Popcorn Time blames Hollywood for popularity of illegal streaming

As the unofficial Netflix for Pirates, Popcorn Time has made waves ever since it debuted back in October of 2014. With an intuitive interface that puts other BitTorrent clients to shame, Popcorn Time makes it easier than ever for users to stream their favorite TV shows and movies from within a browser or even right from their smartphones.

Not surprisingly, Popcorn Time’s arrival has been resulted in an appreciable increase in overall piracy rates across the globe. Underscoring the threat that Popcorn Time poses to traditional industry revenue streams, Netflix a few months ago even called out the service by name, painting it as a strategic threat to its core business.

It begins: Movie studio sues individual Popcorn Time users for infringement

Often described as “Netflix for pirates,” Popcorn Time users are now being targeted for infringement.

The Cobbler, in case you’re unfamiliar, stars Adam Sandler and was released in early 2015 to tepid reviews.

Though no individual names are mentioned in the suit, the makers of the film list out the 11 John and Jane Does by their IP address alongside their ISP (in this case Comcast Cable) and the date and time they accessed the movie.
