Since the large-warning wave Redtube Germany has taken arises especially the question of how the abmahnende party came to the IP addresses of the porn watchers. According to the request for surrender of the user data that the attorney Daniel Sebastian at the Regional Court of Cologne submitted, the company itGuards determined Inc. using the software “gladii 1.1.3″ the required data. Chip.de As reported, it is very likely that the company The archives AG, which owns the rights to the corresponding Porn movies and itGuards belong together – and the porn users have deliberately set a trap
According to the report, which specializes in letterbox companies business Business Filings Incorporated, the company itGuards Inc. in mid-March of this year officially registered.
