Understanding Anti-Piracy Enforcement

TorrentFreak has a great post explaining some of the most common misconceptions about anti-piracy enforcement today. They are:

  1. There have been very few actual legal cases, as yet, that have involved torrents.
  2. The majority of copyright cases are CIVIL, not criminal
  3. What most people think of as being the law, often isn’t.
  4. The RIAA and the MPAA never get involved in anti piracy evidence collection directly.
  5. Most of the time, people are going from what someone they have met on a forum had read in an IRC channel.

Each of these are addresses in detail on TorrentFreak.
