BREIN Obtained Pirates’ Identities without Court Orders

BREIN Obtained Pirates’ Identities without Court Orders

The Dutch anti-piracy group announced that it had obtained the identities of operators of several pirate linking websites. It turned out that the details were disclosed by a UK-based hosting provider, which voluntarily complied with BREIN's requests.


The usual way to find out personal details of a pirate is via court order. This process involves presenting evidence and having a judge order a provider to hand over personal details of a customer. However, BREIN says it’s investigating 3 linking websites engaged in sharing popular movies and TV shows hosted on a cyberlocker without court involved.

The beginning of this process was quite straightforward, because the pirates were using servers belonging to a local hosting provider. This situation gave the anti-piracy outfit a nice start to its investigation thanks to case law established back in 2005, when a stamp dealer was wrongfully accused of fraud by an individual posting on a website. The dealer launched legal action, demanding the ISP to hand over personal details of the poster making the allegations. Eventually, the Dutch Supreme Court sided this the dealer, and thus outfits like BREIN received a welcome boost.

This is how BREIN found that the servers used by the pirate websites in our case were Dutch-based, with the operating company being obliged to comply with a disclosure request. The problem emerged when it turned out that the servers were actually operated by an overseas company. But it was immediately solved, because the UK-based hosting provider agreed to hand over the personal details of the pirate sites without a court order.
