Torrents Time is although jumping into the popularity list of streaming services with the adoption after the likes of Kickass Torrents and The Pirate bay chamioned the plugin. BREIN, the Hollywood-backed anti-piracy firm is looking to shut down Torrents Time and have already issued a ‘cease and desist’ notice to the team.
In a statement, BREIN’s lawyer wrote “according to the law and jurisprudence of The Netherlands you are acting unlawful and infringe the copyrights and neighboring rights of others, including the rights holders whose interests are represented by BREIN.”
Finally, Torrents Time has responded to that letter by claiming that the accusations are false and however unsubstantiated. By saying that the software was “carefully crafted not to do anything whatsoever so as to breach copyright or neighboring rights.” The plugin-maker is by far being confident about its stand that it has even warned BREIN to wirhdraw its demands or it will be faced with criminal proceedings on grounds of illegal threats and extortion.
