Several Torrent sites have been targeted by the City of London Police. The registrars of major Torrent sites have been asked to cancel their domains. The fact that these sites will lose their domains without any explanation is a sign of highhanded behavior by the law.

Torrent Sites Lose Domains Due to UK Police Order

Sometimes the punishment doesn’t seem to fit the crime. At least, this was the case with many Torrent sites whose registrars got a notice from the City of London Police telling them to annul their domains. The harsh words of the letter and the lack of a rationale for this writ of law prove that in today’s postmodern times anything goes.

Among the sites that have faced suspension can be included: SumoTorrents, MisterTorrent and ExtraTorrent. The whole issue actually revolves around the UK Police’s war on piracy. While up until now the fight was being pursued halfheartedly, suddenly it has acquired a momentum of its own. The pinpointing of rights-holders has trebled the pressure on these sites. 

The letters received by the registrars warned that what they were doing was a criminal activity. Copyright issues were at stake here. The fact that the founders of these sites can be tried in the courts for intellectual theft has long lasting consequences.

They could be put behind bars or fined a hefty sum for their illegal activities. And the funny thing was that no further elucidation of the issue took place. The letter merely gives orders to these domains to be shut off by the registrars. It seems the law needs bolstering before it can start bullying.

The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
