Zamunda.net 2013 BitTorrent Indexing
Zamunda.net (also operating as Zamunda.se and Zelka.org) and Arenabg.com: These Bulgarian-operated sites are among the most visited pirate sites not only in Bulgaria, but in the region. They offer a wide range of pirated content including movies, music, software, and electronic games. In late 2012, four of Arenabg.com’s Bulgarian operators were convicted and fined approximately $662 each; however, the site remains operational and reportedly has been moved to servers located in Canada. In 2013, a Bulgarian appeals court set aside some of the convictions because the seven-year statute of limitations had expired before the trial court’s decision was finalized. At present, a criminal case against operators of Zamunda.net is ongoing. A version of Zamunda.net and its mirror site, Zamunda.se, remain operational and are now hosted in Switzerland. The original Zamunda is now called Zelka.org and continues to be hosted in The Netherlands.
