Dude could afford to pay $110 million in settlement?  Sounds like he was profiting quite well from promoting piracy.
 
2013-10-18 10:29:40 AM
Yeah, I had no idea he was making that kind of money from it.

That site was junk anyway and the searches usually turned up torrents first created in 1943 that had zero seeds and 4 peers uploading at dialup speed..

In other news, say hello to the brand new startup site: isosearch.ck.

/Not a real site, as far as I know

No he can't.  Read the article.  They say at most the company or whatever has about 5 mil.

The sad thing is there is no way it ever cost the MPAA $110 million in loss of licenses to see their product. It wasn't going to be paid for anyway and at best it might save them a few dollars here and there. At worse, they just piss off the people who bought it anyway.

Hasn't isoHunt been shut off from the US for a while now anyway? I haven't even gone to the site in years.

Don't Pirate. Bay your files legally.

Being ordered to pay something, doesn't necessarily mean you can afford to pay it.

Unless you sort the results by age, seeds or leechers, which takes one click.

nope.  this is it.

sad day.  I guess the DMCA flailing will continue through a few more cases that started years ago.  The industry has mostly lost and they know it, but for the cases already in action, they all have to go through to their conclusions because no one will admit defeat.

If I recall correctly, Isohunt tried to be respectful of takedown requests, but the MPAA refused to follow their takedown form, merely demanding that everything be removed.  Iso also had taken steps to work with indie releases, and open source groups to legitimize themselves as a place to find public domain torrents.

I'd not gone to the site in years. Used to be it was my go-to, but over time it became harder to find what I needed, or at least quality over quantity. Pirate Bay had long been my 2nd or 3rd choice, but nowadays I use them as my primary.

I cannot confirm or deny that I use regular message board type sites for my links to sharing websites and use something to download from them quickly without premium access. Once again, I cannot confirm or deny what I wrote above.

/Heya NSA/FBI/CIA/MPAA/RIAA... nothing to see here...

Oh damn. I had no idea they had their new service up and running. Don't suppose they were able to keep people's old username and logins?

I wasn't the one wondering for obscure albums. I used to use demonoid for shows I never got around to watching when they were on the air and aren't on netflix or hulu.

I hope you're using a VPN or Seedbox.. Torrenting from Piratebay on your home PC without a VPN is like sticking your dick in a box of used needles.

People use public torrent sites?  Get a seedbox, an invite, and a clue.
