Dutch campaign maintains anti-p2p offensive

Dutch anti-p2p campaigners have forced another filesharing website offline, bringing the total number of p2p sites that they have closed down in the past 15 months to 131.

BREIN, a coalition of authors, artists and producers, persuaded the hosting provider for dsb-tracker.org to take the website down, after its operators had ignored BREIN's cease and desist notice. The operators' second site, dsb-scene.org has also been served with a takedown notice.

BREIN's action was backed by the IFPI, an international music industry body,

'Illegal P2P sites make structural and systematic use of the unauthorised availability of content files with music, film, games and software on the internet,' said the IFPI. 'BREIN demands that site operators to give themselves up and sign an undertaking to cease and desist from their illegal activities under forfeiture of a penalty.'
