do you think every single user will be sought after?
#2
Yeah, because it's a really practical and easy thing to do.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

Aw, bless. Perhaps this'll teach you not to pirate music.

I'd say you have a 1/2 chance of getting caught. They go through the entire database, and flip a coin on every name. Heads you get fined, tails you're free.

Lol, yes. I'm in a laughing mood, so I'll be nice this time. Chances are, none of the database is going to get into trouble. The site is going to be removed and the owners arrested or fined, depending on whatever country they're based in. Don't worry, you're not going to get in trouble.

If users get in trouble, it'll be the donators and mass uploaders and downloaders. If you've only downloaded a bit, uploaded a bit, seed for a while you're going to be one of many. Chances of you getting punished are close to nil. There are much easier targets they'll go for, if at all. They just want to scare you from pirating.

dude i could never smoke pot, or steal candy or something like that with the thread starter. such a nervous wreck.

i thinkt he chances of anyone using oink getting caught is pretty slim.
#23
I doubt anyone will get busted for this besides the site owners. They'll probably go after top sharers, after all, the **** that got them into trouble has been the big leaks, NIN, Smashing Pumpkins, rap, etc.

sweet. Im just hoping they dont go after the users.



dude, you were there for like what, three days? relax..

to quote my smart friend, the_overlord:

(22:51:00) (Overlord) put it this way
(22:51:22) (Overlord) they can't fairly punish one person for a crime when 180,000 others have also committed the crime
(22:51:35) (Overlord) the authorities can't be arsed penalising so many people

sry im just paranoid, had a bad day then came home to this. And yeh, its just that phrase on oink atm.
#36
Most likely, they just said that they were investigating it to scare users away. Or they actually are, but if so, they'll go after people who upped pre-release stuff.

Yeah, I know, that little sentence at the end sucks. But like people said before, they're probably just trying to scare people, and if they're actually going after users they'll probably go after the top uploaders.
#39
Hmmm, i saw a case on Limewire where a single mother got fined $108,000 for downloading 48 tracks. If they go after anyone, they'll pick on one person and absolutely slaughter them to "set an example" to other people. That's their intentions.
#40
Well, it seems like they are just trying to make people shit themselves, basically. They surely can't have the time or resources to go after everyone, and if they did, then Limewire would have got bashed a long time ago.
There is poetry in despair.
