Whatever happened to commonsense and peoples BS meters.
The CopySense Appliance is the only solution that can identify and block illegal sharing of copyrighted files while allowing other legitimate P2P uses to continue.Audible Magic via TorrentFreak
So what does the $75,000 network appliance get you, well nothing other than another piece of useless technology attached to your network. But, it does mean you can when sued go “Look mister we have a CopySense Appliance, that couldn’t have possibly been us” Net result the lawsuit goes away.
Is it worth that much? Short answer is no. Commonsense has shown that the RIAA and MPAA are still stuggling with the modern world and have yet to make any allegations really stick with any great amount of evidence and justification, other than they need a new revenue stream because their main streams of cash, are rapidly drying up because no body is going pay the exorbitant fees they want.
Still I wouldn’t mind being the company that is selling this stuff to what seems like market that just keeps righting blank cheques to the companies who say they can solve their every problem. Another Epic Fail.

Just out of curiosity, have you used or worked with any of these $75,000 Network Appliances? You seem to have intimate knowledge about these devices. Have you considered working for these companies to show them how things should be done?
I have worked with large and small companies, the problem is there are far too many companies like Audible Magic in the industry selling products as the one stop solution, and then when you have dished the money out its nothing like what it said.
The CopySense system cannot work, it may work for some older P2P methods, but there is no way it could detect and stop copy protected media from passing through the network say if it was encrypted, unless there is some fancy quantum chip in there.
Its utter vapourware, and the tech industry has far too many of these products, and there isn’t enough people who know what this stuff is, to actually advise.
Should the offer of a job come up, I might jump at it or I might not it all depends what exactly it entails and if I would enjoy it.
