KickAssTorrents-Top-10-Most-Popular-Torrent-Websites-Of-2015Short Bytes: A 20-year-old Dutch Torrent uploader has been warned by the court and asked to stop his illegal activities. However, the user was allowed to go unpunished with the condition that he will delete the existing torrents, stop adding new one, and delete his KickassTorrents account.

Being a prolific Torrent uploader can earn you quite a reputation on Torrent websites. However, uploading pirated content can sometimes earn you a call from a court and some serious warning.

In a similar development, a Dutch judge has warned a KickassTorrents user who uploaded more than 750 pirated files. The court warned the user to cease his activities, or face thousands of Euros in fine. However, the court has allowed him to escape more serious punishment.

The case was filed by a local anti-piracy group BREIN, which monitors and takes such actions against popular Torrent uploader who are indulged in piracy. This group is backed by Hollywood and looks to protect the rights of original content makers.

TorrentFreak states: “BREIN argued that the man’s infringing activities were causing irreparable damage for the various copyright holders involved. In addition, his efforts help frustrate the growth of legal services such as Spotify and Netflix.”

This recent case was filed against a 20-year-old student who uploaded Torrents including a full season of The Walking Dead and the film Avengers: Age of Ultron, both with Dutch subtitles.
