Torrent problems ahead?

World's 'biggest online pirate' faces charges over $1bn of illegal copying

A Ukrainian alleged to be the ringleader of the world’s biggest online piracy site, Kickass Torrents, has been accused of distributing more than $1bn worth of illegally copied films, music and other content.

The US justice department unveiled a criminal complaint against Artem Vaulin, 30, of Kharkiv, Ukraine, who was arrested in Poland on Wednesday and is being sought by US authorities for copyright infringement, money laundering and other charges.

Vaulin is alleged to own Kickass Torrents or KAT, which in recent years has eclipsed Pirate Bay and others to become the world’s biggest source of pirated media.

I realise of course that none of our members would consider downloading from torrents but this may be of interest to visitors

Yes, most Torrent sites are still working – but for how long if the movie industry is determined to force through legislation.

And PLEASE don’t tell us you use Pirate Bay – my conscience would oblige me to report you!

Weird, no problems with PB here (not that I'd dream of using it of course).

Re: Torrent problems ahead?

Never mind the State of Emergency, this is a complete disaster for friends/family/acquaintances who tell me they sometimes use such sites for legal downloads.

Never mind, there are always alternatives you can advise people to use.

Here is a handy comparison between the various market leaders, supplied by those kind and thoughtful people at Wikipedia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compar...tTorrent_sites

It will probably be safe to advise those disappointed people the site will be up and running again, once the owner has been released on bail, that is.

I realise that there are many different Torrents out there but with all the legal pressure against them then will they be able to continue – but the advertising revenue must be very tempting.

BTW as far as I can see all Torrents are working OK in Ukraine except KAT.
