Anti-piracy Outfit Will Shut Down Proxy Operator

The Dutch anti-piracy outfit BREIN has recently obtained a court order to close down the operator of a proxy site, which was widely used to access the world’s largest BitTorrent tracker The Pirate Bay.


The above mentioned proxy website is tpb.dehomies.nl. After the Court of The Hague ruled in favor of the pro-copyright organization, the operator is now bound to close down the site. In case the service fails to comply, it will have to pay a $1,700 fine per each day that passes.

Besides this, the anti-piracy outfit also won a couple of important legal battles with Holland’s largest Internet service providers, forcing them to block access to the BitTorrent tracker The Pirate Bay. Nevertheless, just as the experts predicted, Internet users have found various ways to get access to the tracker, including the method of using different proxy servers.

After successfully shutting down one of the proxy operators, the anti-piracy outfit has sent out letters to a number of other sites providing similar services and threatened them with legal action in case of them continuing their operations.

Tim Kuik, the director of BREIN, has claimed during the interview that if the operators of the proxy websites didn’t comply with their request, the outfit would keep them responsible for damages.

Meanwhile, the experts observe the same story going on in the United Kingdom, where last month the High Court of the country decided that both the operators of The Pirate Bay and its users are liable for copyright violation. This means that in result of this ruling, 6 of the country’s largest Internet service providers could be forced to block access to the popular BitTorrent tracker.
