The Russian company, specializing in anti-piracy software, recently signed an agreement with the Association of TV and movie producers to create a technology for fighting online piracy in the torrent networks. The promises have been made that by September 2011 they will be able to block access to free films, music and software that were uploaded illegally to the P2P networks. The company is planning to paralyze distribution plan of the pirates using fake torrent clients. However, the industry experts believe that the fans of the free flow of information will manage to bypass the restrictions.
The project titled “Pirate Pay” (sound familiar?) is expected to release a commercial product that will allow copyright holders to block the illegal distribution of their own content in BitTorrent networks, or set their own prices for downloading. The project was first mentioned in mid-2010, and is considered to be unique in world practice. Indeed, 5 months ago, the software company that started the project even received a grant of $100.000 from Microsoft.
According to the company’s CEO, the software in question has already interested some Russian and foreign copyright owners. Unlike other existing models of fighting online piracy, involving tracking, prosecution and punishment of the distributors of infringing content, Pirate Pay is focused on "preventive blocking" of unauthorized content that is already circulating online.
The technology will work the following way: a special set of software will allow the copyright holder to block access to their own movie or music by creating of a large number of "fake" members of file-sharing network, who will “communicate” with real members and send them links to download the same content but legally. In other words, it will be spam. At the same time, the software will also help rights holders to enter into dialogue with the tracker operators offering to cooperate in legal content distribution.
Meanwhile, little will change for ordinary users – the only new thing they will see is a button “pay” located next to the torrent file. Unfortunately, they won’t be able to download the desired content without clicking on the button and paying.
The blocking service will cost $10,000 a week while the movie is still in the theaters. As for the legalizing content, the software developers will charge about 15% of the generated revenues. Meanwhile, it is unknown how much the ordinary user will have to pay for downloading a fresh blockbuster.

Really this will work? Not likely since there is technology with bit torrents to weed out fake torrents..
|And only get torrent from reputed/verified/trusted uploaders|

|oh very bad news.. I can't see movies for free now.. so sad|
|you can, just do what 2 said, more for for the mods and higher for this site to weed out the spamming fake garabe|
|they already make fake torrents with unrealistic amounts of seeders.|
anyone that sees those and has any sense, knows what they are.
and the mpaa, etc are going to pay $10,000 a week while the movie is in the theaters and 15% of the revenue? thats more than the highest priced actors get. then that means the price of tickets will go up too.
so they will alienate more people and make more people search online for free movies than pay their unrealistic prices.
whoever comes up with these ideas must be a total idiot. must be some stupid american manager that went to a 2 day seminar, that teaches things that never work in real life. like usual.

Once again sorry if my comments seem as tho attacking any usa person that is not what im going to partition about its mereley about the freedom to choose and the freedom of out telecomincation industry to have its own poilcys and allow its customers to choose to be illegal or not .. i hold nothing nor hatred in anyway to the population of the usa|

|hahahaha what a joke! Looks like the corporations are willing to risk loosing money. i can see someone making a program to block/filter the 'fake' content! probably by the same guy/cmopany who have released this software. if it was German/Korean i would have been convinced, but Russian. Well done Vladimir, you've got yourself Gallons of vodka coming yourway!!|
|First, sorry about my lousy language, my native language is not english.|
Well, fighting for freedom of whatever is always a good idea. But to commenting about 1shadowwolf's saying that don't blame the americans, i must say that who's to blame for the next economical crise over the world? Back to business. Of course the major corporations all over the world wants to cut off this illegal file sharing, which is by the way, in my opinion, only expression of free use of your once paid materials. Doesn't matter in what type of articles one is sharing to another. To be little sarcastic, i'm wondering, when it's gonna be illegal to lend a car to your friend? Or, going little further... You go to the shop, or store, or whatever. You're buying some eggs, sugar, flours and maybe a jar of jam. You go to your home, and from these ingredients, you bake some cakes. Now, it's said to be illegal, to change any kind of someone elses formula of doing something, or make copies of it. Are you now a notorious criminal, if you give those cakes to someone else? After all, those cakes are actually copies of someone elses cakes. Specially if you've used someone elses recipe, to make those cakes? And is there any way that seems to be righteous, to anyone to stop you doing, whatever you're doing. Specially from another country? Got my point?
Come on, american economical and political system do think, that they are the world police force, that can, and must, put their fingers on every other countries soup. But, and this is a big but, do not blame a single american, blame the american system. And there comes funny part. What do, or can, an averige american citizen do? just zilch, nothing.
It's those giant corporations, that runs america. Not american citizens, not anymore. Corporation managers are desperate to keep stockholders satisfied, so they must put up these actions, to keep their own jobs. Simple, actually. This sw isn't gonna change things so much. Maybe little harder for someone, who's new in filesharing. But we all are happy to help, not to criticize newbies, right?

|Yes I agree with Foxzone51, America with their bad Economic policies and all the money they borrowed from world bank and not paid back are affecting the world.|
If they want to be world controllers then they have to do it with their own money.
I think its good that terrorists attack america, atleast someone have balls to kick them where they deserve.
They are all overfed and fat,, its time they start starving like some other countries affected by their policies...
|@iboffin : Those balls that got kicked by the terrorists weren't even the people responsible for your poverty stricken ass. As a matter of fact, it blew up in the dumbass terrorist's faces (and yours) by giving more reason for Governmental and Corporate America to come elsewhere and make things worse. Most Americans could care less about what "you" are doing there, and as other posters have said, "we" rarely if ever have any say so in the first place. Half (or more) of the time its with the help of YOUR own corrupted governments that we end up diapering your asses. "I" didnt borrow shat from anyone, and I certainly wont be paying anyone back either.|
You sure aren't afraid to enjoy the technological benefits coming out of development in the US though are you? You like the movies, but hate the people making them right. Youre making a ton of sense.
As for the topic, all they will manage is snagging $ from those stupid enough to buy into the story that they can stop it.

|# ancientwolfgr ,, the balls which were kicked have now thrown 'your' country in financial turmoil.. i mean you ot are looking to the chinese to bail yourselves out.. what a farce..|
Donno if the terrorist was a dumbass, had you lot runnin for cover and madly attacking any random country.. i mean Bush n Co were a prime example of what americn ideology for a better future meant.
Your plastic movies, i couldn't care worse, to be honest they are shite.
And remember, when you wake up every morning, that you gave the world shit.
you wiped out the 'real' americans, and you're just a bunch of european settlers..
--The 'ill not pay back sh1t' is why you lot are up sh1t creek without a paddle

|lol cant block the cccp....|
|@iboffin: I'm Native American. I dont pay taxes, so I don't borrow. As for financial turmoil, I never noticed. You got 1 thing right though- someone is eating the shit, and it aint me.|
|im sorry, but the governments dont control the economys in no contries, The economies is controlled by the people, its they who choose to buy, or not to buy.|
