They don't find you through websites you visit. They track you through ip connections and requests.

They only target the big downloaders and seeders. They don't have the resources or time to target the normal downloaders (have worked in computer forensics and all that jazz).

Seasoned pirate here, not professional just been on the seas a while. There are lots of ways to decrease the chance of being caught. Ive been doing it for years never gotten an I.S.P. letter, email, or anything telling me to cease. I know a few people who have but still do it and basically i follow a few small steps *(1.) download peerblock some people say it doesn't help but i see a **** ton of names blocked when i'm actively downloading. *(2.) Set upload to the minimum like 1kb/s or lower (i'll get a lot of hate for this) but if you are in a country that regulates and makes pirating illegal you cant really risk it. My understanding is companies like Disney and record labels / movie studios will release files that are hidden in torrents, most of the time they cant really prove you downloaded anything unless they are watching your specific connection which honestly never happens without really good reason (and maybe a warrant? i'm not 100% on that) but what they bust you on isn't the downloading its the uploading. Redistributing content if you send enough of a downloaded file back to them they have the evidence to send to court and make a case against you. *(3.) Only download torrents that you check out and read the comments on. this is for your PCs protection as well as legal there can be all kinds of things in files it doesn't happen often but it can happen. Ive never gotten a virus from pirating but Ive seen shady files ones with tons of Seeds/up loaders and no comments could be a flag, usually look for skulls those are more trusted up loaders. (I cannot confirm everything ive stated, these are just rules i go by and i havent been caught for over 15 years) I still buy dvds sometimes if i have the money, its nice to have a hard copy of things. I also still buy all my games, my PC isn't good enough for most new things anyways.

**** you, seed you bitch. Just be smart and it doesn't matter.
User avatar #66 to #52 - hasinvadedyou (07/02/2013) [-]
Seeding is how you get caught there is no "being smart" about it that i have seen only if you live in a place that doesn't care can you truly be free to seed. But feel free to enlighten me and other pirates about these "smart" tips to seed without being caught via the way i explained they catch you.
User avatar #78 to #37 - xsnowbanex (07/02/2013) [-]
I personally pirate **** on a regular basis and I've been doing it for a bout 2 years now. I've downloaded dozens of movies, songs, software, and e-books from pirate-bay. I take little precaution and I haven't heard from my internet provider. Just be careful not to do A LOT at once ya know. I had a friend who downloaded 2 movies and was charged by her internet provider though. So the situation varies from case to case. All in all, I owe like over $5,000 in merchandise. So if i get caught I am ******
User avatar #90 to #37 - meganinja ONLINE (07/02/2013) [-]
does it make a difference if you're deleting everything (well, almost everything) that you download? I download games, try them out, and then delete them. I've still kept onto Civ5 because I haven't gotten through a full game yet...... I set it on the longest possible mode with like 24 (or whatever the max is) players.
User avatar #44 to #37 - euthyphro (07/02/2013) [-]
From what I've read from anecdotes, it depends on how much you download. If you're downloading a couple of songs here and there, maybe even a movie on occasion -- you should be fine.

However, I heard of a guy using it as his primary place to get songs to fill his ipod, and he got a severe warning from his internet provider.

Essentially, don't take advantage of it.
User avatar #87 to #44 - Dap (07/02/2013) [-]

I stock shelves at Target and I can say a lot of people do buy CDs still, mainly country CDs, but a vast majority of people seem to just pick them up and move them to the wrong spot.

I always buy CDs when it's from an artist that's independent and/or gets very little attention otherwise and therefore giving me the need to show my support.   
But for big names like Metallica and RHCP?  			****		 that 			****		; they can live without my ten bucks, and we all know most of the profit goes to the record label anyway and not the artist.  If you REALLY want to show support for your favorite bands, go to their concerts.  They can profit the most that way and what could be better than seeing your favorite musician live?   
Plus, touring costs a 			********		 of moolah, so they need all the help they can get.

You forget all the average joes that work at record labels. Those are the ones you're affecting when you pirate stuff. That's why so many labels had to fire huge amounts of employees.

if i like it
i will save up to buy it if its a sack of horse **** then im not paying for that ****
User avatar #59 to #57 - kevinipples (07/02/2013) [-]
it depends on whether the artist really needs your money or if their ****** loaded like most
#68 to #59 - anon (07/02/2013) [-]
People working at record label need the money. Not the CEO, all of the regular people who work there. Those are the people that piracy hurt.
#72 to #68 - dontknowmeatall (07/02/2013) [-]
They get the exact same payment if the song makes a dollar or a million, because they don't charge by sale. They have a regular salary which will only be affected if the record company closes, which is not likely since most of the current music companies also make films (Sony, Warner, Universal, Disney), and obviously they record the music for their own movies.
#79 to #72 - anon (07/02/2013) [-]
You do know there are a lot more record labels than those ones right?
#82 to #79 - dontknowmeatall (07/02/2013) [-]
Yes, but they're not that big and their artists don't go around bitching about how they can't get a new boat 'cuz you thought their $80 album was overrated.
User avatar #100 to #72 - dtox (07/02/2013) [-]
whether or not something makes a dollar or a million can determine just how many people get to keep their jobs.
#107 to #100 - dontknowmeatall (07/02/2013) [-]
That's on factories, not artistic companies. If Akon doesn't sell, then Akon gets fired and they hire Pitbull. the people from the record company is not affected, mostly because it's easier to replace a singer than an audio technician. If Akon's tech guy is good he keeps his job. Also, he doesn't just work with Akon. He works with whoever the record company sends him.
User avatar #70 to #68 - kevinipples (07/02/2013) [-]
thats true. i never thought about that. im still never buying music. unless its a cd to collect
#83 to #57 - anon (07/02/2013) [-]
Most of my games I get are from smaller companies that actually need the money and care about game quality so I always buy them simply because it means more money invested in patches, expansion and new games
User avatar #75 - themurp (07/02/2013) [-]
Does anyone else get angry when pirates act like they're not doing something immoral? I pirate a lot myself, but I know I'm doing something wrong I just don't care. They say it hurts the economy and we are stealing hard working peoples money and stuff but really, who can resist free pillage and rape?
#85 to #75 - broale (07/02/2013) [-]
Hard working?! No. I work for the god damned fire department, and don't have close to the money this little **** has. Plus most of them act like obnoxious little spit ***** . I don't believe most of them are even remotely deserving of what they have.

the way I see it, I don't give a **** about the artists, but what about the sound editors, the producers, and all the other little people that help out?

I pirate occasionally myself, but I'm not going to go around and say that it's morally right just so the money doesn't go to a little ******** .
User avatar #95 to #94 - broale (07/02/2013) [-]
They get their fair shares also, more than most people earn
User avatar #117 to #85 - themurp (07/02/2013) [-]
broale dtox meganinja .........
I don't understand how your comments relate to pirating, but I agree with some of you. Why should they get all the money when I work just as hard as them?! Do you know how hard it was to get this boat? And don't get me started on how sore my sword arm gets. (and my rape arm *wink*wink*)
User avatar #96 to #85 - dtox (07/02/2013) [-]
I'm sorry, but could you explain to me how comparing justin bieber to what is basically the entirty of the entertainment industry (with regards to the media that is pirated daily) makes at all any logical sense?

And plenty of people, whose music and media are ravenously pirated, are EXTREMELY hard working. to say "most of them" when referring to the contrary is just a gross exaggeration.

that's very ****** , but I'd still like to pay for battlefront 3, that's a franchise I really want to support and play
#22 to #18 - anon (07/01/2013) [-]
not stealing.

remember when you stole a car but the car you stole never went anywhere.

the company only technically makes a loss if you would have bought the CD if you couldnt download it. Most films I download I would have never payed to see. Those I would pay to see I do pay.
User avatar #23 to #22 - ssurtrebor **User deleted account** (07/01/2013) [-]
Steal: to take (the property of another or others) without permission or right.

Yes, it's stealing.

For a lot of people, it's a way to see what artists they like so they can support those artists. If they see or hear something they like, they'll probably buy it.
User avatar #26 to #25 - ssurtrebor **User deleted account** (07/01/2013) [-]
Youtube doesn't exist? Are you trying to make it sound like it's not illegal, or....?
User avatar #27 to #26 - itsthatguyagain (07/01/2013) [-]
Nope. Just trying to justify it a bit. It's your opinion that it's wrong, but I don't think it is if people buy the actual thing. Think of it as a test drive but with a song or movie.
User avatar #80 to #26 - smashingkills (07/02/2013) [-]
watching someone play a game and actually playing it are 2 different things.
User avatar #121 to #80 - ssurtrebor **User deleted account** (07/02/2013) [-]
True, but if you're going to play it, why not buy it?

Sorry I can't hear you over the sound of faggot and butt hurt. Piracy has actually shown to promote capitalism in studies. People want to own physical copies of soundtracks after they've listened to them. Pirated versions can be tricky and don't always work, so people eventually buy the real thing.

Why pirate?

You can listen to everything from youtube for free, it's legal and a lot easier.

You can make youtube playlist which you can listen trough computer or phone so there's just no need for using torrent.
