It seems that the UK is going to become the toughest country for cyber pirates. The latest news has it that one “pirate” was arrested for uploading the UK 40 songs on the Pirate Bay and Kickass Torrent pirate websites. What is this supposed to mean for the pirate content industry?
Well, the first invaluable lesson is that the larger the data package is, you are uploading online, the greater the chances are, you will be eventually caught. In other words, if the “hero” of our story could have been satisfied with only a couple of songs, then he had not had some time to spend in the police station.
Europe has obviously become tremendously intolerant, when it comes to cyber piracy and copyright violations. We cannot tell for sure, who or what is more responsible for this new anti-piracy-tide in Europe, the Hollywood itself or the new approach of the EU Commission?
Either way, the busy little bees in the Pirate Bay again have quite a challenge to deal with. So far, their abilities to adapt and strike back with a vengeance have been quite remarkable. Let us see, how they will respond to the serious of damaging legal blows sent with love from both Hollywood and EU Commission.
