[News] Intellectual Monopolies Fake Evidence

Anti-Pirates Try to Nail The Pirate Bay with Faked Evidence

,----[ Quote ]
| In August, Dutch anti-piracy outfit 
| BREIN won its case against The Pirate 
| Bay, and the court ordered the 
| defendants to block access to Dutch 
| visitors. The case was appealed today 
| and rightly so. It appears that the 
| evidence presented by BREIN was faked in 
| an attempt to mislead the court.

Falsified Documents Against The Pirate Bay


They don't care. They already decide the trial's outcome before it's even started, by labelling others
as evil (or "pirates"). If they fabricate evidence, they'll see it as acceptable.

Music piracy costs money; does fighting it cost more?

| The major music labels say that they stand to lose
| Â200 million this year in the UK alone thanks to
| Internet file-sharing. But one of the country's
| biggest ISPs is now slinging around some huge numbers
| of its own, saying it will actually cost ISPs Â365
| million a year to adopt "three strikes" rules meant
| to stem piracy.


A crowd-sourced translation of The Lost Symbol: is this copyright infringement?

,----[ Quote ]
| His last book, The Da Vinci Code, was wildly popular
| in China and propelled translations of his earlier
| novels onto bestseller lists as well. The latest
| thriller, which follows the further adventures of
| intrepid symbologist Robert Langdon, should sell well
| over here too.
| Once it's translated, that is. People's Literature
| Publishing House expects a Chinese edition to be on
| shelves sometime in 2010.


The Pirate Bay Taken Offline By Swedish Authorities (Updated)
