    After sharing a file or two and ignoring warnings from the government to knock it off, an as-yet-unnamed French Internet user has become the first person fined under France's controversial 'Hadopi' law -- a statute that gives file sharers "three strikes" before swooping in with draconian measures like hefty fines and disruptions in Internet service.

    Pirating content is bad, mmkay? That doesn't make it okay for the content creators to install malware on your computer.

  8. The Pirate Bay Continues Domain Name Hot Potato, Moves to Sint Maarten

    In their attempts to stay one step ahead and whatever legal organizations are currently actively trying to shut them down, the Pirate Bay has a habit of cycling through top-level domains. For example, they had piratebay.se for quite some time, but recently fled to Iceland with piratebay.is. Looks like their time in Iceland might be up, though, as they've apparently fled to piratebay.sx -- Sint Maarten -- in an attempt to avoid any sort of legal shenanigans.

  10. Netflix Makes a New Family Plan for All You Worthless Freeloaders

    the internet is serious business

    As far as allowing you freedom to watch, Netflix is pretty good about things. You can register up to six devices to an account at one time, and stream simultaneously to two. It's also pretty cool about passwords and log ons. No digging into your cable provider's website to find your registration info, or worse, calling your friend with HBO and instructing them on how to find that info on their cable provider's website. And so Netflix knows that somewhere around 10 million of its subscribers are getting the service for free, by logging in under the accounts of friends or family, but rather than cracking down on those folks, they're offering another option.
