Facebook and Apple helped in the arrest of Kick Ass Torrent owner
It has emerged that Apple and Facebook aided security agencies in the arrest of the owner of the world’s biggest torrent site, Kick Ass Torrent.
30 year old Artem Vaulin, a.k.a ‘tirm’ was arrested yesterday [July 20, 2016] and charged in Poland for criminal copyright infringement and money laundering.
He’s been accused of illegally reproducing and distributing hundreds of millions of copies of movies, video games, TV shows and music albums totalling more than $1 billion.
Kick Ass Torrent was founded in 2008 and it has slowly grown to become the biggest torrent sharing site in the world.
It took that mantle after the Pirate Bay experienced multiple raids and its three founders were arrested.
