In December 1, 2011 the "Vysotsky. Thanks to God, I’m alive
" movie was started in 1400 theatres all over Russia. During the month of the rent, as a part of movie infringing protection campaign, Pirate Pay team was providing movie illegal spread among russian torrent users.
For the 30 days of movie protection by the Pirate Pay technology 44 845 infringed copies of the movie were blocked in torrents. That is, each of about 45 thousand users could not download a movie, even after finding it in the torrent networks. And this, for example, a 300 medium-sized screens, or the population of the English city of Brentwood (Essex county).
"Vysotsky" was the first movie, on which by the order of "Direktcya Kino" film company was tested a technology for automatic blocking of file sharing in real and very high load. The distributor of the film was Russia's largest distribution company Walt Disney Studios Sony Pictures Releasing (WDSSPR).
"Not everything passed smoothly in the beginning. We faced a difficult task to make a working prototype into a full service for a very short time. And in the process we gained invaluable experience, our technology has become literally a hundred times better and now Pirate Pay is able to block counterfeiting in torrents much better, and 45 000 blocked attempts to download - is not the limit.
" says Alex Klimenko, CTO of Pirate Pay.
