A bill introduced in the US Senate on Monday would give US law enforcement authorities more tools to crack down on websites engaged in piracy of movies, television shows and music.

The Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act has received support from both parties and was introduced by Senator Patrick Leahy, a Democrat from Vermont, and Senator Orrin Hatch, a Republican from Utah.

The bill will give the Justice Department the "tools to track and shut down websites devoted to providing access to unauthorized downloads, streaming or sale of copyrighted content and counterfeit goods," Leahy's office said.

The illegal products offered by websites, many of which are based outside of the United States, range from movies, television shows and music to pharmaceuticals and consumer products, it said in a statement.

"Each year, online piracy and the sale of counterfeit goods cost American businesses billions of dollars, and result in hundreds of thousands of lost jobs," Leahy said.

"In today's global economy the Internet has become the glue of international commerce -- connecting consumers with a wide-array of products and services worldwide," Hatch said. "But it's also become a tool for online thieves to sell counterfeit and pirated goods, making hundreds of millions of dollars off of stolen American intellectual property.

"This legislation is critical to our continued fight against online piracy and counterfeiting," Hatch said.

The bill gives the Justice Department an expedited process for cracking down on websites engaged in piracy including having a court issue an order against a domain name that makes pirated goods available.

In May, the Congressional International Anti-Piracy Caucus condemned Canada, China, Mexico, Russia and Spain for failing to crack down on Web piracy and said theft of intellectual property in those countries was at "alarming levels."

The bipartisan caucus also released what it called a "list of notorious offenders" -- websites involved in making available unauthorized copies of the works of US creators.

The websites singled out by the caucus, made up of 70 members of the Senate and House of Representatives, were China's Baidu, Canada's isoHunt, Ukraine's MP3fiesta, Sweden's Pirate Bay, Germany's Rapidshare and Luxembourg's RMX4U.

Intellectual property has become almost entirely worthless.

Did someone mean to say outsourcing? I think someone meant to say outsourcing.

piratebay/isohunt FUCK YEAH
Out of your jurisdiction, huh FBI. u mad?
Also, we have freenet, which is already used to transfer hundreds of gigs of CP a day. No reason we can't use it to get other data too.
You try so hard. It must be frustrating to no end.

Stop egging them on! WE'RE AT THE BRINK HERE.

They ain't gonna do shit.
Some of us are old enough to remember the DMCA, and the shitstorm it caused, especially over usenet.
Turns out, it became just a minor nuisance. Now the only people that use the DMCA are butthurt furries/artists.

They've already targeted specific sites like my beloved Rapidshare! They're going to block the domain for US users and put up a NSA seal on the site saying it's closed access for us because of pirating or whatever. The end is near!

First off, Rapidshare? Really? Fucking christ, get with the program.
Mediafire is superior is all ways.
Two, DDL is a pox, BECAUSE it's so open.
Torrents still exist because it's actually not that easy to kill off a torrent, and find the seeders, despite what people might tell you.
There will always be a place to get stuff. Freenet is the frontier of the internet, and it's fast. Learn about Frost, learn to love it.

I am with it! I have over 3tb of content thanks to rapidshare. Take a look at Avax Home or numerous blogs to see what a big stake that service has. Mediafire is nice when it's available.

I already know they stopped some sights with that NSA seal and a blank explanation so I'm freaking out.

enjoy Obama's America

Like usual they don't have a clue about economic reality, but you think we take our money that we would have spent on pirated goods, and then BURN IT?

It's spent somewhere else on more useful productive things, physical goods perhaps.

Music and movies and other worthless information bullshit SHOULD be pirated because the industries are far too large.

But Bruce Willis needs a new island!

Mick Jagger wants another 100 acres to park his new vintage rolls royces and sports cars!

>implying it's actors and not filthy execs that are causing the problem

typical liberal thought process, how dare people find more success in life then me!!

Well, if "piracy" was causing them to be poor, I could feel sorry, but they make literally hundreds of billions a year, even after the lost sales to piracy.
So they have no moral, or appreciable right to act like assholes to those of us that can't afford to buy everything.

>even after the lost sales to piracy.
lol piracy doesn't cause lost sales, lern 2 economics.

>but they make literally hundreds of billions a year,
Companies are not people, and what they make doesn't matter in this argument.

how the fuck do I use this?

>lol people getting free copies of stuff doesn't dissuade them from buying a legit copy too


People getting free information and music and movies allows them to enjoy themselves at little cost, meanwhile are able to spend their money on bettering themselves.

Piracy = enrichment of our population. Income is finite, distributing cultural products for free benefits everyone, except of course the pointless middle man involved in the jew media music industry, and millionaire celebrities.

Download freenet, from
Set it up as NORMAL/NORMAL/NORMAL security wise.
NEVER trust darknet.
Then get Frost, which is a java GUI client used to access the boards and messages on Freenet.
Run Frost by clicking the .bat batch file. It should start up and access Freenet. You have to have Freenet running in order to use Frost.
It is pretty fast for me, but then again, I don't touch CP with a ten foot pole. No porn is worth prison time and registering as a sex offender over.
