Computer Festival Organizer Ran Pirate Torrent Site

A few weeks ago, Swedish police seized the domain name of one of the largest local private torrent trackers, Rarat.org. Following the investigation of PayPal, the authorities managed to identify and arrest the prime target. To their surprise, he also happened to be an organizer of the largest computer festival in the world, Dreamhack.

Rarat.org is relatively unknown in other countries, but in Sweden it gained local fame as one of the most popular private trackers. However, a few weeks ago the Rarat’s homepage was replaced with a message notifying the site visitors that the site’s operators were subject to a search, seizure, and arrest, following a complaint from a movie company that tracked down the site’s PayPal payments.

Indeed, it turned out that Nordisk Film, SF and Disney filed a criminal complaint against the tracker 3 years ago. The complaint lists 5 movies, and the total scale of the damages could reach over a million dollars. Eventually, PayPal identified the person who received Rarat’s donations and passed this information over to a special unit of Sweden’s Department of National Police Operations, which tracked down one of the alleged operators of the torrent tracker.

It was also found that the prime suspect was involved in the organization of the winter edition of Dreamhack, the largest computer festival. About 50,000 computer and gaming fanatics will attend the upcoming event in Jönköping. Earlier in November, the Dreamhack organizer was arrested and taken in for questioning over the charges of copyright infringement. Besides, his house was searched, and several computers were seized as evidence. The alleged site operator denies his involvement with the torrent tracker, but Dreamhack has put him on leave from work.

Admiral_Smith avatarIn the United States perspective, I see the Department of Commerce and maybe the Department of Treasury getting involved. This also means the Pentagon level drug enforcers, ICE, may have got involved with it. How? It has to do with the Department of Taxation and it goes a little above US Secret Service. Yeah, in the US, the taxes and commerce are separate departments. In USA Aryan nation terms, they would call them Mexican Twinkies and just give them prison time to protect them from the wrath of (Mexico).

amebix avatarXpoZ, What do you find funny in all of this? You being an uploader could find yourself in an identical situation to some degree. They view uploaders (torrent re-leasers) just to blame as site "owner/masters/"
