'Ranger' Vs. the Movie Pirates Software Is Studios' Latest Weapon in A Growing Battle, By Frank Ahrens Washington Post Technews.com, June 19, 2002; Page H01 http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A5144-2002Jun18.html "Ranger is burrowing through the public parts of your computer, sniffing around, turning over bits of data, trying to find out if you've stolen a movie over the Internet. Ranger takes the titles and, "like a bloodhound," Valenti said, sets out on the Internet, looking for those films on Web sites, in chat rooms, on peer-to-peer sites. It is an automated software, speeding across the Internet. When it finds a movie title, it marks the location, decides whether the movie is being used in a way that infringes on its copyright, then moves on. Jeremy Rasmussen, Ranger Online's chief technology executive and founder, won't disclose exactly how his software manages this, except to say: "The challenge is 'How do you cover a lot of area without having to visit every page?' That's part of the intelligent way we scan." digital-copyright Digest 19 Jun 2002 Issue 16 *** Piracy: Will Cable Unplug the File Swappers? By Jane Black, BusinessWeek.com, JUNE 12, 2002 http://www.businessweek.com/technology/content/jun2002/tc20020612_1108.htm "New pricing plans for broadband use could make downloading pirated music and movies a prohibitively costly habit" "....they're rolling out new pricing schemes that could put limits on bandwidth usage per month and charge users additional fees if they go above the limit. ... Everything else in life has restraints -- except digital music and movies," says Ted Cohen, vice-president for new media at EMI. Cohen is optimistic that tiered pricing for broadband could introduce a "financial consequence" for piracy and cut down on sharing of pirated content. "Tiered pricing won't help artists or labels get paid, but it's a step in the right direction," he says. " digital-copyright Digest 14 Jun 2002 Issue 13 *** File sharing: Innocent until proven guilty By Damien Cave, Salon.com, 6/13/02 http://salon.com/tech/feature/2002/06/13/liebowitz/index.html "An economist says music piracy should be hurting the recording industry, but it isn't -- and he doesn't know why. Stan Liebowitz (CATO Institute):."There's a 5 percent decline in CD sales this year, but that's what you might expect in a recession. So we're still not seeing much. And what I'm beginning to suggest now is that perhaps people aren't going to replace the purchase of CDs with these MP3s.
