Merely authorized publishers are able to upload documents to the site beginning today, but luckily there are a lot of potential replacements and options Bit Torrent customers may flock to.

With and an impressive 175,820,430 close to a thousand pageviews in the last 30-days, Mininova set a document that they’ll be unable to break in the long run. Last July a Dutch court ruled that Mininova had to remove all links to ‘infringing’ documents, with fatal consequences.

This transfer resulted in the removal of more than a million torrents , many which weren’t infringing any copyrights in any way.
