Team of University College of Dublin Suspects 65 Thousand of Illegal Downloading Every Week.

Almost sixty five thousand Irish broadband network users are suspected of illegal downloading weekly.

In the first extended research of the level of illegal downloading in the country, the Cybercrime Investigation Center of University College of Dublin managed to identify the IPs of over sixty four thousand users who were suspected of copyright infringement for last week only.


The full volume of illegal downloading might be considerably greater as investigators were trying to monitor only the top hundred most popular files that are downloaded through BitTorrent network which is one of the most effective ways of illegal downloading.
The chart includes such recent movies as ‘Invictus’, ‘Avatar’ or ‘The Princess and the Frog’ that haven’t had DVDs released yet; some popular albums like ‘The Fame Monster’ by Lady GaGa, Grey’s Anatomy TV series and also computer games such as BioShock.

Most people use BitTorrent mainly for illegal file sharing, for example sharing computer games, films and music through the peer-to-peer process, although it can be used as well for legal downloading.

In BitTorrent networks, an internet user can get an illegal copy of the Avatar movie and distribute it among other users each sending part of the movie to accelerate such a large file’s sending process.

Researcher of Cybercrime Investigation Center Alan Hannaway says that they could identify the potential illicit file-sharing users by creating software that is more accurate and faster than any of those used earlier for detecting illegal downloading.

They took their core research and made it so it could work on BitTorrent networks. They also had a system which could very rapidly identify with a firm accuracy level those peers showing such types of content at any moment of time. That was originally just a part of research. The team has never thought it could come into a commercial use, but they now have interest from companies which are losing great money due to illegal downloading.

The Cybercrime Investigation Center was founded in 2006 and became one of the first European places offering an academic approach to cybercrime and carrying out researches into it, and even has succeeded in receiving 4.5 million Euros from the European Commission to develop their work in every country of European Union.

messiahx4ever avatarSoon this will no longer be an issue because I buy music from INDEPENDENT bands that promote their own music via the internet. Sooner not later, movies will be done the same way because its MORE PROFITABLE THAN GOING THROUGH THE STUDIOS TO GET MOVIES. Why make less than $.05 or less per sale when you can have a much bigger chunk IF you produce it yourself? Movie studios, like record labels are on their way out too.
