MPAA shuts down web version of Popcorn Time but site moves to new domain The newly released web version of Popcorn Time has already been taken down, but the site has quickly found a new domain.
Browser Popcorn was taken down by the MPAA, and its 15-year-old owner Milan Kragujevic posted a message to the old domain: "Browser Popcorn has been taken down by the E.V.I.L. money-grabbing s**tlords of America, The Motion Picture Association of Murica [sic]."

The site has now moved to browserpopcorn.gq after the MPAA made sure his original web host took the site down. "Basically, MPAA sent me a [cease and desist] letter and contacted my hosting provider and domain registrar and ordered them to take down the infringing content," Kragujeviche added. "I live in a country where copyright law is almost nonexistent, and simply I don't care. I will keep moving the website, changing domains and providers."

DO NOT TOUCH IT - I have never seen so much spam and pop ups since merely looking at the site - NEVER AGAIN

Using a basic popup blocker is all you need. Adblock also works.

No spam/pop ups for me....

PopcornTime is without any nobility or integrity.

Coincidentally this little fruitcup punk biatch "Milan Kragujevic" is an Eastern European that has little to no regard for SOME IP respect.

Terrible website and continuing on with a terrible and illicit program as is PopcornTime.

No forgiveness for anything this kid gets as punishment.

Pardon..? You apparently missed the whole "my country has almost no copyright laws" bit.

My problem with Popcorn Time is that it uses bit torrent which forces you to share what you're downloading which can get you in legal trouble.
