Roma afinal paga a traidores
Segundo este artigo da Wired, a MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) reconheceu ter pago a um antigo responsavel do tracker de torrents TorrentSpy qualquer coisa como 15 mil dolares, a troco de informacao roubada dos servidores deste servico:
There’s a trace of pride in his voice as he details the hack. “The e-mails weren’t forwarded using the mail command. They were sent actually before it reached anyone’s mailbox,” he says. “So it was more like interception before delivery. I could even stop certain mail from reaching their box.”
In this manner, Anderson says, he sucked down about three dozen pages of e-mails detailing banking, advertising and other confidential information. “Everything they were talking about was sent to my Gmail,” he says. “Everything they sent, anything sent to them, I got: invoices; in one case they sent passwords.”
Nao discuto a legalidade ou a ilegalidade de musica/filmes sacados. Mas esta politica da RIAA/MPAA de que as regras legais sao muito bonitas mas apenas para aplicar aos utilizadores que partilham ficheiros cheira a podre. Cheira, nao. Tresanda. Tambem lhe poderiamos dar o nome de hipocrisia. Mas enfim.
Quanto ao Judas, que os 30 dinheiros de prata lhe pesem no bolso. Alias, ja devem pesar:
But once Anderson turned over the data and cashed the MPAA’s check, he quickly realized that Garfield had no further use for him. “He lost interest in me,” he says. Anderson felt abandoned: During negotiations with Garfield, the hacker had become convinced he was starting a long-term, lucrative relationship with the motion picture industry. “He was stringing me along personally.”
Como qualquer amante rejeitado/a, decidiu agora vingar-se na MPAA dando com a boca no trombone.
