It's taken more than two years for Swedish authorities to seize two key Pirate Bay domains but over in the United States the process is dramatically quicker. A TV company has just achieved similar aims against 11 'pirate' streaming domains after being granted a comprehensive ex parte restraining order by a Florida court. One the biggest piracy-related stories of the year broke this week after Swedish authorities succeeded in their quest to take over two key Pirate Bay domains. The court order, handed down Tuesday, will see ThePirateBay.se and PirateBay.se fall under the control of the Swedish government, provided no appeal is filed in the coming weeks. Itâ€™s been a long and drawn out process but given the siteâ€™s history, one with an almost inevitable outcome. Over in the United States and spurred on by â€˜rogueâ€™ sites such as TPB, much attention has been focused on depriving â€˜pirateâ€™ sites of their essential infrastructure, domains included. Just last week the MPAA and RIAA appeared before the House Judiciary Committeeâ€™s Internet subcommittee complaining that ICANN isnâ€™t doing enough to deal with infringing domains. Of course, having ICANN quickly suspend domains would be convenient, but entertainment industry groups arenâ€™t completely helpless. In fact, yet another complaint filed in the United States by TV company ABS-CBN shows how easily it is to take control of allegedly infringing domains. The architect of several recent copyright infringement complaints, in its latest action ABS-CBN requested assistance from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida. The TV company complained that eleven sites (listed below) have been infringing its rights by offering content without permission. To protect its business moving forward ABS-CBN requested an immediate restraining order and after an ex parte hearing, District Court Judge William P. Dimitrouleas was happy to oblige. In an order (pdf) handed down May 15 (one day after the complaint was filed) Judge Dimitrouleas acknowledges that the sites unlawfully â€œadvertised, promoted, offered for distribution, distributed or performedâ€ copyrighted works while infringing on ABS-CBN trademarks. He further accepted that the sites were likely to continue their infringement and cause â€œirreparable injuryâ€ to the TV company in the absence of protection by the Court. Granting a temporary order (which will become preliminary and then permanent in the absence of any defense by the sites in question) the Judge restrained the site operators from further infringing on ABS-CBN copyrights and trademarks. However, it is the domain element that provokes the most interest. In addition to ordering the sitesâ€™ operators not to transfer any domains until the Court advises, Judge Dimitrouleas ordered the registrars of the domains to transfer their certificates to ABS-CBNâ€™s counsel. Registrars must then lock the domains and inform their registrants what has taken place. Furthermore, the Whois privacy protection services active on the domains and used to conceal registrant identities are ordered to hand over the site operatorsâ€™ personal details to ABS-CBN so that the TV company is able to send a copy of the restraining order. If no active email address is present in Whois records, ABS-CBN is allowed to contact the defendants via their websites. Once this stage is complete the domain registrars are ordered to transfer the domains to a new registrar of ABS-CBNâ€™s choosing. However, if the registrars fail to act within 24 hours, the TLD registries (.COM etc) must take overriding action within five days. The Court also ordered ABS-CBNâ€™s registrar to redirect any visitors to the domains to a specific URL (http://servingnotice.com/BL4G47/index.html) which is supposed to contain a copy of the order. At the time of writing, however, that URL is non-functional. Also of interest is how the Court locks down attempts to get the sites running again. In addition to expanding the restraining order to any new domains the site operators may choose to move to, the Court grants ABS-CBN access to Google Webmaster Tools so that the company may â€œcancel any redirection of the domains that have been entered there by Defendants which redirect traffic to the counterfeit operations to a new domain name or website.â€ The domains affected are: freepinoychannel.com, lambingan.to, pinoymovie.to, pinoynetwork.to, pinoytambayan-replay.com, pinoytambayantv.com, tambaytayo.com, tvnijuan.net, phstream.com, streampinoy.info and tambayanatin.com. Despite the order having been issued last Thursday, at the time of writing all but one of the domains remains operational. Furthermore, and in an interesting twist, pinoymovie.to and pinoynetwork.to have already skipped to fresh domains operated by none other than the Swedish administered .SE registry. https://torrentfreak.com/pirate-domain-seizures-are-easy-in-the-united-states-150521/
The latest UK IP Crime Report reveals that significant progress is being made in the fight against online piracy but still many challenges remain. One of the main problems traces back to U.S. hosting companies, who according to the report give shelter to most of the investigated pirate sites. The latest UK IP Crime Report reveals that significant progress is being made in the fight against online piracy but still many challenges remain. One of the main problems traces back to U.S. hosting companies, who according to the report give shelter to most of the investigated pirate sites. The figure above comes as a bit of a surprise, as one would expect that United States authorities and industry groups would have been keeping their own houses in order. Just a few months ago the US-based IIPA, which includes MPAA and RIAA as members, called out Canada because local hosting providers are â€œa magnetâ€ for pirate sites. However, it now appears they have still plenty of work to do inside U.S. borders. But even when hosting companies are responsive to complaints from rightsholders the problem doesnâ€™t always go away. The report mentions that most sites simply move on to another host, and continue business as usual there. â€œIn 2013, FACT closed a website after approaching the hosting provider on 63 occasions. Although this can be a very effective strategy, in most instances the website is swiftly transferred onto servers owned by another ISP, often located outside the UK.â€ While downtime may indeed be relatively brief the report claims that it may still hurt the site, as visitors may move on to other legitimate or illegitimate sources. â€œThe [moving] process usually involves a disruptive period of time whereby the website is offline, during which users will often find an alternative service, thus negatively affecting the websiteâ€™s popularity.â€ While hosting companies remain a main target, tackling the online piracy problem requires a multi-layered approach according to the UK Crime Group. With the help of local law enforcement groups such as City of Londonâ€™s PIPCU, copyright holders have rolled out a variety of anti-piracy measures in recent months. This includes domain name suspensions, cutting off payment processors and ad revenue, website blocking by ISPs and criminal prosecutions. These and other efforts are expected to continue during the years to come. Whether that will be enough to put a real dent in piracy rates has yet to be seen.
