The Motion Picture Assn. of America has filed suit against two Web sites that it claims are allowing Internet users to view pirated films, many of which are still in theatres. The lawsuit, filed on behalf of the major studios, seeks to shut cinematube.net and ssupload.com from further infringing on the copyrights of the MPAA members.
A domain search also indicated cinematube.net’s servers are located in Malaysia. The site averages more than 24,000 unique users each day who view more than 85,000 pages of content. Servers for ssupload.com are located in Arizona and average 55,000 unique daily visitors who view more than 190,000 pages of content per day.
