    Court Orders Telegram To Block Pirated Movies, TV Shows and Music / TorrentFreak · Wednesday, 10 February - 17:44 · 2 minutes

Telegram Last November, the RIAA and MPAA nominated popular messenger app Telegram for inclusion on the USTR’s ‘notorious markets’ list, claiming that the platform doesn’t do enough to combat piracy.

A month later, the EU added the service to its own ‘Counterfeit and Piracy Watch List’, noting that along with other social media platforms, Telegram “lags behind” in respect of efforts to combat piracy.

This opinion is shared by Israel-based anti-piracy group ZIRA . Last year, ZIRA – which represents local media companies – took its complaints to court, hoping to force Telegram to take a more serious approach to infringement mitigation.

Lawsuit Filed in 2020

In February 2020, ZIRA and several local rightsholders filed a lawsuit in Israel stating that Telegram’s users utilize the service to make available and distribute infringing content to the public, including movies, TV shows and music. The anti-piracy group further alleged that some of these acts were being carried out in exchange for money.

ZIRA asked the court to issue a permanent restraining order against Telegram prohibiting the infringing activity. It also demanded an injunction against several ISPs that would require them to block access to the offending Telegram groups.

After being provided with a list of offending groups by ZIRA, a month later it was reported that Telegram had taken action against dozens of groups involved in the distribution of pirated content including movies, TV shows and sports broadcasts.

“We agree to block the channels or force the administrators to remove the reported content immediately,” Telegram said in a statement.

ZIRA Not Happy With Telegram’s Anti-Piracy Efforts

During a hearing last week, ZIRA and plaintiffs United King Films, YES, HOT and Reshet, told the court that while Telegram has been responding to its copyright complaints, the company has fallen short of expectations.

“They take down the movies, partly or entirely, but not immediately, and not in a way that satisfies us,” ZIRA counsel said, as reported by Globes.

Telegram did not submit a statement of defense and late last week the Central District Court sided with the rightsholders, handing down an injunction that aims to curtail infringing activity on Telegram, without action against local ISPs.

Telegram Must Police Pirated Groups and Content

Handed down by Judge Rami Amir, the injunction prohibits Telegram (or anyone acting with it – directly or indirectly) from providing conditions that allow pirated content owned by the plaintiffs to be made available to the public in breach of copyright. Telegram must also pay compensation of NIS 100,000 (US$30,700) and a further NIS 60,000 (US$18,400) to cover legal costs.

“We welcome the injunction, which will assist in combating pirate viewing and the wholesale copyright infringement that exists undisturbed on Telegram’s network,” a statement from the plaintiffs’ counsel reads.

“We are currently working with Telegram in order to bring about the implementation of the injunction and we will not hesitate to once again take action against any platform, in any court and with all the means in order to eliminate similar phenomena. The rights and the livelihoods of producers, performers, and artists in Israel are not to be rendered worthless.”

In April 2020, a deputy prosecutor in Italy signed an emergency order requiring Telegram to shut down 19 channels involved in the illegal distribution of newspapers and periodicals. In response, Telegram quickly deleted seven of the eight allegedly infringing channels.

    How to Set Your Telegram Account to Self-Destruct / LifehackerAustralia · Friday, 5 February - 20:00 · 1 minute

Kerboom. That’s the sound of your Telegram account automatically deleting itself. Honestly, I wish this feature was baked into more services. Wouldn’t it be great to have an old email account you never used disappear once you haven’t logged in for two years’ straight?

Telegram’s self-destruct sequence normally starts at six months’ worth of inactivity. As Telegram describes :

Telegram is not a commercial organisation, and we value our disk space greatly. If you stop using Telegram and don’t come online for at least six months, your account will be deleted along with all messages, media, contacts and every other piece of data you store in the Telegram cloud.

However, six months is just a default. You can edit that setting to a shorter or longer time period if you want a little extra security — as in, you want your account gone after a month or you don’t trust yourself and would prefer to have a little extra leeway before Telegram deletes everything on your behalf.

To get started, launch Telegram ( iOS , Android ) and pull up its settings by tapping in the lower-right corner. Next, tap on Privacy and Security, which should launch a screen that looks like this:


Tap on “If Away For” under the Automatically Delete My Account section and change it to whatever value you prefer:

  • 1 month

  • 3 months

  • 6 months

  • 12 months

And while you’re here, set up two-step verification on your account. Even though you might not have an account if you let it linger for too long, at least your inactive account will be secure for the short (or long) time period it exists. As part of Telegram’s 2FA setup, you can create a secondary password that one has to use when logging in on a new device in addition to receiving a code via SMS. That’s pretty secure, if you ask me.

    Telegram 7.4 makes it easy to migrate your WhatsApp chat history for iOS users

    Danie van der Merwe · / gadgeteerza-tech-blog · Thursday, 28 January - 07:07

Of course some of us have already deleted our WhatsApp accounts, but I did actually backup a few of my chats, so I'll be trying this out when it gets to Android.

Even if you are an iOS user who has deleted your WhatsApp account, this will still work for any chats that you did export.

    How to choose you Jabber service?

    debacle · Sunday, 24 January - 01:38 edit · 1 minute

Aren't we all envious of users of #Whatsapp, #Signal, #Telegram or #Threema? The choice of service is easy for them. There is none! Happy users!

Instead we use #Jabber or #XMPP, because we love self-hosting, don't we? Well, it is important to have the option to self-host, but in most cases it is not the best option to actually do it. So we need to select a server, based on our priorities.

I suggest to look out for:

  1. More than one admin? A single admin might be in holidays, when you need them most. Or they outburns and closes the service on short notice. Beware of the lorry factor.
  2. Sound financial base? If you pay for the service, you have a higher chance, that the service is here to stay. A service based on donations might work as good as a commercial one.
  3. Good uptime history?Here is some limited informtion about it. Also, the longer a service exists, the longer it will survive, because of the Lindy effect.
  4. Good #LTS grade? Use only A grade servers from the IM Observatory.
  5. Acceptable data privacy statement? IANAL, but you know, #GDPR and so on...
  6. High XMPP compliance? This XMPP Compliance Tester lists many servers.
  7. Cool domain name? and other details like how much server space you have for sharing cat content, how long messages are archived, whether an .onion domain is available, or transports (gateways) to #IRC or other networks are provided.

Useful lists of servers can also be found on Freie Messenger and JabberEs.
