EVO has not been active for several days: has the pirate group been dismantled?
He has not published any film or TV series episode for several days: an unusual silence for a community usually very prolific.
Spider-Man: No Way Home on the hunting board
This is enough to arouse the concern of users and the specialized site TorrentFreak, who fear that a major problem is preventing the group from continuing to operate. Some even mention a possible dismantling.
Indeed, EVO has been in the film and television industry’s sights for some time now, and it wouldn’t be surprising if the authorities tried to crack down on the group.
As a reminder, EVO is behind the publication of a Blu-Ray version of Spider-Man: No Way Home weeks before the product is released. Dunes had also been made available prior to its arrival in US theaters and on HBO Max. Advance copies of nomadland, Uncut Gems, The Power of the Dog and My Salinger Year also ended up online, much to the chagrin of rights holders.
Another disbanded pirate group?
In provocation, EVO pirates regularly claim their finest catches. “ We do it for fun. We know we help a lot of people who can’t afford to go to the cinema “, had declared last year a member of the group during an interview granted to TorrentFreak.
EVO also criticizes the fragmentation of rights and the proliferation of streaming platforms. ” Maybe if studios cared a bit more about the consumer, there wouldn’t be a lot of piracy on the internet. But they don’t care anymore, what matters is profit, profit and profit “, regretted the group.
The iFT group has also disappeared from the radar, again without anyone knowing why. In 2020, the United States managed to get hold of members of the SPARKS group, one of whom was convicted. This action struck fear among the ranks of the pirates. In 2011, the group IMAGiNE was dismantled, which led to sentences of up to 5 years in prison.
In recent years, video streaming has become one of the most popular ways to watch or consume films and series, whether on Free VOD or by subscription (SVoD). Today, many online services offer different catalogs, between original productions and blockbusters. How do you find your way through this jungle of subscriptions and streaming services?
