According Kuik, the foundation wants major distributors of movies, TV series and music deal. For this, it will use an automated system to search through BitTorrent to scale uploaders. Download BitTorrent is a protocol that is widely used by media pirates.
Through the system, the IP addresses of diffusers are collected. Every Internet user has a unique IP address, which can determine who exactly upload media.
