France’s Largest Pirate Website Shut Down

France’s Largest Pirate Website Shut Down

The French police have shut down the largest pirate portal in the country, Zone-Telechargement. Besides, the popular download site DL-Protect is also offline. Both download portals accounted for millions of regular visitors and have been a prime target of local rights owners for many years now.


Zone-Telechargement (which means “download” in French), founded in 2011, was ranked the 11th most-visited site in France, offering direct downloads of pirated entertaining content, including movies, TV series, games, and music. The site’s popularity soared after the shutdown of MegaUpload in early 2012. Now the site is inaccessible, while the French Gendarmerie took credit for the event on Twitter, notifying the public that an investigation had concluded that the site caused copyright owners 75 mln euros in losses.

Apparently, Zone-Telechargement wasn’t the only target this time: DL-Protect, another large direct-download website which ranked 19th most popular website in the country also went down. The police didn’t mention it in their statement, but local reports claim that it was also targeted by the police, with French music industry group SACEM and the movie group ALPA also playing a role in the takedown. It was also suggested that both targeted sites were operated by the same people and have generated 10 mln euros in revenue.

This makes it quite clear that the France’s police cybercrime division and SACEM have online piracy high on their agenda. Besides, Andorran police reportedly assisted in the enforcement action, where 7 people were apprehended, and 2 still remain in custody, one in Andorra and one in France. According to local reports, real estate, bank accounts and several cars were seized during the enforcement actions in France and Andorra. The rumors are that the authorities of the two countries also discovered various Bitcoin wallets, which they hope to get their hands on.

No avatar"concluded that the site caused copyright owners 75 mln euros in losses".. That's assuming people would pay for it anyway. What idiot lawyer didn't ask for 200 mln euros! lol
