Court Demands IsoHunt to Delete Infringing Torrents

Court Demands IsoHunt to Delete Infringing Torrents

The US court requires IsoHunt to stop facilitating copyright infringement. This the website does through torrent files which can be found when searching within the well-known BitTorrent engine. The suggested legal resolution demands isoHunt to filter the website based on keywords list. If you remember, last year the same sanction caused the fellow torrent tracker website MiniNova shutdown. That time a Dutch court forced Mininova to implement a similar sanction. But the operators of the website claimed it to be technically impossible, and refused to pre-approve or censor every single theoretically infringing torrent file. Instead, they restricted their operations by allowing uploading files only to approved users.


Now the legal battle is developing in California between IsoHunt and movie studios represented by Motion Pictures Association of America. The court suggested a permanent ruling to force IsoHunt to delete torrents matching the keywords contained in a banned list and keep the list actual. Originally, the proposal was made by the movie studios, and the court was ready to take it over and order the website to maintain this keyword filter.

Gary Fung, the owner of IsoHunt, echoes MiniNova’s words and doesn’t believe in feasibility of such filtering system either. He has already said earlier that this sanction doesn’t help to keep the balance between protecting copyright and honoring the fair use and freedom of speech, because the filter will also ban torrent files located in the public domain or those distributed with the approval of copyright owners.

However, the proposal of the Californian court isn’t a final decision yet. IsoHunt is definitely going to object to the suggestion. To convince the judge, Gary Fung prepared so called “light” version of the website which would address their concern on facilitating copyright infringement and may be used instead of filtering.

The light version of IsoHunt is not actually a light one – it’s nothing more than a feature turning the site into the usual search engine like Google. So it’s just a big search box and nothing else. The reason is that this variant doesn’t differ from other engines and thus can’t facilitate copyright infringement, unlike the previous version that allowed users to browse via different torrent categories.

Anyway, regardless of the court decision, IsoHunt will unlikely start filtering content. The most they would do is block access to US users – this perfectly complies with the court’s ruling.

IrishTalian avatarWow, I just tried to use IsoHunt a moment ago, and was thrown right into depression and anger! I'm so sick of the MPAA & RIAA! What they are trying to do is illegal! The most ridiculous thing about all this, is the government! They introduce new laws all the time, just so they can constantly benefit from them!

I use to be proud to be an American, but for the past few years I started to hate my country! This is not what all the people who have died intended. This is suppose to be a free country and the best country. But, it's really becoming freedom less! Soon, very soon, the people will have no rights and our country will provide us with absolutely nothing! Not that the US, does much for it's people these days anyway.

Our country, is just a big bank for other countries to take from. All the money we keep sending to other countries, should be being used for us! We are in need! This country gives nothing and takes everything now!
