I no longer use Bit Torrent, but do thank these guys for forcing old media's hand!
Step 1: Buy an account from a hosting server in USA.
Step 2: Install your own proxy server.
Step 3: Enjoy hulu and others :-)
I'm not that far from Witopia's servers (Toronto>NY being the closest), but from my experiance the added latency can be killer.
Edit: Under the law that makes "import or export" a right exclusive to the copyright holder, apparently. Thanks for the correction!
Uploading or downloading works protected by copyright without the authority of the copyright owner is an infringement of the copyright owner's exclusive rights of reproduction and/or distribution.
Several exclusive rights typically attach to the holder of a copyright:
- to produce copies or reproductions of the work and to sell those copies (mechanical rights; including, sometimes, electronic copies: distribution rights)
- to import or export the work
An item is considered an export whether or not it is leaving the United States temporarily, if it is leaving the United State but is not for sale (a gift), or if it is going to a wholly owned U.S. subsidiary in a foreign country.
(I personally think this is all bullshit when applied to the Internet, but my opinion doesn't matter.)
International Use. Hulu's goal is to bring you as much Content as is legally available. That said, we are limited by the rights that our content licensors grant to us. Using technologies to access the Content from territories where Hulu does not have rights is prohibited.
2) Run this from your laptop/desktop:
ssh -f -L8118:localhost:8118 my_username@my_remote_server sleep 36000
Oh, maybe step 1.5 should have been to turn off privoxy's logging, both because it could log something private, and because log files aren't needed in this case. I also disable privoxy's ad blocking because it breaks the NYTimes.
In addition to "relocating" you, this has the effect of allowing one to use unencrypted wireless APs in cafes and only worry about the same amount of network sniffing one might worry about from one's own ISP. This is why I decided on this set up to begin with, in fact.
The South Park guys caught on, and with every single episode available on their site, why would you even bother to pirate the episodes?
Side note: Even when people were pirating their stuff, they were just happy that people liked the show.
I really think South Park gets it. 24 hours after a new episode airs, they put it online. That's pretty damn reasonable.
If torrents can up a show within 20 minutes, surely the show's creators can do it as well. If you are upping the thing anyways...I see no reason why your fans should have to wait an extra day.
Still, I give them great credit.
agreed with the main point though
However we've just moved to 64bit Linux Flash 10 alpha on RHEL at work - which I suspect might change my impression. It has Z axis issues at least which the current 32bit one doesn't.
