It's nice to see that studios are realizing money spent on anti-piracy cartels is money well wasted.
I have wondered at many points how the U.S. supreme court would veiw their actions if they were accused of prohibiting the publics constitutional rights.
The ones i have in mind would be:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
This would only apply to government funded groups if we could prove by damaging the network they were also affecting the chat system.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
I'm well aware that this one has been brought up and caused the dismisal of many cases within the states jurisdiction but it was still worth mentioning for this reply.
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
This seems to be contradictory of many cases as the person who is using the machine to do the "crime" is rarely ever proven.
you are allowed to be confronted with the witness against you.
If someone hacks into your pc and sees an active transfer.
Could that person in a court room point the finger and say for sure that it was YOU who was doing it?
Article 1 gaurentees your protection by the government against infringements of the forementioned amendments. the terms of the constitution and any further ratified amendments.
So, theres my mind, hope you enjoy.
