aXXo’s “Home” Community Targeted by the MPAA

aXXo’s “Home” Community Targeted by the MPAA

Last week the MPAA had been reported to shut down a dozen BitTorrent websites in the US. Meanwhile, in addition to that dozen, 39 more torrent websites have been closed down in The Netherlands due to a MPAA tip-off. Although the MPAA didn’t name any of the closed websites, the news emerged that the file-sharing community called DarksideRG was one of the targets.


In cooperation with the Dutch anti-piracy organization BREIN, the Motion Picture Association of America recently shuttered twelve BitTorrent websites in the United States. At the same time, 39 more file-sharing websites were reported to be targeted in The Netherlands.

Despite of the fact that the event was quite significant, no targeted website could be named at the moment, because BREIN and the MPAA refused to reveal their domain names in fear of boosting their profile in case of their return. This made it simply impossible to estimate the scope of their actions.

However, it appeared that one of the targeted websites is DarksideRG, a relatively small community, which made its name several years ago as being the “home” for aXXo. To the older BitTorrent users, the name aXXo is associated with one of the best DVDrip releasers. Within 4 years, from 2005 to 2009, the name aXXo was attached to hundreds of .torrent files linking to pirated films. In the meantime, the release notes of the movies always contained a link back to his “home” community – DarksideRG. As the time passed, the aXXo brand has been achieving cult status, becoming synonymous with high quality. As a result, he has grabbed the increased attention of scammers, as well as the mainstream press, including documentary makers.

One of the staffers at DarksideRG confirmed that the site has been closed down, although it was not so dramatic – in fact, the website’s operators were kindly asked by their hosting company to relocate due to complaints made by the MPAA and BREIN.

The hosting company of the community, Leaseweb, had to ask its operators to leave, as BREIN has previously won a case in the country against a BitTorrent site hosting service. The community was notified in advance and had enough time to backup its files. So, currently the forum has been temporarily replaced for the period of moving servers. Despite the setback, the site isn’t going to keep its forums offline for longer than a week – the time it needs to find a new home.

greenshadow avatarDo they not know that with the vastness of the internet, people will just move around and change names to throw them off. Morons, how about they turn on the real problem here.... Crap films that are released, re-released and remade over and over again.

COZ5 avatarIn a purported interview of a person claiming to be axxo, he describes himself as a single individual who has been ripping DVDs since he was a teenager.It has been rumored that the MPAA is waiting for axxo to reach the age of 18 to more effectively prosecute him than if he were a minor.

julio99 avatarYou don't follow aXXo much if you think he finished at Darkside. He's on a private tracker now which I won't identify. It shouldn't be too hard to find him and his work if you want to join said private tracker. Try Googling his name and see what you get
