Dutch Anti-Piracy Outfit Accused of Stealing And Hijacking

The case with wrongfully seized equipment of the hosting provider by Dutch pro-copyright group called BREIN continues. Now the owner of the servers has spoken out, claiming that the anti-piracy group killed his business by stealing $138,000 worth of his equipment, along with hijacking his email. Craig Salmond, director of a small South American hosting provider, is planning to pursue the matter with the police.

Two months ago, BREIN targeted one of the largest warez piracy topsites in the web. Service known as Swan was closed down by its hosting provider WorldStream, which somehow handed over the equipment to BREIN without any legal oversight.

Last week, Alejandra Transporte SA, owner of the servers, with the help of one of The Netherlands’ top law companies, got its servers back. By the way, unlike anti-piracy outfit, the provider did so through the legal system, applying to the Court of Haarlem, which decided in its favor.

Today Craig Salmond explains how the BREIN’s actions have effectively killed his business – he points out that his servers were stolen, along with the keys to his reputation. His company is actually a tiny ISP taking the privacy of its subscribers very seriously. The facilities of Alejandra Transporte SA are similar to those provided by PRQ hosting in Sweden. Meanwhile, the methods of accepting payments from the users are also innovative, as they allow to maintain their privacy. For example, along with common Western Union and PayPal transfers, the subscribers are also able to pay through a deposit at some poker site.

However, two months ago the Internet service provider went offline due to joint efforts of BREIN and WorldStream. The latter refused to tell Salmond anything, referring him back to the anti-piracy outfit.

Of course, it’s actually WorldStream’s fault, as it had a contract with the ISP and had to take care of and manage its property (equipment). This could hardly involve giving the servers away to the third parties.

Moreover, after the seizures Craig Salmond claimed that he could no longer access some of his mail accounts. It turned out that their passwords had been changed, and Salmond strongly believes this relates to BREIN. The law firm representing Salmond said that the activities of BREIN and WorldStream can’t be tolerated, as they are a theft of someone else’s property, causing enormous financial and reputation damage.

menahunie avatarThere is no doubt he will win; just how much money he will get from BREIN and all the copyright holders they claim to represent since BREIN is supposed to be acting in their behalf. In that case the copyright holders can and should be named as co-defendants in any case this guy files... I would also suggest if any other business that may have also been on these servers put out of business by the stealing of the servers by BREIN and that theft facilitated by the hosting provider WorldStream... I would settle and settle fast...
