  1. Developers considering adding a torrent search engine to their portfolio should proceed with caution, especially if they value their income streams. Following a complaint from the MPAA one developer is now facing a six month wait for PayPal to unfreeze thousands in funds, the vast majority related to other projects. For several years PayPal has been trying to limit how much business it does with sites involved with copyright infringement. Unsurprisingly torrent sites are high up on the payment processors “do not touch†list. For that reason it is quite rare to see PayPal offered as a donation method on the majority of public sites as these are spotted quite quickly and often shut down. It’s unclear whether PayPal does its own ‘scouting’ but the company is known to act upon complaints from copyright holders as part of the developing global “Follow the Money†anti-piracy strategy. This week Andrew Sampson, the software developer behind new torrent search engine ‘Strike‘, discovered that when you have powerful enemies, bad things can happen. With no advertising on the site, Sampson added his personal PayPal account in case anyone wanted to donate. Quickly coming to the conclusion that was probably a bad idea, Sampson removed the button and carried on as before. One month later PayPal contacted him with bad news. “We are contacting you as we have received a report that your website https://getstrike.net is currently infringing upon the intellectual property of Motion Picture Association of America, Inc.,†PayPal began. “Such infringement also violates PayPal’s Acceptable Use Policy. Therefore your account has been permanently limited.†It isn’t clear why PayPal waited for a month after donations were removed from Strike to close Sampson’s six-year-old account but the coder believes that his public profile (he doesn’t hide his real identity) may have led to his issues. “It seems someone at the MPAA realized I took donations using PayPal from some of my other LEGAL open source projects (like https://github.com/Codeusa/Borderless-Gaming) and was able to get the email of my account,†the dev told TF. While Sampson had regularly been receiving donations from users of his other open source projects, he says he only received $200 from users of Strike, a small proportion of the $2,500 in his personal account when PayPal shut it down. “That money was earned through legitimate freelance work and was going to be used specifically for my rent/car payment so it kind of sucks,†he says. While it’s going to be a painful 180 day wait for Sampson to get his money back from PayPal, the lack of options for receiving donations on his other projects could prove the most damaging moving forward. Sampson does accept Bitcoin, but it’s nowhere near as user-friendly as PayPal. Of course, this is all part of the MPAA’s strategy. By making sites like Strike difficult to run, they hope that developers like Sampson will reconsider their positions and move on. And in this case they might just achieve their aims. “I’ve allowed someone else to manage the site for the time being. It will operate as it normally does but I need a bit to clear my head and don’t want anything to do with it as it’s become quite stressful,†Sampson says. “I think the MPAA is playing low ball tactics against a developer who just wanted a better search engine. I don’t condone piracy, but I sure as hell understand why it happens.†https://torrentfreak.com/mpaa-complained-so-we-seized-your-funds-paypal-says-150517/

  4. But those conversations only lasted four days. Prior to landing on the idea for Far Cry 4, Ubisoft designers considered a more "traditional" sequel to 2012'sFar Cry 3, something that would have amounted to what producer Dan Hay calls Far Cry 3.5. This game would have expanded on Far Cry 3's story and locations, but Ubisoft needed less than a week to decide that this was not the right path to go down. "We definitely had the option of making a 3.5, of making a choice to just stay in the same location with the same characters," Hay said in a post on the UbiBlog. "We talked about the idea of taking Jason's story and growing it, maybe figuring out a way to bring Vaas back. And very quickly we realized that it wasn't going to be a thing that we wanted to do. So we stopped that conversation and said, that's the end of the 3.5 conversation--which lasted probably about four days." What separates Far Cry 4 from Far Cry 3, outside of its new story and setting, is its "we want it all" design, Hay says. This deliberate approach has resulted in a number of franchise-firsts, like the ability to ride elephants and fly. "We like the fact that we’re a little bit Wild West," Hay said. "We like the fact that somebody's going to be able to kick out an idea that people will think is way too much. And then somebody else goes, 'Maybe that's why you should do it. Maybe that's what makes sense.'" Far Cry 4 launches on November 18 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC. Ubisoft recently announced that it's targeting 1080p resolution for the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game, though final figures have not yet been revealed.

  5. Apology issued after "misspeaking" that Assassin's Creed Untiy's resolution was unified "to avoid debates". Publisher Ubisoft is looking to draw a line under the controversy that was triggered because one of its developers said Assassin's Creed Unity's resolution was made equal across consoles "to avoid debates". Writing on the official Ubisoft blog, spokesperson Gary Steinman said "let’s be clear up front: Ubisoft does not constrain its games. We would not limit a game’s resolution. And we would never do anything to intentionally diminish anything we’ve produced or developed." The next-gen game is locked at a 900p resolution across PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which Vincent Pontbriand, a senior producer at Ubisoft Montreal, explained was because the dev team "decided to lock them [the game] at the same specs to avoid all the debates and stuff". Ubisoft moved quick to deny this in a statement released to the media, before it issued another note suggesting the game's specs were not final. The publisher has not explained how a senior producer misspoke about "avoiding debates", but nevertheless Pontbriand has apologised for what he now deems as an inaccurate statement. “I simply chose the wrong words when talking about the game’s resolution, and for that I’m sorry.†He added: “We’ve spent four years building the best game we could imagine. Why would we ever do anything to hold it back?†The Ubisoft blog, which you can read here, goes on to detail why the development team did not prioritise resolution and frame-rate.

  6. The story of the Carter Family is not so much about an influential musical act but a dynasty that spans the history of country music for almost 90 years. The original members — A.P. Carter, his wife Sara, and his sister-in-law Maybelle — were one of country music's earliest superstars during the 1920s and 1930s and became known for such legendary songs as "Keep on the Sunny Side," "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" and "Wildwood Flower." After the original group disbanded in the early 1940s, Maybelle and her daughters continued the family's musical legacy, which was even furthered by the union of June Carter and Johnny Cash. Now a new documentary, The Winding Stream (watch the trailer below) directed by Beth Harrington, traces the history of the family, from the early musical roots in Maces Spring, Virginia, to the present day. The film — which premiered this week at New York City's Walter Reade Theater as part of the Film Society of Lincoln Center's Sound + Vision series — features interviews with past and living members of the Carter and Cash families. Mingled with the history are musical performances of Carter Family songs by Rosanne Cash, Sheryl Crow, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Kris Kristofferson, the late George Jones, and the Carolina Chocolate Drops. Here are nine of countless fascinating facts we learned from The Winding Stream's New York premiere. A.P. met Sara through door-to-door sales. According to A.P. and Sara Carter's granddaughter Rita Forrester, A.P. was selling fruit trees door to door in southwest Virginia when he stumbled upon a yard where he heard a woman named Sara Dougherty sing and play the autoharp. Impressed, A.P. introduced himself, and Sara told him she was selling dishes. "He told her that if she came with him, he would take the entire set," said Forrester. They married in 1915. The original group's first record sales were a surprise even to them. In the summer of 1927, the trio made the arduous trip from Virginia to Bristol, Tennessee, to record for Ralph Peer of the Victor Talking Machine Company, who was looking for new talent to record in his temporary studio above a hat company. A.P. wasn't always active when it came to singing ("We just let him sing when he got ready," Maybelle once recalled); he wasn't even present when Maybelle and Sara performed "Single Girl, Married Girl." After the sessions, they received a check and returned home to resume their normal lives. A few months later, a record store started to sell the recordings by the "Carter Family" — A.P. didn't even know the records were out. The Carter Family was Fleetwood Mac before Fleetwood Mac. Despite their success and harmonious image, there was drama behind the scenes within the original group, particularly the relationship between A.P. and Sara. This was due to A.P.'s travels in search of new material, leaving Sara neglected at home. She later fell in love with A.P.'s cousin, Coy Bayes, and they eventually married. Despite the divorce, A.P. and Sara continued with the group. The Carter Family's driving force was a songcatcher. A.P. would travel to find new songs — he collaborated with an African-American guitarist named Lesley Riddle and the two collected whatever tunes came their way. A.P. would later jot down the tunes on paper and then present them to Sara and Maybelle. A Mexican radio station introduced Johnny Cash to the music of his future wife, June Carter. John Brinkley — who was famously known for transplanting goat testicles into human males to cure impotence — started border radio station XER in Mexico. This high-wattage station broadcasted the performances by the Carter Family — which at that point included the Carter Sisters — and gave their music even greater exposure. One of the listeners was a boy from Arkansas named Johnny Cash, who ironically heard one of the youngest members of the act who would later become his wife — June Carter. America's day of infamy squashed the family's chance at even greater recognition. A cover story about the family was scheduled to appear in an issue of LIFE magazine, which would have brought them larger publicity and attention. Unfortunately, it was around the time that the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941, and the LIFE story never ran. Guitar pioneer Maybelle Carter found fame twice. After the breakup of the first Carter Family in the early 1940s, "Mother" Maybelle Carter continued to perform music with daughters June, Anita and Helen — the Carter Sisters — who together backed Johnny Cash. Her innovative guitar technique became known as the "Carter Scratch," in which she played the lead and rhythm parts simultaneously. As a solo artist, Maybelle became popular on the college circuit during the counterculture 1960s. At one point, she was interested in covering the 1970 hit "One Toke Over the Line" by Brewer and Shipley when her relatives told her what the song was really about. Maybelle was later featured on the 1972 album Will the Circle Be Unbroken by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, singing the Carter Family classic "Keep on the Sunny Side." It was love at first sight for Johnny and June. One of the most poignant moments from the film is undoubtedly an interview with the Man in Black shortly before his death in 2003. He recalled first meeting Maybelle and his daughters and being especially smitten by the spunky and vivacious June. "I'm gonna marry you someday," he told her. They did several years later in 1968. The Carter Family dynasty lives on. The original Carter Family members have long passed away (A.P. in 1960, followed by Maybelle in 1978, and Sara in 1979), but the music lives on, especially through their descendants. The late Janette Carter, daughter of A.P. and Sara, honored the original trio's memory by establishing the Carter Fold in Hiltons, Virginia, which is known for its Saturday night concerts of traditional country music. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJDwlNLKUxo
  7. Last week The Expendables 3 leaked online and thousands shared it illegally. While most sat in the shadows, David Pierce, an editor at The Verge, admitted to engaging in what amounts to the criminal distribution of an unreleased copyright work. Is it now OK to confess to jailable offenses as long as they're piracy-related? Last week’s leak of The Expendables 3 was a pretty big event in the piracy calendar and as TF explained to inquiring reporters, that is only achieved by getting the right mix of ingredients. First and foremost, the movie was completely unreleased meaning that private screenings aside, it had never hit a theater anywhere in the world. Getting a copy of a movie at this stage is very rare indeed. Secondly, the quality of the leaked DVD was very good indeed. Third, and we touched on this earlier, are the risks involved in becoming part of the online distribution mechanism for something like this. Potentially unfinished copies of yet-to-be-released flicks can be a very serious matter indeed, with custodial sentences available to the authorities. And yet this week, David Pierce, Assistant Managing Editor at The Verge, wrote an article in which he admitted torrenting The Expendables 3 via The Pirate Bay. PIRATE CONFESSIONS – UNCUT “The Expendables 3 comes out August 15th in thousands of theaters across America. I watched it Friday afternoon on my MacBook Air on a packed train from New York City to middle-of-nowhere Connecticut. I watched it again on the ride back. And I’m already counting down the days until I can see it in IMAX,†he wrote. Pierce’s article, and it’s a decent read, talks about how the movie really needs to be seen on the big screen. It’s a journey into why piracy can act as promotion and how the small screen experience rarely compensates for seeing this kind of movie in the “big show†setting. Pierce is a great salesman and makes a good case but that doesn’t alter the fact that he just admitted to committing what the authorities see as a pretty serious crime. The Family Entertainment and Copyright Act of 2005 refers to it as “the distribution of a work being prepared for commercial distribution, by making it available on a computer network accessible to members of the public, if such person knew or should have known that the work was intended for commercial distribution.†The term “making it available†refers to uploading and although one would like to think that punishments would be reserved only for initial leakers (if anyone), the legislation fails to specify. It seems that merely downloading and sharing the movie using BitTorrent could be enough to render a user criminally liable, as this CNET article from 2005 explains. So with the risks as they are, why would Pierce put his neck on the line? Obviously, he wanted to draw attention to the “big screen†points mentioned above and also appreciates plenty of readers. It’s also possible he just wasn’t aware of the significance of the offense. Sadly, our email to Pierce earlier in the week went unanswered so we can’t say for sure. But here’s the thing. There can be few people in the public eye, journalists included, who would admit to stealing clothes from a Paris fashion show in order to promote Versace’s consumer lines when they come out next season. And if we wrote a piece about how we liberated aHonda Type R prototype from the Geneva Motor Show in order to boost sales ahead of its consumer release next year, we’d be decried as Grand Theft Auto’ists in need of discipline. What this seems to show is that in spite of a decade-and-a-half’s worth of “piracy is theft†propaganda, educated and eloquent people such as David Pierce still believe that it is not, to the point where pretty serious IP crimes can be confessed to in public. At the very least, the general perception is that torrenting The Expendables 3 is morally detached from picking up someone’s real-life property and heading for the hills. And none of us would admit to the latter, would we? Hollywood and the record labels will be furious that this mentality persists after years of promoting the term “intellectual property†and while Lionsgate appear to have picked their initial targets (and the FBI will go after the initial leakers), the reality is that despite the potential for years in jail, it’s extremely unlikely the feds will be turning up at the offices of The Verge to collar Pierce. Nor will they knock on the doors of an estimated two million other Expendables pirates either. And everyone knows it. As a result, what we have here is a crazy confession brave article from Pierce which underlines that good movies are meant to be seen properly and that people who pirate do go on to become customers if the product is right. And, furthermore, those customers promote that content to their peers, such as the guy on the train who looked over Pierce’s shoulder when he was viewing his pirate booty. “He won’t be the last person I tell to go see The Expendables 3 when it hits theaters in August,†Pierce wrote. “And I’ll be there with them, opening night. I know the setlist now, I know all the songs by heart, but I still want to see the show.†Pierce’s initial piracy was illegal, no doubt, but when all is said and done (especially considering his intent to promote and invest in the movie) it hardly feels worthy of a stay in the slammer. I venture that the majority would agree – and so the cycle continues. http://torrentfreak.com/can-we-publicly-confess-to-online-piracy-crimes-140803/
  8. Following an episode that built slowly and without much tension to its explosive conclusion, the producers of Extant took a slightly different tact with ‘Shelter’, dropping breadcrumbs and character details along the way to its own impactful ending while the threat of a raiding ISEA SWAT team lingered in the background to provide ample tension. Panicked and on the run, Molly and her family have fled their home on the say-so of Sam (Camryn Manheim), Molly’s trusted confidant and Doctor. Given little time to prepare, Molly (Halle Berry) and John (Goran Visnjic) flee without grabbing their passports or cleaning out their bank accounts. John’s decision to disable Ethan’s tracking chip seems to be the only precaution that the couple takes as they make their way to a remote island where Molly’s father, Quinn (Louis Gossett Jr.) lives. We sense tension between Molly and Quinn at the start, but it seems typical – she doesn’t see her father enough and he seems a little cool to her husband. Quinn is warm to Ethan, though, treating him as any grandfather would treat his grandson. There is no distance because the boy is a humanech. At least not at first. While on the island, John voices his disbelief over the situation that they find themselves in. He doesn’t understand why the ISEA would so aggressively look to lock Molly down, but of course, neither he or Molly have a good idea of what is happening behind the scenes with Yasumoto (Hiroyuki Sanada). Neither did we, save for the vague sense of evil that the man put off when on-screen, but in this episode, we got a bit more confirmation as Yasumoto’s desperation increased following a lab experiment on a substance that had come from a meteor killed one of the scientists working on the project as Yasumoto looked on. “Life sustaining substanceâ€, Yasumoto calls it while talking to Sparks (Michael O’Neill), kicking things into high gear when he tells him to take care of Sam and bring Molly in to extract her baby, setting up a mobile operating room for the grim task. To Sam’s credit, even while in custody, she is still dedicated to Molly’s aid, dumping a vile of Molly’s blood into the toilet to cover for her, but after she is discovered and her brother is threatened by Sparks, Sams tune begrudgingly changes and she picks a new side. I really thought that Sparks would eliminate Sam, but this allows the conspiracy to deepen and it keeps the very talented Ms. Manheim on a show that could use more standout supporting performances, not less. While Sam is betraying her friend, Molly and John (and for a moment, Marcus) are at her father’s house running a DNA sample to determine exactly what it is that is inside of her while Quinn uses Ethan’s abilities to win a bar game (and a fistful of dollars) down by the docks before the boy throws the game after misunderstanding something that Quinn said. This is where we start to get a better idea of Quinn and Molly’s relationship and why there is distance between them. Quinn is, simply put, ugly toward the boy when he loses, something that may have manifested itself because Quinn took a drink at the bar. When Quinn returns to the house with Ethan – who had seemingly run off – Molly quickly asks her father if he was drinking, filling in those last remaining blanks. There’s a bit of nuance to Gossett’s performance. He doesn’t carry on or scream, he’s just terse as he starts to treat the boy like a thing and not something with emotions and that carries over when John and Molly panic over Ethan’s disappearance. Quinn just isn’t as worried as one would expect, but it’s a subtle difference. He doesn’t go inside to watch TV or crack jokes about the only danger to the boy being that he might get rusted – that line is reserved for the cop that John punches while they search for the boy, a dumb decision that takes John out of the “fieldâ€, as it were. As we see almost immediately, Ethan didn’t run off, he was kidnapped by the ISEA agents who had been lingering on the island, watching and waiting to strike. Once in custody, Ethan is rushed through the woods until the agents find a clearing and disable him with some kind of prod, laying the boy on the dirt before retreating so that he could be used as bait. Why all that was necessary and why the agents couldn’t just rush in to grab Molly is not known. If we’re being cynical, we can say that it’s a hollow act to add a little false jeopardy to the show (logic dictates that nothing bad and everlasting will happen to Ethan, since this is a network TV show and that would be too profoundly sad to move off of in quick order) and a chance to leak that bit about Molly and Quinn’s relationship, but in that Ethan’s recovery seems to occupy a significant chunk of next week’s episode, perhaps we’ll learn the answer next week. We’re also hopeful that we’ll finally learn about what it is that is inside Molly’s stomach and what it, emphatically, means to Yasumoto, because after seeing Molly demonstrate a bit of psychokinesis this week as she lay trapped in a hospital bed, a skill that enabled her to momentarily break free before stumbling into the operating room, we are now more curious than ever before. I’m also eager to see if this show is going to go to some grand place on the sci-fi wheel of awesomeness that we had not anticipated, should Molly learn to harness her new abilities. Add this all together and it seems like Extant is, slowly but surely, starting to scratch the surface of its potential as it keeps us guessing, introduces interesting detours and allows us to walk away from episodes with a sense that we learned something while also keeping us in the dark with regard to the larger picture. Extant airs on Wednesdays @10PM ET on CBS.

  10. Spotify's chief in Australia has hit back at suggestions that reasonably priced streaming services have done little to reduce piracy. “If you look at the main audience that is on Spotify, a lot of them are former pirates," Kate Vale said. "There are teenagers who have potentially never paid for their music before, and probably never will." In the continuing piracy debate one thing has been established beyond reasonable doubt. If an entertainment producer wants to make any dent in piracy, at the very least they’re going to have to make their products readily available at a fair price. This argument has gathered serious momentum in Australia during the past few years, with local consumers regularly criticizing international TV and movie companies for shipping products Down Under months after release and then charging unrealistic prices. But in a recent opinion piece, the principal analyst at local music royalty collection outfit APRA AMCOS disputed whether the arrival of services like Spotify that give consumers what they want, have actually done anything to reduce piracy rates. “Music’s had everything everybody now wants for television shows, such as Game of Thrones, for a couple of years: availability, access and a reasonable price. But the piracy issue still has not been solved,†Andrew Harris wrote. “In fact, results last month from our ongoing national research show that music piracy levels – just as they were almost two years ago – still sit at around the same level as that of movies and television shows.†Noting that Spotify offers content in Australia at the moment it’s released around the world and does so at one of the best prices, Harris arrives at a familiar conclusion. “We’ve heard it all before. No matter how loud the minority might shout it in anger as the answer, it’s impossible to compete with free.†Unsurprisingly that notion doesn’t sit well with Spotify, a company that was designed from the ground up to compete with piracy. Responding to Harris’s assertions in Australian Financial Review, Spotify Australia and New Zealand chief Kate Vale said that the company’s experiences told a different story. “We do believe that access, availability and price does contribute and is the answer and we have proven this in other markets across Europe and particularly in Sweden where we have seen a 30 per cent reduction in piracy since we launched about six years ago,†Vale said. Cracking Sweden was undoubtedly a major feat given the country’s long association with Internet piracy and Vale believes that Spotify now has the right formula to attract the most aggressive file-sharers – and make money from them. “If you look at the main audience that is on Spotify, a lot of them are former pirates. There are teenagers who have potentially never paid for their music before, and probably never will,†she said. “If we can get them on to a service that is free but legal, and they are contributing through our advertising on that free tier, then it is giving money back into the industry that they are just never going to get before.†The ad-supported tier of Spotify is undoubtedly a great incentive to get people to try the service. Globally the company says that it converts around a quarter of free users to premium subscribers but Australia actually tops that with 31%, suggesting that Aussies are happier than most to part with their hard-earned cash in exchange for a good product.

Cracking Sweden was undoubtedly a major feat given the country’s long association with Internet piracy and Vale believes that Spotify now has the right formula to attract the most aggressive file-sharers – and make money from them. “If you look at the main audience that is on Spotify, a lot of them are former pirates. There are teenagers who have potentially never paid for their music before, and probably never will,†she said. “If we can get them on to a service that is free but legal, and they are contributing through our advertising on that free tier, then it is giving money back into the industry that they are just never going to get before.†The ad-supported tier of Spotify is undoubtedly a great incentive to get people to try the service. Globally the company says that it converts around a quarter of free users to premium subscribers but Australia actually tops that with 31%, suggesting that Aussies are happier than most to part with their hard-earned cash in exchange for a good product.
