Even our internal tests today did not match what they reported. We re-did 2 tests each of James Morrison and Take That and pretty much all of them passed.


The biggest discrepancy is the Ares results between us and them. I don’t really see how we failed as badly as they reported. We tested using the same version and everything.


2 possible explanations:

Either the version of Ares they reported using is inaccurate. They’re actually using 2.09+.

Or they’re using something like Peer guardian.


Neil, I’ll try to come up with some questions for you to ask them tomorrow.




(UMGI results from today are attached).

I’m attaching our internal results for these same tracks. They don’t look anywhere close to what they reported. We also did some quick searches using their version of Ares, and looks like we still hit.


I will also address each of the projects one by one below:


James Morrison - you give me something:

* Their reported search string on Limewire is not accurate. The full search string “james morrison you give me something” can not fit. They must have used another string.
* On 5/22, we found a problem with the track keywords and got it fixed. Their tests were on 5/17 & 5/23


The Fratellis - Chelsea Dagger:

* Didn't get marked as a single until 5/22. Their tests were on 5/17 & 5/23.
* No longer active so we can’t retest.
* Besides being a non-single, we most likely failed because they used the search string “fratellis” w/out the “the” and our PM was setup with the search string “the fratellis”


Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars:

· Got terminated on 6/5, so we can't test any longer


Take That – Patience

· We passed most of our internal tests (except for Piolet). We


We’re going to run full DL tests on the projects that are still active, using the versions and search strings they used…and send another report out.

Neil has gotten us UMGI's testing results. He's trying to get more info from them now to nail down their testing methodology. Please run tests on the same titles UMGI tested and see if there's anything that may be wrong with how the projects are setup. The results from them are atrocious.
