    Torrents banned in AUS

    I guess most of you have got this news about torrents being banned in Aus. This might come as a major blow to me as I have been using Torrents for quite a long time for several purpose.

    I might have to use my VPN now which I bought this Black Friday and put it to good use.

    Someone was also talking about changing DNS to access those site which are being blocked. What is your line of action?

    You're talking about copyright piracy like it's some kind of necessity to your survival. How about you just pay for content instead of stealing it?


    I'll let this thread run but as soon as people start talking about ways to break the law, it's gone.

    Seedbox + private Linux tracker. Or vpn + public Linux tracker + dns

    This is not something I might consider necessary for my survival but yes, it might be necessary for my professional life as I have to go through a lot of books which are too costly for me to buy considering I am still a student. As soon as I reach that buying power, I'll resort to buying the original content.

    Can you explain, how the second one works (vpn + public Linux tracker + dns)?

    Can we ban the user instead of deleting the thread?

    We're not in Australia. I'm not sure what the problem is?

    None of those are illegal.

    I need loads of shit for my professional life. Some are too expensive but I'm not going to go steal them. Go get a job or a loan.

    More stupid behaviour from the Ozzie government.

    I think most people would be more than happy to pay for content if it could be delivered as easily as what Plex/Sonarr etc deliver. Afaik, there's nothing that delivers that level - yet.

    Honestly I think this is more a move to boost Foxtel's dwindling numbers...good luck with that one

    Australia makes weird laws, like that time they banned small boobs.

    Having said that I've had a seedbox for an eternity, so much faster and saved my bandwidth cap back when that was a real thing.

    Oh it's just blocking piracy sites, I thought they were actually banning torrents (which would be stupid to attempt). Thread title is misleading.

    I suspect given the option, they'd like to do that.

    Boo hoo. That's what a student loan and academic discount are for.

    PS - happy for you guys to discuss the ban, but let's not go into specifics about what it is you may or may not be doing, eh?
