Bulgaria will Clean Web Space from Pirates

The two biggest torrent tracker Bulgarian Web sites, zamunda.net and arena.bg, will be closed down, said the head of Bulgaria’s Computer Crimes Department, Yavor Kolev.

He explained that they distribute pirate files and deceive users to send sms messages. “We’ll clean the web space from Internet pirates and establish legal platforms for file downloads, said Kolev at TV program last week, “I have nothing against Internet users downloading movie and music files from the net as long as that does not constitute an intellectual theft.”

The European Director of the International Recording Federation, Frances Moore, said that Bulgaria ranks first in the EU by Internet piracy. Mr. Kolev declared that the government will go after the investors in Internet piracy rather than regular Internet users to overcome the problem.

According to unconfirmed data, the true owner of the Zamunda is a Syrian citizen and arena.bg is under Russian control.
