Torrent Tracker Taken Down by Faulty Indian DMCA Notices

Torrent Tracker Taken Down by Faulty Indian DMCA Notices

An Indian film production company Thirrupathi Brothers is overloading hosting companies with DMCA notices, asking them to take down some of the largest torrent trackers worldwide. The problem is that its takedown notices are not very accurate, but they have already led to a temporary downtime of a large public tracker.

BitTorrent networks are used by millions of people at any given point in time to share files. External torrent trackers often coordinate such file transfers. In fact, the trackers themselves don’t host any files nor do they have a searchable index, but the entertainment industry doesn’t care and asks trackers to block infringing hashes from their service. By the way, some of the trackers honor removal requests, including the popular “Trackerfix” tracker. But this didn’t prevent it from getting into trouble recently.

Thirrupathi Brothers was not happy with a torrent being shared on LimeTorrents and targeted a wide range of external trackers with a wave of takedown requests, including CloudFlare, OVH, Private Layer, Plus Server, Velia, Host Europe, Godaddy and NetSAAP. In result of the series of requests, Trackerfix suffered several hours of downtime, even though the tracker had already blocked the hash from their service. Moreover, the tracker operators point out that the DMCA notice itself is inaccurate and overbroad, as it requests the takedown of a number of 3rd-party torrent trackers for one infringing hash, out of the millions they track. Besides, the notice references a combination of Dutch and American regulations, even though some targeted companies are located outside of that jurisdiction.
