Gadget360 reports the global crackdown on torrent websites is spurring pirates to get more creative. The site reports movie pirates are increasingly using legit services like Google Drive or other cloud services. Even YouTube is a popular piracy site, this is achieved by uploading the videos as unlisted and sharing the links via forums.
Pirates are reportedly also using the My Maps feature of Google Maps to share links to pirated movies:
The most unusual service that is being abused for distributing content that we came across is My Maps. It's a feature Google introduced in 2007 to enable users to create custom maps. Anyone can visit the My Maps website, and create a custom map by pointing to a location on the map, adding a title, and filling up a description box. Google doesn't verify what kind of information users are sharing in description, so you can again easily share links to unlisted YouTube streams, or Google Drive files to download. What this means is that people can then share locations on maps, which lead to the pirated movies.
The fight against piracy is a lot like the fight against Hydra, you cut off one head and two more grow back.
