Usenet download website Newzbin2 has found an ready made solution to counter the entertainment industry's efforts to shut down websites by blocking their domain name.
Using a tool widely used today to protect freedom of speech around the world, Newzbin2 says they've already made it possible for users to access their website even if the MPAA manages to block their domain name.
The tool in question is Tor, a tool frequently used by human rights campaigners around the world to protect their identities from the prying eyes of governments, and now this tool has made it possible for Newzbin2 to operate without having a domain name.
It appears, once again, the entertainment industry's attempt to use technology to curb piracy has failed, this time before they even started, and has made websites like Newzbin2 even more resilient.
Do you think this cat and mouse game that the entertainment industry is playing is actually making online piracy more resilient and harder to track, let alone stop? Post your opinion in this article's comments section, or in this forum thread:
