I work at a university and we recieved an email from Symantec stating there is copyrighted material being distributed. (the standard letter)

and no, i am not going to post a copy of the letter (secuirty and privacy reasons).

The client distributing this was from the BitTorrent network.

Are they drifting from kazaa and going to bit torrent?

any info would be appreciated.

I would hate the bit torrent network to go the way of kazaa (where would i get the new distros of linix from??) <wink wink>

ive done research myself and worked with some of the guys over at PeerGuardian and i can tell you with 100% confidence that YES BT is being tracked just as heavily as kazaa and emule and dc++ and all the others.

Symentec has a contract with Akamai and sections of the RIAA to do p2p scanning and also it monitors its own products.
Akamai is huge its a very hard network to track and know whats good and whats bad, the same for APNIC and LAPNIC.
but i can telly ou since the Euro market passes the copywrite laws, there has been more activity coming out of the NTL Network Management Center than i have seen from any USA network/isp.

i have PERSONALLY logged MS them selves tracking xbox games.
yes you read that right, someone or some people from M$ are hiding in xbox torrents.

so if your worried about that then know your fears are founded.

last weekend aome of you may know and most may not, there was a big campaign against DC++ and several divisions of the RIAA and other anti p2p groups were in full force in the DC++ hubs checking people shares for illegal items.

get a firewall, or peer guardian., hit the PG forums and keep the list updated and you will have more of a chance to block these people.
personally i use Zone Alarm to add the IP's from the anti p2p lists. its more efficient and just blocks everything.

something to think about.

*final thought*
dont be a pirate and do illegal things and you wont have to worry about it.
im not a fan of the anti p2p movement. but i will at least buy games and programs.
(oh yeah i spent mega bucks for XP and a shit load of pc games but i spent more on renting, cuz its a helluva lot cheaper then buying a shitty game)
