Who needs your copyrighted material? Open Source/GNU/Creative Commons/Public Domain are gaining so much ground you really don't even need to pirate anymore. While Big Digital tries to keep you only on their dimension of their product or elsewhere, a smart person can get all of the functionality of programs in easy-to-use, free projects. Now where you must stay on their dimension, because a label contains and artist/band you love, that's the fault of the artist. If you're resourceful, you can gain the ability to record, mix, master, create hard copies, and publicize for little to no cost compared to the record label giants. Hell, if you're really into low-lost production you can get a raspberry pi running ubuntu and connect it to a removable hard drive. Suffice it to say, if you are willing to learn and adapt, you can produce things for fractions or almost none of the cost.

So can some kind, intelligent, doubtless good-looking person explain to me how I go about using a proxy to hide behind?

Mr Guy: The fight is about a delivery model that went obsolete trying to prove they weren't. It's like milk men suing you for sharing a gallon of milk with your neighbors, because they only make money on the milk they deliver, then trying to convince the public it's because we're taking advantage of cows.


You'd think the business people would be more savvy than that, though.

I sure hope Comcast doesn't assume torrent + video file content = copyright infringement. Torrents are popular because they are the best way to distribute any huge file, legal or not.
