Bittorrentsite Demonoid.com offline after intimation Brein
Wednesday 27 June 2007, 13:51 - of the most popular bittorrentsites, Demonoid, have been since Tuesday morning offline. Cause is possibly an intimation of foundation Brein to the address of hostingprovider Leaseweb.
Of the foundation Brein won last week a short lawsuit of hosting provider Leaseweb concerning bittorrentsite Everlasting.nu. The foundation kondigde then already to its arrows to aim at a large international site. That proves be now Demonoid.
Brein has summoned Leaseweb to obtain offline Demonoid and the names and address data of the site owner to supply. Brein thinks that Demonoid are thus inaccessible because Leaseweb to the intimation want approach. On further bald homepage Demonoid themselves communicate however that a system problem forces us by everything from the backup repairing. Demonoid promise be further as soon as possible online.
Demonoid are with its 170,000 torrent-bestanden one of the most popular bittorrentsites in the world. From a sample of Brein, developed by TNO, becomes clear that on average 93.8 percent of the accessible files is comment as a resistance worker, thus Brein. This outcome gives clearly to that illegal offer there leading takes place on large international uitwisselsites such as Demonoid, thus Brein-directeur time Kuik.
Responsibility this type sites adopts, however, the responsibility to refuse pornographic material prohibited, but draws himself of it nothing if files make unmistakably violation on authors and adjoining rights, thus Kuik. According to Brein-directeur Leaseweb are considered as a safe port for this type sites. There an end to, thus Kuik must come.
According to Kuik Leaseweb for caused damage as the hosting provider responsible in the possession do not appear of reliable naw-gegevens of torrentsites are which offers copyright protected material.
Moreover Brein seems also unintentionally make publicity for bittorrentsites by noticing that almost 93 per cent of files the commented as a resistance worker were useful and that the none of the useful copyright protected files other content contained then title of content indicated. Bittorrent files seem be mostly more reliable than files of p2p-netwerken as Fasttrack and Edonkey, which frequently have a misleading name
