nakedmolerat:
hellonearthisman: I was thinking on doing an arts project called on the edge of torrents, where I would only download the legal sections of illegal torrents, basically collecting the nfo files and not the main movies. This would generate a false positive that would mean I would have to go to court to defend these and that just became too costly in reality.
Might look at creating a http://www.kickstarter.com/ project to raise some funding for this conceptual work.


you have my support and money.

I wouldn't want to be the one to test this out in court though..
