The Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit of UK made a request to the registrar of the site’s domain to suspend the file sharing website. Prior to this, authorities have been sending out warning letters to Although being the largest torrent site on the Internet, we can just imagine that this isn’t the first time they have received such notice making them ignore the appeal from the police.

    True. They have to do it so the big studios can earn money and give us more quality movies. Think of quality. So let’s not torrent and just give in to the system, buy their DVD’s and just understand that they are doing this to serve us the customers better with better entertainment.

    Ever since Megadownload, the era of torrents might be coming to an end. Cloud might be the next best thing, or is it? In a few years time, manufacturers of consumer electronics will come up ways in making their products unhackable (Vita is just the beginning). Non Pirated DVD & BLU-RAY players? Give it 30 years & all the pirated stores will cease to exist. Jailbreak proof even!

If you can just rewatched your watched movie and if these GENUINE dvd movie makers will replaced your old disc (due to molds and some factors that made your disc unusable) then we don’t need to download that movie again, it’s business even you buy an orig disc you are going to buy it again (double pay).

    Torrents were not the only solution there were some and since direct download was out of source they’re still means other than using torrents.
