During the past two weeks the Dutch anti-piracy organization BREIN forced 6 (small) torrent sites to stop their services. Brein is known for its intimidating techniques, and is successful in taking down sites, mostly set up by hobbyists.
Among BREIN’s newest victims are weblog.nl, movieget.nl, and torrents4you.com.
BREIN claims to have taken down 50% of all BitTorrent sites in the Netherlands.
Brein often threatens the site owners to admit they are infringing copyright and asks them to give BREIN all the information about their members or we will sue. These threatening and intimidating talk seems to work, although Brein has no legal power, they do have the money to sue.
