Mulve music downloader app is the RIAA’s worst nightmare.

[newsimage]http://static.rankone.nl/images_posts/2010/09/xpqAKb.jpg[/newsimage]There is a continued battle between the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and music listeners, as yet another interesting file sharing service has appeared.  The new Mulve file sharing program isn't a peer-to-peer program, and users download music file straight from servers.

Please note that the reactions from the complete site will be synched below.

Wait a minute. So you use servers in countries where sharing music isn’t illegal? I’m surprised it took anyone this long to get around to do doing that… Allthough if there server provides all the bandwidth, I wonder where the cash is coming from?

Agreed.
I can’t see this lasting very long.
I suspect this “Mulve” will go the way of The Pirate Bay … virii, browser hijacks, malware, p8rn & russian bride advertising everywhere :wink:

I don’t know what your saying. But The Pirate Bay is still up and running everyday. I get my tv shows there.

Even the founders of The Pirate Bay hate what the site has become.

If you’re visiting the site, and your antivirus/antimalware is NOT going nuts … I’d be concerned.

EZTV is better for series.

Moot point.

I guess redundancy, and expanding outside RIAA influence, is the key to any site operating outside of copyright laws :wink:

At any rate … you can apparently get a program equivalent to Mulve from

Source code here ->http://code.google.com/p/pirateapp/

Note that the above site is unverified, and I have not checked any files from this site. User caution ie scanning with antivirus/antimalware and whatnot are recommended before downloading/executing any files from the internet.

Well, now that the Mulve installer is being shared via BitTorrent, there’s no stopping or taking down distribution of the program, so it’ll be with us for a long time folks.

[QUOTE=remouz;2547153]Like a said, a long time ago, there is only one good way to download without troubles: Usenet newsgroups

Never RIAA, HADOPI and others will takes down….

i love usenet[/QUOTE]
News at 9 … RIAA/MPAA threatens usenet mirror owners with DMCA takedown notices and legal action.
News at 10 … FBI assumes control of random usenet servers with infringing content.
News at 11 RIAA/MPAA catches thousands of pirates on usenet after FBI releases access logs for usenet servers.

Of course … if the mirrors are outside the USA … and other countries which are happy to bend over and take it up ther rear … then there’s probably not much that can be done, except petition the government of said country to provision police & experts to shutdown servers & whatnot

The Mulve program is apparently a gui rewrite of the above posted program.

The above posted program simply refers the search to a popular russian version of a facebook type social networking site (that’s “social”, not socialist :stuck_out_tongue: ). The program just reparses the results for readability.
