MPAA Made Popcorn Time Fork Go Offline

The Motion Picture Association of America continues its fight against Popcorn Time, pursuing a group of developers who launched a "Community Edition" of the popular app. Although the new fork didn’t officially say goodbye, the developers have taken down their website and GitHub repository. Back in November, the MPAA managed to shut down the main Popcorn Time fork, which operated from the PopcornTime.io domain name. The Motion Picture Association of America had filed a lawsuit against the Canadian developers, thus warning other key developers that they may have the same fate.

At the same time, industry experts point out that while the actions of the Hollywood group had a profound impact, they didn’t stop other developers from continuing with their own Popcorn Time forks. For example, the popular Popcorn-time.se spin-off remained intact. Moreover, a new group of developers launched a Popcorn Time Community Edition (PTCE). First of all, they issued a fully operational fix for the .io fork, which was circulated on Reddit. Then they added their own fork and a dedicated website at Popcorntime.ml.

Many estranged Popcorn Time users welcomed Popcorntime.ml, and the site quickly gained a solid userbase. But not for long: a couple days ago, the website and GitHub repository went offline. According to some insider information, some people involved with the project are “getting bugged” by the movie group. Apparently, after facing the threats from the MPAA, the developers decided to take everything down and start all over again with a new strategy for the official site and GitHub repository in order to avoid such a problem in the future.

The PTCE team explained that they didn’t want anyone to get in trouble with the law. So, the developers are trying to figure out what they can do to avoid the problems. The team hopes to get the site back up again and will continue to improve the app behind the scenes. Meanwhile, the MPAA pressure can’t be very surprising for anyone, especially taking in the account the lawsuit against the developers of the popular .io fork. Besides, a couple of developers had to quit the PTCE last month after being pressured by Dutch anti-piracy outfit BREIN. Anyway, even if the PTCE doesn’t come back online, the chances are high that others will jump in to take its place.
