While the RIAA promised to give up on lawsuits targeting individual BitTorrent users, some other companies have followed its example. In fact, there are lots of ways to detect peer-to-peer users and collect evidence against them for use in lawsuits. To use the simplest one you will only need a BitTorrent client. The media is quick to cover more exotic ways subscribers could be tracked or monitored in the past, although most of them just don’t work. However, the lawsuits that were abandoned by the music industry by the reason of being bad for business have been quickly adopted by some other groups of lawyers.
Actually, there’s usually a lot of misinformation about the companies or agencies able to track users, and ways they do it. Some people think that industry outfits or some companies are able to search and send out warning letters just at random, but the reality is that the investigator has to be authorized, otherwise they could be accused of copyright infringement themselves.
At the same time there’s also much confusion about the way evidence can be collected, because usually people believe the only way it can be collected is from corporate networks. Private trackers are also usually believed to be safe as investigators aren’t able to share and so would be banned for the ratio. Well, many of all these beliefs are untrue and even able to make it easier to collect evidence.
In fact, the simplest way to do it is to collect data from trackers. That’s the easiest and quickest way, but as it was revealed a couple years ago, it may be inaccurate. Then, the next way providing lots of information is to join a swarm and just monitor. Although some people think the applications doing this will be modified and therefore behave differently, it’s untrue as well. The clients actually don’t have to be monitored at all.
Really, all that is required for a lawsuit is nothing more than standard communication information. But it’s critical to understand that such information is just evidence of activity, but not necessarily evidence of infringement.
Although it can’t be testified that the simplest method described above is employed by most of the companies, it is still quite possible. The very usual way to behave for the law firms is to sell the simplest methods as a very high priced service, regardless of the fact that it causes many false accusations and scandals.

|Sort of like political speech that states, "Believe in Change" but really means "Be(lie)ve in Change" that will never see the light of day? I know it has nothing to do with truth or honor, it is solely about the absurd need for greed. I have learned some great truths in my life time and I know whom I can trust and those I can't. As far as these companies go, they need to learn to crawl before they walk and right now, they can't even sit up on their own.|

|@messiahx4ever HEYYY Bill Gates! You will NEVER come even Close to the MORALS President Barack Obama has!|
|lol StickIt...what do you know about Obama? Anything?|
|As a matter of fact...list me some of his great accomplishments. I'm sure it will go on for miles...|
|umm I'm still waiting for anyone to put together a list of all the great things he has done. I can put together a good size list of all the bad things...|
|4GET - since you don't live in the "states" STFU...|
I find allot of Europeans like OBAMA; why? I don't know or care since these people don't live in the "states" and have to put up with all the crap he has done.
I am not a Bush 1 and 2/Clinton, etc. fan; all these people have done is destroy the "states".
OBAMA has put the "states" Trillions of dollars into the budget hole; far far more than even bush did in his eight years in office.
The Europeans farted out what is called the "EURO" fiat money ( money of no value; money created from nothing; money pulled out of greedy corrupt bankers asses ). The " European Group - countries have done their damnest to destroy the "states" economy". Look at when the dollar was deflating due to the housing and derivative crash? Everybody started to go for the Euro; except the Euro is in the toilet and the handle has been pulled. Now everybody is running from the Euro and going back to the Dollar.
OBAMA doing great as you claim? Tell that to EIGHT MILLION PEOPLE WITH OUT WORK..
