Amazon Launched Another Music Service
Amazon Music Unlimited has just been launched to compete with Spotify and Apple Music, as part of Amazon’s push into music streaming. The service will initially only be available in the United States and compete with Spotify there, charging the same $9.99 monthly fee. At the same time, it must be noted that Amazon is trying to beat Spotify on price on certain target markets: for example, Amazon Prime customers can get $2 off their subscription fee.
Foreign Spies Hacked Australian Bureau of Meteorology
The federal government released a report saying that foreign powers hacked the Australian Bureau of Meteorology’s network and installed malicious software to steal sensitive documents.
Swedish Torrent Site Operator Appeals Court Decision
The 25-year-old owner of SwePiracy torrent tracker has largely avoided the goals of the entertainment industry prosecution in Sweden – the admin avoided demands for years in prison and millions in damages, and was instead handed hours of community service and told to pay under $200,000.

SwePiracy has grown into one of the most popular private torrent trackers in the country and consequently became a target for anti-piracy groups. More than 4 years ago, anti-piracy group Antipiratbyrån and police both in Sweden and in the Netherlands took coordinated action to take SwePiracy offline.

Now its operator showed up in court to answer charges relating to the illegal distribution of a sample 27 films, where the prosecution demanded years in prison and $3m in damages. During the trial, SwePiracy defense lawyer (better known for representing Julian Assange and participating in TPB trial) called the claims the most unreasonable he’d ever seen in his life.

The District Court finally handed down its decision, where it found the tracker operator guilty of copyright violation, but largely dismissed the prosecution’s demands for extremely harsh punishment. As a result, SwePiracy operator avoided a lengthy sentence and got only probation and 100 hours community service. In monetary terms, the prosecution’s claim for millions was dramatically reduced to $148,000, which must be paid to Nordisk Film. In addition, the state confiscated $45,600 allegedly generated by torrent tracker.

As you can understand, the sentence could’ve been much worse, but the site operator disagreed and decided to launch an appeal.

BREIN Tracked down YouTube Uploader
Dutch anti-piracy outfit is still pursuing online pirates all over the world, including YouTube users. For example, BREIN has just forced a pirating movie uploader to stop his activities under threat that he may have to pay penalties up to thousands of euros.

As you can see, piracy problem is not restricted only to infringing websites and services. Copyright infringing content is widely available on many legitimate platforms as well, and YouTube is not an exception.

Although YouTube has fingerprinting technology in its Content-ID system, full copies of popular movies can still be easily found on the site, and BREIN’s member has found one. The group took an immediate action and traced the uploader, who had promised his audience a new movie every week. After that, BREIN claimed that YouTube uploaders might have to pay for their infringing activities and forced the uploader to cease his. The group also reiterated that illegal YouTube uploaders could face a cease and desist order with a penalty clause for future infringements, along with a settlement amount for the past infringements.

In this particular case, the uploader was let off without any monetary claims, but the anti-piracy group warned that repeat infringers might not be as lucky. As a result, BREIN didn’t need YouTube to hand over the personal details of the uploader, but the group claimed it could take the necessary legal action to do so in case of necessity. It must be said that BREIN actually did the same with an eBook pirate who used Google Play to share copyrighted content.

Industry observers recall that this was not the first time that the group has targeted an individual uploader. For example, earlier in 2016 it also targeted the Pirate Bay and KickassTorrents uploaders, as well as a prolific Usenet uploader and a Facebook music pirate. Unlike the YouTuber, all of them were ordered to pay thousands of euros in damages. It remains unknown why the uploader avoided punishment, but the suggestions are that BREIN decided to drop a monetary settlement because he was a minor. In addition, it is clearly more valuable for BREIN to let pirates know that they can face huge troubles on YouTube just like on any pirate website.

Torrent Uploader Admitted Copyright Infringement and Fraud
Back in 2015, British police arrested Wayne Evans, aka OldSkoolScouse, after the latter offered a capella tracks to other budding DJs and remixers. PIPCU officers raided an address in the UK following a joint investigation with licensing outfit PRS for Music. They targeted a 38-year-old man alleged of the unlawful distribution of music online: aside from uploading packs of the UK’s Top 40 Singles to various torrent websites on the weekly basis, he also ran his own website with a capella versions.

The defendant appeared at the court a few days ago to plead guilty to two counts of distributing an article infringing copyright and one of possessing or controlling an article for use in fraud. Judging by multiple online profiles created by the man over the years, he has a keen and long-standing interest in music. Now the copyright enforcement unit has seized two of his music-related sites.

The UK police claimed that such cases highlighted the issue of digital piracy and its effect on the entertainment industry and other content creators whose work is being infringed. They also announced later that the man massively distributed Top 40 chart music and “a cappella” music, which resulted in significant losses to the entertainment industry as a whole. Wayne Evans now awaits sentencing, while the PIPCU believes its investigation shows commitment of the group to fight online piracy, as well as the importance of working with the industry partners.

It is also known that Wayne Evans was granted unconditional bail and is going to return to court for sentencing in a couple weeks.

BuzzFeed Was Hacked in Retaliation for Exposing a Hacker
