Romania Seizes Domain of the World’s Largest Private Torrent Site Filelist.ro Following Criminal Investigation.
Romania is known for having ineffective and lackluster policies in preventing content piracy. It is, in fact, on the USTR’s watch list [PDF] for the year 2020. Therefore, it isn’t too surprising that Romanian authorities are keen on tackling the challenging task of curbing online and broadcast piracy, and the latest incident involving Filelist.ro is clear proof of that.
Reportedly, the domain of Filelist.ro, which has become one of the world’s largest and most popular private BitTorrent tracker platform since its foundation in 2007, has been seized by Romanian authorities.
