Anti Piracy domain hijacked by ebook Pirates


The French Privacy group planned to launch AntiPivacy website  ProtectionLivres.com which helps authors to search and report the infringement.But the group forgot to register the domain before the launch.The same was noticed by the ebook pirates and they decided to surprise the Privacy group.Ebook Pirates group AlexandriZ registered the domain which was to be used by the privacy group and re-directed the website to Anti DRM website.

“Protectionlivres.com was supposed to be a site where publishers can report pirated content, but it’s now a portal to fight against DRM. Because DRM is one of the causes of piracy, not its effect,” Team AlexandriZ said. After the Press pointed the same to the privacy group,they issued a new press release replacing the ProtectionLivres.com with the PortailProtectionLivres.com. Though new website was launched but the pirates had the day.
