veepn lawsuitUPDATE – 8/2/2022:

A settlement has been reached between VPN Company VeePN & various filmmakers in a Virginia Court.

You can find the original details of this story below.

After filmmakers and Law Firm 42 Ventures succeeded in freezing the assets of VeePN, a deal was struck between the companies.

While most of the details remain private, we did learn some of the specifics of the case as reported by TorrentFreak.

VeePN has reportedly agreed to block access to torrent websites and various streaming sites to servers located in the US.

We have seen similar instances of this in the past:

As first reported by TorrentFreak, various filmmakers have teamed up with Hawaiian Law Firm 42 Ventures to target VeePN.

The plaintiffs allege VeePN promotes the use of Popcorn Time APK which 42 Ventures owns the trademark for.

42 Ventures also has the trademark logo registered for the popular torrent site YTS.mx, which advertises VeePN.

The filmmakers asked the courts for a temporary restraining order to freeze the company’s funds.

This request was ultimately granted, however, the lawsuit is still pending.

VeePN has failed to respond to these allegations but may likely need to in the near future.

This is due to the fact that the restraining order granted by the court requires PayPal and AliPay to freeze VeePN’s funds while the lawsuit is pending.

They have also noted that VeePN must immediately stop promoting itself as a Popcorn Time VPN.

It looks like they have adhered to this order as the Popcorn Time page on their website is no longer available.

Judge Anthony Trenga noted the following regarding the allegations against VeePN:

The Copyright Plaintiffs are likely to succeed on their contributory infringement claim because they have shown that VeePN promotes and distributes Popcorn Time VPN…

Additionally, at the website https://veepn.com/blog/popcorn-time-vpn, Defendant VeePN promotes itself as ‘Popcorn Time VPN,’ explicitly stating that: ‘Downloading and sharing files via torrent is a violation of copyright law. It means that you may be punished by law. That’s why you need a Popcorn Time VPN
