FMovies Loses Control of Swedish Domain, Moves to Iceland

Story :

Over the past several years, dozens of streaming sites have sprung up to service users looking for a torrent-style fix, without having to deal with the relative complications of torrent sites.

With colorful and intuitive interfaces, these streaming platforms look much more like Netflix than The Pirate Bay, while offering much of the same video content. Visitors simply find the title they like and press play, with the action taking place right inside the browser.

Born just a couple of years ago, FMovies (also known as BMovies) is one such site. From a standing start the site grew exponentially, largely due to offering tens of thousands of mainstream movies and TV shows to an audience of millions, for free.

This popularity caused problems, however. With copyright holders always looking to throw a wrench in the works, FMovies has been forced to skip from domain to domain, to circumvent ISP blockades in various countries and to avoid the kind of search engine downgrading that comes with having a lot of infringing content indexed by Google.
