The Fall Of Mininova

The Fall Of Mininova

Added: Thursday, November 26th, 2009
Category: Recent Headlines Involving File Sharing > Current Events
Tags:ET, Extra Torrent, Mininova, Tracker, Torrent, index, .torrent, site, extratorrent.com, mininova.org
As some of you have heard, the infamous Mininova is now under extreme pressure and given up the good fight. A site once respected, just like The Pirate Bay, has given in. We cannot allow this to end our cause to promote file sharing globally! Just in time, to the rescue, the ET tracker has prevailed and guarantees all it's peers WE WILL NOT FAIL!

Goodbye Mininova

I personally am willing to stand up for the right to promote peer to peer file sharing across the world. This is my stance on the issue regardless of any index or torrent tracker and their legal problems! My guns are blazing and I'm ready to bring the world the message that sharing is caring!

Just a few miles across the web, another respected site, Mininova, after years of intense scrutiny, lawsuits, unjust court proceedings, content filtering, mediated access, and other forms of legal battles, have finally ended the uploading, seeding, leeching, and allowing of copyrighted materials all together.

Mininova's blog post today stated the following:
Mininova wrote:

Hi all,

Today is an important day in the history of Mininova. From now on, we are limiting Mininova.org to our Content Distribution service. By doing so, we comply with the ruling of the Court of Utrecht of last August.

Unfortunately the court ruling leaves us no other option than to take our platform offline, except for the Content Distribution service. According to the verdict (Dutch link) we have to prevent uploads of torrents to Mininova that refer to certain titles or to similar-looking titles. We’ve been testing some filtering systems the last couple of months, but we found that it’s neither technically nor operationally possible to implement a 100% working filter system. Therefore, we decided that the only option is to limit Mininova to Content Distribution torrents from now on. We are still considering an appeal at this moment.

We launched our Content Distribution service in 2007. This service allows producers and artists to easily publish and distribute their content for free through Mininova. The launch of Content Distribution has proven to be a success. Countless content owners have used Content Distribution to distribute their content (e.g. albums and documentaries) for free to millions of users. For example, the Dutch band Silence is Sexy released their complete album on Mininova and received the Interactive Award 2009 for doing so. The Dutch television broadcaster VPRO decided to start using Content Distribution in 2009 in order to distribute documentaries.

We would like to thank you for your support. Especially everyone that contributed to Mininova receives a big “thank you!” for the effort! We hope to keep welcoming you on Mininova and our other projects (e.g. Snotr, Dispostable).

Thanks! The Mininova staff

As sad as I am to hear this, seeing as even though Extra Torrent has been my home since the beginning of my rise in the torrent world of file sharing, I still dumped all my torrents to Mininova. Mininova allowed such a broad range of peers to find releases by our Extra Torrent encoders, and others across the globe. It was a HUGE part of the torrent world. Today we have lost that part of our soul. Mininova is gone, but not forgotten.

I am also shocked. Shocked that such another monolithic group such as the Mininova staff have allowed themselves to lose the war. I would like to say, thank you, to Mininova. For years it did it's part, and fought the good fight. It brought many from it's site here to ET, such as great releasers and great peers.

Remember though, Extra Torrent is not going anywhere. We host no copyrighted files on our servers, we are strong, we are wise, and we will prevail. We have our exclusive release groups, our friends from around the torrent world who all release here (thank you), and we have a dedicated community whom are always willing to push the envelope further.

We welcome now anyone who have lost their home of Mininova, into our doors. We are open-armed and prepared to take on the peers from across the globe. Sharing is what we do, and we do it well. I ask each of you, to upload a .torrent file to Mininova, including only a .txt file. In that .txt file, tell their peers about ET. Let them flood the gates of ET, where we are standing with uniforms ready, and prepared to help all the displaced peers.

Extra Torrent welcomes Mininova survivors, and hopes they find our humble home a great replacement. We have much to offer the world, and will continue to attempt to promote peer to peer file sharing via the bittorrent protocol until the end of time. Welcome everyone, and goodbye, and good wishes to Mininova. Rest In Peace.

SnakeyB avatarI started out years ago with Ares, then switched to mininova, then here to ET. I can honestly say that ET is the only place that is truly a community. I still went to Mininova for my TV downloads but got everything else from ET. If we truly want to receive the huge group from miniova maybe some improvements for the TV area could be implemented. Please do not take this as a complaint (as it is not), Just trying to offer some helpful thoughts.

Sgt_Simple avatarI ve been a silent sharing is caring user for years i have seen lots of sites come and go 1 dies 2 more rise but i have to say this is a big shame
i hate to say it but money is power and aslong as that remains the way of the world we as a species will suffer under the trinary of the rich i cant see how they keep winning
they must be breaking the law to get the infomation they need to stop us lets
use the law againsts them for once they got to be breaching our human rights if some toad can brake into my home i deck him and then i get sued how can we not take advantage of a mess up justice system like that
whatever happened to an englishmans home is his castle its a sad world we live in and it wil only get worse how can we say we live in the free world when we have to pay for everything atleast twice and even then we still dont own it when we cant share our belongings with our fellow humans when people in power make the population powerless i foresee dangerous times ahead when we as a species rise up and take back when they have taken from us our freedom

oneanight avatarRe: Mininova a very sad day. And that is being very polite, my heart goes out to all the good uploader's who took the time in Preparing Good Torrents for people to enjoy..

It's funny you mention a text file I was thinking about including one anyway I've always been in the habit of including one for demonoid so to add another one or two to promote extratorrent will not be a problem. I haven't been a member for long but I have had a lot of support so if you're reading this sign up..

No avatarI'd like to thank the community of ET for accepting former Mininova users with open arms. Secondly, the people who uploaded movies at mininova, are they gonna have to change their names completely? I'm so used to mininova but looking around and like what i see here. Also, is the $5 to be VIP monthly or just a one-time payment?

RIP Mininova.

MarcusVenture avatarI hope ET's servers are strong because there is gonna be a BUNCH of folks drifting this way VERY soon! As sad as it is for mininova to die I think this will be a KEY moment for ET to take the torrent scene and run with it. I left mininova months ago after I got a virus from its web served ads...TWICE. Second one was so nasty it locked down my pc and demanded MONEY to unlock it! It was almost funny and I was thankful I keep my OS clean of files I want to keep saved by using external drives. RIP, mininova. You were well loved.


LONG LIVE ET!

Qu137Ch405 avatarAlthough the fall of any P2P site, especially a torrent site, is sad and IMHO unjust, I have to say that one of the primary reasons why I left Mininova a couple of years ago (and TPB even before that) was because those kind of sites became hotbeds for virus-tainted files and fake torrents.

Welcome, former members of Mininova. You all are wonderful additions to the ET family and I'm sure you will find, as I did, the Members and Staff here extremely friendly, helpful and gracious.

Please understand that, with the influx of new members from your former site, our Staff wil have their hands full. Use our chatbox and PM systems to ask relevant questions to specific Members.

And help us keep our site - our home - clean. With so many new members, it is up to all of us to watch over each other, and keep the new torrents monitored for fakes and viruses. Report the torrent right away (accurately and without abuse or prejudice) so we can all enjoy what we are all here to share.

MarcusVenture avatarI am so GLAD to see so many former mininova folks have found ET to soon. ET is a GREAT place to be and has the BEST community in file sharing PERIOD! The people here are nice and friendly and VERY helpful, unlike many other sites that can be snobbish and standoffish power trippers.

ET also has the BEST rippers on the scene. It would take me too long to name them all but they are wonderful! The seedboxes offer up TREMENDOUS speeds too. Most new torrents fly! You will see! Enjoy it and remember to share it! lol

I also see ET has listened to some of the new mininova people and has added a quick link for TV shows on the front page. This will make ET PERFECTO!

Let have fun peeps and LONG LIVE ET!!!

No avatarI suppose I am just being a pessimist here but someone has to be... To me, this is just foreboding the inevitable. Every single major torrent/tracker site that has met the same fate has said the same things that the guys on ET are saying: "We won't be subject to this legal pressure". "We will fight it." "We will not shut down." Yada yada yada.... Yet, look at how many over the last year or so have fallen. I wish and hope for the best for ET, but I see it happening to them as well eventually. I hope for ET's sake, our sake and the fate of file-sharing, free internet, non-censorship, ect... that ET doesn't fall into the same trap all the other large sites have in the past. I apologize for being the pessimist here, but you all have to be wondering the same thing in the back of your mind. I do hope for the best for ET and all the other tracker/torrent sites that are still up! A lot rests on these guys shoulders... And, I welcome comments and feedback. I am very interested in hearing other peoples concerns about this. Feel free to comment and message me!

No avatarET will not buckle nor fail we will fight. Don't every think we will cave in like the rest, because we won't. You cannot win a war against something as wise as ET. First they have to find us, which is impossible when we have servers in outer space!

420bmxboy420 avatarET is way better than MN, jus the structure of it, and theres no bullshit fake torrents all over the place, yet, knock on wood, but realisticlly, its only a matter of time before this site is pounded into the ground, its inevitable. Spammers and fakes are also inevitable, i dont see how your going to get them all, but if this is supposed to be some torrent/tracker site on crack, then i guess you got your bases covered and a whole lotta money for lawyers in the immediate future, knock on wood. PROPS to yous and i will always seed

No avatarJust too say that obscene had a great comment there about the law and freedom. I think we are all overlooking the real fear that is behind the persecution of torrent sites. We share here. If we all took this sharing community one step further over the internet we threaten the IMF, the reserve crooks of America, oops I ment federal reserves, and the barons of war that make the trillions of dollars and always will because of the last two world wars and the chokehold that they have on consumer products, governments and education systems. If we stand and fight, and not for too long either without a shot fired a worldwide coup of peace begins. Long live your ideal obscene, Long live your site! Sharing is caring!!

Boomer avatarI'm a former member of Mininova, and it was a great site and easy to use.

I hope that Mininova does well in their new role, and I can see one reason they shut down user torrents. If they didn't and politicians made them turn their servers off, that would hurt their Content Distribution program torrents.

No avatarfirst of all i want to let MININOVA how much we gonna miss it, it was my favourite site not only because u download stuff for free but also because of the huge amount of users who always leave useful comments that helped me alot.

AS for EXTRA TORRENTS i guess it's of no less quality than MINInoVA if better in some areas.

kbomb09 avatarIm sad to see this happen on a free global internet that brings the world closer together through file sharing.Today the world got a little futher away with the loss of mini nova.If this keeps happening it threatens the internet itself. the internet is sharing globally. Remember whoever write these laws if you keep going there will not be an internet. Somethings are better left to the people of the WORLD. Hence HACK THE PLANET.
