Developer turns from game keeper to poacher

Written by Nick Farell


Industry should have listened
A developer who invented an anti-piracy system which was rejected by the big content companies has turned it into a pretty snappy music download site.

According to TorrentFreak the developer called Dominic says he has created an anti-piracy system which he believes has the potential to wipe out a significant amounts of online piracy. He thinks his “patent-pending anti-piracy platform” could “eliminate up to 90% of music, film, TV, software and video game piracy” online.

But when he showed it to the MPAA, Paramount, 20th Century Fox, AFACT and Village Roadshow, and the IFPI they told him to sling his hook. Dominic also got cross when he discovered that most of the pirate sites were funded by advertising from many of the big content studios so he has decided to protest until something is done about it.

Turning from gamekeeper to poacher, Dominic has transformed his anti-piracy platform into a music search engine and download site. Dominic said his platform has the capability to index, crawl, monitor and analyse any page/site it comes across, and further claims that “this is the fastest and easiest way to download any song you can think of, on the web.” He said he will take down his site when organisations stop advertising on pirated sites and stop funding piracy, and take responsibility for the problem. "I have a platform that has the ability to counter almost all forms of piracy today, and will be happy to take this site down,” he said.

You can have a look at the site here.
