Hi,

A few weeks ago I read about a website that would scan your music collection for illegally downloaded materal.
I've tried searching for it again, and cannot find it.

Does anyone know the one I am talking about?
I'm not sure if it's an online service, or an application that you can download.
I just wanted more information on it, how it works etc - but can't even remember the name of it to research it.

Thanks.

Dan

And a website is going to know the difference between a FLAC file you have legally format shifted from a CD you own and one you just downloaded from the 'net exactly how??.....

Was it a NZ website or a US one, as our laws are different as to what is illegal, so it may not be relevant in NZ. I believe NZ law allows for media to be content shifted, eg from CD to MP3 player, so you can listen to it on different devices, but other countries have different laws.

I looked and couldn't find it, but I think I know how it works, so I knocked this one up for you.

10 REM Copyright Infringement Detector
20 INPUT "Enter the name of your music file: ", A$
30 PRINT "Processing..."
40 PRINT "This file is an infringing file."
50 GOTO 10

You do not have permission to read my code, and if you do I shall prosecute you to the full extent of the law.

Maybe iTunes Match? Announced at an Apple conference a couple of months back, it made the news as a way of scanning and "legitimising' your illegal music collection.

I haven't read your code, but if I did I might find it to be a little basic.

If it's a US web site you didn't legally format shift anything....It's all illegal there as far as I know. (Correct me if I'm wrong, please)

Yeah, because they have no interest in claiming everything is illegal Innocent

If you dont accept their T&Cs, it directs you here:

DtecNet was formed by a Danish anti piracy lobby group and does work for the RIAA.

I suspect their "detection" code looks quite a lot like the code Salty posted earlier!
