  1. Movie tycoon Carlos Vasallo is suing YouTube for widespread copyright infringement. Despite sending over 10,000 takedown notices, pirated copies of his movies continue to appear. YouTube did offer access to its Content-ID system but the movie magnate refused, as that would require him to release the video platform from all possible piracy claims that took place in the past. To protect copyright holders, YouTube uses an advanced piracy recognition system that flags and disables videos that are uploaded without permission. This copyright filter, known as Content-ID, works reasonably well but its use is limited to a select group of major copyright holders. The Spanish-born movie tycoon Carlos Vasallo should fall into this category. Through several companies, the actor and producer owns the rights to the world’s largest collection of Mexican and Latin American movies. Unfortunately, many of these are illegally shared on YouTube. In 2015, Vasallo reached out to YouTube, hoping to fix this piracy problem. The video platform was open to explore several options and Mr. Juanjo Duran, Google’s Director of Latin Media and Entertainment, suggested the “Content-ID” system as an ideal solution. This sounds like a typical approach YouTube would have when dealing with major copyright holders. However, unlike others, Vasallo refused to use Content-ID system because it came with a major caveat. Mr. Vasallo had to release YouTube from all possible piracy claims that took place in the past. Movie Tycoon Sues YouTube in Florida Instead, the movie tycoon opted to send old-fashioned DMCA takedown notices. However, according to a lawsuit filed in a Florida federal court this week, that did little to stop people from pirating his films. Vasallo hired a New York law firm to police YouTube and send takedown notices when pirated copies appeared. While the takedown process worked, new copies were added constantly. Even banned users reportedly returned using new names. “Once a pirated movie was found, Mr. Vasallo and Plaintiff would send YouTube a takedown notice. YouTube would then remove the pirated video movie in its entirety. However, YouTube would not remove all matching videos, as YouTube would specifically only remove the one video from the one infringer related to the single infringing upload identified in the takedown notice. “The same infringer would be free to upload the video again until three takedown notices were filed against him within a ninety-day period. Then and only then, would YouTube cancel the infringer’s username. The same infringer could then create a new username and begin the process of posting the pirated videos all over again,” the complaint notes. Over the past several years, the law firm sent over 10,000 takedown notices for pirated films that were viewed more than 500 million times on YouTube. The video service maintains that this is how the DMCA works, but the movie tycoon argued that the company should do more. Content-ID Comes With a Caveat The complaint mentions the earlier discussions with YouTube about joining the Content-ID platform. At the time, YouTube said that it could “very easily” detect and block infringing content. However, in order to join, the movie tycoon had to sign a release. Under U.S. law, YouTube is not obliged to actively monitor for pirated content. The company told the movie tycoon that it’s protected by the DMCA. But what is the purpose of the release then, Vasallo wonders. “f Defendants confidently rely on the protections afforded to them by the DMCA, then why did Defendants adamantly insist that Mr. Vasallo, as well as Plaintiff, release Defendants from all claims associated with Defendants’ prior acts of piracy? “The clear answer to this question is the following: Defendants consistently use the DMCA as both a shield and sword against the average copyright owner, such as Plaintiff in this case,” the complaint adds. ‘YouTube Should Proactively Monitor Piracy’ The lawsuit argues that YouTube should be required to take reasonable steps to anticipate and filter potential copyright infringements. This effectively means opening up the Content-ID system to all rightsholders without caveats. According to the movie mogul, YouTube has intentionally decided not to use the Content-ID process for all rightsholders. By doing so, it can monetize the billions of views these videos generate. “Accordingly, Defendants knowingly and willingly induced, facilitated, engaged, and promoted the infringement of Plaintiff’s copyrighted materials for their own financial benefit,” the complaint reads. Through the lawsuit, Vasallo requests damages for YouTube’s alleged copyright infringing activity. With over 700 copyrighted titles, the potential statutory damages add up to more than $100 million. In addition to ruling that YouTube willfully infringed copyrights, the movie tycoon also requests a permanent injunction to require the video platform to implement reasonable technologies to prevent or limit copyright infringement going forward. That sounds a lot like the EU’s ‘upload filter’ requirement. — A copy of the complaint Mr. Vasallo’s company Athos Overseas filed against YouTube at the US District Court for the Southern District of Florida is available here (pdf)

  3. Last week Triller filed a $100m lawsuit hoping to make several sites pay for illegally streaming the Jake Paul vs Ben Askren fight. Triller believes that up to two million people viewed the fight illegally so is now inviting people to enter into a $49.99 settlement agreement. VPN services, it is being claimed, will offer no protection to those who used them to pirate the event. On April 17, Jake Paul squared up against MMA veteran Ben Askren, finishing the accomplished wrestler in the first round. The card was a success but according to Triller, many sites and up to two million people streamed and viewed the event without paying. In order to make some of these people pay, last week Triller filed a $100m lawsuit in a California court targeting a range of sites and up to 100 John Does. While tracking down individuals and sites that offered the streams has its complications, vigorous legal action could give Triller opportunities to achieve damages, perhaps in significant amounts. However, the social media platform has now placed another initiative on the table, one that hopes to bring scared pirates out of the shadows. Streamed the Paul vs Askren Fight Illegally? Pay a Settlement In a statement published by Reuters, Triller claims that it will be pursuing up to two million people and will press for the maximum possible damages. However, if people step forward and voluntarily pay $49.99 (the original price of the event) before June 1, they can avoid legal action. “Triller will pursue the full $150,000 penalty per person per instance for anyone who doesn’t do the right thing and pay before the deadline,” said Triller’s head of piracy Matt St. Claire. “We are taking this position because it is outright theft. It is no different than walking into a store and stealing a video game off the shelf,” he said. “In the case of the offending sites, it’s worse because they also then resold it to many people, illegally profiting from work they do not own.” Triller Claims That VPN Users Aren’t Protected Although no VPN suppliers are currently listed in the company’s lawsuit (an amended complaint was filed last Saturday (pdf) which added the H3 Podcast to the list of defendants), Triller suggests that these could become part of the discovery process and will be forced to hand over their customers’ details. “VPNs all have to comply and turn over the actual IP addresses of each person who stole the fight in discovery,” St. Claire said. “We will be able to identify each and every person, VPN or not, as each stream has a unique fingerprint embedded in the content,” he said. The big question is how much weight Triller’s threats carry. Intentionally or Not, These Are Mixed Messages While Triller’s threats seamlessly switch from suppliers of pirated content and those who allegedly consumed it, there are important differences. Courts generally view suppliers of pirated streaming content much more seriously than they do consumers and as far as we’re aware, no one in the United States has ever been ordered to pay damages for simply watching a pirated stream. Suppliers of illegal streams, on the other hand, have more to worry about. There is little doubt that such suppliers could be on the hook for all kinds of damages if Triller is able to back up its allegations. However, in order to get to the users of those sites, Triller will need to force the sites to hand over their users’ details. Whether that will be possible remains a big question and whether any information obtained via discovery will prove useful is perhaps an even bigger one. But what about Triller’s claims that VPN users aren’t safe? Again, Triller appears to be muddying the waters quite a bit here by blurring the lines between suppliers of content and consumers of it. First of all, VPNs can be ordered by a court to hand over their customers’ details but it is not always straightforward. Firstly, all good VPNs carry no logs, meaning that even if a site that streamed the site handed over visitors’ IP addresses, that trail will go immediately cold. Secondly, many VPN providers use shared IP addresses, meaning that the same IP address will show up in site logs time and time again, since they are being used by hundreds if not thousands of end-users. Since they will all be watching at the same time, pinpointing who did what will be all but impossible. Of course, it is very likely that some viewers will have used some free VPN app they got from Google Play or elsewhere. If these carry logs, tracking users down could be possible. That being said, the process would not be cheap and it would not be particularly easy, and with two million potential targets (at least according to Triller), the entire legal profession doesn’t have the manpower to deal with them all. In respect of the unique fingerprints that Triller says it deploys in its streams, they could prove useful but perhaps not in the way Triller seems to claim. The company implies that these could help them identify people who watched the stream, including those who used a VPN, but that deserves some nuance. What these identifiers can do is help Triller track down people who bought a stream officially and then restreamed it. It could also potentially link those redistributed streams to entities who further restreamed them. As a general rule, however, they won’t be particularly useful in tracking down consumers, VPN or not. The Settlement Offered By Triller Anyone spooked by Triller’s warnings can head over to the dedicated page set up by the company and pay a relatively small settlement. It begins by mentioning the lawsuit filed last week and notes that people who “unlawfully viewed or displayed the event but were not otherwise involved in its illegal sale or distribution” can pay $49.99 to obtain a “one-time settlement and release for their unlawful acts.” Before entering their names, email addresses, phone numbers, physical addresses, and payment card numbers, those who wish to confess to committing an offense are advised to read four lengthy paragraphs about the settlement and its terms and conditions. For example, despite apparently clearing the matter with Triller, people who pay the settlement also agree to Triller storing all of the information they provide “in perpetuity”, noting that it may be used and shared as Triller “deem necessary to enforce our rights under applicable law and this settlement and release.” On the other hand, people who settle aren’t permitted to reveal settlement details to anyone, unless required to by law. Triller also says that after payment, people who settle will be released from the lawsuit it filed last week but, at the time of writing, the people being asked to settle aren’t listed in the lawsuit as defendants. That could change, of course, but there won’t ever be an amended claim listing two million viewers by name. A Speculative Effort That Might Pay Off What Triller appears to be saying here is that if they already knew the identities of the alleged infringers, they would be pursuing them. However, they will take steps to try and find out identities by other means, and potentially pursue them then. In the meantime, people can come forward and confess, something that will enable Triller to positively identify those people with ease and get paid for the event too. The big question is whether people who viewed the event illegally are prepared to play the odds of being identified versus a payment of $49.99 which will identify them anyway.

  11. Free Invites Posted by: TheProfessor Hey, I've given everyone free invites for the next week, your amount of invites will not decrease and you can access your invites from account >> invitations Enjoy!
  12. Activision and Infinity Ward were hit with a copyright infringement lawsuit in February alleging that the companies made a direct copy of a character called "Cade Janus" and relabeled her as "Mara" in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. In a response filed this week, the defendants provide a laundry list of affirmative defenses including fair use and the existence of an implied license. Early February, writer, photographer and videographer Clayton Haugen filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Activision, Infinity Ward, and Major League Gaming Corp. Haugen claimed to be the copyright owner of two literary works and 22 photographs of a character he named ‘Cade Janus’, the main figure in his story ‘November Renaissance’. He hoped that his story would be made into a film and in 2017 he hired actress, cosplayer, and Twitch streamer Alex Zedra (aka Alex Rogers) to portray ‘Cade Janus’. A series of photographs were taken, which together with his story were presented to film studios, published on Instagram, and in a series of calendars. In his complaint, Haugen alleged that the defendants were on the lookout for a “strong, skilled female fighter” for their game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare but instead of creating their own character, used contractors to hire Zedra. She was allegedly asked to obtain and wear the same clothing and gear used in the original photoshoot, the same makeup artist was hired, and photographs from the original shoot were used as a framing guide, Haugen added. “The resulting photographs were intended to be, and were, copies of Haugen’s Cade Janus Photographs,” the lawsuit claimed. As a result, Haugen said that the defendants had breached his exclusive right to make copies and derivatives of his work and his exclusive right of distribution, demanding all profits attributable to the alleged infringement as compensation. Activision, Infinity Ward and Major League Gaming Fire Back This week the defendants filed their answer to the complaint, admitting various facts such as presenting a female fighter in their game, hiring Zedra/Rogers directly and makeup artist Aeni Domme through a contractor. The companies further admit to using the ‘Mara’ character to market downloadable content for Modern Warfare and acknowledge various claims about the companies’ corporate structures. In respect of most other claims made by Haugen, the companies claim that they “lack knowledge or information” sufficient to “form a belief” as to the truth of the allegations so summarily deny them. However, the defendants did provide some meat in their response. The companies acknowledge that certain works created by Haugen are registered at the Copyright Office but flat-out deny that they “copied Haugen’s Cade Janus photographs without his knowledge or permission, had access to his Cade Janus photographs, or used them as a guide to create ‘Mara’. Claims that the makeup artist was instructed to copy the hair and makeup of Janus are also denied. In respect of Haugen’s claim that he never authorized the defendants to make copies of any part of his ‘November Renaissance’ works and his Cade Janus photographs, including the depictions of the character Cade Janus, the gaming companies admit that Haugen never gave them a “direct, express license to any work identified in the complaint.” Nevertheless, they deny all allegations of copyright infringement. Haugen “Not Entitled” To Jury Trial, Affirmative Defenses In their response, Activision, Infinity Ward, and Major League Gaming Corp first object to Haugen’s call for a trial by jury. “A claim for infringer’s profits is an equitable one and is not triable of right by a jury. Furthermore, a claim for statutory damages is not triable of right by a jury,” they write, adding that in their opinion, Haugen is not entitled to any of the relief requested in the complaint. They also provide a laundry list of affirmative defenses that could excuse them from liability, even if Haugen’s allegations were true. Among these are failure to state to a claim on which relief can be granted but also a free speech and/or fair use angle. “Any use of Plaintiff’s copyrighted materials is protected by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution and/or 17 U.S.C. § 107,” the companies write, adding that Haugen has “unlean hands” after engaging in inequitable behavior. The gaming companies also state that Haugen’s claims are barred in whole or in part by the doctrine of laches, suggesting that the complaint had been filed in an untimely manner and as a result, an equitable claim can not be brought. The defendants also list the doctrine of acquiescence, which infers a form of permission that results from inaction over an extended period of time, along with a failure to mitigate. On the rights front, the Modern Warfare creators say that Haugen is barred from making a claim since he does not own the exclusive rights to “some” of the works, noting that the ‘Mara’ character was independently created and the defendants “had an implied license” to use the materials at issue. Perhaps more fundamentally, the gaming giants note that Haugen is barred from pursuing claims in the Eastern District of Texas because he agreed to the exclusive jurisdiction of state or federal courts in Los Angeles to resolve claims for copyright infringement.

  16. Studios like Disney used to rely on box office returns to make money off of their imaginative animated productions. However, it’s no secret this has all been thrown into flux due to COVID-19, and more of the company’s films have been given streaming releases. This past week, it was announced that Pixar’s summer offering Luca would be coming exclusively to Disney+ subscribers for no extra charge, while Cruella and Black Widow are getting a chance at both theaters and the streaming service’s Premier Access. The decision is reportedly rubbing Pixar workers the wrong way. Pixar’s two latest projects, Soul and Luca, will not get the chance at a wide theatrical release, even as more theaters are opening up in anticipation for the movie industry’s first summer box office season in two years. According to The Hollywood Reporter’s former editorial director Matthew Belloni, Pixar employees are discouraged by Disney’s strategy: Both Soul and Luca are huge productions and technical achievements that each spent four years in development at Pixar before their respective releases. The two films were slated to hit theaters before COVID-19 struck, and instead of the Walt Disney Company delaying them or giving them simultaneous theatrical and streaming releases, the animated films have been deemed straight-to-streaming titles. According to Matthew Belloni’s tweet, the Pixar employees in his social circle feel Disney is “demoralizing” the animation wing of the studio by not even charging its audience aside from the monthly $8 fee to be a Disney+ subscriber, a price nearly 100 million people already pay for each month. Perhaps it would not have bothered some Pixar team members if the studio hadn’t decided to assign a higher price value to upcoming films like Cruella and Black Widow. The decision to provide Luca on Disney+ exclusively was described by the studio as a “special offering to kick-off the summer season,” not unlike when Disney brought Hamilton to the streaming service last July and it became a massive streaming hit. The Disney+ strategy has become more vital to the company within the past year, and placing Luca exclusively on the service would presumably be done to bring in more subscribers and keep existing subscribers on board as Disney+ reaches a lull in other high-profile releases, like its MCU shows. Prior to that, Soul was sent exclusively to streaming over the holiday season without any additional charge. The movie became CinemaBlend’s No. 1 movie of 2020 and a sweet gift for families to enjoy over the final days of the year. Though it is interesting that Disney decided to bring its recent movie from the Disney Animation side of production, Raya and the Last Dragon, to theaters and Disney+’s Premier Access, while the two Pixar titles have been given different treatment. Luca hits Disney+ on June 18. Check out what other big releases are coming this summer with CinemaBlend’s 2021 release schedule.
  17. The U.S. probation service is recommending a six-month prison sentence for Jonatan Correa, who was part of the notorious Scene group SPARKS. According to Correa's lawyer, his client shouldn't go to prison at all. Aside from his limited involvement with the group, Correa had no financial incentive. The Scene was his hobby, which ran parallel to his family life and managing his company with 32 employees. Last year, the US Department of Justice booked one of its biggest successes in its battle against online piracy. In August, law enforcement upset the international piracy ecosystem by taking out a prominent Scene group, which was the source for many pirated movies and TV-shows. SPARKS Raids Hit The Scene Supported by international law enforcement partners, the feds carried out organized raids all over the world. This dealt a massive blow to The Scene and resulted in indictments against three alleged members of the SPARKS group. While The Scene pretty much recovered in the months that followed, the criminal case against the three defendants remains. In January, one of the accused men, Kansas resident Jonatan Correa (aka ‘Raid’), pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit copyright infringement. Correa was well aware that his admission could lead to a prison sentence. With the Department of Justice, he agreed to a sentencing guideline of 12 to 18 months. The official recommendation from the probation service, which was released earlier this month, lowered this to half a year in prison, followed by six months of home confinement. Prison Sentence Not Needed The eventual sentence will be determined by the court and according to Correa’s attorney, David Wikstrom, there is sufficient reason to forgo a prison sentence altogether. In a letter to the court, the attorney sums up several reasons why Correa should not be incarcerated, including the lack of a financial motive. If anything, his involvement with The Scene had cost the defendant money. No Financial Incentive “His offense — unlike the vast majority of federal crimes, and in particular criminal copyright infringement offenses — was not motivated by pursuit of financial gain, and in fact Mr. Correa lost money committing it. “Money was not the point; it was a hobby, verging on compulsion: to gain entry to and acceptance in The Scene, to be the first to copy and upload a release into a purportedly members-only, secretive club,” the attorney adds. While the defendant didn’t make any money, Hollywood studios were allegedly harmed by his activities. According to the calculations, Correa caused $54,000 in damages. This is a relatively low amount, however, and the defendant has agreed to fully compensate the Motion Picture Association. Limited Role Correa’s role in the conspiracy itself was also limited, according to his attorney. The other co-conspirators had organizational roles but Correa mostly ripped DVD and Blu-Ray discs that he purchased himself before uploading to Scene servers. “He did not sell copies into the market; indeed his understanding was that selling his copies into the market would cause him to be banned from the group,” the attorney clarifies. To outsiders, members of The Scene have an air of mystique. However, in reality, most of the people involved are just ‘ordinary’ men and women who could easily be your next-door neighbors. This applies to Correa as well, who has a family and runs a business with dozens of employees. A Family and a Business “The Defendant is a nonviolent first offender with a lifetime of gainful employment. He lives with and supports his family, including his wife, child and grandchild,” the attorney writes. “From his beginnings as a house painter for his brother’s company at age 21, he now, 16 years later, owns and manages two companies […] which work on projects throughout Kansas and Missouri, and which have 32 full-time employees and dozens of other subcontractors, who likewise support families.” These factors weigh in favor of not sending Correa to prison, his lawyer notes, offering 14 letters from family and friends who describe the defendant as a selfless and hardworking man. The question that remains is why Correa was drawn to The Scene. The attorney offers some background on this as well. While we see no value in describing all personal details, providing some context is appropriate. The Scene as an Outlet What’s clear from the letter is that Correa didn’t have an easy youth. The extreme religious beliefs of his family weighed heavy but during his teenage years he found an outlet in computers, the Internet, and piracy in particular. Like many others, Correa began sharing TV shows and movies for his personal entertainment. Over the years, he got more heavily involved in the supply side as well. He eventually became a ‘racer’ for the ‘Third Party’ group (ThP), which was part of The Scene. After graduating from high school things changed. Correa cut his ties with The Scene and started building his offline career, first working as a cable technician and later as a painter. When the SPARKS group started in 2011, Correa was not in any way involved. Reconnecting That changed in 2016, more than a decade after leaving The Scene behind. Correa’s interest in his old habit picked up again and he went looking for old friends on IRC and reconnected with “Silent,” who later introduced him to “Artist,” who allegedly ran the SPARKS group. One thing led to another and after more than ten years, Correa was part of The Scene again. In addition to running his family and business, he spent hours every night and thousands of dollars on equipment to fulfill his online passion. The motivation wasn’t to get stuff for free, as Correa also paid for subscription services like Netflix, Amazon, HBO, and Hulu. The main driver was recognition and bragging rights, the same things that kept him going earlier in his life. “As already noted, he didn’t do it for the money. This was his hobby, his compulsion. He worked all day, spent time at home in the evenings with his wife, and then after she went to bed, spent hours in front of the computer competing to be the fastest to upload a copy of a DVD to an FTP server. “It was, in fact, a precise reenactment of his teenage years, sneaking onto the internet to watch movies after his mother and siblings went to sleep,” the attorney adds. Correa and his attorney hope that, given this background, the Court will agree to a non-incarceratory sentence. The outcome will become clear in a few weeks when the final sentence is handed down. — A copy of the letter attorney David Wikstrom sent on behalf of Mr. Correa is available here (pdf)
  18. Pirate sites are considered a threat by the majority of today's legal streaming platforms but at least one can say it directly benefited from them. According to a former key member of Hulu's marketing team, the launch of Hulu Plus saw pirate sites given an option - either find themselves sued or plaster their sites with links to the fledgling platform. The strategy paid off. More than a 13 years ago, in the same year that Netflix took its business online, a new service called Hulu made its debut. In common with its competitor, Hulu – founded by News Corporation and NBC Universal – hoped to take a decent slice of the fledgling streaming market and with the later addition of Disney, this dream slowly began to take shape. Three years later Hulu launched Hulu Plus, offering full seasons of TV shows and instant access to new episodes. Today, Hulu is a success story, offering three products – Hulu basic, Hulu with no ads, and the range-topping Hulu + Live TV. As of late last year, Hulu had more than 36 million subscribers but it’s the way that the service went from zero to two million that today piques our interest. When it Came to Streaming, 2010 Was Still the Wild West In 2010, unlicensed streaming link sites such as Surf The Channel were pulling in large numbers of eyeballs, around 400,000 per day in this platform’s case. That earned the site’s operator a four-year prison sentence for facilitating copyright infringement but many more similar sites remained operational, filling in the gaps underserved by the legal services of the day. Today, running a pirate platform is much less straightforward but the fact remains that their ‘pirate’ users are potential customers for legal services. The big question is how to reach them. It would be unthinkable to market a legal service on a pirate site in the current climate but back in 2010, it transpires that Hulu Plus was unafraid to do so. Hulu Plus Marketed Itself Directly on Pirate Sites On Twitter yesterday an interesting discussion was triggered by Patrick OShaughnessy who asked a straightforward question: What is the most clever customer acquisition strategy you’ve ever seen? A response came from Jay Rockman, who previously worked as a key member of Hulu’s marketing team. He retold a story from the launch of Hulu Plus that reveals that rather than treating pirates as the enemy, Hulu made the decision to target them directly, on their platforms of choice. “A fun story… when Hulu Plus launched, I contacted every illegal streaming listings site (with great SEO/20M+ uniques per month each) before Google was forced to remove them from organic search listings,” Rockman explained. “Most were foreign operated… Cyprus, Russia.. I told them instead of suing them I’d like them to skin their sites with Hulu Plus ads on every single page of their sites. They had no better way to monetize so I offered them all a $0.50 CPM and in some cases an affiliate fee,” he continued. The Strategy Worked, Boosting Hulu Plus Subscriptions According to Rockman, targeting pirates on their home turf really paid off. Sites like the hugely popular but now defunct TV-Links.eu carried Hulu Plus links which encouraged pirates to test out the fledgling streaming service either instead of, or in addition to, sailing the high seas. “[T]his strategy was a major contributor to [the] first 2M paid Hulu Plus subs,” Rockman revealed. “It was a long time ago, but the strategy is simple. Start [with] your value proposition and then consider how someone looking for that value behaves. In this case, Googling ‘watch gossip girl online free.’ All the top results were flooded with traffic. I had them all redirected to us.” Streaming Services Still Utilize Pirate Data Advertising on pirate sites today would be a big no-no for the vast majority of streaming services and even if they wanted to, the same technique would be much less effective. As Rockman points out, this only worked because pirate site links appeared prominently in Google search, something which is much less the case today. However, pirate data is still a useful resource. As reported back in 2013, Netflix admitted that it used the popularity of content on pirates sites to in part determine what TV series the company bought. In 2016, Hulu went on to reveal that it was doing the same, although we can presume that the days of paying pirate sites to promote legal content are long gone.
  19. Miami University student and security researcher Erik Johnson has filed a lawsuit against software company Proctorio, which used DMCA notices to remove several critical tweets. Johnson asked the court to declare that publishing code excerpts to document critique is fair use. Meanwhile, Proctario should pay damages for misusing the DMCA process. The DMCA takedown process give copyright holders the option to remove infringing content from the web. It is a powerful tool that’s used to take millions of URLs and links offline every day. In most cases, this happens for a good reason, but some takedown efforts are questionable. This week, college student Erik Johnson filed a lawsuit at a federal court in Arizona, accusing Proctorio of abusing the DMCA process. Represented by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), Johnson argues that the proctoring software vendor used DMCA notices to censor critique. The use of proctoring software has become more common during the COVID-19 pandemic. Tools such as Proctorio are used by schools and universities to surveil students, making sure that they follow the rules and don’t cheat. This type of software is seen as a necessity by some educators but they are not without critique. Features such as face detection, eye-movement tracking, and audio recording, are a step too far for many. This includes Miami University student and security researcher Erik Johnson, who decided to take a closer look at the software. In a series of tweets last summer, Johnson argued that Proctorio’s claims about its software were contradicted by its code, revealing how much access it has to users’ computers. To back up these claims, the student linked to excepts of the code that were readily accessible on his computer. Proctorio didn’t like the exposé. Soon after the tweets were published, the company’s CEO contacted Johnson through a private Twitter message, asking him to remove the content. The student refused to do so, which triggered a series of takedown requests targeting Twitter, GitHub, and Pastebin. The pressure didn’t stop there. The complaint also alleges that a representative from Proctorio asked Miami University to urge Johnson to remove the content. In addition, the software company banned the student’s IP-address, making it harder for him to take some exams. Despite the mounting pressure Johnson didn’t give in. Last November he teamed up with the EFF and this week they filed their lawsuit against Proctorio, asking the court to declare that the code excerpts and his tweets are not infringing any copyrights. “Johnson has made every effort to explain the lawfulness of his conduct to Proctorio, to no avail. To ensure that Proctorio will finally cease its efforts to abuse copyright law to interfere with his speech, Johnson has no choice but to seek a declaration of noninfringement,” the complaint reads. In addition, Johnson also requests compensation for the damages he suffered from Proctotio’s alleged abusive behavior, which is seen as a “misrepresentation” under the DMCA. “As a direct and proximate result of Proctorio’s actions, Johnson has been injured substantially and irreparably. Such injury includes, without limitation, the time and effort associated with responding to Proctorio’s multiple fraudulent infringement notices, as well as harm to his free speech rights under the First Amendment.” The above illustrates that the effects were much broader than the takedown requests alone. There are real consequences. In fact, the complaint notes that a professor informed Johnson that his application to work in the university’s IT Security department will likely be rejected due to the legal troubles with Proctorio. Commenting on the lawsuit, EFF Staff Attorney Cara Gagliano notes that software companies should never be allowed to abuse copyright law to undermine their critics. She hopes that the court will set the record straight. “Copyright holders should be held liable when they falsely accuse their critics of copyright infringement, especially when the goal is plainly to intimidate and undermine them,” Gagliano notes. Thus far, Johnson has already booked a few successes against Proctorio outside of court. Both Twitter and GitHub have restored content after he submitted a DMCA counternotice. We also reached out to Proctorio to hear its perspective on the lawsuit but the company didn’t immediately reply. What’s clear, however, is that its takedown efforts have backfired in possibly the worst way imaginable. — A copy of the complaint against Proctorio filed at a federal court in Arizona is available here (pdf)

  22. After completing a growth equity round of $50m, Plex has announced plans to become a one-stop-shop for movies and TV. The goal is to at least partially solve one of the most annoying problems in today's legal streaming market by placing all content in a single searchable interface. By default, this will also include users' 'pirate' libraries, an interesting proposition that could yield results. PlexSince being founded in 2009, the Plex media server and service has grown from strength to strength and with 25 million users worldwide, is now a force to be reckoned with. Early adopters know Plex as a powerful media server capable of transforming local movie, TV show, and other libraries into a beautiful Netflix-style entertainment experience. Playable on a wide range of devices including PCs, smart TVs and even smartphones, Plex has a strong cult following but in recent years has begun to spread its wings. While the company would prefer not to acknowledge it, Plex is the playback weapon of choice for millions of pirates. So-called “Plex for Share” services aside, direct piracy isn’t strictly possible within the system but when it is fed with movies and TV shows previously obtained from pirate sites, consumption of such media is transformed. The problem then, is how to tempt these users away from the ‘dark’ side. Plex Spreads its Wings In 2019, it was revealed that Plex had struck licensing deals with Warner Bros to supply free, ad-supported movies and TV shows to Plex users. Since then, Plex has added free live TV channels and secured more than 240 additional content deals with the likes of Lionsgate, MGM, Sony, AMC and more. This means that when ‘pirate’ users fire up Plex, they are not only presented with their own unlicensed content libraries but also official content too. This blurring of ‘markets’ is an intriguing proposition that hasn’t been strongly tested before. Legal movie and TV show content from major providers isn’t seen on pirate streaming sites, for example, meaning that users can’t be easily tempted away during their visits. However, by putting licensed content inside Plex, no external navigation is needed, making the switch to revenue-generating content a breeze. However, this innovation was only the beginning and according to an announcement Wednesday, Plex has an even bigger plan on the horizon, one that could transform the market. $50m in Funding Secured: One-Stop Shop For Movies and TV Yesterday, Plex revealed it had completed a growth equity round of $50 million from existing investor Intercap. The financing includes approximately $15 million in new capital for Plex, which the company intends to invest in its mission to become a one-stop-shop for movies and TV. It aims to do this by addressing one of the most frustrating aspects of today’s legal streaming market – fragmentation. “As the industry grows so does the media chaos, creating a more fractured consumer experience with a dizzying array of services and subscriptions – all served up through a multitude of platforms and apps that the consumer has to keep track of,” Plex explains. “This experience is painful for consumers who just want to find and easily navigate to movies and TV shows that they like.” What Plex has in mind is to present users with a “single pane of glass”, a window to access their entire content libraries from within Plex, enabling them to find what they want quickly and easily. “Everybody knows it’s a pain to sift through all the streaming services to find what you want to watch, and our goal at Plex is to manage your media life for you,” says Keith Valory, CEO at Plex. “Our job is to understand where everything is, whether it’s from our free library of movies and shows, a subscription service, live on TV, or something you can purchase, and for Plex to be the trusted go-to service to help you find what you want, when you want it.” One Interface, Endless Options At the moment, Plex users are presented with their local content libraries and Plex’s movies, TV shows and live TV streams. The plan as described thus far suggests that Plex also hopes to partner with platforms such as Netflix, Prime, and maybe even Disney, so that all content libraries are searchable from one place – a legal content metasearch engine of sorts. Whether these giants will have any interest in this proposal remains a question but it’s not difficult to see how such a system could be attractive to regular users while also becoming a valuable tool to leverage additional revenue from pirates. These days, only a minority of pirates are ‘hard core’, i.e they only consume content from pirate sources. The majority also consume legitimate content too and it’s not hard to find plenty who also have Netflix and Disney subscriptions, for example. However, instead of having pirates sit completely isolated in their own ecosystems, with no immediate opportunity to convert them (or more fully convert them) into paying customers, the Plex proposal appears to welcome them to the fold, making all content searchable from one location and potentially negating the need to switch in and out of numerous apps. That being said, there are problems to overcome. Subscription and Privacy Concerns Remain As things stand, even if users can easily search and discover content across multiple legal platforms in one interface, they’ll still be required to subscribe to those platforms to access the content. For Plex, this could provide a source of affiliate revenue when users choose to sign up but there are limits to how much consumers are prepared to spend. A nice option would be to offer a package of subscriptions at a significantly reduced rate (a Plex Pass Plus option, if you like) but in the current environment, there doesn’t appear to be much of an appetite among providers to consider that. Also, there are privacy concerns, particularly if Plex wants to assure its pirate and partially-pirate consumers to step onboard and begin the journey. “Plex will help users discover new things to enjoy based on everything they already watch, with smart recommendations such as ‘you watched this movie, so you might enjoy this podcast, or this musical artist.’ It’s all about creating a custom multi-media entertainment experience that’s easy and enjoyable for each individual’s unique tastes,” the company explains. While subscribers to Netflix and Disney are already used to these types of recommendations, it will remain to be seen how this is welcomed by pirate users. At this stage, it’s unknown whether Plex intends to start harvesting and/or sharing pirates’ viewing habits with their commercial partners. Also, things could get a little bit awkward if messages appear noting that “Since you watched yet-to-be-released-on-streaming-platforms ‘movie X’, then you might like to watch Y.” That problem is probably a long way off but nevertheless, Plex’s momentum towards official content partnerships is absolutely clear. Becoming a focal point for lawful content consumption could also mean it faces pressure to do something about piracy too, but only time will tell how that plays out. There are clear opportunities ahead though, including millions of chances to convert pirates while cleaning up the legal streaming market into something cohesive. Content source: TorrentFreak .
