HBO Targeted Game of Thrones Pirates

HBO Targeted Game of Thrones Pirates

The movie studio is trying to curb Game of Thrones piracy by sending out copyright infringement notices to alleged pirates and encouraging them to get a legitimate HBO subscription instead of downloading videos from torrent sites. Moreover, HBO is requesting torrent portals to remove Game of Thrones torrents at a massive scale.

After the new season of Game of Thrones aired on HBO, the episodes quickly appeared online both through official and illegal channels. As before, the interest on various pirate websites is massive again, and HBO is actively trying to contain the fallout behind the scenes.

Since the start of the season 6, HBO has sent thousands of warnings to Internet service providers, urging them to tackle alleged pirates. The company submitted the IP-addresses of BitTorrent users caught sharing recent episodes of Game of Thrones and asked the broadband providers to alert their subscribers to prevent further piracy.

Well, these notices are common across the world, but HBO now also encourages Internet service providers to offer subscribers legal alternatives – for example, adding HBO to the subscriber’s television package to legally watch and stream HBO programming on many devices.

In fact, Internet service providers don’t have to forward the emails sent as a DMCA notification. However, many of them do. At the same time, the copyright holder doesn’t know the identity of the alleged pirates, so the subscribers have nothing to fear.

Apart from targeting alleged pirates, HBO also targets torrent portals. In an attempt to deter people from pirating Game of Thrones, HBO has been sending takedown requests to torrent sites. Some trackers ignored them, but the major ones have removed links to hundreds of torrents. It should be admitted that the most popular torrents were removed in mere minutes after appearing online, which is much quicker than usual. Apparently, HBO’s anti-piracy partners were monitoring the situation on a massive scale.

So far, HBO has been doing all its best to curb the unauthorized distribution of Game of Thrones episodes, but it is unclear whether all these measures will be enough to really deter pirates from finding copies on other websites, as they are still readily available online.

Embolism avatarFantasy show no real plot watched one time only and seemed to have a wee (dwarf) fella and some tall blonde party together the rest seemed less than heterosexual and by that it was rather Gay to put it mildly,without doubt worse than any Sorbo/ hercules trash,I think the real script writer was Basil Brush. (boom,boom)As for the N.W.O`s agenda it must be considered that the global control of Cyberspace a whitepaper by the NSA/CIA around 2000 proposed the unilateral partnership of world governments in taking the reins,in 2004 i wrote when on Sourceforge forums that this would come about in reference to witch hunts and the development of one application that could maintain the security of the client whilst eliminating things like external browsers,blocklists so that they could maintain security and various other plug ins for encoding etc its now called VUze,why did I group test every torrent application decompiling finding flaws and weaknesses in their security and design,simples because like Timbl I believe the WWW and Internet should not be controlled by corporate fascists or any of the dupes in the so called NSA partnership countries,Britain,Germany,etc,the easy answer would be when the feds get too heavy the redesign of the vuze core and an I2p torrent board plug in by <PARG> it would then be possible for low latency anonymous transport which is the safer option to either public or tor downloading since they have a firefox/bittorent patch developed for endpoint resolution (tor)So public and tor will compromise you,so you must always adapt. (:^D)

Juliustmouse avatar"I heard it was crap, so it must be crap"
"I watched one episode and it seemed to have no plot"
You guys are great at researching a topic.
As far as the millions of people pirating the episodes, that's what internet is for. It is to connect people from all over the globe to share data. If you can connect to the world wide web, you should have unlimited access to everything on it.

YngBlondboy avatarI'd rather pay for a VPN then pay for HBO.. I don't even watch TV... I just DL what shows that interest me and watch them.. Which at a later point I can then binge watch a whole season of a show that I liked enough to keep on one of my HDs...

DJtroy avatarhmm opinions and discussions require medication from big pharma? stfu is either 5 with a taste for the "kool-aid" or he is about as mentally inline with the machine. I rather enjoy GoT in bits and pieces, its just another bit fo modern entertainment aimed at pleasing as wide a demographic as possible, it functions a great deal as a social catalyst, the water cooler vapid topic of the day. Overall i dislike it for jumping around too much to make sub par material more intriguing and help suspend disbleief by susbtituting wth is going on. IT is clearly excessive as any show with nudity and debauchery, the dark sides of human nature. Frankly ive always hated the intro and epecially the main musical score, it is a good period instrument piece, just not my flavor.

4GET avatarwhat does HBO stand for im guessing home box office..uhhm i dont own my home i dont have a box to stream this channel and i dont have a office so thats why i come here GOT 10 STAR WARS 7

EFFU2 avatarSTFU needs to STFU - GOT can be understood and appreciated as a result of watching. Forming an opinion based on one or two episodes, most disenters here claim to have watched 1 before forming an opinion, is hardly grounds for solid reasoning so why take those morons serious they are just flaming. The most logical explanation is that most GOT haters are children still watching cartoons and anime...As far as HBO goes, i invested in a VPN as well I watch what I want when i want - you dont run me

brianic2012 avatarGame of Thrones is not for everyone ....you need a little bit of intelligence to follows the storyline ...you watched one episode ,Really!!

Lot's of stupid comments here..the article is about HBO going after Pirates ...that could mean any show ...and not just HBO ...way off topic ...

Paying for TV sucks ...and i will never pay for a VPN or Seedbox Either .

Faceless42001 avatarTrue, GOT isn't for anime kids or low attention span kids.

No avatarWhen are HBO and the likes going to learn to set up their own Torrent sites for these kind of series - they could even request a small donation - which could supply people with a viable alternative.

...My guess is, not at all

swayzesghost avatarwait i thought the alleged crime was in the uploading part of the torrent since you can just go buy the rights to something if you are accused of stealing it and say you had it all along. I've seen an HBO president say it's ok to share your HBO GO password because they are in the business of creating addicts, so I don't know why they feel they need to put effort into stopping piracy. Seems like enough other people are already doing that.

BTW is pirating via torrents in trouble at all? I keep seeing horrifying news stories from around the world, and apparently torrent sites have rules against swearing now, even sites with swearing in their name... and IDK I jsut feel like rules against swearing are part of a package that makes something mainstream or society friendly, and society tends to not stand for people breaking the rules. HBO actually encourages their shows to swear.

gill3002 avatarNo matter what is HBO doing to stop pirating Game of Thrones.

It will be the most pirated TV series of 2016.
