The time has come to stop taking other people’s work without playing, this is the message being voiced by RightsCorp Digital after they’ve sent letters and email in regard to torrent file sharing. The private company also has the backing of more than 140 ISPs in the United States.
This is big business for RightsCorp and we’ve been informed they settled 75,000 cases in May alone, which makes the company $20 per fine when the person pays after receiving a letter or email. This payment stops the company from informing an ISP, although you are expected not to continue sharing and downloading torrent files for free movies, games, and more.
You only need to do the math, and this will reveal the company is likely making well over a million dollars in fines from reported cases being settled.
There’s custom software being used by RightsCorp to digitally detect those illegally file sharing and this is when a letter/email is sent out. You can apparently be taken offline and not able to connect with an ISP if you don’t pay up, and considering the company is working with around 140 different ISPs it’s no scam.
RightsCorp Digital apparently started in 2011, but considering the push by governments and ISPs it looks like they are starting to make real ground in stopping torrent users in their tracks.
With each infringement notice sent to Internet users, the RightsCorp letter will quote the Digital Millenium Copyright Act and is obviously helping ISPs along with the movie producers. Christopher Sabec is the founder of RightsCorp and he made it clear that when you torrent a file, they’ll “see it”.
It’s also worth noting the firm is only going after people continually breaking copyright laws and that they plan to expand into other countries like Thailand, Russia, China, and Canada. The UK wasn’t mentioned at this time. You can learn more about the company on rightscorp.com.
