View Full Version : Paramount Pictures Shuts Down Skadi

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2004, 03:19 PM
Our whole main server (and all sites on it, including Skadi) had been disconnected from the Internet by our dedicated server provider for almost 24 hours on direct request of the company representing the copyright interests of Paramount Pictures.

Allegedly, a low quality CD size version of an old movie (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0264616/) whose copyright Paramount holds had been shared via our server.

According to information we received the movie is no longer performed in cinemas, and has already been broadcasted on television. So it's a serious issue.

If you hold any accounts on this server, please do not infringe others' copyright. This includes in particular this very forum and all hosting accounts.

We cannot and do not monitor attachments in private messages.

Thanks and credits go to rusalka, Loki, and in particular Nordhammer for their negotiations with our dedicated server provider to get the machine up again as soon as possible.

Oh well, at least its nothing which couldnt be solved, and I want to thank the people involved, which fixed the problem.

Indeed, this was a most serious issue!
This has perhaps been caused by the increased allowance of attachment size. It's a pity it's been abused like this if that's the case.

I agree, a big thanks to everyone involved in the negotiations :thumbsup

BTW, this dude http://www.forums.skadi.net/image.php?u=2553&dateline=1088070453 is a hugely muscular Australian UP-Nordic, but he got his ass handed to him by a smaller, fat, Japanese Sumo guy in a Pride fight just because the Aussie had no fighting skills. Shows you that training is far more important than size or strength.

I am honestly surprised that the internet isn't more censored by now. With the huge conglomerations of media they can easily buy themselves large chunks of the global network and choke out the little guys that don't have the money to fight the corporations. ;(



Sidenote: P2P users should use PeerGuardian

I remember when media companies used to do that. I wanted to see Beowulf & Grendel, so I found it for free and was disappointed, despite it being an Icelandic film. I forgot I had downloaded and kept it, so I just deleted it and that was it. Contrary to propaganda, seeing it free doesn't necessarily mean that it won't be paid for. I saw Beowulf in theatre and also got it on DVD (despite hating Angelina Jolie), but this other one with Gerard Butler was a joke.
