I will admit to using it. It was the only tracker that enabled me to get the proper English-subtitled version of the French TV series, Braquo. A series that got good buzz from the Internet. A series that is not going to air in the United States. No one lost money from my “pirating” it. I couldn’t have paid for it even if I wanted to!
With sites like this and the lockers going down, the Revenge Effect is going to be to divide people into those who can be trusted and those who can’t be. This is going to solidify and harden the resistance of the Internet to those who claim to protect intellectual property. More will be stolen just out of spite.
And in the end, those who oppose the Internet are going to lose anyway.
Time is on the side of the Internet.
The Internet has changed the way people view property and especially outdated “territorial rights”. The children raised on that ethic will become older. And they will enter politics and they will vote and they will change everything.
All of you dinosaurs, you’re already on your way to extinction.
Good riddance to the lot of you.
