Busted: BitTorrent Pirates at Sony, Universal and Fox

We aren???t the only ones to come up with the idea of revealing the BitTorrent habits of copyright advocates. Yesterday, the Dutch blog Geenstijl exposed how someone at the local music royalty collecting agency Buma/Stemra downloaded a copy of the TV-show Entourage and video game Battlefield 3.

In a response Buma/Stemra issued a press release stating that their IP-addresses were spoofed. A very unlikely scenario, but one that will be welcomed by BitTorrent pirates worldwide. In fact, they???d encourage Sony, Universal and Fox to say something similar. After all, if it???s so easy to spoof an IP-address, then accused file-sharers can use this same defense against copyright holders.

The cat among the other cats.
