BREIN Shuts Down ‘Pirate Cinema’ On Facebook

You know what would be a brilliant idea? Running an illegal online movie theater that live-streams pirated movies on Facebook! What could possibly go wrong?

Anti-piracy group BREIN has shut down a popular Facebook page that acted as an online movie theater, live-streaming popular movies to tens of thousands of followers. The page in question was operated by a Dutch man who, faced with an ex parte court order, agreed to a €7,500 settlement.
