BayTSP and Megapath conspiracy, they should hang!

Posted by Markus | 9 years ago on Wednesday 04 June 2008 15:12:55 to be more exact
Over the past few days we have noticed an increase of traffic, closer inspection revealed that a whole range of ip's was downloading random pages from the site. After running a couple of tests and monitoring for a few days we've noticed that the involved ip's all belong to BayTSP, an infamous anti piracy group that seems to be attacking us in a DDOS kind of way. At a peak their servers (over 5000 of them) request numerous pages in an attempt to deny access to legit users. While this is no problem for us as we have a hardware firewall with DOS detection, other and more smaller sites could go down because of this.

When we contacted Megapath, the ISP of BayTSP and explained the situation the asshole operator (his name was Mike) told me to fuck off because the ip's I've sent didn't belong to them. While running a whois query on the ip's it's pretty clear to whom those addresses belong. Apparently BayTSP has running so many servers that are being hosted by Megapath that they simply don't give a shit about our formal complaint. In fact this is the second time that I had to call them, last time was in January when I got the same response. So what is it that we can do about this legally? Well, we are considering legal action against both companies for sabotage and damages that were caused in terms of bandwidth costs. We have already blocked all ip's that we could trace to them and I'm sure that more will be added to the firewall soon.

If we take legal action there is a good chance that they will suffer a great blow as we have proof of the attacks in the form of log files with over 5000 ip's that belong to BayTSP and Megapath. In the next few days we will discuss our options with our legal team and take it further from there.

Stay tuned for more updates in the days ahead.

so can you show some examples from those logs please.

Those criminaly acting anti p2p guys like Media Defender, Media Sentry, BayTSP and how ever they are named must be exposed as publicly as possible.

While me does not condone any violaton of valid laws by "pirates" I do neither think it should be OK for those guys and the ContentIndustry that pays them to violate laws either!
two wrongs does not make one right!
And specially not the wrongdoings of the contentindustry!

I think legal action would be the appropriate approach to this. You could make a quick buck off these assholes as well.

And get back in touch with that Mike guy, sue him for being an asshole operator who clearly has no intention of doing his 9-5 job properly.

I don't know about you, but does this kind of monitoring smack as legal? It doesn't to me... Kind of concerning, don't you think?

The only way to shut BayTSP down is for virus writer to make a virus that acts as a torrent / lirewire client on random computers up loading pieces of files protected by BayTsp. Once they accuse a few unsuspecting lawyers and bankers on piracy they will get sued to death. Plus they would never now which downloads were people and which ones virus
