Windows 7: MiniNova Begins Torrent Removal Trial

MiniNova Begins Torrent Removal Trial

Every few years, the BitTorrent world goes through a purging cycle. There were the first BitTorrent communities such as Donkax.com, Turok.info, ByteMonsoon.com and Torrentse.cx that were among the first to introduce users to the BitTorrent experience. These communities were whisked away, only to usher in a new community under the flags of The Pirate Bay, MiniNova, isoHunt, TorrentSpy, Demonoid and OinK.

As it currently stands, this current community is in mortal danger of repeating history. OinK has already been taken offline, while Demonoid has been chased halfway around the globe, losing a lot of its once mighty 3 million-peer population. TorrentSpy lost a monumental case to the MPAA, enduring a $110 million dollar judgment which never actually got to trial; instead the judge in the case granted the movie industry a resounding victory because the court found that TorrentSpy had destroyed evidence in the pretrial period.

Now we're left with The Pirate Bay, MiniNova, and isoHunt - and all three are facing serious confrontations with the entertainment industry. The Pirate Bay has already lost its case in Sweden, and faces another potential showdown in Italy. isoHunt is preparing its case in Canada against the CRIA (Canadian Recording Industry Association), which is set to begin as early as this summer. MiniNova is also gearing up against its own copyright foe, the Dutch copyright trade group BREIN. The current BitTorrent community is in a state of flux, and perhaps mortally wounded. And community members may find that news from MiniNova this morning isn't particularly encouraging.

Hi there
maybe we should host all these. Our Banks are bust so no court case decision would EVER get even a single eurocent -- all we could do is send them back home with shiploads of stinking fish.

I think currently even Zimbabwe has more money -- actually that could also be an interesting country to host these in -- nobody would even THINK of attempting a court case there -- in any case certain Politicians like shopping in Harrods etc etc.

P2P is here to stay in one form or another -- all this will do is drive it underground.

At least with "Open Torrents" there's a certain bit of safety in that dubious torrents can be publicised.

In the final analysis there's always the old fashioned "Sneaker net".

You have something -- encrypt it with a DES key and email it . I receive it decrypt it and send it on.

Also even the Federal Bureau of Incompetants (FBI) with their HUGE resources can't decrypt something that the old WWII spies knew about -- use a 1-time pad.

P2P might get more fiddly "but it ain't goin to disappear").

And to these courts "Go and make a sexual move with a Duck".

Incidentally to those who are interested in the 1-time pad encryption method
here's the WIKI explanation. You can follow further links .

One-time pad - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It really IS unbreakable unless the recipient has the One time pad -- this can easily be transmitted to the proper receiver by relatively untraceable methods such as "In the Pub", by Snail mail etc etc.

Cheers
