Hollywood Targeted Streaming Subreddit

Warner Bros has sent a fresh takedown notice to the BestOfStreamingVideo subreddit, a popular community where users shared links to pirated streams of movies and TV shows. However, the notice hasn't had any effect. In response, one of the moderators recommended Warner Bros. to focus its efforts on building a better legal movie platform instead.

Nowadays, streaming sites become increasingly popular among online pirates searching for the latest TV shows and blockbusters. There are dedicated communities where people share links to high-quality copies of recent releases, and Reddit is one of these places, with its “subreddits” dedicated to streaming from unauthorized sources.

Of course, the entertainment industry is not happy with this type of sharing, and Warner Bros eventually took action against BestOfStreamingVideo, a popular subreddit with more than 45,000 readers interested in free content. The studio filed a DMCA takedown notice accusing the subreddit of infringing Interstellar movie. A link to a pirated copy was added a couple days ago, and the copyright owner wants it to be removed.

The most interesting fact is that the DMCA notice was not sent to Reddit, but Google, who was asked to remove the page from its search results. However, Google decided not to comply with the demand, so the page is still present in its search results. Perhaps, Google refused because the request is too broad, because it doesn’t list the main URL of the Reddit submission. Or Google could decide that Reddit is better off handling takedown requests for their own platform.

Anyway, the users and operators of BestOfStreamingVideo are happy with the result. The moderator explained that they simply offer a platform for users to share links and do not don’t control them, because Reddit is a platform for free speech. He also suggested that Warner Bros should be better off focusing its efforts on building an alternative legitimate streaming platform with fair prices.

It is unknown whether the Hollywood studio has also asked Reddit itself to take down the subreddit. All we can see is that the subreddit remains online, as the link to the pirated copy of Interstellar is still there. By the way, this was not the first time that this particular subreddit has been targeted – for example, two years ago, another movie studio, LionsGate, sent a similar takedown request. Its attempts remained fruitless as well.

That is not allowed it must be destroyed or coopted by trolls and such. How can the foolish peeps/sheeple expect free speech and expression when on the other hand they force powers that be to remove those silly antiquated ideas.
LOL next the fools will think that they have an expectation of privacy.
ROFL All the while they on a regular basis encourage to remove the same from others. Because they dont agree with or have decided that they disaprove of them or their beliefs.
Can't have it both ways.
