    As a matter of interest how long would it take them to block the ip address, and how long would it be before they had a new one up and running?

    The real reason eircom has blocked pirate bay was because a while ago eircom customers had no internet access after attacks on eircoms network. These attacks were believed to have come from pirate bay so eircom pulled the plug on them.

    I thought it was the other way around, that because Eircom had blocked Piratebay they were attacked.

    Not from what I was told. My cousin has been their main engineer in south dublin for years now and he went into their tech department and asked the main people in there what the crack was and thats what he was told. He was fuming as he used it all the time lol.

    The main point of the show was about music download but s@# and v@#$%& where stated as being big supporters of the bill as they want to clamp down on the other medias like film and Tv. If this is previous or current shows only they know.

    i suspect that your ip will not be as important to eircom as pirate bay, so i don't really see it as an issue. you will have to make the headlines before your ip will be acted on

    And after eircon blocked the pirate bay, it took me about 10 seconds to have it back again, but that was a very easy work around.

    aye the eircom issue is easily got around alrite, but the main concern is not eircom, if upc can find or track the server IP for the SV6 they can just block it, without even saying a word, that way any of their customers who are using the sv6 could be hit, ya cant just ring em and complain if it happens! lol

    just a thought

    UPC will simply run a report to find all customers with a history of connecting to ***.***.***.***. This is enough evidence to bring said customers to court. Only a complete idiot would use UPC broadband running this box.

    Surely they'd have to prove you had a box with the software on before they brought you to court?

    yer missing the point mate, they can log what you are doing, once you connect yer box and it does what it does via the net, now, if that stands up is another thing, but your provider can provide data to anything you have watched on the net
