Moves like this will accelerate ISP number masking software will become imbedded in all popular P2P programmes. Then it will be literally impossible to identify a user. The fact is only the police should be allowed to contact you’re ISP to get details.Paramount or whoever has no LEGAL right to get this information. ASll these moves do is ensure that it’s only a matter of a very small period of time before anyone can become anomomous on the internet.This will affect police trying to catch real criminals like child molesters who will also use the software. I would in fact hope that goverments world wide ban the likes of paramount from obtaining any information from your isp or relaying messages. The fact downloading will be driven to anominimty will have far reaching consequences for tracking real criminals on the net. I personally think people will have complete masking within 2 months and it will be thanks to the likes of paramount. Then (too late) the governments will realise what the studios,RIAA etc have done and come down hard on them,masking software is available now(for a monthly fee) it’s based where the riaa etc has nopowers at all. The company has said they do not want it used excessively for downloading but say no details will be passed to any organisation as they have nopowers in the country this masking is based in. This is a good idea in that you are prtected,if you download,from the real pondscum riaa ,paramount whoever but the international police could still be able to get details of real criminals. I fear total masking where by ISP numbers are mixed to give a false and totally untraceable mask will been released soon,they will more than likely be freeware programmes by people who want to show they have the power to render you invisible on the net.So thank paramount because soon the internet will be downloaders heaven and you have their legal(and illegal) activities to thank fo this being made possible. I also think those programmes used for BT,other p2p should change the programmes used to have a user agreement stating if you are a studio,RPAA,RIAA,or any body who maywill taken legal action against a fellow user you must not use this software to do will breach our user terms and conditions this way we can sue them if anyone gets a warning. This could even be a message before a download etc stating the same thing…only if you are not member ofxxx,or will not take any legal action against a fellow user may you continue this download,click to confirm. Kazza has such a lawsuit lets see some action from the p2p software makers.Not everything downloadable is illegal we can use p2p user programmes to effective stop them spying if they breach the user agreement of your p2p software your ISP would be legally required to ignore any requests for information as they themselves would have obtained this information illegally rendering it useless.
