    Re: Logging

    TPB logs are protected well enough through encryption. If they were ever seized they would be useless. You can always choose another torrent outlet if copyright piracy makes you uncomfortable.

    90 Minutes with John Steele (Ars Technica) - Select Steele Quotes:

    "I work part-time with Livewire Holdings, one of the entities that Lutz owns. My role is on the business side. I acquire other adult content companies and deal with expanding the holding company. The main goal is to handle a lot of content and websites and to be involved in the adult space. For that, I'm paid a flat fee."

    "Steele: Well, they have websites. I know the next question is going to be to list out the websites and so on, but you'll have to bear with me. I'm certainly not able to talk about the different entities... some of them are selling their content and collecting information on people that are stealing."

    "Why would we make piracy easier? "Go here, not hereódo this, not this?" Then the pirates know where to go. They also know what websites to hack. We had a website that just crashed, and we had to rebuild it. We're not going to do something to help piracy and hurt our company."

    "I'd have to get OK from Mark Lutz to tell you the titles [of movies being sold]. And, I'd have to be sure those [movies] aren't being monitored by technical services [to check if they're being downloaded]."
