Re: How can police/FBI ever catch when youre downloading

QUESTIONS
The only way would be if they could track the file
being downloaded to your computer IP address. The
country or torrent that you are using would have to
list the location of the down load into their files
Most however block the location. That is why HOLLYWOOD
is for example trying to put pressure on the swedish GOVT.
for one to change their file sharing laws. My suggestion to
you is don't do it. I know it's tempting for some but it's
really not worth it.
ZAP.

Maybe they hang out at forums such as this waiting for people to ask for help with illegal downloads?

In all honesty, unless you have a piracy operation in your living room, the FBI and police authorities aren't interested in you. You should be more afraid of an organization such as the RIAA or MPAA filing a lawsuit against you!

I just read where the RIAA just closed a lawsuit on a girl who is sick for 8,000 dollars. I believe she is ninteen and is in and out of the hospital and mom only makes 8.25 and hour.

They are the ones the FBI should be suponeaing and raiding and searching. They are the one causing the pirates to make money. They only benefit the other side rather then lessening they are giving the pirate more power and money. DRM only helps pirates. RIAA/MPAA are in the loosing bracket and loosing consumers who would support the authors. Just like the ruling in lawsuit against a lady from MN for 250,000 was thrown out by the judge. But the MPAA says they have evidence but if one thinks about it if so why didn't they bring during the first trial?? Meaning they have very little in evidence but only surcumstance and plus you can't under the law do a "double jeporady" when someone when ruling against them is overturn. I think they are shooting themselves in the foot rather then find a solution that should benefit the Authors and consumers but they are only in it for their pocket book. That is the real story they could give a ***&& about us as long as they lined their pockets.

just build a new comp with as many hard drives as you can afford to load it with, and slap on a usb wireless card..

more than likely if you live in a non section 8 apartment complex there are multiple unsecured wireless networks and APs... connect to one of them and download away.. =)

Re: How can police/FBI ever catch when youre downloading

The biggest mistake people make when downloading movies games music ...ect... is people leave it in a sheared folder SUTIPD NOOBS!!!!!! NEVER SHARE FOLDERS LOCK DOWN YOUR SHEARED FILES ONLY KEEP THEM OPEN TO THE P2P PROGRAM YOU ARE USING AND HAVE A IP BLOCK. I usto work for some special government program if you need any thing to protect your self let me know ill hook it up or put you in the right direction!!!!
