Motion Picture Association sues video download sites
Hollywood (CA) - The Motion Picture Association of America has filed a lawsuit against two sites that have reportedly been used to transfer illegally pirated movies. The MPAA brought the suit against Cinematube.net and Ssupload.com, seeking an injunction against them for what they claim is blatant copyright infringement.
Cinematube.net, for example, features films like Ratatouille and Good Luck Chuck on its home page, claiming tens of thousands of views for each title.
Cinematube’s servers are listed as being located in Malaysia, and the site receives a report 24,000 unique viewers per day. Ssupload is shown to be located in Arizona.
"We are putting illegal Web operators on notice that they are not above the law and will face serious consequences for their activities," said MPAA VP and the group’s head of anti-piracy John Malcolm.
