Beyond Cloudflare: Data centres for pirated copies – The hall of shame

In February, this blog showed the importance of Cloudflare for Internet piracy.
This analysis was based on the top 5,000 of the still existing copyright infringing pages of the Google Transparency Report. These include more than 2.9 billion reports on deletions from the Google search index; they account for 79% of all reported URLs.
The 1,355 domains that are parked with companies such as Team Internet, Sedo or GoDaddy have to be subtracted from the 5,000 domains. Although these domains still exist, they are currently not used for copyright infringements.

This leaves 3,645 domains. Of these 3,645 copyright-infringing sites, 41.9% run via Cloudflare. For their part, they are responsible for 44.7% of the copyright infringements reported to Google.
But where are the other 58.1% of the pages or 55.3% of the infringing files? This will be examined in more detail below. Beyond Cloudflare: Data centres for pirated copies – The hall of shame weiterlesen

Obviously, the FDP based their request on a study carried out by the Vaunet association from August 2018. The association’s study examined the usage behaviour of consumers and tried to quantify the economic damage. According to the study, this amounted to € 700 million for Germany alone.

However, the provider’s view is missing in the analysis. Illegal services are not isolated. They require many intermediaries to function. These intermediaries play an important, if not decisive, role in solving the problem. A key role is played in particular by data centres from which illegal IPTV streams are „sent“ into the world wide web. France – La Grande Nation when it comes to illegal IPTV weiterlesen
