Earlier this week we reported on FileOM providing pirated webcam videos for sale. Now we have found more than 80,000 pirated webcam videos available from UltraMegaBit.

UltraMegaBit.com is run by Rudy Corella who we have written about many times on this blog, most recently for UltraMegaBit selling pirated porn and before that we wrote about Rudy Corella and his company Ultra Mega Corp being fined by the Washington State Attorney General for misleading and deceptive practices.

In all our investigations of UltraMegaBit we have not found one instance where a rights holder has made their content legally available via his service. UltraMegaBit is simply a 100% piracy operation where Rudy Corella cashes in on the theft of content.

Webcam Piracy

In recent examination of UltraMegaBit we have found more than 80,000 illegally shared, or pirated, videos of webcam performers from almost every major webcam studio.

Many of these videos are made available to premium members only, which means that people have to pay UltraMegaBit to access this stolen content.

FileOM: Full of Pirated Webcam Videos

by Editor on July 7, 2014

There are many sites dedicated to providing live webcam shows to men who pay to watch women perform certain sexual acts, or even just chat online.

These cam performers often work on sites which geoblock their own countries and work using aliases so that their true identity is kept as private as possible.

There is a great demand for copies of videos of these performances and many cam sites sell these to their customers, however like everything else in demand, the pirate file lockers cash in on this popularity and make tens of thousands of cam performance videos available, usually in exchange for a paid membership

One serious offender in this space is FileOM.com, a problematic file locker which we would consider one of our highest priority targets.

Rudy Corella, recently fined by the State of Washington for misleading and deceptive practices, is still at it.

He continues to profit from copyright infringing content, selling access to pirated porn from his UltraMegaBit file locker service.

Obviously his credit card processing falls into the high risk category, so we’ll be doing what we can to bring this issue to the attention of his bank and his credit card processor and acquirer.

We’ve detected thousands of instances of copyright infringing pornographic material being distributed on UltraMegaBit.

Two Years of the Stop File Lockers Project

by Editor on June 28, 2014

Today marks two years since this project began.

In that time we have shut down more one or more forms of payment processing for more than 1400 sites. We have shut down the payment processing for 734 file lockers and we have seen more than 700 blogs, forums and file lockers killed completely either because they could not fund their site any longer or they grew tired of the relentless pressure we put on them.

When we began we had identified around 1500 file lockers big and small and now that number has dwindled to 697.

Our biggest challenge to date has been bringing down the big file lockers – however while they are not down yet we have impacted their payment processing on numerous occasions.

Our challenge now is to take the fight right up to the largest file lockers to deprive them of access to credit card processing.

Sites like File Factory, Netload, Rapidgator, Keep2Share, Uploaded, Mega, UltraMegaBit and many more are in our sights and we intend to cut off every single monetisation method they use.

This is not a sprint but a marathon and we will pursue this project until it reaches it’s natural conclusion.

Rapidgator still a huge Piracy Site

by Editor on June 12, 2014

Rapidgator.net is still a major infringer of copyright, hosting millions of copyright infringing files. This site is a repeat offender, no sooner is a copyright take down notice issued for an item of stolen content Rapidgator will have it’s army of paid uploaders re-upload the content for the abuse to continue.

No content producer or software company is immune from the enormous amount of copyright infringement that occurs on Rapidgator. Mainstream movies, latest release software, video games, television shows and even extreme pornography is made available.

Rapidgator offer a very limited download service for free, providing much better access and greater speed and download limits for paid members.

Membership to download as much stolen content as you wish can be purchased using a Visa or Mastercard amongst other more obscure payment methods.

UltraMegabit Penalised for Deceptive Practices.

by Editor on February 28, 2014

Rudy Corella and his shady file locker UltraMegaBit.com have been penalised for deceptive practices. This is not the first time Rudy Corella has been taken to task by the Washington State.

In a statement released by the Washington State Attorney Generals department the following is outlined.

AG recovers $20K in settlement with Internet “file-locker” website, consumers to receive money from defendant
SEATTLE — The Washington State Attorney General’s Office (AGO) has recovered $20,000 from Rudy O. Corella, Jr., owner of Ultra Mega Corp to resolve allegations that Ultra Mega Corp engaged in a number of deceptive business practices in violation of the Washington state Consumer Protection Act.

Ultra Mega Corp, LLC (UMB) otherwise known as www.ultramegabit.com is a California corporation doing business via the Internet. UMB is a “file locker” — a website that stores files online and provides the opportunity for the files to be downloaded.

Unless a consumer purchases a membership, downloads are limited. Consumers may purchase memberships for $9.50 per month or $52 for six months.

The AGO alleges UMB failed to adequately disclose that member subscription plans automatically renew without the member’s approval. Additional deceptive business practices include:

• Failure to disclose that some content may be copyrighted and therefore illegal to download; and
• Implicitly leading members to believe they are accessing content legally on UMB by charging for access to that content.

“Ultra Mega Corp’s business model was confusing to consumers who are familiar with companies like Netflix or other companies that charge consumers a monthly fee to legally watch TV shows and movies,” said Assistant Attorney General Jake Bernstein, the lead on this case.

“The AGO investigation revealed that the most popular files stored on UMB are copyrighted works, such as TV shows and movies, that members can not legally download,” Bernstein said. “UMB members were unknowingly downloading copyrighted content illegally, opening themselves up to potential lawsuits by content owners, as occurred with Napster and the music industry.”

UMB does not provide any content on its own; rather, UMB pays affiliates to upload files that become available for UMB’s members to download. UMB actively solicits for and pays its affiliates up to $35 for every 1000 downloads that the affiliates’ files achieve.

The $20,000 recovered from Corella will go toward the AGO’S costs and fees.

Separately, Corella will email Washington state consumers who bought a premium membership between January 1, 2012 and November 20, 2013 and offer them a refund if they were charged for an automatically renewed membership that they did not want and did not make use of.

Consumers who bought memberships to this service, who do not hear from Corella, should file a complaint with the AGO.

Rudy Corella is the lead conspirator in the UltraMegaBit piracy outfit, owning the company. He has also had several run ins with the law over his dishonest activities such as his involvement with Elite Torrents and the sale of ScareWare fake antivirus products which misled consumers.

As we further pursue pirates, we have continued to target piracy sites accepting donations.

Many pirates seek to offset server and web hosting costs by accepting donations using Paypal, Moneybookers, Payza and other methods. However using our sophisticated web crawling and detection methods we are making this much harder for the pirates.

Below is a list of sites which have lost the ability to receive donations using various methods.
