  4. DHT, the much misunderstood, frequently maligned, yet somewhat critical aspect of Bittorrent turned ten recently. Launched initially by the Azureus client (now Vuze), BitTorrent Inc.’s version joined its mainline client a few weeks later. Now, a decade on, DHT underpins much of the BitTorrent world. This is its history. The Birth of DHT, May 2005 When BitTorrent started in 2002, decentralization was one of its main innovations. The central structure of services like Napster ultimately led to their downfall, and while decentralized systems such as eDonkey/eMule and Gnutella existed, they were often cumbersome and filled with fakes and spam. BitTorrent was also somewhat individualized. Clients only dealt with clients on the swarms they were interested in, and all conducted business through a tracker. This led to problems though, when trackers went down, as the trackers were the only way for peers to get information about others in the swarm. There was no fallback, except trying to add more trackers and hope everyone else adds the same. However, with the launch of Distributed Hash Tables (DHT) these problems were all but over. That two similar but incompatible DHT systems were launched within weeks of each other is quite surprising, given the history behind both. To this day, in fact, the systems are still incompatible, although there are plug-ins that allow the use of both to act as a bridge between the two swarms (one Vuze, one Mainline). When you factor in that both were released just months after eXeem had tried and failed to do a similar thing (earning significant criticism while doing so) the success and longevity of both look even more impressive. But how did they come about? The Vuze DHT debuted first, with version 2.3.0 of the Azureus client on May 2, 2005. In its announcements back then, they were keen to stress the difference from eXeem, stating it was a decentralized layer on top of BitTorrent, rather than a decentralised BitTorrent system itself. Within 24 hours there were more than 200,000 peers, and there are currently around 1.1 million peers on the network. According to Paul Gardener, the main developer of the Azureus DHT system, tracker redundancy wasn’t the main reason behind its development. Instead, decentralization for search was driving it. “That was one of my pet aims when I joined the Azureus development team,†Gardener told TF earlier this month. “But the others in the team weren’t sure if search was a priority, so I found a way of working on some decentralization that perhaps one day could evolve into/be adapted for search. Of course decentralized tracking was a good aim in itself.†“I started from scratch,†Gardener recalls, “there weren’t any libraries out there I could use, so had to figure out which kind of DHT to use (Kademlia) etc. [it took] a few months I guess.†Three weeks later, Bittorrent Inc. released their own version of DHT with the release of version 4.1. This was then adopted by the then popular client BitComet in early June, and by other clients soon after. While the timing may suggest otherwise, BitTorrent’s DHT wasn’t a response to Vuze’s release at all, as the person responsible – Drue Loewenstern – had been working on it since 2002. “I started working on the DHT in the summer of 2002 after making the first Mac BitTorrent clients, a year before Azureus was established on Sourceforge. Finishing it off and integration into BitTorrent started in 05 when BT became a company. I was in testing and about to release it when Azureus launched theirs,†Loewenstern says. The inspiration for the BitTorrent mainline DHT came from an unlikely and famous source: Aaron Swartz. “Distributed hash tables were an inspiring area of research. I was really into P2P, having just worked on MojoNation and BitTorrent, and wanted to do all sorts of cool decentralized things like trust metrics. Aaron Swartz, 15 at the time, circulated a one page implementation of the Chord algorithm and I was struck by its simplicity, Loewenstern notes. “I started looking into DHTs specifically and Kademlia was the first DHT paper that really clicked with me and seemed like it might work in the real world So I decided to start implementing it without really knowing what I was going to do with it.†Contrary to Vuze, redundancy was one of the main motivations driving the development of the mainline DHT. In the case of BitTorrent, the goal of the DHT has always been to make BT more robust, to improve performance by finding more peers, and to simplify publishing by making a tracker optional,†Loewenstern says. DHT ‘Haters’ Of course, not everyone was thrilled to see the introduction of DHT. Private trackers were opposed to DHT as it enabled people to use the site’s torrents without being under the strict control of the tracker admins. The solution to this was a form of access control called the private flag, which disabled DHT, along with Peer Exchange (PEX) and restricted peer access to trackers – locking things into the way of 2005. The flag works by being inside the data used to generate the hash, so if disabled, it would change the overall torrent hash, meaning a torrent with the flag enabled would be a completely separate swarm from one with the flag disabled. It also gave these sites a new way to market themselves, by taking the term “private flagged torrent trackers†and condensing it to “private trackers,†implying some form of privacy. This move though, was not by choice. “There’s always been tensions between clients and private trackers,†Vuze’s Gardener says. “In particular they like to ban Vuze because it is ‘open source and people have hacked it to report incorrect stats’ or other such ‘reasons’. I’ve never been a fan of [the private flag] as a solution.†Loewenstern agrees “It came to be because some index site operators enforce upload/download ratios in an effort to keep seeders around for torrents that nobody wants to be left holding the bag for by seeding. They thought DHT (and PEX) might let users bypass the ratio system so they made a lot of noise about banning clients that implemented DHT,†he says. “Azureus didn’t want to get banned so they came up with the private flag and added it to their client. It wasn’t my decision to add it to BitTorrent. Without PEX, torrents take longer to ramp up so it annoys me when people upload private torrents to public index sites.†NEXT, The BitComet Incident The BitComet Incident, December 2005 BitComet, one of the dominant BitTorrent clients at the time, came out in support of the mainline DHT standard in early June of 2005. It set the tempo for other clients and showed that DHT in general was a really good idea. Yet BitComet was also going to provide the first major client dispute later that year with the release of v0.60. At the core, the same old argument of wanting absolute control over peers (and thus the private flag) made into a big deal by those desperate to prevent any loss of control. In short, BitComet decided to implement a system where if the tracker on a private-flagged torrent went offline for a certain period of time, the client would enable DHT, and when the tracker came back up, DHT would be disabled again. This common sense approach provoked outrage based on deliberate misrepresentations, but it generated enough noise that BitComet withdrew the 0.60 client, eventually replacing it with v0.61 and the now ‘standard’ DHT functionality. More DHT Push-back This was only the first major push-back against DHT by those desperate to remain in control, and perhaps the most overt. It’s become common for private trackers to ‘demand’ that DHT be disabled in the client and for people to become disorientated as a result, when often those making the claims were the most confused. There have even been claims made that certain clients leak peer info to DHT, a myth we debunked back in 2009. There is one thing that does ‘encourage’ people to disable DHT though. Especially in 2005 (but still occasionally now) network hardware had problems with DHT. The problem was caused by the significant use of UDP, rather than the more traditional TCP. Routers with limited ram would have it filled by the UDP traffic and lock up or go very slowly. Thanks to Gigabit LAN and Wireless-N and AC, however, this is less of an issue now than it once was, even with multiple computers running DHT connected. It’s now mostly the province of ISP-provided hardware, which tends to hover on the low-end of the equipment spectrum for cost purposes. The Pirate Bay Boost, September 2009 Despite all its benefits, DHT adoption was slow until 2009 when it got a huge boost from one of the biggest torrent sites around, The Pirate Bay. In November 2009, they announced they were going to be closing their tracker, and moving towards magnet links, to make the site lighter and quicker. Magnets were not new, they were part of the DHT spec, but hadn’t gained much use until TPB’s change. Suddenly, lots of users were trying to work out how to get magnets to work, both with clients and browsers, and because of the requirement for DHT in order to make magnets work, DHT itself started becoming more popular. Of course, that meant that a lot of the old rumours about DHT also resurfaced, some of which still persist to this day. Search at last, March 2011 As mentioned earlier, search was one of Gardner’s main motivations for creating DHT, but it wasn’t until 2011 that a DHT search engine emerged. BTDigg started at the end of March 2011, and was an invaluable resource for many. The ability to tap into the DHT network as a whole with a decent interface meant it was not only the biggest search engine (since it had pretty much any torrent that ran on a DHT-enabled client without the private flag set) but also the most like mainstream search engines, in that it actively searched and indexed entries, rather than waiting for them to be manually added like traditional indexes. “The main reason to make BTDigg,†their spokesperson ‘NE’ told TorrentFreak, “was an absence of independent search engines in the BitTorrent network. It was the same situation as the Web in pre-Google era, the era of Web Catalogues.†Alas, the site closed its web front end earlier this year, remaining available via both TOR and I2P, a situation they put down to their host withdrawing one of their servers, with no reason given. In the meantime, successors like Strike carry on their work DHT today, 2015 Which brings us to now, ten years after DHT provided the last functional change to the BitTorrent protocol (utp was more of a technological one). DHT has enabled Bittorrent to remain the top dog, and while a dozen-or-so competing P2P systems jockeyed for dominance in the six years after Napster’s launch, nothing has even come close to challenging BitTorrent. “I researched the question ‘Why is BitTorrent still popular?’ and concluded that the main reason is because the BitTorrent protocol inherits good features from previous protocols (like eMule & Kazaa) and eliminates their weak sides. So the appearance of BitTorrent was logical evolution of previous people’s efforts in file sharing,†NE told us earlier this year. DHT was clearly the last step, enabling an underlying central mesh network to support the decentralized nature of the individual torrent swarms. It gave it the resilience and longevity to last. Ten years on though, is there anything that the two architects of DHT would do differently if they could go back to 2005? Loewenstern doesn’t seem to think so. “It’s quite humbling to have academics who really know their stuff go over your work with a fine toothed comb and find all the problems. There are a couple of BEPs (Bittorrent Enhancement Proposal) for addressing some design decisions but as [bitTorrent creator] Bram Cohen says, ‘the DHT works,’ so I’d rather go make something else cool.†Gardner agrees saying, “Nothing major to be honest, after 10 years most things have been ironed out. I mean everything needs rewriting once it is complete, that’s the way software works.†Ten years on and going strong, DHT is clearly ready for the next ten. With over 25 Million users between the two networks, it’s not going anywhere. https://torrentfreak.com/bittorrents-dht-turns-10-years-old-150607/2/

  17. Are you located in China, running a pirate version of Windows 7 or Windows 8 but fancy a shiny new version of Windows 10 instead? Well, your luck is in as Microsoft says it will give even the most piratical of Chinese users an upgrade copy of its next operating system for the bargain price of absolutely free. The Chinese are known for duplicating just about anything, from entire Apple stores to some of the world’s most famous cars. Nevertheless and seemingly against the odds, easily copied items are doing well through official channels. China reportedly fueled record global box-office revenues in 2014 and even has official Hollywood movies available online before they air in the United States, ostensibly to beat piracy. And today brings yet more good news for Chinese citizens who prefer not to pay for their content. When it arrives later in the year, Microsoft are going to gift free upgrades of Windows 10 not only to those who purchased Windows 7 and Windows 8, but also to those who pirated them. Speaking from the WinHEC technology conference in Shenzhen, China, Terry Myerson, who runs Microsoft’s operating systems unit, said the plan was aimed at bringing the currently non-paying back on board. “We are upgrading all qualified PCs, genuine and non-genuine, to Windows 10,†Myerson told Reuters. “The plan is to ‘re-engage’ with the hundreds of millions of users of Windows in China,†he said. In January this year Microsoft said it would offer free upgrades of Windows 10 to legitimate users of Windows 7 and Windows 8 but this is the first time that pirates will be given an official free pass. The big question now is how this news will be received in the West. In the United States, for example, pirate users of Windows 7 and 8 will be expected to pay top dollar for Microsoft’s newest OS if they too want to jump aboard the legit train. That may raise hackles. However, the fact that Chinese pirate users will get a free upgrade of Windows 10 could open up avenues for Western pirates to masquerade as their Eastern counterparts in order to avoid paying. Exactly how that will play out will remain to be seen, but it’s more than likely that a ‘pirate’ solution will be found, one way or another. In the meantime many pirates will remain with their current operating system until a stable version of Windows 10 becomes available, whether that hails from China or elsewhere. https://torrentfreak.com/chinese-pirates-to-get-free-windows-10-upgrade-150318/
  18. A leaked build of Windows 10 has revealed that Microsoft may be about to utilize BitTorrent-style tech to deliver updates to its new OS. Deep in the settings is an option to receive updates from multiple sources including Microsoft, local computers and those "on the Internet." Could this be BitTorrent or their own 'Avalanche' system? There once was a time when one could simply throw a disc – floppy or otherwise – into a machine and enjoy software functionality right off the bat. Those days have long gone. Massive complexity, online connectivity and associated cloud features have given way to a culture of almost continual updates with some component or other requiring a ‘fix’ or performance-based software upgrade on an annoyingly regular basis. While huge technology companies have plenty of bandwidth at their disposal, shifting data around doesn’t come free. It is relatively cheap, granted, but those bits and bytes soon cause the dollars to mount up. Much ‘better’ then, is to try and offload some of that load onto consumers. It could be that with its upcoming Windows 10, Microsoft is mulling doing just that. Deep in the settings of a leaked build spotted by Neowin, the company has introduced settings which give users the option of where to obtain updates and apps for their new operating system. DOWNLOAD APPS AND OS UPDATES FROM MULTIPLE SOURCES TO GET THEM MORE QUICKLY Of course, this is where distributed BitTorrent-like systems come into their own, with each user helping to share the load of shifting around data and providing excellent speeds, without any single entity (in this case Microsoft) footing the lion’s share of the bills. If Microsoft did choose BitTorrent, they would be in excellent company. Half a decade ago it was revealed that Twitter had implemented the protocol and in the same year Facebook confirmed deploying its own servers with technology. “It’s ‘superduper’ fast and it allows us to alleviate a lot of scaling concerns we’ve had in the past, where it took forever to get code to the webservers before you could even boot it up and run it,†the company said at the time. But even though Facebook is still having fun with torrent technology to this day, it seems likely that Microsoft has its own, more proprietary tricks up its sleeve. More than a decade ago with BitTorrent in its infancy, Microsoft also began looking at developing P2P distribution. Researcher Christos Gkantsidis published his paper Network Coding for Large Scale Content Distribution which begins with a now very familiar concept. “We propose a new scheme for content distribution of large files that is based on network coding. With network coding, each node of the distribution network is able to generate and transmit encoded blocks of information. The randomization introduced by the coding process eases the scheduling of block propagation, and, thus, makes the distribution more efficient,†the paper’s abstract reads. In 2006, Microsoft published Anatomy of a P2P Content Distribution System with Network Coding but by then the existence of a Microsoft equivalent to BitTorrent was public knowledge – Project Avalanche had been born. Named after traditional avalanches that start small but gain massive momentum as more snow (or peers) get involved, Avalanche claimed it would improve on BitTorrent in a number of ways. At the time, however, BitTorrent’s Bram Cohen criticized the project technically and concluded that it amounted to vaporware. But today in 2015, almost ten years on, things have definitely changed. Although there is no confirmation that Avalanche (or the Microsoft Secure Content Downloader as it was once described) is behind the Windows 10 update process option, there’s little doubt that Microsoft will have sharpened its tools. In addition, Microsoft owns patents (1,2) which describe DRM-protected P2P distribution systems which could potentially help to keep any P2P Windows 10 update system secure, a requirement predicted by Avalanche years before. “The Avalanche model includes strong security to ensure content providers are uniquely identifiable, and to prevent unauthorized parties from offering content for download. The project also ensures content downloaded to each client machine is exactly the same as the content shared by the content provider,†Microsoft said. Only time will tell if Microsoft takes the distributed update route for its eventual release of Windows 10, and whether avalanches or torrents cascade into (and out of) homes worldwide as a result. https://torrentfreak.com/bittorrent-style-updates-revealed-in-leaked-windows-10-150316/

  21. Physical counterfeiters can receive up to 10 years in jail under UK copyright law but should online pirates receive the same maximum punishment? A new report commissioned by the government reveals that many major rightsholders believe they should, but will that have the desired effect? A new study commissioned by the UK Intellectual Property Office (IPO) examines whether the criminal sanctions for copyright infringement available under the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 (CDPA 1988) are currently proportionate and correct, or whether they should be amended. While the Digital Economy Act 2010 increased financial penalties up to a maximum of £50,000, in broad terms the main ‘offline’ copyright offenses carry sentences of up to 10 years in jail while those carried out online carry a maximum of ‘just’ two. In 2014, Mike Weatherley MP, then IP advisor to the Prime Minister, said that this disparity “sends all the wrong messagesâ€, a position that was supported by many major rightsholders. The current report examines data from 2006 to 2013 alongside stakeholder submissions, both for and against a change in the law. “Many industry bodies argue that higher penalties are necessary and desirable and that there is no justification for treating physical and online crime differently. Other stakeholders suggest that these offenses are in fact different, and raise concerns about a possible ‘chilling effect’ on innovation,†the report reads. One key finding is that court data from 2006-2013 reveals that prosecutions under the CDPA have actually been going down and that online offenses actually constitute “a small, and apparently decreasing, fraction of copyright prosecution activity as a whole.†In fact, the Crown Prosecution Service didn’t bring a single case under the online provisions of the CDPA 1988 during the period examined. “While there have been prosecutions during recent years, these have either used alternative legislation (such as common law conspiracy to defraud) or been directed at clarifying the civil law position in the European Court,†the report notes. “It is not clear that alternative legislation provides a satisfactory solution. By definition it does nothing to improve case law or understanding of the copyright issues.†This lack of case law is seen as problematic by the Federation Against Copyright Theft. In recent years FACT has stepped away from public prosecutions under copyright law in order to pursue private prosecutions under other legislation such as the Fraud Act. “Public prosecutors have been reluctant for years to take online cases, not wishing to be the first to attempt what might end in failure I guess. As a result there is no case law,†says FACT Director-General Kieron Sharp. “We need to still prosecute these cases so we often take them forward as private criminal prosecutions. However, these are serious cases and the two-year maximum sentence available downgrades the case in the eyes of the court who in any event cannot impose a sentence reflective of the crime. “We therefore follow other legislation and thus ourselves do not establish case law, which leads the prosecutor in the next case to again dismiss the chances of success.†For its part the Open Rights Group’s submission cautions against overly aggressive punishments that not only have the potential to affect those operating on the boundaries, but also those seeking to innovate. “The proposals could have a larger effect on specific groups that operate at the limits of current copyright legislation, but are not mass infringers and would not be prosecuted under fraud,†ORG explains. “Many internet innovators, prosumers, online creative communities that create non-profit derivative works, fandom producers, etc. All these people – many of whom technically breach copyright in their activities – could find themselves facing prison sentences if making available carried a maximum sentence of ten years.†So should the law be changed? As usual, the answer is far from straightforward. “The argument put forward by the Open Rights Group and others, that physical and online offenses are not the same, is persuasive. However, the fact remains that these two offenses end up having a very similar detrimental effect on the rights holders, and the question remains whether the maximum penalties are set at an appropriate level,†the report notes. “Whilst it is true to say that a consumer (or ‘prosumer’) can rapidly distribute content internationally without any criminal intent, it is also true that the logistical barriers to criminal activity are much lower online; the amount of investment a criminally-minded person needs to make in order to generate a serious level of disruption and harm is far lower. “The absence of a suitable penalty for serious cases of online infringement (which are likely to be very much in the minority) is currently creating a distortion because it results in alternative legislation being used. Alternatives may be justifiable under the circumstances, but appear less well suited to the crime.†Another question addressed by the report is whether a 10 year sentence would act as a deterrent. Awkwardly for the government it points out that following the increase to a maximum 10 year sentence for physical piracy in 2002, prosecutions actually rose before falling away in 2008. “[The] data available on recent online offending is at such a low level that there is no deterrent case that can be made from it,†the report adds. But while a change in the law is certainly preferred by some, there are alternatives. The report points to the takedown initiatives currently being employed by major rightsholders, including website blockades via local ISPs. Also upcoming is the Creative Content UK program which will see the public warned and educated when they’re spotted infringing copyright online. Only time will tell whether a 10 year sentence will be seen as appropriate, but safeguards that only the most serious of crimes are viewed as worthy of a maximum sentence will have to be put in place, and that will certainly be more easily said than done. Penalty Fair? Study of criminal sanctions for copyright infringement available under the CDPA 1988 – is available here (pdf). It’s a long read but definitely worth the effort. https://torrentfreak.com/is-10-years-in-jail-the-answer-to-online-pirates-150307/

  25. Giganews has booked another significant victory in its ongoing copyright battle with adult publisher Perfect 10. Detailing "pervasive failures" by the publisher, its attorneys and its witnesses, a court in California says that Perfect 10 violated numerous court orders and failed to comply with discovery. Adult magazine publisher Perfect 10 is one of the most litigious publishers in the online space. The company has made a business out of suing Internet services for alleged copyright infringement and in recent years has targeted Google, Amazon, MasterCard and Visa, RapidShare and Depositfiles, and even hosting providers LeaseWeb and OVH. While Perfect 10 has secured several private settlements, court victories in contested cases have not been forthcoming. The publisher had hoped of success in its current and prolonged legal battle with Usenet provider Giganews but things are not going well. In a November 2014 ruling the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California found that Giganews was not liable for the infringing activities of its users. The provider now has further reason to celebrate thanks to a ruling from the same Court. Rather than simply roll over under pressure from Perfect 10’s legal team, Giganews put up a vigorous and comprehensive defense to the publisher’s claims. During 2014 Giganews sought and obtained several discovery orders requiring the adult publisher to produce potentially huge amounts of data relating to its claim against the provider, including but not limited to: – Information on all allegedly infringing URLs / Usenet Message IDs – Information on all Perfect 10 advertising since Jan 2008 – All IP / email addresses used by Perfect 10 / affiliates – All copyright registrations and ownership documents – Details of every author / photographer of every work in the case – All evidence of direct and indirect infringement – Perfect 10 server logs and website metrics – Documents detailing all previous Perfect 10 litigation plus settlements In a 56-page ruling handed down last Thursday, Magistrate Judge Stephen J. Hillman details a laundry list of non-compliance by Perfect 10, from partial to complete failure to provide the requested documents to “misleading†representations and “intentional†non-compliance. Perfect 10 didn’t even produce evidence related to the infringement at the heart of the case. “Perfect 10 failed to produce any evidence supporting its claim of direct infringement,†the Judge writes, noting that it also “failed to produce any evidence supporting its claim of indirect infringement.†While the Court dedicates many pages of its ruling to the failures of Perfect 10 to comply with its orders, it comes as little surprise that the company did not disclose the private conclusions to its earlier litigation. “Perfect 10 failed to produce its complaints from all its earlier lawsuits..[..]..and also failed to produce its settlement agreements from earlier lawsuits,†the ruling reads. Even complaints Perfect 10 relied upon for its damages opinion were omitted. Perfect 10 witnesses were also singled out for criticism, alongside the company’s counsel who did not do enough to bring them into line. “The fact that the Perfect 10 affiliated witnesses kept making the same mistakes over and over shows that Perfect 10’s counsel was not adequately supervising their efforts to ensure full compliance with the Court’s Orders,†the Judge explains. “In the peculiar circumstances of Perfect 10’s conduct in this case, the Court can properly hold Perfect 10 and its attorneys responsible for the Perfect 10-affiliated witnesses’ conduct.†In conclusion, Giganews won this one big and Perfect 10 are now going to have to pick up the bill. “[Giganews] presented this Court with extensive evidence showing unjustified discovery noncompliance, numerous violations of this Court’s orders, and pervasive failures by Perfect 10, its attorneys, and the Perfect 10-affiliated witnesses. The court will proceed to determine the reasonable amount of monetary sanctions, and whether they should be assessed against Perfect 10 and/or its counsel,†Judge Hillman concludes. In a statement sent to TorrentFreak, Ron Yokubaitis, co-Chief Executive Officer of Giganews, says his company welcomes the ruling. “From the beginning, we rejected the veracity of Perfect 10’s allegations and believed strongly in our position. As a result, we forced Perfect 10 to litigate this case on the merits,†Yokubaitis says. “Perfect 10’s response to our approach was to engage in a pattern of systematic abuse of the discovery process and outright disregard of the court’s orders,†added Yokubaitis. “We are pleased with the magistrate judge’s ruling and we look forward to the Court’s final determination on monetary sanctions to be assessed.†The big question now is whether this legal mauling and promised monetary sanctions will lead Perfect 10 down a different path on potential future litigation. Giganews has certainly shown its teeth, so ‘softer’ targets could be on the horizon. http://torrentfreak.com/giganews-wins-perfect-10-copyright-battle-150209/
