VPN.ht[3] is an open-source personal VPN service associated with the BitTorrent streaming service Popcorn Time. It supports multiple VPN technologies such as PPTP, L2TP/IPSec, SOCKS5 and OpenVPN.[citation needed]

In 2016, the MPAA successfully obtained an interim injunction, in Canada, against VPN.ht and the online torrent streaming service PopcornTime.io. Further demands asked for both services to be shut down. VPN.ht claimed that it was not subject to Canadian jurisdiction.[4]
