Warez Operator Sentenced to 1 Year in Jail

Wawa-Mania, a warez website that accounted for 2 million members and was included to the RIAA's latest "rogue" list, will have to close down after its operator was sentenced in absentia to 1 year in jail. Dimitri Mader from France, known online as Zac, is currently domiciled in Asia and is getting ready to go back to France. In his home country, he will face a $30 million civil suit launched by the representatives of the entertainment industry.


Wawa-Mania was known as a popular ‘warez’ forum that specialized in a broad range of unauthorized content, founded 9 years ago by Dimitri Mader. This time was enough for the service to grow to over 2 million registered members. Of course, the copyright owners didn’t like the state of things, and 6 years ago the site owner was detained after the Association Against Audiovisual Piracy (ALPA) identified over 3,600 movies distributed via the website without permission. By the way, for some reason, Zac received an unusual level of support from sympathizers, who scaled ALPA‘s headquarters and placed banners in his support.

It’s been 5 years, and it was finally announced that the 26-year-old site operator was sentenced to a year in jail and fined 20,000 euros. Dimitri Mader was sentenced in absentia, as he had fled to the Philippines in advance. In addition, the court ruling prescribed to shut down Wawa-Mania, but the “warez” site is still fully operational via its Ecuadorian TLD and the same Moldovan host that was previously used by The Pirate Bay.

However, this is not the end of the story for Wawa-Mania operator: the world’s largest movie companies are now seeking damages up to $30 million. This new hearing will take place in a few weeks, and now Mader is reportedly considering a return to France to face proceedings.
