CloudFlare Was Ordered to Identify Pirate Website Operators

CloudFlare Was Ordered to Identify Pirate Website Operators

A New York federal court has ordered CloudFlare to identify the operators of Libgen and Bookfi pirate sites, specifying that its help is required to identify the alleged offenders.

CloudFlare is known as one of the leading CDN and DDoS protection services and is currently used by many websites across the world, including lots of “pirate” portals that rely on CloudFlare to keep server loads down. Besides, the service has the added benefit that it can “obfuscate” the hosting providers of such websites, thus providing an extra layer of anonymity.

Back in 2015, academic book publisher Elsevier filed a complaint against “pirate” sites Sci-Hub, Libgen and Bookfi, but the identities of operators of the latter two still remain undisclosed. Since they used CloudFlare in the past, the plaintiff tried to obtain information through the “trusted notifier” program, but CloudFlare replied that it could not share information for sites no longer active on its network. In response, Elsevier took the matter to court to get a discovery subpoena in order to move the case forward and identify the defendants.

The court sided with the plaintiff, finding enough evidence to conclude that Libgen and Bookfi are engaging in copyright-infringing activities and ordering CloudFlare to hand over any and all available information able to identify these former customers.

At the same time, it is unclear to what degree CloudFlare can help, as neither Libgen nor Bookfi are currently using its services, so it doesn’t have to store their old IP-addresses and other identifiable information. Moreover, even if the site operators are identified, they may pay no attention to future US court orders, because they are likely living abroad. The court has already ordered to take down their domain names, but they obtained new ones and continue to serve illegal papers and books.
