BREIN is a Dutch anti-piracy group that likes to file lawsuits against pirates and this time they were successful against Leaper Beheer BV. According to BREIN, Leaper aids in piracy by providing links to pirate TV streams and on-demand movies. The company claimed they were just providing a convenient service link to content that is already available anyway and since they weren't hosting the pirated content they shouldn't be held responsible for it. However, the CJEU didn't see it that way and told Leaper to shut down or get fined so much it hurts. I'm not sure whether Leaper has stopped yet, but I bet they have. Another one bites the dust.

Describing the people behind Leaper as “crooks” who previously sold media boxes with infringing addons (as previously determined to be illegal in the Filmspeler case), BREIN chief Tim Kuik says that a switch of strategy didn’t help them evade the law.

I avoid subscription to anything. They are all waste of time. After DJT was elected, TV has gone to shit at a whole new level. I actually cut the cord and all the news media from my life. I simply don't have time for BS on any level. I noticed that I have stopped going to movies or rent movies. I don't feel so negative or pessimistic anymore. TV/NEWs was largely responsible for the issues, so they were removed from my life. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't change the dynamic of the threats we face. These people doing piracy are doing it for a profit.

I can never understand why these anti-whatever groups always go after the people who have done such a nice job of cataloging the whatever so they can take action against it.

In this case, if you have a nice list of pirate tv, you can go get those taken down.
