TorrentFreak’s Letter To BREIN

Anti-piracy organization BREIN reprinted some content that originally appeared on TorrentFreak without the blog’s permission, and without even crediting them as the author. And while they were at it, they also accused TorrentFreak of being a “pirate blog”. Hold on now… I’m no legal expert here, but aren’t those considered copyright infringement and libel, repsectively? Coming from an “anti-piracy” organization?

The TorrentFreak folks thought so too, so they got their legal counsel to write a nice letter to the anti-piracy organization that engages in copyright infringement and libel… at times, funny reading.

We are neither sailors nor thieves of other people’s intellectual property, unlike yourselves.

Zing!
