Universal partner finds pirated Jurassic World at 127.0.0.1 location

Posted on Friday, July 24 2015 @ 10:33:25 CEST by


A company called TMG, acting on behalf of movie studio Universal Pictures France, submitted DMCA requests to Google demanding takedown actions against itself. These companies use automated tools to search the web, which in this case resulted in demanding Google that it removes from search results not only a bunch of warez sites but also http://127.0.0.1:4001/#/fr/ because the tools found a pirated copy of Jurassic World at that location.

As you may know, 127.0.0.1 is the IPv4 localhost address of your computer, so TMG/Universal seems to have picked up a Jurassic World torrent seed from its own servers.
A company called TMG, acting on behalf of Universal Pictures France, submitted a DMCA request to Google, demanding that it remove search results for 1divx.info, forum.wawa-mania.ec and zone-telechargement.com, believing them to be complicit in hosting, or linking to, downloads of summer blockbuster movie Jurassic World.

But along with those sites, the company brilliantly submitted a takedown request for http://127.0.0.1:4001/#/fr/. For those who aren’t aware, 127.0.0.1 is an IPv4 address reserved for the computer that you’re already on, known also as the ‘localhost’.
