Type of site
|Current status||inactive (threatened by FAP)|
Wikisubtitles is a Spanish wiki site that holds fan created free subtitle files for various movies (not the actual movie files) created for foreign, deaf, and other peoples. It is free and non-profit.
On May 19, 2008, FAP (the Spanish Anti-Piracy Federation) sent a cease and desist letter, citing copyright reasons, despite the site being non-profit, and only carrying text subtitles of the movies. 
In addition to wikisubtitles, there are many clones of the site using similar coding. They include http://www.subswiki.com/ , http://hispanosubs.com.ar (inactive), http://notabenoid.com/translate/films/ (inactive), http://www.subtitulos.es (inactive), http://tusubtitulo.com/ and others.
