Cloudflare faces lawsuit from porn site ALS Scan for helping pirate sites

Porn site ALS Scan has filed a lawsuit against Cloudflare, saying that the company is helping pirate sites stay online, which is hurting ALS’ business, TorrentFreak reported.

Among CloudFlare’s best-known customers is The Pirate Bay, the report said.

CloudFlare offers denial of service protection and content delivery network services that are used by many websites around the world.

“The problems faced by ALS are not limited to the growing presence of sites featuring infringing content, or ‘pirate’ sites. A growing number of service providers are helping pirate sites thrive by supporting and engaging in commerce with these sites,” ALS said.

ALS Scan names several other companies in its court filing, including advertising provider Juicy Ads.

It also lists Imgchili.net, Slimpics.com, Cumonmy.com, Bestofsexpics.com, Stooorage.com and other CloudFlare customers that ALS alleged host copyright infringing material that it owns.

CloudFlare and Juicy Ads have yet to file a formal response to the allegations, according to TorrentFreak.
