    Mininova, the largest torrent site on the Internet, has removed all torrents except those that were uploaded through its content distribution service. Mininova’s founders took the drastic decision after they lost a civil dispute against Dutch anti-piracy outfit BREIN, and were ordered to remove all infringing torrents from the site.

    What's left out the larger public trackers?

    I guess I'm just going to have to wait for another mega-source to pop up now. I'm not part of any good private trackers that will get me TV shows :(

    If anyone has any recommendations or even an invite to throw my way, I'd love to know where I could pick some stuff up. Dexter is coming on in a few days, and I'm not caught up on Venture brothers.

    Don't know why this should surprise anyone, it was only a matter of time before torrent sites got shut down. Will they continue to pop up, possibly, I expect some will move to freenet, and similar locations. The reality is, they have to decentralize, personally the path supernova took with eXeem, is likely to resurface soon.

    Reflecting on it, the more accurate title would be "Mininova Deletes All infringing torrents and enters death rattle"

    TORRENTZAP is another VERY GOOD public service site. I think the battle for number one is between TZ and ET

    Considering the fate of the recent #1's, that might not be a GOOD thing to be. :happysad:
    And wow, all that's left of Mininova is those clips that Mels posted of himself as a bare assed baby on an Elvis rug. :wtf1:

    Actually I see that another so called big PRIVATE site has called it a day after some of its members were arrested and sit in jail right now. This has been a bad week for the BT people, more so for the private peeps ( scenetorrents ) though.... whats next? Is the sky falling?

    Now I am reading through lots of dumb ass comments on torrentfreaks about what is better ... TOPSITES or PRIVATE BT SITES! Not again!! How many times must the dumb, pointless debate be made?

    Now excuse me while I go to Walmart to buy a DVD to rip and freely share to the PUBLIC.

    Hmmmm, the more I try different torrent sites, like FILEPORN and such, the more I find are down today. I find it strange that many many sites have went down all at once. Well I am not sure how many but a few that I know of are not responding. Has there been some MASSIVE attack on the torrent community? Is it nothing? With torrent sites one can never be certain...

    Are YOU worried yet? I doubt it. TorrentZap is Okay!

    Maybe now the economy will have a chance to recover through new sales, after all of the free illegal infringing torrent shit is removed from the internets.

    People will just waste time of free entertainment that is always available online. All entertainment competes with each other, flash games, facebook, youtube are all competitors to the music and movie industry.
