Hi all, I have spent a long time on this problem and trawled all the forums. Much of the discussion is old. I have two Windows 8 computers, set up for file sharing, but the process is not exactly even, perhaps becuase the desktop is a private computer and the laptop is a work one, or more likely because there is something wrong with the permissions on the desktop. That would be easy to tease out if someone knew about it. I have looked at all the links, and tried numerous solutions, though. On the laptop, I can open the …

is there a possibility that a prpgram can be written to restrict file sharing(music) from phone to phone (bluetooth) or from laptop to CD (burning)

I have 1 desktop comp at home running xp pro. Then I have 3 laptops. 1 with 7, 1 with xp pro and 1 with vista. I was always able to access the desktop from all the laptops until.... The desktop was not allowing me to upgrade to internet explorer 8. When I searched for a solution on microsoft's website, they suggested using a fixit or whatever. It had something to do with security settings. I ran the fixit thingy and then I was able to successfully install ie8. But I was unable to access anything on the desktop from …

Hi all, Our small business is currently using an online file server for our file sharing needs. Recently, there have been complaints around the office about the server. In particular, the problem people have the biggest issue with is file linking. MS Excel links don't work for files on the server (where you link cells in one worksheet file to automatically update based on cells in another worksheet). After speaking with customer support, the service told me that we should get a NAS device and set it up to work with their file backup. I'm fine with the idea of …

How do most NAS drives deal with multiple users opening/editing a file at once?

This is odd, to my thinking. The founder and owner of the UK file sharing peer to peer site Oink (great name) has been acquitted of conspiracy to defraud. In spite of earning $18,000 per month from people downloading from the site because people would send donations in order to keep it going, the owner - one Alan Ellis - assured the court he had no intention to defraud copyright holders. He was creating a music sharing community, is all. Maybe when he started in 2004 he had the impression that only people who owned the rights to the music …

When singer Lily Allen posted a passionate plea for people to stop illegally sharing music files, and started a dedicated blog where fellow pop stars could voice their concerns over the 'theft' of their work, you might have been forgiven for thinking it would just turn into the usual bunch of rich kids moaning about how unfair it was that they couldn't buy a second Ferrari this year. However, it quickly got much more interesting than that, thanks to a large dose of double standards on the part of Allen herself. The trouble with setting yourself up as some kind …

This is just odd, for too many reasons. [URL="http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/8177285.stm"]A file sharer has been fined $675,000 for downloading illegal music[/URL]. He is a student. People have offered him money because they think it's an unreasonable amount to pay. He has turned them down. Why do I think this is odd? Well, one by one: the amount is indeed a ridiculous amount to expect a student to pay. Yes, of course he knew what he was doing was illegal and the people with the rights to the music to which he's helped himself have some sort of recourse. But twice the price …

What happens if you get caught out sharing copyright music or video online? If you live in Hull, in the north of the UK, the answer will probably surprise you. At the same time that most Internet Service Providers are applauding the recent [URL="http://www.itwire.com/content/view/22936/53/"]Digital Britain report[/URL] from the government which argued against the music industry 'three strikes' approach admitting this was not the government's preferred option, the only broadband ISP in Hull (yes really) has decided that even a [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry2857.html"]three strikes option[/URL] is too lenient. If you want to get a broadband Internet connection in Hull then you have to …

It might seem like something of an odd question, unless your idea of a good night in is a box of popcorn and a copy of some dodgy DVD featuring a Captain Jack lookalike doing unmentionable things to his crew. Yet the answer is that these two things, the illegal file-sharing we commonly refer to as piracy and the porn business, have loads more in common than you might imagine. For starters, both are hugely popular online. Pornography has traditionally been something of a driver of e-commerce innovation. After all, most pornographers are in the business for profit rather than …

The Pirate Bay is a website which claims to be the biggest BitTorrent tracker on the planet. So big, it seems, that it is even considering pitching for an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records. Certainly, putting politics and legal arguments aside for a moment, there is no doubting that popularity. The Pirate Bay regularly manages to be listed around the 100 to 125 mark when it comes to sites with most traffic by services such as Alexa. Not surprising when so many of our children are proud pirates, [URL="http://www.itwire.com/content/view/19548/53/"]according to Microsoft[/URL]. But this latest play is as …

Italian Internet Service Providers have been ordered to block access to the Pirate Bay file-sharing Bit Torrent tracker site in Sweden by a judge in the Northern Italian town of Bergamo. This is the same judge, who has not been named, which only last month closed a leading Bit Torrent site in Italy and is due to hear charges against three of its administrators. Colonel Alessandro Nencini of the Italian police squad specialising in finance matters is currently investigating a total of four people who stand accused of being administrators of Pirate Bay and breaking copyright laws in Italy. The …

Well, OK, they have agreed to throttle the bandwidth of those accounts found to be indulging in the illegal downloading of music via file-sharing networks if their customers do not take heed of a warning letter or two. The [URL="http://www.bpi.co.uk/"]BPI[/URL] (formerly known as British Phonographic Industry) which represents the British music recording industry has announced that it has successfully reached a 'groundbreaking agreement' between record labels and major UK internet service providers, as well as the British government, on measures to help significantly reduce illegal filesharing. "Following negotiations facilitated by the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR), BPI …

A federal court today ruled in favor of people using file-sharing applications such as Napster and Kazaa, notorious for illegal distribution of music files. The ruling was a blow to the [URL= http://www.riaa.org/]Recording Industry Association of America[/URL], which has been combating users and developers of this software because of its potential to illegally distribute copyrighted material. In essence, the ruling states that merely making music files available for sharing does not constitute copyright infringement. The case, Atlantic v. Howell, centers on Jeffrey and Pamela Howell, a husband and wife that had Kazaa installed on their system. Mr. Howell asserted that …
