Major Torrent sites consider shutting down due to pressure

Raids, arrests, seizures, extraditions and jail time in the file-sharing world hasn’t gone unnoticed by the operators of major BitTorrent sites. Yesterday, the owners of BTjunkie decided to close their site because the stress became too much, and there are others who consider doing the same. While there are still plenty site owners who are determined to continue, doubt and uncertainty are more present than ever before. “There have been talks of shutting our site down, even before BTjunkie did it,” one admin told TorrentFreak on condition of anonymity. The aggressive actions against MegaUpload – site founder Kim Dotcom was raided by an anti-terrorist squad last month – are frequently mentioned as cause for concern. So much so that several people involved with one of the largest torrent sites on the Internet have already dropped out. “A couple guys on the staff decided not to be involved anymore with the site after the MegaUpload incident,” the admin told us. The fact that a German citizen can be arrested in New Zealand upon request from the US authorities signaled that regardless of local laws, people connected to file-sharing sites have become a global target. “It’s turning into a witch hunt. It is worrying,” said the admin.
