Largest Meta-search engine Torrent shuts down Says Farewell : Shocked!Traditional Poland based torrent meta-search website Torrentz.eu has lifted its fundamental functionality, completely shutting down the main gateway for finding criminal stuff on the web.
According to a report on the website, which notes to itself in the past tense: Torrentz was a free, and fast and powerful meta-search engine connecting events from dozens of search engines.
Torrentz will forever love you. Farewell.” A click on the search box currently redirects to a pop-up ad from Alibaba.
While, Founded in 2003, Torrentz has been a permanent part of the torrent fellowship for over 13 years. With millions of visitants daily , the website grew out to become one of the several visited torrent sites.
However today this rule ends, as the traditional meta-search engine has announced its shutdown. The end of Torrentz comes following the world’s biggest torrent site KickAssTorrents.
And It was shut down by the feds in July. Also The owner of KickAssTorrents, 30-year-old Ukrainian Artem Vaulin was arrested in the Poland nation and filled with criminal copyright violation.
Torrentz itself never more received any torrent files although did have a takedown system in position, providing copyright holders to take down violating links.
Not all rightsholders were happy with the site, though. Both RIAA and MPAA have announced the site to the U.S. Committee in modern years, which repeatedly placed it its annual “Out-of-Cycle Review of Famous Markets.”
With Torrentz.eu and KickassTorrents both shutting down, the torrent community dissipated two of the biggest websites in a period of three weeks.
Established a few weeks before The Pirate Bay, Torrentz was one of the greatest torrent websites still approximately.
When Torrentz first came online the website was hosting torrent lists, however, it quickly reinvented itself as a meta-search engine, the largest of its class.
