Zank Frappa 11 Years ago torrentfreak were reporting on Piratebay.org's demise, didn't happen.

https://torrentfreak.com/?s=piratebay.org

Factually, this is a whack-a-mole game that has no winner beyond law firms and costs consumers of original content pennies per month.

Bevfan, you may want to boycott Digital Home Canada as this forum is sponsored by VPN Authority, a company that makes it easier to pirate content anonymously.

P.S. I find it hilarious that VPNAuthority.com is blocked by my browser due to HTML:Script-inf, Who checks ads here?????

Heck, many of their member countries have a ludicrous "panorama copyright", meaning you can't take and publish a picture for commercial purposes of a public place without obtaining a license.
It is not only EU that complains about luck of anti-piracy laws in Canada. US has complained about it for years and has placed Canada many times on the watch list of 10 countries that fail to deter piracy.

I hope they don't come after me for quoting the article. I seems like that's what copyright holders want to be able to do.

I agree it may not be as effective but it could create headaches for pirates.
More effective way would be to follow in Dish Network’s or others footsteps.

metalhawk Yep. That's a game of whack-a-mole that the big companies can't win. The solution is to offer a product that people want at a price people want to pay. We were well on the way with Netflix, Prime and Crave (or Hulu in the US) but greed has derailed this at the moment (but that's a discussion for another thread).

It is not useless as it creates extra work and expense for the pirates. If it does not curb piracy in Canada then I am pretty sure they will ask courts to allow telcos to implement other counter measures. It could be going after IPTV service providers or VPN’s

These days, the costs (new domain name, maybe switch servers) are minuscule compared to the amount of money those shady companies are making. And it's just the cost of doing business.

And I guess I didn't word it properly above. Obviously they aren't blocked yet, but within 24 hours they were already ready to go under a new name and domain name.

As I said, useless.

NeilN Which is good, and there should be more of these, as long as the process is in no way automated.

bev fan They were recommending apps at Canada Computers that don’t need Kodi to watch movies and shows. Some of those apps have similar interface to Netflix.
