isoHunt Appeals Court Ruling

Canada’s BitTorrent tracker isoHunt appeals the permanent injunction, saying that the keyword filtering the court demands is too broad and that’s why rights owners, such as the MPAA, have to provide isoHunt either with URLs or hashes so it could determine exactly which links are to be deleted from the website.


isoHunt decided to appeal the previous court decision which forced it to prevent American visitors from getting any copyrighted content on the website. Last month US District Court Judge in LA ruled a permanent injunction against isoHunt, ordering to cease providing access to any torrent files or similar ones that relate or lead to the copyrighted material, including hosting, indexing and linking to the content that belongs to the film studios actually bringing the lawsuit.

The details of injunction demanded BitTorrent tracker to filter search results of the terms that might relate to infringement, or to the universally understood names of copyrighted works and the names that are commonly associated with rights violation – “warez”, for example.

This point is now the reason for isoHunt’s lawyer Ira Rothken to challenge the ruling. The attorney says that it would be too broad to filter by terms. The examples mentioned in the appeal include “Alice in Wonderland”, “Wizard of Oz” and “Dracula”, all having public domain versions alongside with recent copyrighted works. Unfortunately, regardless of the MPAA’s will to protect only the more recent ones, demanded keyword filtering doesn’t allow for such exceptions. That is not right from the Rothken’s point of view, because the motion picture studios don’t monopolize the names of things, which means that the ruling violates the First Amendment.

The suggestion isoHunt is ready to offer the MPAA is to provide the website with URLs or hashes so that it could properly identify which search queries are to be deleted from the tracker. The website points out that it has already made a huge step to satisfy Judge and the MPAA by redirecting American visitors to a light version of the tracker three months ago. However, the Judge dismissed the isoHunt’s attempt, saying that the light version doesn’t differ much from the original one, being apparently unaware that it now only links to a third party trackers, which can hardly be illegal.

jenga122 avatarThanks for the article. All the best to Isohunt, any court case against any indexing site is just a ridiculous farce anyway. Hopefully justice isn't blind and ignorant.
