Popcorn Time Domain Suspension Was Triggered by Falsified Court Document

For example, the court stamp and the signed date are from May 2019 while the document itself was filed in November 2019, according to the header. The case reference number also identifies a completely unrelated lawsuit and the paperwork shows several other signs of tampering. – Ernesto, TorrentFreak » https://ift.tt/2RKgA7U

The original Popcorn Time team shut down its operation well over a year ago, but some members have now come out in support of the Popcorntime.io fork. As of today the original Popcorn Time domain name no longer links to the “goodbye” message, but to its popular successor. […] Aside from a seal of approval, nothing will change. The “official” fork will continue to operate from the .io domain and the original domain name remains in control of Popcorn Time’s founder. – Ernesto, TorrentFreak

Popcorn Time Stops Working After Domain Suspension

One of the most-used Popcorn Time forks has lost control of its domain name. Time4popcorn.eu was suspended by the EURid registry this afternoon and as a result millions of users can no longer use the application. The developers have already relocated to a new domain and hope to resolve the issue quickly. […] As a result Popcorn Time’s website is no longer loading. However, what’s even worse for those who use the fork is that the application itself also stopped working as it requires the domain to load the user interface. The developers quickly switched the site over to time4popcorn.com, but it will take some time to update the application. […] The issues with EURid show that the domain name is a weak link. This is problematic, especially for an application that claims it “will never be taken down.” The developers realize this and are working to resolve the vulnerability. – Ernesto,TorrentFreak

Developer Registers “Popcorn Time” Trademark to Prevent Abuse

The Popcorn Time app brought BitTorrent streaming to the mainstream earlier this year. The idea was to have a free and open source project that anyone can build upon. […] The original app was shut down by the developers after a few weeks, but the project was quickly picked up by others. This resulted in several popular forks that have each developed their own features, with most releasing their source code in public. […] Recently, however, [Canadian developer David Lemarie] made a move to formalize his claim on the Popcorn Time brand. An application for the trademark was filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office and this week the case was assigned to an examiner. […] Time 4 Popcorn, one of the popular forks, is not happy with the trademark application. They describes it as “rude” and stress that the Popcorn Time name doesn’t belong to anyone. – Ernesto,TorrentFreak
