What were they charged with? What was the evidence? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Edibobb (talk • contribs) 16:54, 6 October 2007 (UTC)
I would also like to point out that in the U.S., you don't go to prison for 5 months. Prison sentences have to be over a year, otherwise you go to jail. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 22:02, 30 January 2010 (UTC)
"Like previous actions against BitTorrent sites such as LokiTorrent, the authorities obtained server logs of people who had been downloading and uploading through the site's BitTorrent tracker. As of July 12, 2005, there has been no action taken against the vast majority of normal members on LokiTorrent or EliteTorrents"
I think this statement is misleading because it implies that the regular users of BitTorrent can be tracked using the server logs. Can somebody confirm or deny this? I've never used BitTorrent, but from what I read about it I assumed that it gives a good deal of anonymity to users. --188.8.131.52 13:40, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
Wrong. If they wanted to know about an average-joe user downloading or uploading material on the website, it wouldn't be difficult to figure it out. What everyone on the website downloads gets put onto the server, because it's displayed on the website for each individual to see.
but how if I get the BitTorrent site from another site?
Takedown? Is this the correct word? Sounds very slang-y to me..
There are a number of closely-related definitions of "takedown" which are close to the described usage: a wrestling/martial arts move that accomplishes forcing one's opponent to the floor; something that can be taken down; a mechanism within that something that can be taken down. The correct term is actually "take down," a discrepancy that is completely worthwhile and basis for a lawsuit against Wikipedia. :P ΛιtcΘlοг-Шιlε 00:16, 28 October 2006 (UTC)
Basis for a lawsuit? How? Why in the world would somebody sue wikipedia over a word that may be missing a space? Do you actually think a judge will go foward with this? Are you a lawyer? Lets not unneccessarily throw the word "lawsuit" around. It scares people. In any case, [American Heritage http://www.bartleby.com/61/9/T0020900.html] says that a takedown is "The mechanism that allows an article or apparatus to be easily taken down". I think that applies here, but if you feel strongly about it, go ahead and change it. Copysan 09:31, 31 October 2006 (UTC)
