In early June, the US Copyright Group (USCG) requested information on ninety-seven bulletproof hosts (IP addresses and contact names and addresses), claiming they were hosting pirated content. The group also claimed that 2,000 trackers were being used to host pirated content, generating over a million seed files every month.
The day after the filing, the five largest record label groups in the US signed a deal with the US Copyright Group to assist in taking down pirate sites, safe in the knowledge that the ISPs could be prosecuted for assisting the pirate sites.
Today the US Copyright Group has expanded their "extensive takedown procedures" to free up so-called "domain guard" sites, which function as content filters. The domain name may have been purchased from the site's owner, but the Pirate Bay has an unexpected benefit: the payment to third-party registrars is done in Bitcoin.
One of the "recent changes to.org domain rules" regarding Pirate Bay affiliates is particularly interesting. "If the registration with the registrar is obtained by fraudulent means or by a third party who is not authorized by the registrant, the registrar shall transfer the domain name to the registrant." The law also makes clear that an example of a fraudulent means is "fraudulently obtaining control of the domain name by deception, collusion, or other improper means."
After receiving the complaint, the hosting company voluntarily transferred ninety-one domains to LMGdomain.com. Of those ninety-one domains, LMGdomain.com "had registered seventy-five of the domains in a fraudulent manner," according to the ruling. The court also pointed out that "[d]omain registrars can and should exercise their own independent judgment in the effort to combat.org domain name fraud." d2c66b5586
