Alki David Wants BitTorrent Downloads Banned

Posted by monique On November - 14 - 2012 0 Comment

FilmOn founder and billionaire Alki David is taking a stand against BitTorrent downloads. According to TorrentFreak, David and many recording artists haven’t given up on their copyright infringement showdown with CNET’s Download.com. David is maintaining his stance that Download.com has induced piracy, David and his coalition of artists have requested that the court issue an injunction that would ban all BitTorrent client downloads.

David and his coalition of artists have been against CNET and CBS since 2011, claiming that CNET has made a profit from distributing file-sharing software that could be used to download copyrighted materials. CNET also has published reviews on Download.com that include references to illegal downloads of materials from Madonna, Rihanna, Lady Gaga and more.

In July of this year, CNET and CBS said the reviews were only opinions and that their right to free speech were being violated by being held liable for allowing infringement. A judge disagreed with CNET and CBS.

This new filing by David and coalition is hoping to stop BitTorrent clients from infringing on artists’ rights.
