One of the world’s largest ISPs is going to war with pirating sites

The war between pirate sites and rights-holders isn’t ending any time soon. But Cogent Communications, a giant ISP that underpins the backbone of the internet, seems to have struck a silent but painful blow against the pirates.

According to TorrentFreak, Cogent has started blocking access to The Pirate Bay, Putlocker and other big piracy sites across its entire network. Cogent hasn’t commented on why it’s doing this ― or, in fact, confirmed that it’s a deliberate action ― but it’s already causing big problems for streaming and torrenting across the globe.

Cogent mostly provides backbone services to regular Internet Service Providers, who then pipe the sweet, sweet internet into your house. Basically, think of it as the company that sells internet to Comcast.

TorrentFreak reports that users around the globe, from various ISPs who are affected by Cogent, have not been able to access a range of piracy sites. Those include The Pirate Bay, but also Primewire, Movie4k, Torrentproject, Couch-tuner, Cyro.se, Watchseriesfree, Megashare, Hdmovieswatch, Torrentbutler.eu, Afdah. Movie.to, Mp3monkey, Rnbxclusive.me, Torrentcd, Moviesub, Iptorrents, Putlocker.com and Torrentz.cd.

Those sites all use CloudFlare, a company that uses a large network and a public IP address to protect sites against DDOS attacks. That may have something to do with Cogent’s ability to block the piracy sites, or a reason why those sites and not others are being blocked.

For the time being, anyone affected by the outage should be able to use a VPN to get around the blocking, as it’s not a blanket blackout across one particular country or region.
