PH Government shuts down torrent site Kat.PH

Earlier this week, torrent site KAT.PH was inaccessible to visitors after the Philippine Government executed a take-down of the country-code top level domain (ccTLD).

KAT.PH (used to be kickasstorrents.com) hosts a torrent site for pirated movies, music, software and games.

Local domain registrar, dotPH, blocked access to the domain after it received a TRO from the RTC which was filed by the Intellectual Property Office.

The site is still accessible via other domain names it still maintains.

Now that KAT.PH is down, which PH domain is next?

    Mister Blancaflor, Ser, Nag-college po ba kayo?
    after nyong mag-enroll ng mga subjects sa college, saan kayo pumupunta para maging official yung enrollment nyo? Sa Registrar!

    Ano ang gawa ng Registrar? Tagapag-lista ng mga enrolees ng eskwelahan!
    Ngayon, pagka ba may ginawang kagaguhan yung estudyante, Yun bang Registrar ang babalikan mo? Ang sagot, nyo ay malamang, HINDE!

    Alam nyo po bang ang dotPH ay isa lamang Registrar?
    Opo isa syang registrar ng mga individuals or groups/companies/entities who wants to have an Online presence. Sa madaling salita, walang kinalaman ang dotPH domain sa mga activities ng nagpa-register ng domain sa kanila, in this case, yung Kat.Ph.

    So, ngayon na alam nyo na kung ano ang Internet Domain Registrar, bakit naging respondent ang dotPH domains sa inyong kabobohan?

    Dahil? Incompetent kayo! Hindi nyo alam ang ginagawa nyo!
    Puro kayo Pa-BIBO! Mga BOBO at Tanga nman kayo!
    Alam nyo ba kung anong mangyayari dyan sa ikakaso nyo sa dotPH domain registrar? Wala! kasi nde sila related or connected sa Kat.Ph na syang inaakusahan nyo na nag-infringe ng mga copyrights ng mga OPM songs.

    At kung mamalasin kayo, babalikan pa kayo ng dotPH domains, dahil sa paninirang puri, public scandal and Libelous publicity ninyo!

  4. Well, I still think na ang primary reason for this ay dahil sa dala ng kat ang TLD na “.ph”
    It’s as if the web is saying that…

    “Come to the Philippines, we’re a source of piracy”

    Pa-good image lang.. Kaya parin naman ng kat na bumalik sa gameplay eh…
