Preliminary injunction against EliteBits.org
yes then it happened again in Denmark last year, said agp which is the same as in the MPAA know they said they would not hunt down pirates but anyway a few days ago got an owner of a site visit by AGP.'s is what he had to say how it perished = Preliminary injunction against EliteBits.org
So a little over 7 in the morning, knocked on my door, and when I opened I was greeted by three sets by Johan Schlüter and a bailiff from the court which has come to secure evidence against participation / distribution of copyright protected material.
I get so ordered not to use my phone until they are gone, because I like this could destroy the evidence.
They throw a whole stack of papier in my hand, with screenshots from EliteBits.org and account transcripts and a court order.
Then he summons from the court bailiff a lawyer to me, and this is then Attorney Benny Thomson from my hometown.
They tell me that they have come up to me, via the bank account
Evidence collection starts with me being asked to turn on my computer, which I do and I'm asked to enter EliteBits.org where they only take screenshot of my profile and screenshot of the status bar ( "Welcome, (Owner) ").
Then they begin to take screenshots of all staff members' profile, and moves on to the Top10, where they first take screenshot of the Top 10 and Top 10 Uploaders Downloaders. This seems the obvious is not enough, then expand Top 10 Uploaders to Top 50th
Here are being taken screenshots of all profiles and Uploaded Torrents. They also find all users who have donated through bank transfer, and take screenshot of these users' profiles.
They also take two torrents, one DVD and one CD, and takes screenshots of infohashen and nfo files.
They wonder into a larger user database, but this I say that I can not give them and that they must turn to netdirekt if they want to raid server.
When they took it they came after throwing all the screenshots to a USB pen.
Now they begin to look at what I have touched on above my office and take all non-originals, for direct distruering. So they will not check any of it through.
Then they take their things and go.
My lawyer was then seated a little bit and we talked the matter over quickly, and I told him the basics behind the page.
His assessment is that there are no teams in a bug report. Claims against me, but that the injunction against closing EliteBits.org possible ....

|Yes its getting more serious day by day. As the infrastructure of the bit torrents sites gets more complex the opening of ourselves to mass prosecution is getting more and more likely every day.|
We have to stand up and realize that one day any of us in any country may get a knock on our door asking us to produce our computers into evidence that may one day land us in jail or with hefty fines.
I can only speak for myself when I say that I do not burn my copies on a PC for watching, i use an external HD for my data transfers and stream to a external media player that keeps no data. I also every few months destroy my personal HD through violent means and re-install windows. I'm a small fry but feel its my obligation to protect myself and others.

|Ya I do, HDs are not expensive anymore. My computer is old '05. To me its worth the 40-50 bucks for a new small HD for my OS. It may seem over the top, but I guess I'm paranoid.|
|As long as your not buying 10 TB drives i would recommend destroying them.|
|I am a small time kinda guy....and this kinda sorta even makes me a bit nervous.|

|if you read this forum post http://extratorrent.com/forum/topic/1580/anti-piracy+group+throws+in+the+towel+pirates+wal.html its more comming down to thta they use every dirty trick in the book they can. last year they said we wont hunt down pirats anymore|
|for some time now i figured this would start to happen. Reminds me of the late 80's and early 90's here in the US. its getting right back to the way it was...|
Oh well... i guess i will go back to the way i used to store data, with multiple layers of encryption. using storage-in-storage methods. so the only way they could get my data is with a crap load of dedicated-systems cracking the 40+ 4096k-encrypted sub-filesystems...
its a pain to set up, but its better than the possible end-result otherwise...
(Natas: theres a easier way... store them on SD cards, and put them someplace safe. as backups, then all you have to do is, wipe youre external clean when youre done, and then just copy the movie/app from it when you need it. just dont erase it, or it may lead to problems. dont forget, encryption. its not fool-proof, but it makes it significantly more difficult at any rate, and the more layers of encryption, means even longer time to decrypt it. thus meaning giving you time to figure out a result...
Formatting does not mean the data is gone from the platter, its still there until that sector is over-written)
