Romania Seized Leading Pirate Website Domain

Romania Seized Leading Pirate Website Domain

The country with the fastest average Internet connection speeds in the region has intensified its anti-piracy efforts, with the government seizing the domain of one of the most popular streaming websites in the country for copyright infringement.


Hollywood continues its efforts to pressure countries in mainly Western Europe to act against online piracy. As a result, some countries passed anti-piracy legislation but largely it has been left to national courts and entertainment industry to decide how to deal with file-sharing. For example, the Romanian government has seized the domain of a popular streaming portal 990.ro, which made available almost any TV show on the planet and about 90% of the latest movies without the permission of the rights owners. Now its domain is under the control of the Ministry of Justice.

Although the site didn’t receive any notice of the seizure, this was expected: 4 years ago, Romania’s Audiovisual Council reported pirate movie and TV show websites (including 990.ro) to the local police, demanding action to shut them down. The list also included Vplay.ro, the largest site of its type at the time, and it was also seized by the Ministry of Justice. Many of other websites from that list have since shut down, moved to new domains or had old ones seized.

A similar crackdown was carried out a year ago with the assistance from the FBI: it resulted in 3 sites shutdown and arrest of several people. So far, no arrests connected with 990.ri seizure were announced, but more serious breaches of Romanian copyright law can be punishable by fines and jail sentences. It is also known that 990.ro carried a lot of paid advertising, so the chances are that tax evasion and money laundering offenses are being investigated, just like in the last year’s raids.

According to media reports, 990.ro was owned by the Romanian news and entertainment portal Romania Online, but the latter denied the allegations. Media reports also stated that 990.ro was one of many customers of the FASTUPLOAD.ro free service that allows to store, transfer and view files. The hosting service is known as the largest storage service in the country, operating under Romanian law. A direct IP address for the streaming site has ceased to function, and its operators haven’t announced its return so far.

GrimPirate avatarWherever the most money is being lost is where they go. That will never change and it sucks balls. They couldn't care less about crime or invest enough into it that would be a bigger loss, it never ends.

justmike1973 avatarOver here we have BREIN as the anti-pirat that has opened the hunt for uploaders. The problem in the Netherlands? All people who buy a machine that can store media have to pay an extra few Euro's. With that BREIN pays the artist and who ever their other wise lost money. But come on. Even the movie giants make use of the torrent sites just too see if they hit gold. Really bad cam versions just to make people think omg I want to see it on the big screen. Music artist that put torrents online (not the hole album but just some tease). I just dont get it. This hunting will only make torrents more wanted. They can try to stop it but everybody knows if you take one uploader down there will be 10 more to take the place. I think the solution would be working together and stop the hunting. Lets be honest the way torrents are going has his ups and downs. The only sympathy I have for hunting down uploaders is the ones who do not share for free but the ones who ask money to download and thats not why torrent sites are there. We share for free. And come on. Most torrents have already made enough profit before they get on the sites as really good torrents. And thats all I wanted to say. The only thing governments and the industries are doing is is making filesharing going underground. Lets all remember this sharing cant be stopped.
