tv-links.co.uk shut down, operator arrested

Major pirate website shut down

Katie Allen
Friday October 19, 2007

One of the world's most-used pirate film websites has been closed after providing links to illegal versions of major Hollywood hits and TV shows.

The first closure of a major UK-based pirate site was also accompanied by raids and an arrest, the anti-piracy group Federation Against Copyright Theft (Fact) said today.

A 26-year-old man from Cheltenham was arrested on Thursday in connection with offences relating to the facilitation of copyright infringement on the internet, Fact said.

The arrest and the closure of the site - www.tv-links.co.uk - came during an operation by officers from Gloucestershire County Council trading standards in conjunction with investigators from Fact and Gloucestershire Police.

Fact claims that tv-links.co.uk was providing links to illegal film content that had been camcorder recorded from cinemas and then uploaded to the internet. The site also provided links to TV shows that were being illegally distributed.

Visitors to the site could get access to major feature films, sometimes within days of their initial cinema release. Recent links took users to illegal versions of the Disney/Pixar animation sensation Ratatouille as well as to most of this summer's blockbusters.

"Sites such as TV Links contribute to and profit from copyright infringement by identifying, posting, organising, and indexing links to infringing content found on the internet that users can then view on demand by visiting these illegal sites," said a spokesman for Fact.

The group's director general Kieron Sharp said TV Links was the first major target in a campaign to crackdown on web piracy.

"The theft and distribution of films harms the livelihoods of those working in the UK film industry and in ancillary industries, as well as damaging the economy," he said.

Roger Marles, from Trading Standards said sites such as TV Links allowed people to break UK copyright law.

"The 'users' are potentially evading licence fees, subscription fees to digital services or the cost of purchase or admittance to cinemas to view the films," he added.

The British Video Association estimates that at least £459m was lost to the video, film and TV industries due to piracy in 2006.
I do not know about you guys, but TV Links was one of my favorite sites. This sucks balls. ):<

This seems like a TPB sort of issue... they did not actually host the content; they just indexed it and provided links. The laws in Britain are probably not as forgiving as those in Sweden in this matter, though.

That's bollocks. Instead of bothering to actually deal with the sites hosting the material they take a shortcut and just get rid of tv-links just to make a bit more bothersome for the average joe to find his favorite tv-show on the net.

More info on this:

Quote:
More emails from TV-Links mods. Apparently, the raided servers were hosted in the Netherlands, which means this is a multi national operation.

“I would love to get one thing (works around “fact” grrr) straight:
We or better Sin wasn’t that stupid to host the main site in the UK, it
was a co.uk domain but the servers were in the Netherlands.


All the articles I have read so far went had comments about how this

couldn’t have happened if the site would have been in sweden and what not.


But that’s were the internet law needs some clarification. What does
matter? The Domain? The country where the server is in? Where the site
owner lives?


So, maybe you could get a note out that only our forum (which for some
reason is still active) wasn’t taken down but the servers in the
Netherlands are gone. So, this has to be a bit larger than only the UK
police marching alone versus us.”


Also:


“In the guardian article, it says the we would our visitors download stuff.
That’s not really true. Sure, with the proper knowledge, you can
download everything that your browser displays.


BUT: We did everything we could to make it as hard as possible for the
users to actually download and save the file. No direct download links
or anything. No posts on the forums allowed to the pages on the hosts
where you CAN download them.


OK, the stage 6 player makes it fairly easy but even there we tried
maksed the actual ID from the video. (And even there where the player
has its own download folder and all… most people still couldn’t figure
that out)


So, I think we did a fairly good job to protect the files from
downloading. At least way better than the hosts themselves.”

Again, this site was raided not for hosting content but simply for linking to it.

The domain was .co.uk, but the site was hosted in the Netherlands. This was obviously an international operation.

What is the law here? Why are Google and YouTube not getting raided for hosting the terabytes of these videos?

This is just like TPB's raid a couple of years ago, and I hope that the backlash against it will be the same.

Huge pirate music site shut down

Just heard this now on a local radio station, brief report on the news headlines. You don't expect to hear stuff about sites in the radio news.
