Ouch. Have very little sympathy for the recorded music industry. Would favour this if MP3's were not so ridiculously over priced - a low quality delivered at next to zero cost for the price of the CD. I'm sure this will stop file sharing on Eircom for about two weeks till a circumventing measure appears.

Gerard Cunningham

According to Silicon Republic, 'The labels wanted Eircom to install filtering software such as Audible Magic to help prevent the rise of music piracy which coincided with and they believe is responsible for falling music sales'.

A google for 'bypass Audible Magic' suggests that getting past the barrier is relatively trivial. so what does that leave us with? An assumption of guilt against any subscriber with a heavy usage pattern?

As soon as everyone realises its pointless to try stop these downloads the better. The music companies should stop wasting time and money on legalities and think of beter and cheaper ways to distribute their mucis!

Antoin O Lachtnain

Does this apply to all illegal activity on the Internet? What about wikipedia vandalism, for instance?

I us PeerGuardian 2 to block both Eircom and IrishBroadband from tracing my P2P activity. It works..

Justin Mason

Anderson: for now. Apps like PeerGuardian will be working adversarially against the investigative companies like Dtecnet, so it's going to be cat and mouse for the foreseeable future, I'd reckon, with Dtecnet finding ways around their blocklists and vice-versa. (this has parallels in my own experience in the anti-spam field ;)

fwiw, I blogged some followup thoughts at http://taint.org/2009/01/29/111355a.html

instead of holding on to fancy prices, these music companies could sell cheaper so the increased sales volume would generate desired profit

Under the compromise, they will come to us, using the same standard of proof they would have given the court. We need to be convinced that our subscriber is file-sharing illegally."

Applications such as PeerGuardian adversarially be working against companies like Dtecnet research, so it will be cat and mouse in the near future, I would have Dtecnet finding the shape of their lists of blocks and vice versa.

Dare and the world always yields. If it beats you sometimes, dare it again and again and it will succumb. Do you think so?

Only those who have the patience to do simple things perfectly ever acquire the skill to do difficult things easily .

Sex, pornography, these two issues are often very sensitive to deal with when you get to have children, I am one of those parents who prefer to educate their children at home rather than learn the wrong things with friends or in schools, I think many more parents should think the same way, so would avoid large numbers of unwanted pregnancies. Thanks!
