ACE Shuts Down Pirate Site that Caused $0.50 in Damages, Per Visit
Anti-piracy coalition ACE has booked another victory by shutting down We-Play, one of the largest piracy portals in Thailand. Local police carried out a raid in Bangkok and arrested the alleged operator of the site. We-Play reportedly ’caused’ $1.2 million in losses per month, which translates to $0.50 for every visit to the site.
