I'm a big fan of pirate bay website as it's one of the very few sites that provides a verified torrents, guys behind that website believe the net should give people free access to media files.(Thumps up!) I really wish I could fly and protest with them.
Swedish piracy row gathers peace


The row between supporters of a Swedish website accused of piracy and the nation's authorities is escalating.

A raid on The Pirate Bay site by Swedish police is thought to have been the catalyst for hack attacks on official websites.

The attacks are being investigated by the Swedish security service, its domestic intelligence agency.

Protesters took to the streets of Stockholm on Saturday to show their support for the BitTorrent search site.

  1. I know but it's not necessary that all bad is just bad.
    Most of the world software aren't for us, we aren't even a market place for software vendors and few people can afford and willing to pay for licensed software.

    In software I try not to use any proprietary software and I guess I've never used any since ages (except IE for testing) but in Movies field I really cannot afford purchasing any original DVD and I cannot afford watching every movie at theater but I can easily fetch all movies I want from the net.

  2. You can justify it all you like. Doesn't make it right.
    I also believe software should be free, like water, air, education, food ...etc. But till all of those become free, we can't take the work that took people years of thier lives and just conveniently enjoy it for free.
    The arabic region is a MAJOR growing software market. Just look at all the companies doing thier best to support arabic. The only thing stopping the rest is ..... yes you guessed it right, PIRACY!
    When anyone steals a copy of software, he's depriving others from getting that software because companies move away from trying to support a highly pirate-infested country
    Anyway, I don't want to give a lecture here... :) Piracy=bad ;-)

القضاء: لا دليل على أن مقتحمي الكونغرس خططوا لقتل مشرعين

أكد محققو وزارة العدل الأمريكية أنهم لم يجدوا حتى الآن أي دليل على أن أنصار دونالد ترامب الذين هاجموا مبنى الكونغرس الأسبوع الماضي خططوا لاحتجاز مسؤولين منتخبين وقتلهم. يأتي ذلك في الوقت الذي أُوقفت فيه الشرطة، الجمعة، رجلا مسلّحا في واشنطن خلال محاولته عبور إحدى نقاط التفتيش في محيط مبنى الكونغرس حيث ستقام الأربعاء مراسم تنصيب جو بايدن. في ذات الوقت أفادت شبكة NBC الأمريكية، بأن مكتب التحقيقات الفيدرالي يحقق في إمكانية تمويل حكومات أو جماعات اقتحام مبنى الكونغرس. وقالت مصادر للشبكة: "المكتب يحقق في مدفوعات "بيتكوين" بقيمة 500 ألف دولار، يبدو أنه تم تحويلها من قبل مواطن فرنسي، لشخصيات ومجموعات رئيسية يمينية قبل اندلاع أعمال الشغب". وفي جلسة استماع في محكمة أريزونا بشأن اعتقال أحد مثيري الشغب جاكوب تشانسلي الذي يؤمن بنظرية المؤامرة ومن أتباع الحركة اليمينية المتطرفة "كيو-آنون"، تراجع المدعون الفيدراليون عن اتهامات سابقة بأن أنصار ترامب كانوا يخططون "لاحتجاز مسؤولين منتخبين وقتلهم" في هجوم السادس من كانون الثاني/ يناير في واشنطن. ع

Saddam's novel to be published next week

AMMAN, Jordan: Saddam Hussein's family will publish next week a novel written by the ousted Iraqi leader before the US-led war on Iraq, his daughter said on Friday. "Ekhroj minha ya mal'un" whose title could be translated into "Get out, damned one" tells the story of a man called Ezekiel who plots to overthrow a town's sheik, but is defeated in his quest by the sheik's daughter and an Arab warrior. The story is apparently a metaphor for a Zionist-Christian plot against Arabs and Muslims. Ezekiel is meant to symbolize the Jews. Raghad Saddam Hussein said her father finished the novel on March 18, 2003 -- a day before the US-led war on Iraq began -- and had expressed a wish to publish the book under his name. The three other novels he wrote were simply signed "Its author." "It was my father's will to publish this book," Raghad said in a telephone interview.
