French Police Shutdown Usenet Service and Arrested Operator

French police raided and shutdown the 5,000-user Usenet service “Newsoo”, and all its data is currently in the hands of authorities, while the operator of the site was arrested. The move was initiated by a long-standing complaint by the anti-piracy outfit SACEM.

It has long been a common thing that torrent sites usually appear in the copyright news headlines. Nevertheless, there is also a much older method of file-sharing, which is still alive but does not attract much of attention, though it also facilitates piracy: Usenet. This network represents newsgroups connected into a server-based sharing system, which normally requires a subscription to access. Its members download files directly from servers operated by their Usenet provider, so in this case no P2P is involved. As a result, downloads are very secure, protected from snooping and fast.

Over the past decade, Usenet providers have largely avoided prosecution. However, one service in France was targeted by a police following a complaint filed 2 years ago. The anti-piracy group SACEM demanded to shutdown the largest independent Usenet provider in the country, Newsoo. Its operator announced that he was just released from custody after a search and seizure of Newsoo servers, and took a decision to shutdown the service immediately and permanently.

Newsoo was a definitely unique service. Its operator was very public about his passion for the independent service built up over the years by hand and supported by the enthusiast. But like all Usenet providers, Newsoo had troubles with pirated content uploaded to its servers. As a result, in a relatively calm raid, the site operator was arrested and his service dismantled. The service owner will appear in court in summer.
