I just posted the article isoHunt gets shutdown by ISP and moves to Canada.

isoHunt, a fairly popular BitTorrent website has been shutdown by its ISP without warning. The website which was hosted in the US has since moved to a Canadian ISP where they expect to return…

I MISS ISOHUNT :c

all I can say if they are going after sites that specialize in this stuff, why not hit the search engines as well. I can just as easily google for a torrent as I can use any of these sites. And frankly they are not holding the files so how can they be held responsible. All they are is indexing nothing more really. Would be like holding google responsible for having hate speech or kiddy porn come up through a search.

Exactly ^ And what about torrent programs? They are just as responsible as the sites are. Why not go after them? MPAA are a bunch of F***wits.

I am so sad. That was my entertainment.

ISO hunt is still online and running up to this day, I prefer ISOhunt over other torrent sites as they are the only site that keep the site clean of nasties like trojains and do a great job maintaing the site.

Though its a illegal operation, It all revolves around [I]digital[/I] media obviously, I still feel that ever since tapes went to cd’s and vhs went to dvd disks, the computers can read the disks, which results in copying them onto the pc and uploading them for downloading online, The RIAA and the Government are wasting their time trying to shut down these such sites as this is an issue and will always be an issue unless they devise a new plan to prevent PC’s from ripping such media…

Though, I still believe that we Should pay for movies since the actors and producers spend billions to produce the film, when most don;t recieve half the revenue they put into the film, so I can see a point where file-sharing copy-righted movies could be illegal, however, music, the artist make millions from each album they market, and drive $100k cars and live in billion dollar homes. They don;t need any more money, why not pirate their music, besides, the music files are soo small, it doesn’t take much to transfer to the net to someone else’s pc.

I don;t know, I don;t use file sharing sites at all unless I am searching for a mp3 file, but this is just my opinion and maybe other feel the same or indifferent as I do…

i think it is unfair that isohunt has been treated that way. isohunt doesnt even provide trackers
