As reported by TorrentFreak, the anti-piracy group BREIN has been targeting hundreds of pirate IPTV services and tools over the past few years.

BREIN

BREIN is an anti-piracy group based in the Netherlands with a slogan that states “the art of protecting the creative.”

Recently, BREIN’s latest target appears to be a pirate IPTV provider called “GoFastIPTV.”

This chase for the operators of GoFastIPTV reportedly went all over the world through companies in Brazil and the UK. However, the chase eventually ended at a hotel in Lisbon, Portugal.

Another key piece of evidence that led BREIN to the GoFastIPTV operators was the use of the Dutch Rabobank to process payments.

BREIN took matters to court and Rabobank was then forced to cooperate and handed over payment data.

All of this information eventually led BREIN to track down the operators of GoFastIPTV in South America of all places.

Communication and legal procedures from BREIN followed and this eventually led to a €70,000 settlement with the former operator of GoFastIPTV.

The other caveats to this settlement also include a fine of €25,000 per day if the GoFastIPTV service is ever restored and a €10,000 fine for each future infringement.

This total settlement number seems modest when compared to previous shutdowns of IPTV services.

According to the official press release from BREIN, one of their representatives stated the following on this situation:

“The investigation took longer than necessary because the bank did not provide the data voluntarily. BREIN therefore had to go to court, which found the bank’s refusal to cooperate unlawful. With this judgment in hand, the issuance of name and address details will run more smoothly after a reasoned request to do so by BREIN.”

  1. I cannot imagine the cost involved in chasing down these rogue IPTV services. When will these Copyright owners and providers wake up and see they would could make an endless stream of revenue if they just provided a reasonably priced product available to all
