Operator of Torrent Proxies Arrested

British police have arrested the alleged operator of Immunicity and some torrent website proxies. The young man was first questioned at the police station, and then released on bail. The UK Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit took offline the proxy service Immunicity, along with a number of reverse proxies offering access to blocked portals like TPB and KickassTorrents.

At first it looked like the domain seizures were the result of a police request sent to the domain registrar, which also happened earlier with other infringing domains. Nevertheless, in this case the situation turned out to be different. City of London Police announced that they actually arrested the alleged owner of the domain names. An individual, 20 years old, was interviewed at the police station. As a result, he agreed to voluntarily transfer the domains to the authorities.

Industry observers point out that it’s not the first arrest since the start of “Operation Creative” in 2013 – the first involved the alleged admin of sports streaming service named BoxingGuru. As usual, the UK police were assisted by Hollywood outfit FACT. The authorities say that the arrest in question was a prime example of a successful partnership between the copyright industry and the police.

Although the law enforcement referred to the arrest as a major success, none of those domains operated by the man were offering a file-sharing or unauthorized streaming service. They were merely proxies which allowed people to access TPB and other websites blocked per court order by some British ISPs. Many Internet service providers still routinely offer access to the very same websites on a daily basis.

In the meantime, FACT argues that those proxy websites and services are illegal, just like the banned portals themselves. Of course, after torrent trackers were shut down in the United Kingdom, Internet users have sought ways to continue to access them via bypassing the block set by the Internet service providers. Proxy servers are one of the methods to do so. FACT claimed that the “Operation Creative” is a major step in tackling companies providing such access.

However, it is unclear if this argument satisfies the court, if the case ever goes there. It is clear that unlike the blocked pirate websites, the proxies aren’t run for profit, but usually as a hobby.

No avatarThe UK Government recently announced that it would no longer be prosecuting downloaders of copyrighted material only issuing warnings, four of them, which were meant to educate. Which makes me wonder whether anyone has told the police .... ??

sn3h1t87 avatarGoogle has their own DNS Google has their own Google Translate, which can be used to bypass stupid censorship restrictions.

Why arn't they taken offline? what's the difference.. after all you can use google to search for proxy servers or anything related to networking

in the same light ... since you can use their search engine to find ways of getting around this censorship why not take down google lol?

It's theft, taking their domain and hosting away after you've paid for it.. and getting nothing back of the cost, that's like a kid at school taking you're lunch money away.

it was a link to a .pac file that you loaded into you're browser.
the fact is, by it's self it's not even enabled until you choose to browse to a website that was blocked.

So you could of added that .pac link for 6 months and never browsed a single website, so how is that fraud, copyright? or infrigement.

i bought a hammer, does this mean the police can arrest me because i could use it to smack someone over the head with??? i'm sooo angry!
