I'm sure that most of you are aware of the suprnova.org shutdown. A tragic event, but hobby-ists just can't beat the multinationals. Sites are vulnerable for attacks...

Well anyways the Suprnova team have a new venture called 'Exeem'. It's supposed to be bigger better and faster than Bittorrent and eMule. I've added the interview to my DC++ directory. It's in the root under "Exeem_Interview". If you're not on the hub, it can also be downloaded from www.suprnova.org. The interview is taken from suprnova radio and starts off with a bit of music.

Thought you lot might be interested in such a new project. :)

Nah, they're down too. All the large Bittorrent sites have been going offline the last couple of weeks. The industry is winning this fight.

Just as I start bittorrenting. Bollocks.

I hate the music label giants for so many reasons. This is a new one to the list. I just hope they only crack down on sharing of official material...

Yeah - pirating official stuff should be stopped or at least majorly curbed. But a lot of bootleg stuff can't be bought (or at least, the money just goes to asshole collectors).

The real problem is that people use the same programs to share rare stuff as they do commercial stuff. So if you take down something like Suprnova, you've stopped people pirated episodes of Frasier, but no one can get the really rare things that aren't available anymore.

Now that you mention it... How illegal is sharing/downloading (f.e.) Frasier episodes anyway? When I record a Frasier episode from tv. Is that illegal? Or does it get illegal when I burn it on a VCD and archive it? If not, can I lend it to other people? (There aren't any disclaimers at the beginning of tv programs.) If I'm allowed to lend it out, am I allowed to upload such a TV-rip?

I found two excellent bit torrent sites:

Hypertorrent
http://www.hypertorrent.com

The Pirate Bay (Swedish)
http://trackerwww.prq.to

I think the Pirate Bay has more torrents than Suprnova had, and Hypertorrent has about the same amount as Suprnova had.

Fraiser episodes? hmmm....my understanding/belief is that you're fine all the way through burning it onto a VCD, and even lending it to a friend. (that is, if you're lending, rather than just simply burning a second for your buddy) if, however, a second copy ever pops up from your primary (i.e. you burn a copy for your buddy; you post it online for download by anyone; you loan your only copy to your friend, who then makes a copy without your knowledge; or even if you just make a second copy for yourself), you've just violated copyright law in some territories, and personal ethics in most.
