'|
