Sony Pictures Targets Torrent Sites With Preemptive Takedowns
While it’s not widely publicized, many larger torrent sites regularly remove links to infringing files. This allows copyright holders to somewhat limit the availability of their works on the Internet. Generally speaking, movie studios and other rightsholders hire anti-piracy companies to track down infringing content. These outfits then send takedown notices to the sites in question. In India, the local Sony Pictures’ representatives are taking a different approach.
