Do you guys buy your ringtones? Or do you just put them on your phones
from mp3s?

We’re just curious about ringtone purchases.

Most of our competitive analysis is around bt anyway. Tab discovered the utorrent exploit that MS was using. Maybe we can promote one of the qa guys to run that team.

Please give thoughts.

Tabish is good.  The candidates that Ebert and I are seriously considering would probably be very good too (we are likely to offer him a position starting at $50k/year beginning the 30th of July).

Is there any way to leave some of the filtered content accessable but not searchable via miivi home page. The goal would be to gain google traffic.

Jay and Randy,
 
Some notes from today's IFPI call.  I'm CCing Neil as he is likely to be more in the loop on this project as it progresses.

    *
      IFPI wants our web crawler's structure to act in practice similar to what the Leaks team does manually.
                +
                  they're concerned about Leaks analysis automated on larger volume.
                +
                  as "joe public" would look for leaks.
    *
      ifpi has 25k pre-release tracks
    *
      4-5mm tracks in whole catalog
    *
      MD would get access to IFPI db and post back results in same way that we pull it from their system.
    *
      MD would use google and yahoo to populate system periodically, as those systems scour the whole internet.
    *
      MD's system would then iterate through a small subset of the internet (blogs identified by MD's Leaks team, IFPI's team, and other sources) much more frequently.
    *
      ifpi wants us to build it, and test it to show the proof is in the pudding about the Searcher and Matcher
    *
      they're concerned about any logic based on proximity of words (e.g., within 40 words of each other may be too broad and pick up too much crap, or within 5 words may be too narrow and miss too much).  they didn't accept our response that we're aware of this issue and would tweak accordingly.
    *
      they'll give us 5 test artist-albums
    *
      business terms:  Jeremy and Randy to speak "off-line" about how to move along
                +
                  ifpi has spoken with 3 other vendors about this.
                +
                  they don't want to pay for something sight unseen

-Ben

Nicole from pussy cat dolls has a single called “whatever u like”. It’s not selling well on itunes or playing that great on radio. A song called “Baby Love” just leaked (I don’t know how long ago). Interscope wants to know if Baby Love is picking up steam on p2p. They need to make a decision by early next week on whether they should switch to this song as the single. Please get me a score comparison on Monday for these two tracks. Also, please put beyonces, fergie, gwen, and nelly furtado singles as comparisons.



And***, I’m afraid that the weird last name will affect the data. Can you account for that somehow?

So not only do they try to bring down networks and sue users, but they also actually depend on it to gain free marketing data about popularity of songs? Kind of contradicting themselves there arent they?

Re: Media Defender's stuff leaked everywhere

Postby deniedx90 » Sun Sep 16, 2007 12:15 am

When I got this stack of emails, the one question I wanted answered was, how much money do they make, and how can we, as a community, make that number smaller. I haven't finished this analysis, but here are the preliminaries:


My first clue to MediaDefender's pricing structure is the small "monitoring contract" that nets MD $10,000 a month.

(see Statement of Work, "FW: Next steps with testing," 6-20-2007; see Contract Draft, MediaDefender Agreement (Configuration Testing) (v1 6-28-07).doc email on 7-13-2007, and fully executed contract, MediaDefender Agreement (Configuration Testing) (v1 6-28-07) (Exec)-2.pdf, faxed from UMG on 7-11 and in the email file as of 7-17-2007).


Then the big dog: the 2006 and Randy's proposed changes to 2007 contract with Universal Music Group, Standard Contract for Anti-Piracy services (turn to page MediaDefender UMG Agreement DRAFTv1.doc from email on 8-3-2007 in your hymnals).

This is a redline draft, so we can see the 2006 final draft and changes proposed for 2007.

Notes from "Standard Contract for Anti-Piracy Services"

Basic pricing:
$4000 per album-month
$2000 per track-month
$1000 per developing artist album-month (<500,000 units expected monthly volume)
$1000 per month for monitoring single tracks out of previously monitored albums
$500 per month for extended (long-term) monitoring of single tracks out of previously monitored albums

UMG paid at least $3,500,000 (minumum value to MD) over the course of the 2006 contract (90% of UMI's anti-piracy budget is to be spent with MD).

If someone can extrapolate total tracks and albums monitored, i'm sure you could draw it out of their excel sheets, then apply those figures to these prices and we know about how much they make from the music industry.


We know that record companies and movie houses want to protect things a whole lot more in the initial days/weeks of release. MD's pricing reflects this, as does their "Leak Detection" department, which exists solely to watch for things to pop up on popular p2p sites.

In this contract and probably others, if MD can't meet its performance metrics, UMI doesn't pay (up to 50% of the contract fees can be waived, with greater penalties, including termination, for greater non-performance).

MD calls it an "SLA Credit" when it's too easy for someone to find the right files on p2p sites; if you're paying for their anti-piracy expertise, you pay a lot less when your company's songs are easy to download. Randy notes in his email that the SLA credits on BitTorrent is already hurting them:

How would we want to go back on the BT SLA. Since the results have been so bad, we have to position it as us not trying to game the SLA. Maybe focus on the new Uber 2 techniques.


Want to bankrupt MediaDefender? Pay close attention to how they gauge performance, MD's clients get service credits (i.e. $$$) when authentic files are easy to download.

Universal Music's contract stipulates they hire a vendor to run 80 tests per month on the following networks (listed in order of weight, i.e. from maximum possible monthly tests to minimum):

  • Clients Not more than __ out of the 80
  • Kazaa, Kazaa Lite 30
  • Limewire, Morpheus, Shareaza 30
  • eMule 30
  • Ares 25
  • uTorrent, BitTorrent, Azureus 20
  • Morpheus, Shareaza 20
  • DC++ 15
  • MxPie 15
  • Piolet 10
  • Soulseek 10
  • Filetopia 5

In otherwords, they could run as many as 30 tests on Kazaa, 30 on Limewire, and 25 on Ares in a month, but never more than 5 tests on Filetopia or 10 on Soulseek.

A test-run involves searching for "artist track title" or "artist album title," selecting results based on 'best' returns, low/med/hi users offering, and random selection, and let audio files download for 2 hrs, archives for 10.

At the end of 2- or 10- hours, analyze the files: how many complete, pirated tracks did you get? With 45 max attempts per test, this table lists the number of authentic files you have to get to fail the test:

    Download Attempts Made Fail if Pirate Count is
  • 45 6
  • 40 5
  • 35 5
  • 30 5
  • 25 4
  • 20 4
  • 15 3
  • 10 3


These are pretty low hurdles, get four out of 25 downloads to complete with authentic files, MediaDefender fails the test. Every failure makes them look worse.


Bittorrent is handled differently:

Same premise, from any of the torrent sites listed on page 23 of the draft agreement, search for albums / tracks, open up to 45 torrents for download (or as many as you can find) and see how fast you get the files. Fail the test by:

. 50% successful, real files downloaded in 6-hours

. 25% successful, real files downloaded in 4-hours

. This many successful, real files downloaded in 2-hours:

    Download Attempts Made (2-hr) Fail if Pirate Count is
  • 45 4
  • 40 4
  • 35 4
  • 30 4
  • 25 3
  • 20 3
  • 15 2
  • 10 2

So if you find 25 results of a given album on the torrent sites, and 3 or more of those complete with real files in a 2-hr time period, that is a failed test.


This list tells us, among other things, that the top three networks you should be supporting with clean data and fast downloads are Kazaa, Limewire, and eMule, followed by Ares (apparently BT is already too clean, they're losing ground there). The better those networks perform across the board, the less money MD makes. (see page 18 of the UMG DRAFT contract for schedule of SLA credits per failed tests)


Other notables:

MD spent a -lot- of time developing miivi, and apparently they were going to roll the same concept out on viide; they definitely think there is money to be made in the streaming video market by combining streaming video and whatever's in that client-side code (at one time they draw comparisons to browser-based bittorrent). Unsure how this fits into their plan, if its an extension of the Marketing Intelligence program or something new, but you can bet we haven't seen the last of that miivi code (assuming MD survives this debacle, god forbid).

MD doesn't like anyone new getting into the youtube game, and they have several emails noting design details of video and music sharing sites. I assume they expected some first-to-market advantage with miivi that's either about to disappear or long gone.

There's only three mentions that I found: one of my articles, one of Tom's articles, and whoever posted both the clean .met server lists. Otherwise, from what I can tell, they really don't care about the informed file-sharer. They only care when it could possibly screw up their operations which is why Slyck members were mentioned.

Oh yeah, and if Anti-P2P organizations start targetting private sites, I'm willing to bet the first ones they try and take out are BitSoup and Oink given that I've already found a number of mentions from both of those sites.

Edit: Over at Media Defender, it is of the utmost priority to display a sense of maturity and restraint at all times. Who better to be a roll model in all of this than the President himself:

Media Defender Buys P2P.net: Preparing for their Next Scam?

Written by Ernesto on July 12, 2007

The infamous anti-piracy organization Media Defender recently bought the P2P.net domain. Currently P2Pnet redirects to Google and at this point it is still unclear what their plans are for the domain. However, it is likely that they will use it for one of their pirate traps such a the fake video download service Miivi or the fake BitTorrent trackers they run.

P2P.net (not P2Pnet.net) was up for auction at eBay earlier this year. Initially it wasn’t sold because the original owner wanted a higher price for the domain. It turns out that Media Defender was one of the interested parties, and they probably paid thousands of dollars to get the domain in their possession. Because of the huge amount of money that’s involved it is not likely that the domain will stay unused for a long time.

Last week we discovered that Media Defender actively tried to lure people into downloading blockbuster movies from their fake download site, Miivi.com. As expected, only a few hours after we made the news public the site was taken offline.

Media Defender later told Ars Technica that Miivi was an internal project to test out an online video project, but we know better. We’re convinced that they will try this, or a similar trick again in the near future.

Media Defender is hired by companies like the MPAA, BSA and RIAA to track down people who try to download copyrighted content. They record IP-addresses from BitTorrent trackers and other P2P networks. But they also utilize more proactive methods such as uploading fake .torrent files and setting up fake video download sites.

Luckily most BitTorrent site admins are aware of their shady practices and remove these fake files from their sites before they can do any harm. Pirate Bay admin Brokep offered his help to other BitTorrent admins to help them identifying and removing these fake files, he told TorrentFreak:

“Since the Miivi-incident we can’t keep quiet about them anymore. We want their employers to stop using them so they go bankrupt”

To our friends at Media Defender from all of us here at TorrentFreak… We’re watching you…
Whois Info P2P.net


The punchline in that e-mail exchange:

Tabish,

Apparently "recently" here means 1998. Randy has owned this domain for almost 10 years, as listed on whois databases online.

I wasn't aware of the article, so thanks for sending this. This "Ernesto" guy is the same one that wrote the original TorrentFreak article about MiiVi. I wonder what the personal vendetta is all about....

Man that Sony guy is really pushy. I mean, it's only a couple million you gave these guys. It sounds like a lot of money for the average folk, but c'mon, you've lost much more in battery recalls, the crappy PS3 performance, and the rootkit fiasco, so it's no big loss. :P

Demonoid is compromised as we already known.. I read a few on oink. Its been compromised for the last 2 years.. At that point their telling rec execs about the ground on oink and how things are being leaked there.
They sent a proxy app out to people to. Heres a message note from it.

To all reporters,



We need your help. Please install the following program on your local machine. It’s a software developed by us and part of the QA process is to roll it out to more PCs.



Try to get this done by tomorrow afternoon. Serge will be able to tell who has it installed and who doesn't. Don’t worry, it’s not a virus and it runs quietly in the background. All of the QA team already has it installed.



If you encounter any problems while installing it or while it’s running in the background, please let me know.



Thanks,

Tabish

Leak is the right word for now. From what is on display here that the operative word should become exposure, incrimination or whistleblowers. IANAL but surely justice has something to say about :

* inducing deliberate malfunction/corruption of computer communication protocols
* misconduct (ballpark numbers, av licence violations )
* patently false statements (we should have pass protected)
* handling, storing and viewing of explicit sexual content of minors ?

Hehe, p2p technology works so well even a funded operation can't do jack, surely the copyright laws should change so that this distasteful company does not have to add more woe to the world.

Bet when they first saw their email inboxes after the leak they went into shock. AOLvoice says "YOU GOT 9999999999 DEATH THREAT EMAILS."

email-security by forwarding all your emails to your gmail
account, and using the really highly secure password: blahbob


I doubt Jay has much of a job come this monday...

Z-

BTW, Jay wanted you to look into the hidden transfer thing. Right now I have a table for "hidden transfers," but no way for you to query it.

Sometime today I'll make a change to queue.php, where you can get the entries in the hidden queue. Probably by doing something like an isset on "p" for publish.

The hidden queue would be populated by ads and published files. Obviously the ads wouldn't ever be shown to people, but I don't know if the published stuff would appear in their libraries after download is finished. Probably not.

Dear Team

If you get any suspicious email or phone contact in the next few weeks, let Ben Grodsky know. Do not respond or speak to unknown people outside the company. Several people on the Internet are fishing for contact information. Do not give out any information.

Regards
Randy


Tech question: can pdfs do anything beyond show a document? I'm trying to figure out why I keep getting pdfs spammed to me and whether there's something similar we could do on p2p for promotional services. I've never opened the pdfs I get spammed because they're spam.

Finished reading. finally.


Man these people are so screwed. Among other things...

the FCC may want to talk to them now.
the attorney generals of several states.
the SEC will surely be intrested in this given that their artistsdirect arm is a publically traded company.
the IRS may wish to have a peek in there too now.
various software producers may wish to audit them now.

And oh yeah. their "customers" the media mafia will surely have something intresting to say. (dong... hahahahahah!)

And what about all the isps who have started complaining that p2p traffic is taking up x% of their total bandwidth. Turns out it wasnt the pirates after all causing all that traffic.

not to mention the collapse of the company now that everyone knows what everybody else makes.

and some of their code samples are pure garbage. christ. these are not smart people. more ego than brains.


SO how long will it take to see a global blacklist for all these dipsticks... Heck most of their accounts are gone already. anyone notice there was even a list of the employees HOME ip addresses. fun stuff.


On another note. I see the sites i frequent are not even listed anywhere in there.



Hey media defender people... i KNOW you're reading this. you cant stop following the trainwreck of your life that your carreer choice has brought you. you know what?

YOU FAIL!
