TorrentSpy langenud

Viimasel aastal maailma populaarseimaks torrenti saidiks kerkinud TorrentSpy on alates 24. märtsis suletud. Kodulehel olevast selgitavast tekstist võib välja lugeda allaandmist kohtuhaamrile.

Friends of TorrentSpy,

We have decided on our own, not due to any court order or agreement, to bring the search engine to an end and thus we permanently closed down worldwide on March 24, 2008.

The legal climate in the USA for copyright, privacy of search requests, and links to torrent files in search results is simply too hostile. We spent the last two years, and hundreds of thousands of dollars, defending the rights of our users and ourselves.

Ultimately the Court demanded actions that in our view were inconsistent with our privacy policy, traditional court rules, and International law; therefore, we now feel compelled to provide the ultimate method of privacy protection for our users - permanent shutdown.

It was a wild ride,

The TorrentSpy Team

Kohtuskäigud Motion Picture Association of America'ga (MPAA) algasid juba 2006. aastal ning kogu selle aja on seaduseesindajate poolt TorrentSpy tegijaid ja torrenti otsingumootori kasutajaid ahistatud.
