BREIN Takes out 'Largest Illegal Top Site Ever'

Postby SlyckTom » Tue Dec 16, 2008 3:27 pm

It seems that BREIN, the Dutch anti-piracy organization, is on a roll as it has announced the take down of Sparta. In November of this year, BREIN announced the shut down of a large Top Site named TV Land. BREIN accused TV Land of providing 45 terabytes of copyrighted material, and working in conjunction with the BitTorrent site SceneTorrents.org - an unusual act of cooperation between the scene and BitTorrent.

While at that time 45 terabytes was considered significant and perhaps the largest take down, BREIN is now claiming that today's victory is even more significant. According to BREIN, Sparta contained over 65 terabytes of illegal material - earning the destination of the "Largest illegal top site ever taken offline".

"Today Dutch piracy watchdog BREIN took down the ftp servers of the illegal top site SPARTA. The site hosted 65 terabyte of illegal films, tv series, music, games, business software, audio books, etcetera. It was the largest illegal top sites ever taken offline. 1 terabyte is 1000 gigabyte, that is 250 films or games or 25,000 songs. This site contained 65 times those quantities. Earlier this month BREIN took down a top site of 45 terabyte."

Only last week, BREIN eliminated over 75 BitTorrent indexing sites. Although their departure wasn't felt too deeply in the BitTorrent community, Sparta's closure, and its 65 terabytes of warez, might be.

i haven't seen any ripple effects in the scene itself, so unless this "victory" means nothing or they are full of shit.

Not exactly an awesome choice using the Demonoid mascot with this story

Making me think they shut down Demonoid AGAIN

Well.. just like xforce said... there's nothing on it...

As far as I can see this.. there's nothing they can do to stop it now... perhaps in 1997.. but now... I don't think so

I mean.. we have what?

RS and its similar pages, ed2k w/ Kad (try to drop that one LOL), trackerless torrents and public torrent sites, USENET (which is the stronger of them all), etc...

It's almost impossible to stop it, so in case there's some crappy site actually making money off the users, there's nothing they can do (in my point of view)
Did you know that Pulp Fiction cost $8 million to make - $5 million going to actor's salaries?

'Largest Illegal Top Site Ever' ? This is a bit of a bold statement no ? I detect connotations of omnicience, not bad for an org named Brein. It is a shame Brein are morally bankrupt, and have the vision of a medieval religious guild.

took them long enough to take it down. this scene notice was pre'd on Nov. 22nd, 2008...
" Some.Info.About.A.Rented.Site.Called.Sparta.TS.XVID.P2P-NoticeoftheScene "
sorry about the format, i had pasted it to pastebin weeks ago but deleted it from my HDD, so here's from the paste. original link is http://de.pastebin.ca/1264666



well, this was supposed to be rlsd along long time ago
but now i had enough

no, i dont have any logs about that site like any real pro would, i just have this stuff im gonna present:

ive been into some p2p channels to do some research about how much it costs to be in that site (unfortunetly ive
also been there as affil, till i found out whats going on....)

here is some recent log from a p2p member ive talked to about this leeching:

<s****87> i wud rather pay
<s****87> for a TB
<s****87> on one of the 45TB axx
<*******> yep
<*******> SPARTA u mean
<*******> ?
<s****87> yeah
<s****87> speeds are even better
<s****87> bcz they are leasweb
<s****87> yes it sucks with 500GB right now
<s****87> as darks (OTHER SITE) i wud get unlimited

this message above was by TORRENTLEECH uploader

i knew for a fact that sparta had 45TB from someone else affilated in that site right now, also that p2p channel
is known as people trying to find leeches on SPARTA or on other sites, like TVland who got their nfo lately (and they are still running btw as far as i know)

look at this log, who proves (partly) the connection between SPARTA and SCT:
(this scene member is also a p2p tracker owner)

[00:28] <ME> sites like sparta do give out bad names
[00:28] <ME> he is like
[00:28] <ME> "we are not p2p"
[00:28] <ME> the admin
[00:28] <ME> im like
[00:28] <ME> yeah sure
[00:28] <SCENEMEMBER> sparta sells leech slots
[00:28] <ME> i know
[00:28] <SCENEMEMBER> 45Ç for 300gb
[00:29] <ME> we are gonna leave there
[00:29] <ME> since the day we got affil there
[00:29] <ME> sct and other torrent sites gets our stuff way faster
[00:29] <SCENEMEMBER> they are not even fast ;>
[00:29] <SCENEMEMBER> sct owns sparta you idiot
[00:29] <ME> wtf
[00:29] <ME> i didnt knew that
[00:29] <ME> i just thought theyre selling it
[00:30] <SCENEMEMBER> how the fuck do you think they do do under 10 sec pretime on tv stuff pred on sparta
[00:30] <ME> :(
[00:30] <ME> why no one rls nfo about it
[00:30] <ME> or something
[00:31] <SCENEMEMBER> already did, they changed bnc and is running again
[00:31] <SCENEMEMBER> many affils left site when nfo came

as far as i know, SCT as well runs XXX group. by the info i got from this user.

another log:
thats from an uploader p2p channel of some torrent tracker named ChronicTracker (no, i didnt uploaded, i just promised i will :) )

[00:29] <------> [COMPLETE] [TV-XVID] øø The.Real.Monarch.Of.The.Glen.S01E05.WS.PDTV.XviD-REMAX completed 9 seconds after PRE À
(used to be colorful, my logs dont copy colors :S)

this ^ is a log from sparta irc channel copied to p2p channels by a pay leecher, (ohhh, so thats why they have +u on all the channels :P )

also copied a part of the site rules:
[05:48] <------> [0.3] BANNED:JustDifferent, AlternativePorn, CockLovers À

another one by different member in that p2p channel who questiond me about SPARTA, this one is Pisexy uploader:

[00:47] <starbursts> hmm
[00:47] <starbursts> what prices/packages do they have?
[00:47] <ME> prices?
[00:47] <ME> ah
[00:47] <ME> sec
[00:47] <starbursts> and is it as good as sparta?
[00:48] <ME> whats sparta
[00:48] <ME> dont know

---


[05:18] <starburst> man if we could get auto send from sparta

now this log proves it all

after some time, in that channel, william is uploading both pisexy and ChronicTracker, other leechers comes up
as i showed above

now this is just small copy out of their irc , just to show william did copy exact bot words:

[03:19] <Sparta> RACE in DVDR: -> ---/RACER is joining on Do.You.See.Seoul.COMPLETE.NTSC.DVDR-TiiX @ 3.0MB/s and 73 files left.
[03:20] <Sparta> COMPLETE in DVDR: -> Mother.and.Daughters.NTSC.DVDR-TiiX ( 4.7GB in 94F at avg speed 3.4MB/s 23m 18s ) by 3 racer(s) from 2 group(s).

[03:20] <SPARTA-PRE> [COMPLETE] [DVDR] øø Mother.and.Daughters.NTSC.DVDR-TiiX completed 24 minutes 40 seconds after PRE

now, you can believe it, and you can just dont care for it, i got all the info about that site, as well as groups
affilated in there, im no longer in there for along time now, as far as i heard, groups CRiMSON and 2HD used to be there
until they found out that site is rented and p2p, and left it, good job guys, you have my respect

now i advice to all groups, and racers to drop on that site, ofcourse its Rented on Leasaweb,
its been running for some time now and changing bnc from time to time to not get discoverd.

owners/siteops there are Upper and JiMBO.

this is their ftp as far as my logs shows:

[13:40] <Sparta> [Sparta]-[Our BNCs]:
[13:40] <Sparta> [Sparta]-[SPARTAftp.info:47335]-[ONLINE]-[ 1 ms]

just go to ripe.net and see the info about that BNC

Another own goal from scene "fanatics" .

Its seems the scene is turning into a place of backstabbing and tell-tales, my advice for those who dont agree with "outing" personal info to make themselves feel important, is to step out of what seems to be a collapsing house of cards until the snitches are routed out, its one thing to get pissed at p2p or selling but its not cool to turn folks over to the gov.

If it was so big, then why didn't we hear about it? Seriously?

No, not small at all. 65 terabytes is roughly 14,000 DVDs.

I haven't heard of it either, but that doesn't mean it wasn't big. Some people have a tendency to look at something by how popular it is or how many members it has, instead of the size of file contents it contains.
