  1. The makers of the movie 'Hellboy' have failed to obtain a default judgment against the operator of the now-defunct torrent site MKVCage. A federal court in Hawaii ruled that US courts don't have jurisdiction over the foreign defendant, and have denied the request for $150,000 in piracy damages. The movie company is considering to appeal the ruling. Last year, the makers of the superhero film “Hellboy” (HB Productions) filed a lawsuit against torrent site MKVCage at a Hawaii federal court. The movie company accused the site and its operator o
  2. A federal court in Arizona has ordered a local couple to pay $35,000 for sharing pirated copies of the films “Lost Child” and “Saving Christmas.” This includes $5,000 for distributing the movies with altered “copyright management information,” such as the pirate term YTS. The couple failed to defend in court but repeatedly indicated, in rather profane language, that they're not planning to pay a dime. Over the years, hundreds of thousands of people have been accused of sharing pirated movies through BitTorrent. Quite often, these cases end up in private and u
  3. Anti-piracy lawyer Kerry Culpepper has failed to secure $250,000 damages claims against sites and apps that used the YTS trademark he obtained. The court dismissed the case as it lacks sufficient evidence to prove that the defendants purposefully targeted the US. Meanwhile, the trademark infringement claims shed an interesting light on related YTS cases that were filed recently. Brands are important for most businesses. They identify a service or product and are often associated with certain qualities. The position is no different in the piracy ecosys
  4. In a new complaint filed at a Hawaii federal court, 19 'John Does' are accused of sharing pirated copies of the film Ava. The defendants, who are only known by their IP-addresses, are described as users of the site YTS. While there is no hard evidence to back up all claims, the accused may still be in trouble. In recent months we have reported in detail how users of the popular torrent site YTS were sued in US courts. In several of these cases, information shared by the site’s operator was brought in as evidence. The user info was obtained b
  5. The operators of several YTS-branded apps and sites may escape a $250,000 damages claim from Hawaiian anti-piracy lawyer Kerry Culpepper, who accused them of trademark infringement, In a recommendation issued to the court, Magistrate Judge Wes Reber Porter notes that there isn't sufficient evidence that the defendants purposefully targeted the US. Earlier this year, Hawaiian anti-piracy lawyer Kerry Culpepper turned some of the most popular piracy brands into a powerful anti-piracy tool. The attorney, who is listed as director of the company
  6. Two movie companies have filed a lawsuit accusing an Arizona couple of downloading and sharing its movies through the YTS website. The husband and wife pair initially appeared to resolve the issue with an out-of-court settlement. However, instead of paying up, the husband lashed out in a tirade against the movie companies' lawyer, while accusing him of spying on their three-year-old kid. Piracy warnings come in all shapes and sizes. While some notices have no teeth, others should be handled with extreme caution. Typically, alarm bells should
  7. Anti-piracy lawyer Kerry Culpepper has filed an application to register the RARBG trademark. RARBG is one of the most popular torrent sites and, if the application is granted, the trademark can be used for enforcement purposes. The same happened with the Popcorn Time and YTS trademarks earlier this year. Copyright holders can take a wide variety of measures to address piracy, with some being more effective than others. Hawaii-based attorney Kerry Culpepper has tried several different approaches. Given his profession, most of these take p
  8. Last week, 1337x.to decided to ban YTS releases when it became apparent that information from the site's database was being used in lawsuits against file-sharers. Over the past few days, more torrent sites followed this example which, strangely enough, has made them a target as well. Over the past week and a half, we have documented a series of events that the torrent community has never witnessed before. It started when we were able to confirm that the supposed operator of YTS shared information from the site’s user base with Hawaiian anti-piracy
