The Alliance for Creativity (ACE) has submitted a subpoena request to Cloudflare hoping to uncover information on various torrent site operators.
As first reported by TorrentFreak, ACE worked with the MPA to request a DMCA subpoena at the US District Court for the Central District of California.
We want to know what you think of ACE & the MPA’s attempt to uncover popular torrent site operators. Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below!
The subpoena is targeting some heavy hitters in the torrenting world, including the most popular of all time, The Pirate Bay.
Many have tried to dismantle the Pirate Bay over the years with various tactics including delisting and more.
The latest attempt to stifle the Pirate Bay comes in the form of a DMCA subpoena submitted to Cloudflare by ACE.
In the subpoena, ACE is attempting to gain access to information pertaining to the site operators such as IP addresses and more.
The subpoena requires that you provide information concerning the individuals offering infringing material described in the attached notice…
This would include the individuals’ names, physical addresses, IP addresses, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses, payment information, account updates and account history.
The Pirate Bay wasn’t the only site targeted, as there are some other well-known torrent sites also listed in a letter sent to Cloudflare Inc.

We have seen Cloudflare subpoenaed in the past for popular streaming apps such as BeeTV & TeaTV.
They are also actively fighting orders in Italy to block popular torrent sites through their public DNS resolver.
It will be interesting to see if Cloudflare complies with the latest subpoena from ACE and what measures they may take.
