Thank you Goodbye, is it common for KickAss and Pirate Bay to switch url's?

The Pirate Bay is widely suspected to be a honeypot. Use it at your own risk.

Basically it is grabbing the ip address of everyone who visits it.

Okay what do they plan on doing, raiding thousands or millions of people for piracy?

They can send out as many of those "We caught you pirating either pay us $5000 to settle or we'll sue you and win because we have infinite resources and you're a peasant" letters as they want to.

How legitimate is that? Are they going to pick random people or ones who are getting new Hollywood 50 movies a day?

At least for torrents what I remember the technique was that the RIAA would seed their own torrent, use that to get IPs from everyone who leeched it, then they'd estimate how many other people downloaded from your own seed and multiply that by the purchase price of the content to come up with some ridiculous amount that you'd "stolen" from the recording industry. So then their threat was settle for a few grand or they'd sue for you distributing a million dollars worth of copies.

Since people are cowards they'll mostly pay up, and the few who resist can't fight a legal system that's heavily biased towards the party with lots of money for lawyers.

I imagine they would only do this to new Hollywood films and hugely popular albums. Do you guys think Kick Ass Torrents is "safer" then

Just stream movies on primewire(dot)ag. Turn on adblock unless you like clicking through pop ups and the occasional "haha you have to altf4 your browser now" script.
