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.

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.

OTEUpload is a file locker which carries some of the worst examples we have seen of blatant piracy and child exploitation content. It has been operating since 2012. Since it opened we have been responsible for removing several payment processing arrangements from this site.

Just under a year ago we forced the removal of their payment processing through Avangate.

It seems this file locker has not learnt it’s lesson as piracy and child pornography proliferate on this site.

This week OTEUpload.com contacted us, wanting us to work with them.

Subject: Request

Hello,

I am not sure if you ever recieved my previous message. I am the owner of OTE Network LLC, we have launched our first site OTEUpload.com in a stream of online services. We are happy to help you with whatever you need. If you are interested feel free to add me on skype or something else at OTE_Stephen and would like to have a chat with you or someone from your team. We have partnered ACIUF in the past and are willing to help with whatever you might find useful.

Thanks for your consideration.

I’m not sure if John got the memo, however the only assistance we will provide to sites that purposely deal in piracy and child exploitation is to guide them to closure and bankruptcy, perhaps even prison.

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.

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

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.

UltraMegaBit: Piracy outfit to be shut down

by Editor on April 4, 2013

UltraMegaBit.com is a criminal copyright infringement conspiracy designed to deprive rights holders of income by making copyright material available in an unlawful manner.

UltraMegaBit.com has been featured before on this site. The first time was last year when we labeled UltraMegaBit the new pirate cove. The second and third time were when we explored vast amounts of copyright infringement taking place on the site.

Lumfile. Worst of the worst.

by Editor on April 2, 2013

Lumfile.com is a file locker that has been on our radar for many months. We have taken various mitigation actions against Lumfile over the past nine months. Unfortunately, the site remains a problem however it’s a problem we are determined to resolve.

Last year Lumfile lost it’s hosting in Canada due to the prevalence of illegal content on the site, then in November 2012 the site was one of many terminated by payment processor Avangate. Now the site uses alternative methods of payment processing and routinely ignores DMCA notices issued to it.

Mega Piracy: It’s just the beginning

by Editor on January 23, 2013

Mega has only been live a few days, however it’s already becoming a go to place for pirates wanting to share copyright infringing content.

We have detected numerous instances of Mega being used to distribute copyright content including cracks (software to circumvent copyright protection), music, movies and software.

Given that Mega says that it encrypts every file uploaded to it, many pirates are seeing it as the perfect storage vehicle for content that they are wanting to share with other pirates or that they wish to store in safe keeping to hang on to should their other distribution methods come under attack by anti-piracy groups.

Let’s examine some of what we have found so far.

Movies are being shared on Mega from piracy websites. This 2008 movie “Defiance” is being shared from a piracy blog and hosted at Mega for download.

Hotfile terminated by Paypal.

by Editor on January 21, 2013

Today Paypal took action to terminate it’s relationship with Hotfile.

Hotfile is one of the largest sites on the Internet. A site which has attracted criticism from numerous anti-piracy groups, rights holder associations and rights holders. Having been embroiled in litigation over allegations it encouraged and facilitated copyright infringement it should have expected this day to come.

Unfortunately it is too often the case that where we find a blatant disregard of copyrights we also find a blatant disregard of human rights.

Recently a young woman was raped in the presence of her partner on a bus in India, a crime which took the life of an innocent victim. The case sent shockwaves around the world as it was noted for it’s savagery and ferociousness. At the same time as the world condemned the mistreatment of women, Hotfile was busy allowing people to share content purporting to depict rape, torture, incest and bestiality.

While the MPAA was taking Hotfile to task for breaches of copyright, we took a holistic view of the systemic problems with the Hotfile service. After substantial examination and research we came up with one simple conclusion. Hotfile is a haven for the sharing of copyright and illegal content.

Paypal took the appropriate action against Hotfile and we would encourage any other payment processor considering doing business with this site to think twice before allowing Hotfile to continue.
