For a long time, many people used to watch MovieTube and it became a source of watching movies but everyone was confused when it suddenly disappeared. Today, we answer the question that bothers everyone – what happened to MovieTube?
In truth, MovieTube is gone and it’s will never be coming back. A little while ago, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) filed a lawsuit against MovieTube and all the sites that were affiliated with it. Including www.MovieTube.com, www.MovieTube.org, www.MovieTube.net, www.MovieTube.co and even the MovieTube app among many others. The MPAA – which contains some of the biggest movie producers around including Disney, 20th Century Fox and Paramount – filed a complaint with several sites including MovieTube, FunTube, and KissDrama.
Immediately, the owner of MovieTube (and 28 other domains) pulled every single site but remained tight-lipped over the situation. Despite the claims that came from court, the owner didn’t respond so the MPAA took the case to the federal court in New York. After a trial process, it was decided that MovieTube was responsible for a loss of earnings to the film producers and were demanded to pay over $10 million in damages. Furthermore, the movie studios themselves will take over the domains to ensure that they never go back live.
Ultimately, the movie studios are very unlikely to see the money that’s owed to them because nobody is aware of the true identity of the owner of the site and they will not come out of hiding for fears of being slapped with the charge. However, this wasn’t important for the movie producers. In fact, many of them have noted how the real victory came when they were given control of the domain names. Now that they have control, the sites will never go live again and the whole procedure can be shut down.
If you were wondering what happened to your trusty site for watching your favourite movies, you now know what happened. Also, you can give up dreaming because you know that they will never be making a grand re-entrance back onto the internet. For those who used the website, or any of the others, it is time to move on and find a different source for your movie needs!
