Copyright Theft Introduction

There are a heap of websites which try and get round international copyright legislation by acting as “pointers” to copyright material, while not actually holding any on their servers.  Pirate  Bay, …and the rest.  Over the last year or two, a heap of copycat sites have sprung up that act as pointers to the “pointer” websites.  Anyone falling on these (usually Russian or Chinese hosted) sites, then has an interminable snakes and ladders of links to navigate to finally arrive at the wanted file.

I know all this because I keep a check on the location of all our Crawling Chaos material as it pops up.!

I’ve also run the gauntlet of potential malware and popups, during which process I came across a popup (again) which demonstrates the mind-thumping hypocrisy of the file-sharing websites.

FilesTube.com

I’d now like to share this particular piece of hypocritical pap with you!  This is on FilesTube.com, (who for the record, prefer to remain anonymous on the internet – see WHOIS here), although the same shite wordage pops up on all of them.  It’s not the band Crawling Chaos, but a track with the same words.  I could have used anything.  They claim to have >38 million files in their “index”.

J’Acuse!

And there we have it..

“Support Us” they plead.

They don’t say, “Support the people who made the music”.  Just, “support us”.

What a bunch of fucking hypocritical thieving bastards.
