it DOES work. Blocking casual easy piracy is the key. Blocking stuff by making people take weird routes, makes it harder and that is ALL that counts.
Narcoman, can I ask a naive question. Does Pirate Bay and the like make money or is it a sort of 'we're liberating music for the masses' business model? I've never used a pirate 'vendor'. Needless to say, Robin Hood/Dick Turpin, both just as bad. But I honestly don't know how it typically works and I'm really curious. As for your observation that making piracy downloads harder will help, I am sure you are right.
Strictly project and just for fun
