Feds bite BitTorrent

Government shuts down Web site used to steal "Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith."
May 25, 2005: 4:44 PM EDT

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Federal agents launched a crackdown Wednesday on users of a popular new technology used to steal the latest "Star Wars" movie and other large data files, according to immigration officials.

The campaign was described by government officials as the first-ever criminal action against operators of the file-sharing program known as BitTorrent.

BitTorrent, described as Hollywood's version of the Napster scourge that rocked the music industry several years ago, has been used by Internet users to download massive files, such as movies and video games, quickly and far more easily than they could in the past.


BitTorrent captured headlines last week when it was revealed that "Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith" was available for free online.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced in a statement a crackdown against top members of a file-sharing network that is based on BitTorrent and calls itself Elite Torrents.

Government agents said the onslaught included 10 search warrants and the shut down of a central Web site used to coordinate all file-sharing activity on the Elite Torrents network.

That Web site, Elitetorrents.org, had a selection of copyrighted works that government officials described as "virtually unlimited."

The sixth and final installment of the "Star Wars" franchise was available for downloading on Elitetorrents.org more than six hours before it was released on theaters Thursday after midnight, according to the government statement.

Within 24 hours, more than 10,000 copies of the "Star Wars" film had been swiped.

I don't believe it is possible to stop the pirating of movies, music, and software. This is an inevitability that comes with the technology. Even now, there are hundreds of places you can get a copy of Star Wars Episode 3 and many other illegal things.

With every increment in copy-protection, people develop products to break this protection. It's a never-ending cycle.

PS: I do not do anything illegal online Smile

Whats incredible is that with all the pirating going on and increasing as people get higher speed connections, I still dont see George Lucas or any other Celebrity hurting for cash. All in the movie buisness still seem to be doing quite well. All pirating is doing is saving the little guy a couple more dollars while the movie giants might have to settle for the 14.5 Million Dollar mansion instead of the 14.6 one. BOO HOO Crying

I remember reading a report that said the year after they shut down Napster (or Kazaa, can't remember), record revenues actually went DOWN. The only thing that has helped the record industry is iTnes and their ilk with the overpriced buck-a-download.
