Music Industry Planned Massive File-Sharing Shutdowns

After major Internet service providers of the United Kingdom blocked The Pirate Bay under the court order, music labels of the BPI are going to target some other major torrent websites – for instance, H33T, Demonoid, TorrentReactor, and even us.


After the UK regulator (Ofcom) published the Initial Obligations Code for the Digital Economy Act (DEA), the country’s government promised to remove two arguable sections from the bill. According to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, sections 17 and 18 will be removed from the DEA. Both of these provisions emphasized that online services providing access to copyrighted content were to be blocked by Internet service providers.

Apparently, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport realized that these two sections aren’t needed because infringing services can be blocked under the existing law. The best example is well known by everyone who has ever heard of Newzbin2, a Usenet indexing site, and how it was blocked by the British broadband providers.

Music licensing group PPL has sent a letter to its members, saying that not only The Pirate Bay is under their scope, but also other similar BitTorrent services exist that provide facilities through which the web users are able to illegally download copyrighted content and illegally make it available to other online users. The list of such services includes TorrentReactor, Demonoid, Fenopy, Kickass Torrents, H33T, and our Extratorrent as well, of course.

In addition, the PPL recommended that online services that provide legitimate content should contact the BPI’s legal team as soon as possible.
