Defense KickassTorrents demanding release of suspected owner




The law firm that represents Artem Vaulin in the United States, the US calls the case against discontinue the presumed owner of KickassTorrents and release him because the site itself did not offer material protected by copyright, but only torrent files.

The thirty-year, coming from Ukraine Artem Vaulin was late July by the Polish police arrested and have since been in a prison in Warsaw. US complain Vaulin make because of the criminal infringement of intellectual property rights and for planning laundering.

According to the defense of Vaulin in the US allegations baseless, writes TorrentFreak in response to an email sent by the defense. The e-mail is among other things that they ask to drop the charges and Vaulin to get out of prison as soon as possible.

One of the arguments cited by the defense Vaulin is that KickassTorrents itself has never hosted material infringing material. The torrent files themselves only contain text files that contain copyrighted material, get the lawyers. There is other software required to subsequently obtain material hosted elsewhere.

They also say that it is not possible to pick up on copyright violations under US law a person from outside the US as “the undisputed axiom is that the copyright laws of the US have no application falling outside the state territory. Besides giving the lawyers that the servers KickassTorrents not in the US but in Canada.

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act would not second-line copyright infringement seen as criminal and because KickassTorrents just a search engine is to text files, see the lawyers also no violation there.

The indictment is also operated from misinterpretation and misleading allegations regarding the technology behind BitTorrent and how KickassTorrents. Thus, no specific examples are cited which is related to the owner of the site with downloads. The lawyers even dare to say that the researchers from the National Homeland Security Research team the persons were who made the last 180 days copyright violations.

The letter also lawyers calling for the quick release of Vaulin on bail. The letter makes no reference to the possible ownership of Vaulin of KickassTorrents. The lawyer who defended Vaulin, Ira Rothken, is the same that Kim Dotcom previously assisted .
