stream ripping


I started broadcasting some music a week ago and so far so good. Until I came back today and noticed an IP address that was connected for almost a day (non-stop). I became quickly suspicious and found out that some people can rip the stream easily. So I banned the IP address and the whole subnet.
But what I mostly want to say is that during the time the connection was alive, I could hear some noises on the stream, as if the encoding didn't perform well. This happened only when this IP address was connected. So to me, it is a hint that someone is ripping your stream. Does anyone notice the same thing ??

no, it's not that you can hear somebody stream ripping.
don't believe everything you hear.

Each Thursday a new show on Celtica Radio with Darkwave music.

that is what the law world calls coincidental evidence. If a court won't accept it for submission, neither will I.
