LMAO. U got me.

What happens if we listen to multiple genres?

lol I almost listen to all genres

Yeah, fuck that. I'd rather have us be split by the sources we use. E.g. youtube rip prison, soulseek prison, the pirate bay prison, apollo prison, etc. I'm more likely to have a lot in common with the people who are members of the same private tracker because they share the same type of passion for music, even if we listen to completely incompatible genres.

Great, I'll be split all over the land in that case....

Same haha

You get split into genres

you get to sit with us patricians

I hope you don't listen to Katy Perry and napalm death at the same time.

I f*p to Perry while listening to Napalm Death ?

Not the reverse?

You what? I can't understand what you're trying to say with that asterisk in the way

*a*

When I was last engaged in the action I noticed I didn't hear any vowels being made ? the 'f' and 'p' sure .. even though quite indistinguishable

So now I leave an asterisk so that people still know what I mean even though it might not match their own f*pping sound. A very inclusive system if I say so myself.

How do you "almost listen"? Hover your finger above the play button, then "Nah"?

Fuck my grammar lol

Its a liftime in prison then. A year for every song

Even if they sentenced us only 6 months per song or movie, I think I've downloaded enough to get 20 years.

These days I think most do. Even of you define yourself as a 'punk' or a 'grunger' or a 'pop prince/ss' you have to aknoledge that there are at least a couple of songs you listen to that are outside your genre...

The whole stratification of people by music genre was something that made sense when it actually conformed part of your identity, like when you’re in an urban tribe. Today you can pirate/stream anything, so any human being with a modicum of curiosity will get exposed to music outside of what they listen to. In my experience the streaming services’ algorithms are meant for advertisers to get a more refined profile of what you are listening to, not because they help you find music you like inside one genre.

Gen pop….

Hung drawn and quartered if you have downloaded exactly 4 genre.

I listen to jazz, classical, and death metal, and polka. Does that mean I get my own cell?

You get lumped in with the juggalos

r/showerthoughts

He means splitting by race/nationality

I buy Spotify but pirate my movies and tv because I don’t want to fuck around with buying every fucking streaming service I do have Netflix tho

You should pirate some punctuation.

The thing with Spotify is that it's worth it to just buy it.

I'd pay for a streaming service if it was AiO like Spotify is. I'm not going to juggle multiple services looking for shit to watch. Just automate my downloads and use Plex instead.

What sucks though is that recently a lot of albums of multiple artists have been disappearing from Spotify. Probably either party renegotiating on contracts but in the meantime I'm left without some of my favourite music.

I can't afford 120 €/year for something I would use thrice or less a week

Get Spotify++, it's a free hacked version

Nah its too buggy... i used it for about a year.. in that time it deleted my offline files at least 100x... then for some reason it wouldn't allow my pc to save offline files at all.. i went through tech support and how did they help? By deleting my offline files from all my devices (the same error still occured the very next day)... cost be a fortune in data charges being half awake early in the morning.. mp3s dont delete themselves every 2-3 days for mo apparent reason.. drm is drm is drm... i now hace the same playlist (expanded) on all the same devices no sweat..

It's been so long since I pirated music. I use to mostly pirate music. I actually barely pirate anything these days now thinking about it. Like, I use Kodi for certain shows but that's it. I don't waste my time on shows movies still in theaters if they are in poor quality.

Yes but if I ever see Spotify original in unsubscribing.

That is if you're in the position to have a good amount of bandwidth and speed. I on the other hand do not when I'm home so it rather use a high capacity mSD with all my music content.

Isn't it more worth to have premium if you don't have bandwidth since you can download everything automatically + the fact that Spotify often has better servers than the hosters of soulseek or other torrents?

Wouldn't it be even worth it with bad bandwith and speed? Since it has offline mode

When you buy Spotify you can download to listen offline

You can download to your phone with Spotify.

I don't think it's as much as you want but you can download at least 10 albums or so before it starts clearing your older saves from the memory.

Maybe there is a way to make it save more idk.

My life... 30kb/s wifi... never knew the other people have 600kb/s as a standard

Wow, can you even load pages? We have 100 Mb/s at home and my friend has a 10 Gb/s connection since last month. Netherlands btw

10gbps what the fuck

Yeah its really high speed and not that expensive tbh, they started building the network in this region last year (de wolden). 10 gb/s is like 95 euro or 110 euro with tv per month. I don't need such speeds myself but yeah why not if you want to pay that

I guess it could be useful for hotels etc. But they probably already have such connections.

uh, you must forget that you're on reddit.

many setups on /r/homelab have the routing capacity, and disk IO to handle 10gbps loads.

https://www.tweak.nl/glasvezel/pionieren-met-10-gigabit.html

10Gbps is more common than you think in server-land, definitely rare in consumer situations though.

Also for disks you'd only need a couple SSDs in RAID0 to make use of 10Gbps, totally possible.

Yeah with raid it's obviously pretty easy. On consumer level though if you live in a dense neighborhood you could split the bill with 10 people bam gigabit internet for 9,5€ a month. Or you make them pay 11€ each so you get it for free yourself.

I think you mean 100 Mbps and 10 Gbps, which translates into roughly 12.5 MB/s and 1.25 GB/s down.

It really depends on who you are talking to, most people use "MB" as megabyte and "Mb" or "mb" as megabit, so he was correct

Yeah I meant bits not bytes haha.

No, your terminology was correct MB is megabyte and Mb is megabit. "Per second" can be expressed as "/s" or "ps". I think the person who tried to correct you is a bit confused.

Haha thanks for the clarification, I just got a bit confused myself

That's very slow, where do you live?

I currently have around 15 Mb/s down.

50Mbs here with vdsl

Lebanon... 4gb download takes like 14 hours

more time to read books :D libgen book is then downloaded in a minute.

That's OK. You can stream HD videos and shit. Not great but for Libanon...

omg im actually visiting for a week and my buddy here has 2mbps in his apartment. so crazy we're downloading at less than 200kb/s

even a single Snapchat takes several seconds to download

how do people stream Netflix or any online content

They dont. Youtube works fine at 200px if youre the only one using thewifi at home

Not really, premium allows you to download music to not use bandwidth

10 dollars a month is rape.

I have Spotify++ on my phone so I don't need to cough up the twelve dollars

Yep, same here.

I'm willing to pay for a certain level of convenience + a fair and affordable price.

This is quite simple. Spotify offers virtually every song, and those few more niche songs that it may not have you can easily find elsewhere. No video streaming service will ever be able to achieve this.

pretty much half my main library that i've built up over the years (8000+ songs) are not on spotify. I know its unfair to spotify to judge it for that but i'd rather take my physical selection over a service with only half my music anyday.

[removed]

There is one video streaming service. THEPIRATEBAY

stremio with pirate bay, even downloading is passe now for everything but movies that are masterpeices.

I’ll check it out

There’s tons of music I listen to that I can’t find on the Pirate Bay. :/

Spotify is actually pretty good, it starts to play music I didnt follow but I actually like. While not piracy, I am breaking the TAC, not everyone lives in the same house.

\m/

I listen for many genres.

Obviously Nickleback will give you the shortest jail time.

*Longest

No I meant because its trash the judge wouldn't bother. Lets say it goes both ways.

In my country you're allowed to download music for personal use :)

Please tell me where you live

We can do it in Spain :D Any cultural content is allowed to be copied digitally without lucrative purposes.

Which country

America. No seriously. People don't get fucking arrested for this shit. Prove me wrong.

Really?

Was going to say this too. It's distribution that's punishable but the history of enforcement seems to only show it on a large scale (Napster, Megaupload, etc.)

I've recieved several DMCA requests for piracy. You have to be careful in the US.

Careful for what? DMCA is just a takedown request,remove the item if you have them on those shitty sites lol,they are just requesting nothing else As long as I know lol

DMCA takedown requests are sent to media sites that are distributing copyrighted content. You probably got a scary letter from your ISP. They rarely have actual legal teeth.

Simply torrenting is enough to receive a DMCA, due to seeding. They often don't even check if you are actually seeding or not.

Well you would have to be seeding for them to notice you....

I live in switzerland. We are allowed to download movies and music from the internet, even when it's an illegal source. But uploading said media is forbidden.

Most regimes have this implicitly. The only country I know of that explicitly says downloading is illegal is Japan. Almost every other country just doesn't have a law targeting people who have obtained an unlicensed copy of a work. Fair use and/or first sale wouldn't apply, so literally anything you could do with your unlicensed copy would be infringement (e.g. if you buy a bootleg DVD you can't legally resell it), but the act of merely obtaining an unlicensed copy is not itself an infringement.

That being said, I would be extremely careful trying to use this as a justification as it more-or-less only protects people who download from Mega. Copyright infringement can apply to any person who is making or transmitting unlicensed copies; which would include the torrent creator, tracker operator, and every client in the swarm. If you are using any kind of P2P software, then you are likely uploading, unless you've specifically configured your client to prohibit sharing entirely. BitTorrent clients are specifically designed to deprioritize or outright refuse to share with clients that don't share back; and trackers may similarly ban you from the swarm outright. (If it's a private tracker, you'll get banned when your ratio goes to shit.)

There's also been various attempts to add "making available" as a type of copyright infringement. You see, right now, a copyright owner has to actually join a swarm and start downloading in order to get a list of people infringing on their work. "Making available" would cover any instance in which you (or your P2P software) advertised unlicensed content for download, even if you were lying and didn't intend to actually transfer it. That means that just joining an unlicensed swarm would be enough to get a nastygram in your inbox, and the semantic difference between downloading and infringement would largely disappear... again, except for people who pay Kim Dotcom money to avoid paying the copyright owners money.

But uploading said media is forbidden.

Which basically kills torrenting since.

set upload limit to 0?

it still leaks some data, and even if you don't upload anything at all, you still show up on their clients.

Not the worst thing if there are alternatives

Yeah but you see, downloading alone is legal in most places. IDK how they handle it in the usa, but here in Germany for example downloading is also legal as long as you don't upload it. But this is basically worthless. Torrenting is still illegal even with this exception, and One Click Hosters are undetectable either way (unless we are talking about honeypots here). So... you get almost nothing out of it.

Why are one click hosters undetectable?

I've read that you can get a huge fine in Berlin even if you just download without uploading.

r/I'm14anthisisedgy

I'm pretty sure I saw this posted on MySpace it's so old.

You are old.

Moreso everyday.

Fuck, separate cell :C

Honestly this is some shitty Facebook post circa 2009. I'm unsubbing

Yeah, wtf is this shit?

No one cares

Tupac cares, if don't nobody else care.

That'd make for such a great Writing Prompt tbh

Fuck that. Put me in solitary!

Aw yiss Gonna be in the alt rock group

But it's punishment. Like jail is to punish you.

They should put you in with people who don't like your music. And everyone has to listen to Vietnamese country music.

And everyone has to listen to Vietnamese country music.

Jokes on you, I’d fairly enjoy that.

lol american copyright laws only works in USA. Who the fuck cares about pirating in Asia, Africa and South america?

Lol GG with ignoring the rest of North America, not just the USA. Same for Europe.

Paying every month is slavery

You misunderstand what slavery is

As long as they don't care about pirating books...

Jesus Christ, is this my Facebook feed from 2014? How about we don't post low effort teenage memes, there's other subs for that.

This same meme circulated MySpace back in like 2005

I don't really want to be grouped with other people who torrent weird fetish porn....

Last time I downloaded weird porn, I saw a girl giving a horse a blowjob.

Indie rock, anti-folk 🙋

My whole cell block just changing Cotton eye Joe 24/7

We live in a society

This is so sad😭, can we end women’s suffrage?

Where all my DRAGON ENERGY brothers?

All copyright should be abolished.

All fans of "hard core" forms of any genre, will be paired up with both a pop punk fan, and a pop country fan who will argue about whose bands are more legitimate.

I’m framing that

Cringe

The fact that

so many books still name the Beatles as "the greatest or most significant or most influential" rock band ever only tells you how far rock music still is from becoming a serious art. Jazz critics have long recognized that the greatest jazz musicians of all times are Duke Ellington and John Coltrane, who were not the most famous or richest or best sellers of their times, let alone of all times. Classical critics rank the highly controversial Beethoven over classical musicians who were highly popular in courts around Europe. Rock critics are still blinded by commercial success. The Beatles sold more than anyone else (not true, by the way), therefore they must have been the greatest. Jazz critics grow up listening to a lot of jazz music of the past, classical critics grow up listening to a lot of classical music of the past. Rock critics are often totally ignorant of the rock music of the past, they barely know the best sellers. No wonder they will think that the Beatles did anything worthy of being saved.

Deep House anyone??

In a cell with all of them craving psy-trance fellas. Nope.

I don't want to be locked in prison with the same type of people who listen to Death Grips no thanks.

Why are you afraid of being in the same cell as a bunch of white children?

Hypothetically speaking if it came to that Id be snitching like crazy giving the names of the top reddit pirates etc

More like mp3, wav, flac

When did we return to 2012

They already started jailing the hip hop listeners

They can't make a prison big enough. Maybe they could just give all of 5 people who don't download anything a gift card or something.

If you seed something, say something!

I ll be in psy genre😁

That's one crazy genre!

I downloaded the icarly wii game, where would that put me?

This is satire right?

That is if you're in the position to have a good amount of bandwidth and speed. I on the other hand do not when I'm home so it rather use a high capacity mSD with all my music content.
