My concern was not so much whether the illicit material could be removed by the copyright holder, but more whether or not the copyright holder could at their option prosecute the offender. Obviously, if they can't identify who the offender is, they can't prosecute.
dcvtss says that this New Zealand file sharing site does not maintain anonymity, so those who are doing something illegal can be tracked down and prosecuted. So why is the FBI going after this guy? What law has he broken? We only have one side at this point, but it isn't clear he has broken any law from what we know so far. Frankly, this whole business of the FBI chasing after this guy in New Zealand is a little disturbing.
Agree. Kim is a big flamboyant guy who taunts the authorities, but he is really a good hearted individual , I guess he finally pushed the wrong person--- with this said, he is no longer a criminal and certainly does not deserve to be bullied by the Fed. looking forward to seeing how this ends up....my bet is on Kim.
