Advertising Networks and Registrar Were Ruled to Ban Pirate Site

A U.S. District Court judge recently issued a preliminary injunction against a few advertising networks and a registrar of a website offering illegal e-books. As a result, advertising networks called Chitika and Clicksor are forbidden to serve advertisements to the service. Meanwhile, Enom’s Whois Privacy Protection Service is required to pass over personal details of the service’s owner, as well as to make the website inaccessible.

Nowadays there are many strategies that can be employed to shut down websites involved in digital piracy. One of such strategies is pursuing the advertising networks of the services to deprive them of revenue streams. Another one is to address the domain registrars in order to force them to disable access to the pirate websites.

Both of the described strategies were used in a lawsuit filed at the Massachusetts District Court. The plaintiffs, book publishers Elsevier and John Wiley&Sons launched a suit against the domain registrar Enom’s Who's Privacy Protection Service and Clicksor and Chitika ad-networks. What they have in common is that all of them provided services to a website offering pirated e-books, which was called Pharmatext.org.

The plaintiffs preferred to sue the registrar and advertisers of the illegal service instead of pursuing the site’s owners. Unsurprisingly, this was quite a successful attempt: Judge Richard Stearns has already issued a preliminary injunction which requires the registrar to disclose the Pharmatext owner’s identity, as well as their bank accounts. Moreover, the registrar is forced to take its best to disable the site and prevent the Pharmatext.org domain name from being transferred.

Meanwhile, the website’s advertisers, Clicksor and Chitika, have been required to cease any outstanding payments to the site owner and stop doing any business with them, both related to Pharmatext.org website and any other illegal service they may start afterwards.

It is supposed that this court decision will set a unique precedent leading to more similar cases in the near future. As you can see, pursuing the registrar appeared to be quite an effective way to quickly shut down an illegal website. Perhaps, the digital world will see such strategies being used against P2P sites, instead of going after the sites operators. Time will tell.

No avatarUnfortunately, governments seem to have cottoned on to the idea of making money out of persecting file sharers, and as a means of MASS CONTROL.

It's bad enough, in fact stinks beyond belief when this is carried out by extremely filthy rich companies backed by filthy rich lawyers.

What a corrupt world we live in!!!!
