News Article: P2P Snoops Need PI License In Michigan
« on: September 14, 2008, 05:30:48 AM »
Michigan recently passed a law requiring the (arguably) biggest P2P snoop to have a private investigators license.

The RIAA's campaign against filesharers follows a standard procedure: find a computer offering files for download, get a court to force the ISP or organization that provided the computer's IP address to reveal the computer's owner, and then sue the owner. The group has contracted with MediaSentry to do the work of identifying the infringing computers, but that company's methods have been called into question in a number of states that have licensing requirements for private investigators that include the computer-based snooping required to gather the data. Michigan was one such state and, if there was any doubt about the licensing issue there, it's gone now: the state passed a law that specifically calls for computer forensics groups to be licensed.

That's nice :Thmbsup:

MediaSentry have definitely been up to no good... including, but not limited to: hacking, DDOS attacks, attacking legitimate sites, et cetera.

Run uTorrent with PeerGuardian for a few days. I guarantee no matter how legit your torrents are you will see MediaSentry on that list.
