Popcorn Time Developers Settled with Dutch Anti-Piracy Group

BREIN, the well-known representative of copyright holders in the Netherlands, has tracked down a couple of local Popcorn Time developers. The individuals shared their works via GitHub and Reddit, but then were targeted by BREIN and forced to stop working on Popcorn Time, facing a €2,000 per day fine if they violate their settlement agreement.

Popcorn Time has long been a piracy icon and one of copyright holders’ main nemeses, but recently major movie studios finally booked a major victory when the Motion Picture Association of America sued key Popcorn Time developers in Canada. This lawsuit resulted in taking down the associated website, but the numerous efforts to revive the project continue.

The main problem is that Popcorn Time’s code is open source. In other words, anyone can help out or distribute forks of the popular application without any effort. This is why many developers around the world easily had their own improved version up and running. Even here, BREIN has just announced a win. According to the group, it has tracked down a couple of Dutch developers who helped to keep the app alive, and forced them to cease their activities.

BREIN explained that two individuals used GitHub to submit their code and Reddit to share news about their work. In order to avoid a costly court case, the developers had to sign a settlement with BREIN in which they agreed to stop their Popcorn Time development. If they fail to keep their promise, they will face a fine of €2,000 per day. Such mild warning could be issued to developers who are not the core development team of the .io fork.

Meanwhile, the court case against 3 Popcorn Time developers in Canada is still ongoing, and those guys face millions in damages.
