Nexicon auto-generates DMCA notices to a suspected illegal file-sharer’s ISP which is then forwarded with an e-mail link for the “GetAmnesty” website.

Indeed!

Just posted this article on the front page of CDFreaks.

It will not be popular among music listeners and YouTube fans, but I am sure the RIAA will absolutely love it! I e-mailed Nexicon and hope to hear back from the company later this week, but have doubts as to whether or not anything other than canned responses will be offered up.

Cheers!

Wouldnt using a program like peerguardian stop this? Seems like it would to me

I wouldn’t worry just yet. This is just more of
hollywoods desperation in trying to stop it. The
problem is there are a lot of computer systems with
firewalls ,and other protections. My problem with this
is not stopping the piracy,but the hacking into peoples
privacy. I think there will be a lot of legal challenges by
the FCC,and the A.C.L.U. to block that company for
a while.

going beyond all the legal aspects of file sharing, i actually think that if a system similar to this gets perfected it would be really good for artist profit.

they could still make money and cut out the record labels, who are the ones really making the money now. :slight_smile:

I am kind of torn on this. I think that once you buy something it is yours to do with what you wish. Meaning if I go out and buy a CD (LOL, I don’t because I have two iPods but hypothetical) and I have paid xxx amount of money for it…I now own it…which means I should legally be able to do whatever I want with it. If that means burning copy after copy or uploading it into my iTunes then I should be able to do it. Same goes for P2P sharing…in my opinion

Ooooh. That’s unfortunate evil grin :bigsmile:

True…BUT the person you are shareing/downloading the files from you using P2P software didn’t buy it … End of message :cool:

Hey guys, I sent an e-mail over to Nexicon, and will let you know what I hear back.

Both you and I know this is nothing to do with rewarding the the artist and every thing to do with the studio and record label if the RIAA ever sends them the money.
To make my position clear if I want a cd or film other than that transmitted into my home via sky etc I will go out and purchase it. However the price charged in the UK by suppliers is often over priced. Therefore I forgo the pleasure unless someone gives me the item as a Birthday or Christmas present.
I further believe that copyright should be 30 years max, not the 70 years or more that they are pushing for.

Some of the dvd’s,and music I buy from the U.K. are
not much higher then the prices here in the united states.
Hollywoods threats with nexicon are not working anyway
most of the bit torrents,limewire etc… change versions
all the time. If hollywood could really stop piracy they would
not still be offering a million dollar reward.
