##How to set up file synchronization using BitTorrent Sync (part 1) There are a number of services that offer file sharing/syncing via the "cloud". The free versions come with limitations on file size. As well, DropBox suffers from security issues in that encryption is done at the server meaning that any files you upload can be made available to the authorities by court order. SpiderOak encryption is done at the client which is more secure, but again, storage space is limited. In all cases, you are dependent on the availability of a server over which you have no control. You …

The University of Birmingham in the United Kingdom has been [researching](www.cs.bham.ac.uk/~tpc/Papers/P2PSecComm2012.pdf) how users of the hugely popular file-sharing BitTorrent peer-to-peer protocol are being monitored by those acting for copyright holders. What the researchers found surprised them, and may surprise those using BitTorrent to download pirated content: the average time it takes to log the IP address of an illegal file sharer is now less than three hours of the pirated content being made available. The researchers reckon that those downloading a single pirated movie, if it is in the top 100 downloads, will be monitored and their IP address logged. …

[ATTACH=RIGHT]16267[/ATTACH]Indie game developer Jeff Vogel (head of Spiderweb Soft.) wrote a thoughtful [URL="http://jeff-vogel.blogspot.com/2010/07/sometimes-its-ok-to-steal-my-games.html"]piece[/URL] on piracy on Wednesday, for his blog, [URL="http://jeff-vogel.blogspot.com/"]The Bottom Feeder[/URL]. As an industry veteran and most important of all, human, he explains why piracy isn't always a bad thing, and can often be downright justifiable given the right circumstances. No matter where you stand on the issue, he approaches the topic with a realistic mindset, rather than one guided by profits. He admits to feeling reluctant about writing the post, because game sales support his family. It puts food on the table, and clothes on his kid's …

[ATTACH=right]12439[/ATTACH] Leslie Stahl had a piece Sunday night on 60 minutes on the supposed impact of piracy on the movie industry. (You can watch it [URL="http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/10/30/60minutes/main5464994_page2.shtml?tag=contentMain;contentBody"]here[/URL].) Her piece was so slanted toward the Motion Picture Association of America, it was almost laughable (if it weren't so maddening). At one point, Stahl explained P2P networking using Bit Torrent in a way that made it sound like it was used exclusively for movie pirates and that it was the brand new gee-wizz technology--neither of which is true. In fact, many mainstream media companies are using P2P technology to deliver their content, and …

Following the introduction of the Intellectual Property Rights Enforcement Directive, better known as IPRED, which became law on Wednesday last week, the amount of Internet traffic has plummeted by as much as 40 percent according to the Netnod Internet Exchange which measures such things. Sweden has perhaps been best known, until now, for ABBA, Greta Garbo, tennis players who sell underwear and that chef on The Muppet Show. Bork Bork Bork. That, and being host to the Pirate Bay which is the largest and certainly the most notorious BitTorrent tracker on the face of the planet.

The Pirate Bay is, without doubt, a huge thorn in the side of the music and movies business. As the [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry3479.html"]worlds largest bittorrent tracker[/URL] with more than 3 million users and well over 20 million peers it constantly flips the bird at The Powers That Be. Even the threat of legal action does little to dampen the spirits of the owners who state that as no copyrighted material is stored by them is it "not possible" to hold them responsible for material being spread using the tracker. "Any complaints from copyright and/or lobby organizations will be ridiculed and published at …

Call it a kind of bigotry for the new millennium. The packets of peer-to-peer applications such as BitTorrent have become the target of throttling—even complete blockage—by Internet service providers on their networks. Do they have the right? The revelation comes from [URL=http://broadband.mpi-sws.mpg.de/transparency/results/]study results [/URL] published yesterday by Germany’s [URL=http://www.mpi-sws.org/]Max Plunk Institute of Software Systems[/URL] computer research group, which identified 13 ISPs engaged in the practices, including Comcast, Cox and seven others in the U.S. In response, Comcast said it monitors peek traffic times and slows peer-to-peer packets to give other services access. Data in the study contradicts that claim, showing …

Bram Cohen, the creator of bittorrent.com has signed a deal with the Movie Industry, that is hoped will reduce the number of pirated films, shared on the Internet, via the website. The deal means that BitTorrent must remove any links to pirated films. The deal between the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and BitTorrent is the latest in a line of moves to limit the illegal sharing of films via the Internet. Mr Cohen has raised $8.75m to turn the BitTorrent Inc into a commercial download service, similar to Napster, who made a likewise transition. "We are glad that …
