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.
Found guilty; 1 year in prison |
|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
|They did call themselves The "Pirate" Bay.|
Meh. My empathy is limited. Don't know enough about the details to know how ridiculous or not ridiculous the decision is.|

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'|
