BREIN has recently won ex-parte injunctions against the members of the local torrent release group named 2Lions-Team. Five members must pay damages totaling nearly $75,000. Besides, the group was required to remove thousands of torrents shared on the largest trackers of the world, including us.
BREIN was seen actively targeting online release groups publishing their works on popular torrent websites. Now it celebrates another victory after obtaining ex-parte injunctions against the 2Lions-Team members. All of them are prohibited from infringing any copyrights of BREIN members or face a daily fine of $2,250. In addition, the anti-piracy group reached out of court settlements of $75,000 in total with 5 members of the release group.
2Lions-Team is known for uploading thousands of files to the world largest torrent trackers, including The Revenant, Making a Murderer, The Walking Dead and local titles, some of which were downloaded nearly 500,000 times. The group members were forced to pull most torrents offline. The own website of 2Lions-Team is no longer functioning either, featuring messages from BREIN instead.
However, the recent BREIN pursuits show that the agency is not interested in bankrupting the uploaders. Talking about the level of the settlements in 2Lions-Team’s case, the anti-piracy group pointed out that it took the financial capabilities of the release group into account. Still, in the past months BREIN has been pursuing uploaders more aggressively. Besides, a few days ago, BREIN was granted permission to monitor IP-addresses of torrent users, which means that the group may also target individual file-sharers.

|BREIN again. And as we make our brands better we just hurry into the target area.|
By now most uploaders should know who they are cause they know who we are.
The better you are the faster they come...
