BREIN Explains Why It's Not going After 'Casual' Pirates - TorrentFreak
Dutch anti-piracy group BREIN is continuing to gather information on BitTorrent pirates. This information will be used to go after frequent seeders of pirated material. According to BREIN director Tim Kuik, individual downloaders will stay out of range for now because not all rightsholders support this approach. Kuik himself also believes that going after the suppliers is the better strategy.
When it comes to civil anti-piracy enforcement, BREIN is without a doubt one of the best-known players in the industry.
Backed by Hollywood and other content industries, the group has been active for more than two decades in the Netherlands.
Aside from shutting down sites and going after sellers of pirate streaming boxes, BREIN is also planning to go after BitTorrent users. By using in-house software that automatically gathers IP-addresses of seeders, hundreds if not thousands of copyright infringers can be easily pinpointed.
At first sight, this practice is very similar to the “copyright trolling” efforts that are common around the world. However, the Dutch anti-piracy group is taking a more reserved approach.
Instead of going after the IP-addresses of anyone who’s connected to a torrent swarm, BREIN is mostly interested in structural seeders who upload content for a longer period of time. In other words, the group wants to target those who frequently offer pirated content.

Bandersnatch is a Pirate Hit Without Interactivity, But They're Missing Out - TorrentFreak
Everyone seems to be talking about Bandersnatch, the supposedly groundbreaking new installment of the Black Mirror series. One of the big questions is whether the format poses a big challenge for pirates to replicate. With a torrent of the straight play-through already doing 'well' on torrent sites, the next big question is whether a truly interactive version will appear.
Warning: This may contain spoilers.
As a huge Black Mirror fan, I was excited – extremely excited – to learn that Netflix would be presenting the latest installment of the series at the end of December.
Right on cue, Bandersnatch hit the streaming service and within minutes I’d left the office for the comfort of the living room. Firing it up on my four-year-old LG smart TV I was immediately frustrated. According to the video that began to play, my TV is too old and outdated to play the promised interactive feast.
