Herald's story about aXXo If the film studios released DVD's the same time as movies they wouldn't have so much of a problem. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/technology/news/article.cfm?c_id=5&objectid=10550551

Lol its like a introduction to piracy class. anyone who didn't know where or how to get pirate movies will know just about all they need to know after that article. nice going herald.

Not as good as the time TVNZ did a story that explained picking magic mushrooms in kiwifruit orchards and boiling them up.

cybertao, Jan 5, 9:47am
OMG! That story is seven pages long.

Lmao "One Canadian documentary film-maker, for example, is working on a film entitled Searching for aXXo." "me myself and aXXo", "there's something about aXXo"

I like: "When you have six million people breaking the law, it's the law that needs changing, not the people." That was a brilliant read. Im surprised they gave out so much information. Now everyone can just read that and know where to look and what to search for. Easy as that. Thanks Herald :D

The hearld seems to be for it maybe the editor gets songs from mininova for his ipod.

seriouslycgi, Jan 5, 11:07am
Axxo isnt public enemy, all his rips are either from purchased dvd's or re-encodes of other peoples rips. and to be honest i dont think its one person. besides its not hard to find him.

soodanim, Jan 5, 11:16am
Huh? so he/she/they not a public enemy(ies) because he distributes rips from purchased dvds....lol that's funny.

lostdude, Jan 5, 11:29am
Dunno about 1000th upload. Pretty sure s/he/they reached that landmark at the end of 2007/beginning of 2008, before disappearing for a while. LOL @ 'The aXXo's Prayer' I remember that, but again, pretty sure it was first posted in 2007, in the piratebay. "Each group will likely specialise in a certain medium (film, TV, games, music) - even a specific movie genre - and will include computer experts (or "rippers")" -ROFL & yet they deem bitorrent as amateurism. & finally, /applaud Herald for their unique ability to contradict stories about technological improvements in delivery, & still take them a week to republish it -Page 7: "This article was originally published by The Independent." ROFL

lostdude, Jan 5, 11:31am
yeah s/he's/they is/are/n't "public" enemy/ies, s/he's/they is/are PRIVATE enemy/es. LOL

seriouslycgi, Jan 5, 11:33am
The public enemy is the public. they shares it once everyone else latches on and spreads it. to be honest people just need a brand to distribute, and just like how microsoft made computing what it is today, axxo arent the best just the most popular.

If I am an Expert for Ripping Am I an IT engineer for Ripping it onto a CD :O And if I feel like risking, I do a DVD. Yup I'm hardcore :)

acura, Jan 5, 11:38am
"Our ripper, who art on Mininova, aXXo be thy name..." Oookay...

soodanim, Jan 5, 12:38pm
that hardly even makses sense...he/she/they don't own the rights to distributor it, even if they did purchase it. I don't think I said they were the best, they are in the news because they are most popular lol

soodanim, Jan 5, 12:40pm

soodanim, Jan 5, 12:41pm
Lol makses haha

4. Print it to a .pdf file and you'll get all seven pages in one sheet. (Click on the herald print icon). I think I'll print it out properly and take it with me to read. Heck, even my wife has heard of aXXo. By the way peeps: BSG4 starts on January 16 (US time) I believe.

richms, Jan 5, 3:35pm
I have not being too impressed with the supposed awesome axxo rips that my mate gave me - the one I looked at was just another 700 meg stereo rip which had being resized. Why do they keep with this resizing nonsense. Keep it 720 wide and only crop it makes for a much better encode, and the 700 meg size is well past its time. Almost as sad as making things into 2 700 meg files.

I can understand only having stereo, since lots of people dont care for a home theater, but the lower resolution really hurts...

There is a huge range of content availableaXXo is small fry compared to what you are able to get through bittorrent as a whole. The worlds largest online database of music is a private torrent tracker. Movies are almost always available as high quality DVDRips before they are released in NZ and all new games (Wii, PS3, Xbox 360, PC) are available before they are retailed here in NZ. If I am able to locate a copy of an item I want to play/watch/listen for the cost of bandwidth BEFORE its available in NZ why should I even bother with a retail store? I think voting with my feet will encourage content producers to change their business model and distribution method. They will change it. At the moment there is still enough money to be made via their old distribution method, as soon as that dries up they will change for a more efficient one. Pirates are simply the catalyst for change.

I must be getting old But Hollywood movies suck. Full of propaganda and memes, hardly entertaining. I hope aXXo helps make them go bust.

ruby2shoes, Jan 5, 10:45pm
You seriously MUST be an Idiot. And Next time I make it have no sound please.

kane199, Jan 5, 10:54pm
