Another major torrent site bites the dust...

Hugely popular torrent indexer Mininova has been slapped with a debilitating ruling, in the Netherlands: Within the next three months, the site has to remove all links to infringing torrents, after which it'll be fined 1000 Euros for each one.

Mininova's been working on a copyright filter for a while, but with the stakes so artificially high, it would need to be almost perfect to make operating the site worthwhile. This means that Mininova will either A.) Become the premier torrent indexer for Linux ISOs and public domain FLAC music, or B.) die.*
at least isohunt still lives... and thats based in canada, whew

I don't know how humans existed in times when you had to pay for music. I haven't bought a cd since Everclear - So Much For the Afterglow - like 10 years ago. Paying for music...pfff it's for suckers.

Don't worry about it. Demonoid, and BTJunkie are still going STRONG. To all of you, I advise using To check out like 10 sites at once. Learn what ones you like to check, then do that everytime you want something.

ThePirateBay is back up! doesn't seem to have changed any. and for the time being, mininova is still up. they might be able to drag their copyright suit out for a long time.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?
