Portuguese Movie Association Decided to DDoS The Courts

Portuguese Movie Association Decided to DDoS The Courts

One of many movie interests associations recently announced an “innovative” strategy: ACAPOR, which had previously tried to get the world’s largest BitTorrent tracker The Pirate Bay blocked in their country, and later had their emails leaked by Operation Payback, announced that it is going to make legal history another way. In short words, the association will report a huge number of copyright infringers to the authorities. For those who didn’t understand the aim, it’s simple – to have the law for infringements made less severe.

Just 4 months ago, movie rental association ACAPOR was filing a complaint against the BitTorrent tracker website The Pirate Bay with the Portuguese Ministry of Culture, blaming the service for 15 million unauthorized downloads in their home country every year. At the moment the association required that the Portuguese broadband providers take similar action to The Pirate Bay as in Italy, and block access to it. Meanwhile, the outfit had a parallel action, filing a complaint against Piratatuga.net, an extremely popular resource among the Portuguese file-sharing service. The latter was also blamed for billions of downloads, and the group requested a criminal investigation.

However, after having taken action against online services engaged in facilitating the transfers undertaken by file-sharers, the movie interests association named ACAPOR, which was recently in news for having its emails hacked by Operation Payback, has now decided to widen its approach somewhat. As soon as next week, the outfit is going to start reporting thousands of infringers to the authorities. Their aim is to have punishments for infringers made less severe.

The group’s President pointed out that there was only one case brought against a Portuguese file-sharer, which makes him think of the country’s current system as “outdated” and call for a Portuguese legislation to be changed into somewhat resembling the French “graduated response” system. In other words, they think that it would be better for the infringers to replace the jail sentence for a cut in Internet access, but this approach needs many precedents. That’s why next week ACAPOR will start filing a huge collection of criminal complaints against file-sharers. The number of complaints submitted is estimated at 1,000 per month. Actually, the only thing this approach resembles is a Denial of Service attack on the courts.

deepstatus avatarF*** them!!!

ACAPOR is saying that in January go to the police with IP's of people that download movies

now if you are Portuguese and if you are reading this pay attention...

is a crime by ACAPOR do that in Portuguese law because they not are a Institution with autority to do that, doing that is invading your personnel privacy dont be foul our lawyers dont give a shit about you so you have to move by yourself
another thing is how they can confirm that the IP that they give is actually yours... if this appends to you move by yourself and dont be scared

hey ACAPOR come after me!!!! i change my IP more that 10 times a day!!!!!

4uckAuthority avatarlol #1....hence, why it won't work. and go figure, its the movie rental association...another group claiming to be losing money on something that they're doing none of the work to create, sooner or later you would think that artists (movie/music) would get sick of everybody trying to make a dime off their work and would try to come up with their own way of working with the internet to benefit themselves. from what i've heard, the artists that have experimented with using the internet, have made more than they would have by not using it. everybody knows they see none of the infringment money. as for the article, i don't understand what i'm reading....the association is gonna send a bunch of ip's of infringers to the courts in order to make the laws for infringing "less" severe?

Dan_Alex avatar@deepstatus: I hope you're right... I think the only way anyone can establish a connection between one IP and an internet account, in a determined period of time, is requesting that information from the ISPs. I hope these companies will try to protect their clients privacy, although I belive they will readily comply to the requests made by anyone threatening them with legal actions... They're spineless money-grubbers, interested only in making a buck.
Also, I would like to have an opinion from an expert in this area, maybe a portuguese lawyer who will read this, so we can know for sure what we can do. For now, GO ANONYMOUS! Show them for what they realy are (greedy sucubbus)!

menahunie avatarI have a questions?
This is an organization that represents movie rental companies for the rental of Portuguese movies and other movies are not the copyright holders to these movies?
So how can they sue anyone?
How can they file " criminal complaints" against internet users and force ISP's to do anything?
I know the joke about this country; BUT WTF..
here is an interesting link to what is happening to them; seems they can't even keep themselves from being hacking and losing their e mails...LMFAO....

No avatarHi,
I'm portuguese and I don't think that they will take this much furder because the courts all already full of useless cases to solve and if ACAPOR sends those IP's the judicial system would simply ignore those complaints, our country has more important things to be worried about now.

(sorry about my english) Be good
