quote from torrentspy.com
'Friends of TorrentSpy,

We have decided on our own, not due to any court order or agreement, to bring the Torrentspy.com 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'

Didn't know we couldn't and theres a couple of threads on torrents at moment and no-one's said anything...

Sorry Mods if we can't!

Thanks for the advice though!

I don't think torrent sites or torrent files are themselves illegal in any way as a lot of files are in the public domain anyway ........... it's just some of the files on the sites are illegal to download if you don't have the original ? So why should the subject be banned ? Prob' relates to discussing the illegal software & files & means of getting it all I suppose.
