U.S. plans new raids on file swappers

I just posted the article U.S. plans new raids on file swappers.

Three days ago we reported that the warez scene was hit hard, today we read on Yahoo that according to US authorities this is just the start.

There will probably be more busts in other big…

Noticing ripples of this on irc. #Divx for instance is a lot more dead since this happened.

I think the fbi must do some real work like catching terrorists and when they want to do some online crime busting going after the pedofiles. Because i think sexual offences against a child is a more serious crime in my eyes then some groups who releases warez…

RDJ134: 100% agreement there. FBI’s got better things to do. i don’t like this one bit. the harder the pirates are pushed, the harder they will push back. power to the people!

Yeah… there are more important things… but they are getting big bucks (not to mention they look good politically) from software companies to do this sort of thing. It will only get worse as they monitor all net traffic “for terrorist activities”. Pretty soon every one will be a terrorist. Now if they could only cut back on some of the net scams and spam out there…

Ian is right. The FBI will put more effort into Warez than things like child abuse because with Warez they have big, multimillion dollar corporations putting the pressure on. With Porn the pressure isn’t as much in the form of money.

Couple of big iso distribution channels on Dalnet & EFNet have also changed their policy and aren’t allowing anyone to run an fserver… Looks like they got a lot of people spooked… :c

Hmm, then you perhaps didn’t know the new news. FBI is making some backdoors to use them in the future against warez piratez :r

Bastards!! Basically what this means is that warez distro. will calm down until they do their next report and find that the amount of warez on the net seems lower. As soon as they do this then they’ll stop going after it so badly because they will have ‘fixed the problem’. Then it’ll start up again. Realistically, it’ll probably all go back to normal in a couple of weeks!! :slight_smile:

For the latest details check this: http://www.urbanghetto.net/dod/ :frowning:

exactly they should be doing more stuff oin what REALLY matters such as sick pedophiles and such its to bad that things that involve “losing money” seem to be the 1st priority. sucks really… :d

Oh no!!! once all the warez is gone all thats gonna be left is porn :confused:

what they gonna do bomb us like they are Bin Laden :4 It is a fight they can never win, they are wasting valuable resources that could be put too better use, and leave us peeps alone in peace :8 evil gits :frowning: See the USA thinks they can step in whenever they like and take over. tut tut tut! What goes on in the UK etc. has nothing too do with the USA, they should keep too themselves and not try and take over the world This is a from some archives I found on AOL. No offence too anyone but have read, the US don’t even no where Bin Laden is US OFFICIALS SAY SITUATION STILL UNCLEAR IN TORA BORA CNN: Excerpt from bin Laden video AMERICAN and Afghan forces are making slow but steady progress in gaining control of the Tora Bora area according to the US war commander for Afghanistan. Tribal fighters say they have taken the last al-Qaida positions but Army General Tommy Franks warned there is still work to do. “They are making progress, but I think it’s accurate to say that it’s going to be a while before we have the area of Tora Bora fully under control,” Franks said. “It’s physically a matter of digging out the al-Qaida from these caves and tunnels. … It’s a matter of inching our way forward up the sides of these canyons and physically going into each one of these bunkers and caves,” Franks said. Bin Laden’s whereabouts were uncertain, Franks said. He noted that US officials have been trying to monitor radio transmissions that may or may not contain bin Laden’s voice. “We’re not sure whether it’s OBL (Osama bin Laden) or not. … When one listens to these radio transmissions, is that the voice of OBL or is it not? … Is it really true that bin Laden is in Pakistan? We simply don’t know right now,” Franks said.

Bin Ladin is a CIA asset, the FBI was pulled off the case of several of the hijackers months before september 11, bush has ties to Carlye group and has recieved millions when bin laden family cashed out after sept 11, CIPRO was dispensed to Bush and top aides WEEKS before anthrax hit the post office, David Schippers [impeachment lawyer for republicans and prosecutor of major mafia cases] was refused audience with Ashcroft months before attacks with information on The Base, Russia warns of commercial aircraft that will be used to attack months before september, CIA agent meets with Bin Laden in American hospital in Dubai, bush pulls more FBI agents off Bin Laden family, FBI KNEW terrorists were using flight schools, etc, etc Bottom line is the war on terrorism is FAKE. Just like the war on DRUGS. It is used as a pretext to control people and raise untold amounts of cash! Look at the funding after Oklahoma City bombing - 5x budget increase. Look at funding after WTC - over 1.3 TRILLION in the next 5 years. The laws passed have very little to do with terrorists and much to do with setting up the POLICE STATE - GLOBAL GOVERNMENT where every one will be chipped and tracked.
