Mangamura Uploader Pleads Guilty, Another Denies Charges

Following the July arrest of the alleged mastermind behind massive ‘pirate’ manga site Mangamura, former contributors to the site are being rounded up. A man pleaded guilty this morning to uploading copyrighted images to the now-defunct site, while a woman who lived with him denied the same charges.

After being founded in 2016, ‘pirate’ manga-focused site Mangamura was blamed for facilitating huge volumes of pirate downloads.

Previously, local anti-piracy group CODA estimated damages to the manga industry of around $2.91 billion. That all came to an end last year, however, after the site mysteriously shut down.

For those who contributed to the platform, the past is proving more difficult to leave behind. In July, alleded site mastermind Romi Hoshino, 28, was arrested in the Philippines when attempting to board a plane to Hong Kong. This morning, two alleged upoaders appeared in a Japan court facing charges of copyright infringement.

The first, a 26-year-old man called Kota Fujisaki, pleaded guilty at Fukuoka District Court to uploading copyrighted images to Mangamura in violation of Japan’s copyright law.

However, 24-year-old woman Shiho Ito pleaded not guilty to the same charges, Jiji reports.

Hoshino was held by law-enforcement authorities in the Southeast Asian country in July, the same month the Fukuoka prefectural police acquired the arrest warrant for him on suspicion of violating the copyright law.

Popular Torrent Sites of 2019

What are the most-visited torrent sites at the start of 2019? As we continue a long-standing tradition, we see that YTS has taken over the lead from The Pirate Bay. After some turbulent years, the list of torrent sites has remained fairly intact, although there are some movers and shakers.

While streaming is all the rage nowadays, torrent sites still remain popular.

The Pirate Bay has long been the undisputed leader in terms of traffic, but if we look at the most visited domains at the start of this year, it’s now surpassed by YTS and 1337x.

TPB’s dip can be attributed to the frequent downtime and connectivity issues over the past months. It remains the go-to torrent site for many when it’s accessible, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if the site regains the lead in the coming months.

This year’s list includes one newcomer. TorrentDownloads is back after a year of absence. The site takes the place of iDope which disappeared from the scene last year.

We traditionally limit our overview to typical torrent sites that are targeted primarily at an English or international audience. This means that RuTrackerDytt8EliteTorrent, and Torrent9 aren’t included even though they would qualify in terms of traffic.

Below is the full list of the ten most-visited torrent sites at the start of the new year. The list is based on various traffic reports and we display the Alexa rank for each. In addition, we include last year’s ranking.

As it was recently reported, in the Netherlands were turned off servers of the streaming player Moonwalk, which was very popular among pirate online cinemas.

Disabled Moonwalk Steam Player servers

TorrentFreak was the first to report about it with reference to the Dutch Copyright Foundation (BREIN).

In its crusade on Moonwalk, BREIN teamed up with the American ACE (Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment) and the MPAA (American Film Association). Anti-piracy groups BREIN, MPA and ACE have teamed up to take down Moonwalk, a system that allegedly provides back-end services for around 80% of pirate Russian streaming sites. BREIN says that Moonwalk’s database contains 26,000 movies and more than 10,000 TV shows. An announcement from Moonwalk says it will “NEVER be up again.” The Moonwalk website also has an announcement that the site is “permanently closed.”
