BREIN gets another victory Following last week's victory in court over the web host LeaseWeb, BREIN has scored another "win" against the file-sharing community, this time against the web host EuroAccess.
EuroAccess was the host for Torrents.to and a court has ruled that the company will have to disconnect the site and provide the administrator details to BREIN. The LeaseWeb decision was exactly the same.

"In a ruling in summary proceedings, the District Court of Den Bosch (the Netherlands) ordered hosting provider Euroaccess to shut down the illegal website “Torrent.to” and to surrender the personal data of site administrator and to pay all the lawyers’ fees incurred by the BREIN foundation, which is an organisation that fights piracy,"
a BREIN press statement says.

"Hosting providers have to live up to their responsibilities,"
added Tim Kuik, BREIN’s Managing Director. "Euroaccess shelters numerous illegal sites and servers and it refused to respond to notifications from various parties, including BREIN. That had to change."

Blah, blah blah! More sites will pop up and take it's place. This rulling means nothing.

Sure it does. I agree it won't stop other p2p sites from popping up However, it will make it easier for BRIEN to do the very same thing to other web hosting sites.

Also even though more will come up, it doesn't mean they will be able to provide the same quality of service.

Congratulations, BREIN. Now, please also take town download-provider.com, which is hosted by LeaseWeb as well. This is one of the largest fraudulent sites in business, pretending to provide downloads to illegal content.
