Two Arrests In Denmark For Spreading Information About Popcorn Time

Aug 20

An anonymous reader writes: You may recall Popcorn Time, the software that integrated torrents with a streaming media player. It fell afoul of the law quite quickly, but survived and stabilized. Now, out of Denmark comes news that two men operating websites related to Popcorn Time have been arrested, and their sites have been shut down. It’s notable because the sites were informational resources, explaining how to use the software.
