While carrying out the usual file-sharing networks monitoring, Danish anti-piracy group have noticed a user with a Danish IP uploading an illegal copy of the movie “Black Balls” (“Sorte Kugler”) to the Pirate Bay site. The group (Antipiratgruppen) collected evidence and then asked a court to compel the Internet Service Provider of that man to disclose his name and address and so the court agreed.
Antipiratgruppen has tracked the user in his 20’s down and carried out a raid in his house in order to gather more evidence of his supposed offenses. The lawyer of anti-piracy group emphasized the importance of the raid. She said there was no doubt that the man was behind massive copyright infringement. The IT experts have seized his web server and several found hard drives, so they now need more time to examine it thoroughly, though they assume they all contain files protected by copyright. This case is a bright example of massive piracy which at first glance looked modest.
Although the assistant attorney of the group labeled the man “a big fish”, she also said that to her knowledge he had only breached the copyright law four or five times by uploading movies and music online, which can be proved by a quick look at his Pirate Bay account.
Antipiratgruppen has secured an injunction against the user so if he continued sharing files he could be punished. As far as the group is “nice people” they don’t intend to “sue him to hell”. However, they need to estimate the volume of traded files to calculate the compensation number. This man was the first person making the movie “Black Balls” available on the Internet, and anti-piracy group had acknowledged it as an aggravating factor justifying their action.
Antipiratgruppen is the same anti-piracy group which has recently closed down the EliteBits BitTorrent tracker and admitted that the raid on its operator was aimed at “traffickers”.
However, in last November, the Danish anti-piracy group had almost given up on attempting to get illicit file-sharers convicted after they’ve lost several cases in court, mainly because of the inability to get solid evidence as the Danish courts used to rule that only an IP-address is not sufficient to prove user’s guilt. That’s from where a new tactic comes – to label such people as that screener uploader and BitTorrent site operators as “big fish” and bring the case into public.

|Well done. One down, a few million to go, eh|
Anti-pirates lost â€œthe fightâ€ as soon as it began. â€œThe hearts and minds of the peopleâ€ is what this is about. Also if this was so important to them then why did it still take them 7 months to round this one up?
When will these people just give it up already?
Get behind new and innovative distribution models, develop new business models, which might include not putting virtual restrictions on when a movie is released in what country, and youâ€™d win people over. Or, you know, keep wasting resources on catching the dangerous â€œbig fishâ€
Apart from that what a crappy film to get caught uploading over
|and this is why i ALWAYS use proxy's or public internet access to visit ET or similiar types... if i upload content, i seed using a seedbox and register everything to invalid addresses... use temporary Debit(cashcards)Cards to pay, FORCE encryption in my clients and use proxy's.|
If all else fails, i NEVER keep copy's of copyrighted content on my workstations or servers and store them on external flash drives and lock them as soon as there full and store them some place safe unless there needed, then there only copied and deleted as soon as im done.
you cant be too safe with all the crap going on now... i reduce my chances to minimal when i can but if crap like this doesnt stop its only going to start a full-scale Cyber-war
