An interesting story for those of you whom visit torrent sites.https://torrentfreak.com/after-half-a-decade-we-now-know-what-yify-stands-for-160319/
n 2010 a fresh movie piracy brand began to conquer the Internet. Bypassing the so-called ‘Scene’, YIFY joined a new breed of release groups who publish their work directly to torrent sites.
A true success story, but one that ended abruptly last October. Hollywood sources tracked down the founder of YIFY and filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit in New Zealand. This meant the end of YIFY and YTS, but surprisingly the case was never heard in court.
The movie studios filed their lawsuit against Yiftach Swery, a 23-year-old app and website developer. Several years ago YIFY told TorrentFreak that the name was “just a random alias” but this explanation is hard to maintain now.
It seems Yify himself has been the only one so far of the "yify" group to make a settlement and the others are continuing the work he started across many torrent based platforms.
