Angeblich melden sich nun diejenigen auf Reddit.com zu Wort, die movie2k.to angeblich hosten.
Hier der Originaltext:
We don’t know the people behind Movie2K, but they apparently like the Pirate Party
and decided to point the DNS entry to us. So we decided to put up an information page about copyright, the Pirate Party, and Creative Commons on a Top 20
German web site. The tiny info page had a peak traffic of about 200 MBit/s.
We don’t know how long we will be allowed to use the site, but if this lasts longer, we will probably put up some more Creative Commons content there.
EDIT: for clarity – we are members of the IT team of the German Pirate Party, not the people who ran movie2k all the time. We just run the notice site that can be currently seen at http://movie2k.to
after whoever owns the domain redirected it to our servers.
We do not have anything to do with the alleged successor movie4k.to, that looks quite similar to movie2k, and seems to provide the content that movie2k used to provide.
Edit: Added some fun facts.
By popular request, see this comment for a short summary of what the Piratenpartei Deutschland (German Pirate Party) stands for (and also notes on the general aims of the international Pirate Party movement).
Edit: Some of us have gone to sleep now, some will wake up soon. Ask your questions and they will be answered, but please don’t be angry if answers aren’t instant (it’s 5 AM here now, 0300 UTC). Edit: Yes, we are back to answering questions.
