The following sites have lost payment processing accounts since the 10th of October.
It should be noted that both freakshare.com and bitshare.com have backup payment processing with Digital River and are currently using Avangate.
Avangate has become the new go to payment processor for infringing file lockers. The number of file lockers they process payments for increases every week. This is no doubt going to attract the interest of other parties with whom Avangate have relationships.
Avangate’s decision to harbour the infringing file locker industry raises it’s risk profile to a very high level and shows absolute contempt for it’s existing software publisher customer base who have their products pirated on file lockers that Avangate process payments for.
NOTES Copy Control does not claim responsibility for these or any other Paypal terminations. Many organisations work to deal with infringing sites. Some of these sites may have been reported earlier then re-reported as they continued to process with Paypal. This information is current at the time of publication and is subject to change.
