World’s 2nd most popular p2p BitTorrent site, Mininova, today resigned from it’s leading position, saying bye bye to Piracy forever.
Today is an important day in the history of Mininova. From now on, we are limiting Mininova.org to our Content Distribution service. By doing so, we comply with the ruling of the Court of Utrecht of last August. Unfortunately the court ruling leaves us no other option than to take our platform offline, except for the Content Distribution service.
The Lawsuits had been going worldwide to hunt Pirates down. Mininova had been warned by the Court and seems like they accepted the defeat for the good of the industry.
PirateBay, the leader of all pirates, has been able to survive all attempts for shutdown. PirateBay, proved that Pirates are more powerful than a government can reach-out to. Recently, they stopped their Torrent trackers and encourage the use of DHT which make them more anonymous and almost impossible to stop.
