Mininova Must Block The Pirate Bay and aXXo, BREIN Demands

Earlier this week Mininova and the Dutch anti-piracy outfit BREIN fought out a civil dispute in court. In broad terms, BREIN demanded a copyright filter but an in-depth look at their demands reveals that they also suggest the BitTorrent site to block torrents tracked by The Pirate Bay and ban uploaders such as aXXo.

This Tuesday the world’s largest BitTorrent indexer appeared in court. Mininova, operated by five Dutchmen who turned their hobby project into a successful business, were sued by Dutch anti-piracy outfit BREIN which protects the rights of several large entertainment industry corporations.

BREIN’s lawyer Dirk Visser told the court that Mininova aids in the distribution of copyright infringing works, and demanded that the site implements “preventive measures” to put an end to this. It is important that Mininova covers the costs of these measures, they say.

More lies from BREIN's lawyer just like in the Piratebay case.

Demands aside, Visser also told plain lies to the court. In his plea he referred to aXXo telling the court that he was thanked by Mininova for his uploads, and rewarded with ‘VIP uploader’ status. However, VIP uploaders or any kind of special uploader statuses do not exist on Mininova, and they never have either.
I highly doubt that aXXo spoke with BREIN's lawyer, and its very amusing that they think that Mininova has a VIP uploader status system like the Piratebay.

The usenet and magnet links might be what they consider the VIP paid access
