SOPA is Baaaaack

You probably remember the online outrage over the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) copyright enforcement proposal. Last week, the Department of Commerce’s Internet Policy Task Force released a report on digital copyright policy that endorsed one piece of the controversial proposal: making the streaming of copyrighted works a felony. As it stands now, streaming a copyrighted work over the Internet is considered a violation of the public performance right. The violation is only punishable as a misdemeanor, rather than the […]

What Is Multisite?

Bank websites attacked


Yet again the US business industry has underestimated their attackers, and they are slowly losing this war. Major U.S. bank websites have been offline a total of 249 hours in the past six weeks, and hackers are not doing all that they can. At most they are at around 60%-70% full throttle, and there may be good reason. To learn about someone’s defenses, the easiest way is to make them use them. You find out what […]

Site is not really up and running yet, I am slowly transferring current clients over to it (hope it works out well). WHMCS seems to be helping, and I am digging the new software. Also been using my new BTGuard account to try out my torrents. Had some […]

People are looking for other ways of transferring currency with less overhead, more trust, and a way of storing their money without just shoving it under their mattress.

Cyber Attacks Now the Biggest Threat

Copyright Alert System

I know people who do it. You probably know people who do it. And we’re not talking about falling in love. File sharing, the euphemism for copying and sharing copyrighted material without paying, was one of the early hallmarks of the digital, anything-goes-on-the-Internet age.

Now, […]
