MPAA and BREIN Shut Down More Than 50 Torrent Sites


Earlier this week, Dutch anti-piracy organization BREIN and MPAA announced that they has taken out 12 torrent websites in the U.S. and at least 39 sites abroad by filing copyright violation complaints with the sites' hosting providers.

The organizations managed to locate the torrent web sites with the help internet hosting providers. Earlier this month, BRAIN had also shut down torrent 39 websites in the Netherlands. These sites published links to streaming movies, BREIN said.

According to the TorrentFreak web site, BREIN "has disabled more than 1,000 torrent sites in The Netherlands, and they are now helping the MPAA towards doing the same in the U.S."

BREIN also conducts these anti-piracy "stings" in 11 other countries, including Germany, France, Britain and Canada. Its director, Tim Kuik, said in the statement, "There will be new sites, but we take them down fast so they cannot grow."
