Hotfile.com Closed

by Editor on December 5, 2013

Today Hotfile closed for business. This is a watershed achievement for all those involved in bringing Hotfile to account for it’s massive copyright infringement.

Hotfile com

Earlier this year, we had Hotfile terminated by Paypal. This was a massive hit to Hotfile’s finances as memberships paid via Paypal was it’s largest source of income. Hotfile was also in court with the MPAA who finally won the case against this cyberlocker.

As a result, Hotfile closed with the notice displayed in the image above. All files are now gone.

The Hotfile case proves that no file locker, no matter how big or small, can survive the will of rights holders to take commercial copyright infringement head on.

Netload.in is in liquidation.

by Editor on November 21, 2013

Netload recently lost access to Paypal again and it now seems the company which owns Netload is now in liquidation.

Netload liquidation

It is possible this is the beginning of the end for Netload, or it could be that the owners will relocate ownership of the site to another jurisdiction.

While the company is in liquidation assets can be sold off and unsecured creditors, including uploaders may lose their money owed by the company.

Google Adwords provides income to File Lockers

by Editor on October 26, 2013

Internet Ad Networks, such as Google Adwords, are one of several revenue streams for file lockers. Increasingly cyber lockers are turning to advertising as a source of income as it becomes more difficult to find payment processing arrangements.

Google Adsense

Google has an extensive terms of service when it comes to where it is appropriate to place Adsense ads and most file lockers are in breach of these terms.

AdSense publishers may not display Google ads on webpages with content protected by copyright law unless they have the necessary legal rights to display that content. This includes sites that display copyrighted material, sites hosting copyrighted files, or sites that provide links driving traffic to sites that contain copyrighted material.

Beginning the first week of November this year, we will begin a concerted campaign to have Google Adwords ads removed from file lockers and hopefully have Adsense accounts cancelled, thereby depriving these sites from this income stream.

Let’s look at some examples of file lockers using Adsense to display advertising.

UltraMegaBit

Ultramegabit google adwords

On the front page of UltraMegabit there are two ad regions displaying Adsense ads. UltraMegabit has been featured on this blog before for it’s repeat copyright infringement and the paying of people to upload copyright infringing content.

UltraMegaBit – Still a hub for piracy

by Editor on September 6, 2013

UltraMegaBit, a file locker owned by Rudy Corella, is still conducting it’s illegal business of criminal copyright infringement.

We have previously explored the rampant piracy on UltraMegaBit and many months on we find that nothing has changed.

ULTRAMEGABIT COM Breakout 2013 DVDRip XviD 3LT0N avi

It’s almost certain UltraMegaBit has not entered into licensing arrangements to distribute DVD rips of movies.

UltraMegaBit is also a venue for the rampant piracy of pornography.

However, behind every infringing file locker stands a web hosting company. In the case of UltraMegaBit the hosting company is Choopa.com

Dedicated Servers Managed Hosting Web Hosting Choopa com

Choopa.com profit from piracy by harbouring sites like UltraMegaBit.com, they know this yet turn a blind eye. Presumably the money they make from pandering to pirates is lucrative enough that they don’t care about the damage that is done by rights holders.
