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, 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.

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.

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.
