ABS-CBN Anti-Piracy Campaigns Lauded for "Massive Impact"

Piracy is something so big on the internet that almost everything that exists gets pirated. Games, movies, music, or books, you name it, it's probably pirated.

That is why when Torrent Freak, a renowned publication focusing on news about copyright, piracy and file sharing, praises ABS-CBN for having a major effect on the battle against piracy then you know it is something big.

With an article named "Media Giant Keeps Seized Revenue from Pirate Sites", written by the founder and Editor-in-Chief of Torrent Freak Ernesto Van Der Sar, he stated that ABS-CBN made an all out effort to sue pirate sites in the US. They already won a number of them getting them from hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars. However, bigger than the monetary victory they also had bigger effect on the pirates themselves.

The article stated this:

We previously covered how ABS-CBN managed to get court orders to seize domain names, without the defendants getting actively involved. This is also the case in a recent lawsuit where a Florida federal court signed a broad injunction targeting more than two dozen sites that offered the company’s content. The websites, including abscbn-teleserye.com, dramascools.com,tvnijuan.org, pinoydailyshows.com and weeklywarning.org, may not be known to a broad audience but their domain names have all been suspended, linking to a takedown message instead.

It is also apparent that revenue for these said sites have been frozen to allow ABS-CBN to get their money back if the defendants fail to respond. US District Court Judge Cecilia Antonaga awarded the media giant with over a million of dollars in statutory trademark infringement damages. This is in addition to the copyright infringement fines the said websites would need to settle.

ABS-CBN strengthened their campaign against piracy under former ABS-CBN Global COO Raffy Lopez alongside the efforts of ABS-CBN AVP and Head of Global Anti-Piracy Elisha Lawrence.
