BTjunkie Quit BitTorrent

BTjunkie Quit BitTorrent

Apparently, 2012 started off wrong for a number of BitTorrent giants: part of them left the file-sharing community out of fear, while the rest were seized by American authorities. The trend is true for BTjunkie, one of the largest BitTorrent indexes, as well – the service has now decided to shut down.


Launched almost 7 years ago, BTjunkie has been one of the top websites for more than half a decade. Considering the fact that the service has never been involved into any kind of unauthorized actions, the portal operators decided to keep it that way and shut it down for good. Millions of the service users could now read the message on BTjunkie main page saying that was the end of the line. Site operators admitted that such decision didn’t come easy, but they have decided to voluntarily close down. BTjunkie has been fighting for years for people’s right to communicate, but decided it was now time to move on. The site owners wished their visitors all the best and quit.

During the interview with the industry observers, BTjunkie’s owner admitted that such decision came as a result of the legal actions taken against well-known cyberlocker MegaUpload and BitTorrent tracker The Pirate Bay. However, he thinks that other BitTorrent services may still have a future.

Despite the fact that BTjunkie has never been scoped by rights owners, the United States Trade Representative still took the interest in the website in November 2011. As a result, the Recording Industry Association of America and Motion Picture Association of America listed BTjunkie as a “notorious” website facilitating mass copyright violation. Along with The Pirate Bay, RapidShare, uTorrent and a number of other services, BTjunkie ended up in Google’s blacklist.

Many of the industry experts agree that a rather faulty start 2012 for the technology which brought hundreds of millions of people together could incline one to believe that the entertainment industry isn’t planning to embrace (or at least look for a sound solution in this battle against piracy) progress. Instead, the content industry stubbornly keeps fighting in an already lost battle. The hopes are that one day the industry will also realize that struggling against progress is only a waste of time, money and resources.

RUkiddin avatarThat Sucks! But A Huge thanks to all who contributed torrents,
After Pirate Bay got cleaned, Btjunkie was the only site to still carry those torrents
Btjunkie truly had a crank load of torrents - perhaps it was better to close out than get Seized!
It will be a site well missed in my world,
Score one for the other team
Long live E.T.
Rock ON!

What made BTjunkie unique? It the only site I had seen with a "Safe Search" feature
You could turn off the safe search - Nuf said

Rock ON!
