Typically, anti-piracy organizations deal with large targets, and their actions are typically targeted at entire sites that distribute copyrighted files. Sometimes, however, they are satisfied with hurdles, and this is exactly what happened to BREIN, which fined the pirates of the files on The Pirate Bay and KickassTorrents.
The fight against piracy is carried out in many ways. Although the most common purpose of the various organizations representing the interests of copyright holders is the entire distribution of files, sometimes their purpose is to become real hurdles, but they also have implications for this business.
The Dutch anti-piracy group BREIN attacked one of the members of the 2Lions-Team, which posted files on the most popular torrent sites such as The Pirate Bay and KickassTorrents and sued him for a fine of € 7500. In the organization’s statement, it can be read that the defendant frequently casted films and series with inscriptions and was an active member of the pirate group, putting the company at great financial loss.
After identifying the remaining members of the group, he stopped doing business, hoping that the case would break up but he was not so lucky and would now have to answer for his actions.
