French movie studio was found to be seeding an unauthorized copy of its own latest blockbuster Jurassic World from its own servers. The movie has been riding high in the box office top 10, and of course saw high levels of piracy. It always happens to popular movies, you know.
Universal sent a DMCA takedown notice to Google a few days ago, where the studio demanded the search engine to block links to a number of websites allegedly hosting or linking to pirated copies of its movie Jurassic World. The problem is that the block request included a link to “http://127.0.0.1:4001/#/fr/”. As many users know, the IP address “127.0.0.1” is normally reserved to describe the “localhost” or your own machine, i.e. the computer on which a program or user is operating. In other words, the studio (or a company that collected data and prepared a notice) was the one who hosted a pirated copy of Jurassic World – i.e. seeding was carried out from within Universal’s own computer network.
One should also take into account that movie studios and publishers usually use automated software searching for unauthorized copyrighted works – in this case, Jurassic World. Apparently, this software found a file being linked to from outside Universal’s network on its own machines, which means that the movie studio was seeding pirated copies of its own content.
The industry experts point out that Universal is actually no stranger to weird takedown notices: for example, recently it also sent takedown requests to the search giant to remove the Internet Movie Database page listing its movie Fast & Furious 7 from Google’s index, even though it wasn’t hosting any infringing content.

|Universal will now be cautious with its automated software..|
|it's also a marketing solution if you ask me i've seen cam/ts versions of movies strongly seeded by thousands of servers of movie studios just to stay on top on popular pirate market....it's not a surprise these actions...or imdb bot/multiple accounts/votes/ratings|
|Hard to be truly surprised by anything these suits do. They probably only did it knowing how crap of movie they had just made.|
|Hire more IT guys dude LOL|
|HAHAHA!!... This is common!!. I see this all the time on set!. The crew itself would be torrenting of the studios wifi, and seeding back.. Quick scan of everyone on the same switch, and see the bandwidth!! ITS OBVIOUS!! Lol Think about it.. its not like there's Anons hacking studios servers to grab copies of movies to spread around the world!!. More than the majority of all leaks, whether in the film industry, music, art, journalism, publications!!,,.. any field where social growth is profitable,. will have leaks!!!. and they more than majority will be in house leaks!||
