Illegal file sharing of film and music

Highwaymen pulled a knotted handkerchief over their face. Bank and Building Society robbers drew a pantyhose over their head. Rioters in the UK wore Hoodies whilst they smashed the High Streets' shop windows to break into electrical outlets and steal flat screen TVs !
There's a common them here. Each of them knew that what they were doing was illegal and that, if they were caught, they would be punished. The Highwaymen feared being identified by one or, more of the occupants of the coach. The Bank and Building Society robbers feared being identified by the Bank' staff and/or security guards. The rioters knew that their images would be captured on the network of CCTV cameras covering all the UK's major towns and cities.
So, to minimise the chances of being caught, they 'masked' their identities.
According to new research from Sweden's Lund University, people, especially the younger generation, are aware that they also face similar risks when they use the internet to download illegal and copyright protected content and according to the report, they are using Virtual Private Network (VPN) connections to mask their identity when they are using the internet for illegal activity.
I have highlighted the problems that the film and music industry faces and the lengths that they are going to on multiple fronts to curtail the activities of illegal film and music downloading and hopefully, my readers are aware of the risks that they face if they choose to use the internet to break the law. I have also written about VPN connections and how they can be used to circumvent some of the measures that the music and film industry has in place.
In the latest move against Pirate Bay - what was once a very popular site for file sharing, five of the UK's top internet service providers have completely blocked access to its service. When Virgin Media's customers attempt to gain access, instead of the usual Pirate Bay website, their users get a notice that includes "Sorry, the web page you have requested is not available through Virgin Media," the message goes on to explain that Virgin Media has been ordered by the Courts to block access to the website.
Industry analysts and commentators are now predicting that the next target for the music and film industry will be the providers of these VPN services who are usually independent businesses and companies. Had the lawyers who work for and represent the current interests of the music and film industry been around in the days of Dick Turpin, I doubt that they would have been issuing writs against the makers of the handkerchieves that he used to hide his face - owning and using a handkerchief doesn't make you a highwayman !
