I don’t know if this is still a new story to you, that tv-links.co.uk is now closed and the owner from Cheltenhamwas arrested in connection with offences relating to the facilitation of copyright infringement on the internet. The said arrest and the closure of the site – http://www.tv-links.co.uk – came during an operation by officers from Gloucestershire County Council trading standards in conjunction with investigators from Fact and Gloucestershire Police.
tv-links.co.uk was providing links to illegal film content that had been camcorder recorded from cinemas and then uploaded to the internet. The site also provided links to TV shows that were being illegally distributed.
Visitors to the site could get access to major feature films, sometimes within days of their initial cinema release. Recent links took users to illegal versions of the Disney/Pixar animation sensation Ratatouille as well as to most of this summer’s blockbusters.
I did watch movies from that site and somehow it was an advantage to me cause I don’t have time to watch movies lately. 😀
But I’m not sad at all. 🙂
