Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
A Russian company has developed software it says can disrupt and prevent people from downloading pirated content.
Pirate Pay has been backed by Microsoft and has so far worked with Walt Disney Studios and Sony Pictures to stop "thousands" of downloads.
The tool poses as real bit torrent users but then "confuses" peer-to-peer networks, causing disconnections.
Last month, the British Phonographic Industry won a court battle to force UK internet service providers to block its customers from accessing high-profile piracy site The Pirate Bay.
It sounds to me like a supposedly legitimate denial of service system.
According to the article Microsoft and the courts are working together to block your internet access? Are you a bad guy?
The only time you should worry is if you were DOWNLOADING an illegal copy of MS windows or a Disney movie
