Demonoid, the very popular torrent tracker, has allegedly been taken down by CRIA (Canadian Recording Industry Association) as users have noticed that both the tracker and the website have been down for more than 24 hours.

Although Demonoid and CRIA have yet to deny or confirm the reports it is definitely a possibility that Demonoid's new Canadian ISP shut the site down after being pressured by CRIA. Recently, the ISP said it would pull the plug on Demonoid if it received complaints.

This would be the second time in recent memory that Demonoid has had major downtime, the last time being when it was still based in the Netherlands. The Dutch anti-piracy group BREIN asked the web host Leaseweb to take Demonoid down and hand over the admin's personal information but Demonoid relocated to Canada before anything could come of it.

It seems likely now that Demonoid will have to relocate again, or stay offline and be another huge blow to the BitTorrent community.

BREIN however, has been emboldened by small victories and yesterday moved to shut down three more Leaseweb-hosted torrent trackers, Araditracker, BitHQ, and Peerportal which combined have tracked 10,000 torrents. BREIN also said the Leasweb had given up the personal details of all the admins even though the three sites left Leaseweb for hosting elsewhere in Europe.

Tim Kuik of BREIN said “we have the names and addresses of these administrators, so we can get to these people through our contacts abroad.”

BREIN says it intends to force the admins to compensate content owners for "lost revenue" and also to prevent the sites from ever opening again. Of course, the latter has failed, as two of the three sites are already back up and fully functional.

Private Trackers FTW!

damn.. they could wait just 2 more days :s before pulling the plug. Now i'm dl Weeds S02 @ 10kbs x|

btw, private trackers require payment or seeding?
'cause if its seeding, i wanna know one or two :) [i DO seed my downloads at least till 0.50 ratio, tho i don't know if that's enough]

I think most would recommend a minimum of a 1:1 ratio, give back at least as much as you take...

and... 1:1 is a 1.00ratio? (my torrent client is in that form and i don't know much of it)

Yes, mosh, sorry about the confusion - based on your torrent client, I would say that 1.0 would reflect a one to one ratio, whereas .50 would indicated that you uploaded half of what you downloaded...

One thing that is obvious with this Demonoid problem is that all Uploads should be spread out to as many torrent sites as possible. So they are still available some place.

and appears to be correct,a lot of people suffering now not getting what they want

Love this site.
but it would be a nice thing now to have a list of other site trackers so things could be spread around more when we do uploads or re-seeding.

That would be a wise thing to do. I started spreading my anime right away after i read demonoid got busted, its not many thou.
