Gone here too
Looks like our UK legal team moved quickly.
Be sure to point these sites out when you see them. I'm always happy to give our attack dogs something to do.
GOOD STUFF! Well done to all concerned, there's too many of these "scumbags" out there.
That's so awesome, shutdown at the DNS provider level. The sword is the only thing that sleazy webmasters respect. Hit hard and hit fast, it works!
I think he moved ISPs.
Wow that's arrogant. I guess some people don't understand unless they get a visit from the police?
Yeah looks like - he had previously been hosted by euroconnex.net (we did a reverse ip lookup on his old ip, 126.96.36.199). I think they shut down his site after the guy didn't respond to their requests about claims emailed to their abuse address.
looks like now his IP is 188.8.131.52, and whois traces it back to schlund.com (same company that is the registrant it seems)
... however the site doesn't seem to be selling any pirated games (yet). I guess either his new host didn't want that business either, or he hasn't got sales pages working...
UK guys, hunt him down ! No mercy !
He's back! and selling games again. that mystery case files game doesnt look legit does it? Â£1.99?
and fairies. isnt that a bigfish game now?
also intresting to find this:
a legit site?
Surely he can be stopped by pointing this out to paypal? Or does paypal not give a damn?
I'd be tempted in part, to automate a paypal purchase/chargeback and just leave it overnight buying and charging back until paypal closed his account if they werent up for doing it themselves.
Or just going and throwing a bag of nasty through his door (there are always ways of tracking people).
he's not selling my games, can anyone with their games on there verify officially that he has no agreement to sell them?
Ebay don't allow anymore any sell of virtual obejcts :
you seem to be confusing the 'virtual' with the 'real' mate
Big Kahuna Reef, Big Kahuna Reef 2 and Big Kahuna Words are all selling for 0.99
I guess it will take them some time to make it real
Wow. Just read through this thread, and this is the first time I've been glad that all the portals rejected Fashion Cents. It doesn't show up on that site. Whew!
What Ebay needs is a nice big class action lawsuit to wake them up since they don't seem to care given they make money from helping out thieves. Story about how EBay is THE largest source of stolen goods.
Totally agree. It is easier for EBAY to let the thieves list the item so the can charge them listing fee and if no one notices and item actually get sold they will take their cut again. They really don't care if the goods are stolen or not as long they listed the rules in order to protect themselves. What is the difference between this and Napster ? Napster also warned users that sharing copyrighted material is not allowed and they removed all content they got warned about. They still shut them down. I guess they were not big enough...
yup, no argument here. I find the same thing with ISPs hosting prominent warez sites, or the advertisers who sell ads on the warez and torrent sites, they simply don't give a damn because they make cash from it. I think iyt complaining emails came from email@example.com, things might be different, they just assume small companies can't do anything about it.
I have found that it's fairly prompt to get files taken down from the hosting sites, such as rapidshare, megaupload etc. I often spend an idle 10 minutes reporting a few hundred copyrighted files on those sites. Even if it makes just 1% of the people uploading this stuff exasperated about it, I think it's worth it. If more of us did that, it would help
I recently read a thread containing a pirate copy of a famous triple A game, interspersed with comments about how cool the game was, and where to go to sign a petition to get a sequel made. These idiots don't realise that by pirating the game, they are absolutely assuring that the developer won't see a penny from them, and thus are hardly likely to make sequels. doh!
