A success and more hate from us had been achieved by the evil anti-piracy group, Bescherming Rechten Entertainment Industrie Nederland (BREIN) when last year, Mininova was caused to cease operating. But its just seems to be a very small news in front of the recent happening that BRIEN, a Netherlands-based group, which is working in the interest of the MPAA and their movie studios partners, folded 393 BitTorrent sites in the year 2009. I will let you all know about mindfreaking evil group “BREIN” up to deep down under its roots. Previously, BREIN terrorized and shut down Dutch eDonkey network 2000 link giant ShareConnector in December 2004. BRIEN is the enemy of all the torrent sites too.Extra Torrent as every one else also don't like BRIEN.If it would be in our hands then we would have shut down BRIEN itself a long time ago. But unfortunately, its not.
BRIEN is said to be a unique bundling of forces of the entire entertainment industry in the fight against Intellectual Property theft. It serve and protect authors, artists, producers and distributors of creative entertainment product against commercially significant theft of copyright and neighboring rights.It develops anti-piracy policy and directs and co-ordinates the fight against piracy,” as stated by their official site.
Mininova, a 10 billion torrent owner served to the file-sharing world, was dragged in courts and all the things went only and only against it, had finally gave up everything and accepted the order of removing all of their torrents. BRIEN, the evil group, the enemy, must be celebrating this big success over Mininova and having killed all the desires of sharing. And after its fall, the survivors started coming to Extra Torrent who gave them their space here and gave them their deserving chances to make their new starts after the fall of their own place.
Moreover, famous “The Pirate Bay” has also been assassinated by the Dutch Anti-Piracy group, the same way as done with Mininova. An order has been given to “The Pirate Bay” that “they have to remove a list of torrents which are linked to copyrighted works by 1st Mrach 2010”, reported a website.
Either its about “The Pirate Bay” or “Mininova”, both of them grasped a great attention in the world of press.
BRIEN released a major calculation that they killed up 615 “illegal sites” in which more than half of them were BitTorrent sites.
A site, Torrent Vault is one of them but its still being operated via Sweden. An estimation made by BRIEN declared that 393 were the BitTorrent sites that they assassinated.
BRIEN didn’t stopped there, even, 35 eD2K servers, 38 websites that stream videos and 14 Usenet portals/NZB sites were killed too.
Everything that’s happening with the BitTorrent world is going beyond the limits. How big this shut down stuff would grow? Is there any way to stop it? After all, the file-sharing world means a lot to our lives and it’s a beautiful world that we don’t wanna leave.Are you with me against BRIEN? Let’s stop it.
But one things that has always been cleared that none could ever even touch Extra Torrent for any bad cause. We are right here continuing our work and it’s gonna last forever. No copyrighted files have been hosted here on ET ever. We are becoming stronger day by day and stepping up the top places. We have always thought and even tried our best of pushing the site to its best and cherishing it more than ever. Extra Torrent is a place to be and always will. Extra Torrent Rocks!

|Thanks EMUworld, I have always felt that BRIEN was by far the worst over funded, over paid and completely over zealous of the anti P2P/torrent groups. They not only have the entertainment industry backing them but also the politicians and court systems. Any single group that has that much power is scary no matter what there mandate is. It is a little to much New World Order for my liking.|

|In my opinion ET is very similar to Isohunt. Luckily, it doesn't seem that ET has yet to deal with the lawsuits that Isohunt has. I don't know why this is but I am not complaining. Both are indexing sites that do not host actual torrents. Unfortunately, Brien's work does not exist because of a good/evil conflict. They aren't there because they feel it is the right thing to do. They are there for money and greed. If it was just a matter of right and wrong they could be debated and possibly persuaded into believing that art and information should be free to appreciate and share. As long as the MPAA and other studio partners pay them and they are having success, they will be any torrenters enemy. Good story, I am curious to how many have popped up since the 393 have been killed.|
|I don't know how many have poped up, but there are several new small sites I use. They limit the amount of uploaders though. I do think sadly extratorrent could be on their radar soon as it is growing in popularity. In 10 years these types of sites may not even exist any more. Some people think this won't happen, but if they wanted to put an end to it once and for all they could. Of coarse there would still be small forum sites where you have to know some one to get in. We should all enjoy it while it last. I don't know what I would do with out bittorrent sites. I haven't even got over the shock of the day I went to my old favorite site mininova to see what was uploaded for the day, only to find out it didn't exist as I once knew it. That was a very bad day for us all. R.I.P mininova. Long live extratorrent and demonoid! Don't like the virus bay or virusohunt any way. Just by looking on those site I almost get a virus|

|nice EMuworld, i dont think people can stop brein for shutting torrentsites down, maby they will even get support from a other entertainment industry, bur they will never shutdown ET, but i think if ET really get bigger and popular and many people use ET, then it can be that they will also want to shutdown ET, like a mininova it was really big and popular and there was like millions of torrents there, that it also get shutdown.|
|Pirate Everything!!!!! F&ck BRIEN!!!!|
|Keep up the good work, ET has become my PRIMARY P2P site. Thanks!!|
|OOPS!! Forgot to add F&ck BRIEN!!|

|i agree, F*CK BRIEN|
|Every stupid ignorant species eventually smells its own extinction, BRIEN is no different. the head of the snake is growing old and toothless. BRIEN is a walking violation of nature and should be excised like a foul smelling, fluid seeping cancerous growth. Soon perhaps, soon.|
|i was gonna only download one film tonight,but after reading this,im now gonna download five..f*ck em|
|I'm with this guy ^|
|Before BREIN comes too close to shutting everything down, if that will ever happen. I am sure there will be a massive pirate uprising.|
|i am with u on this may these guys burn in hell for their never ending greed ...i wish ET a long life so we all can gather n share with each other ...thats what love is all about ..sharing ...|

|Oh to be able to hack into BREIN and really F&ck 'em over. Long live ET and the Pirates who sail with her.|
|love the sales pitch at the end :)... very interesting reading that.. they takedown 1 and it's replaced by 2.. come 1st March will be very interesting to see what happens to 'The Piratebay'|
it was bad enough peeps including myself had to run around and jump from site to site after Mininova crashed... are we gonna see it again with TPB... I Wonder!

|Good to Know! Thanks Sam|
I'm getting sick of the phrase "Intellectual Property "
The New Ford can copy/rip CD's to a internal hard drive - OH Sh*t (can I borrow that CD for a minute? LOL) Should we send the RIAA after Ford Motor Co??
B.T.W. Those TPB guys served 1 year in jail and were ordered to pay millions (which they don't have - LOL)
and that site is now operated by "others".
My thought is much the same as the rest, "F-Off BREIN". I'll have to double my current share ratio to make sure we balance out the B.S. being fed to us by those "Ass Clowns"
ET IS the place to be - ROCK ON!!!!
|LONG LIVE ET!!!|
ALL HAIL ET!!!

|Umm... Well, I agree, We shall never be stopped... Napster started it all... the invention of P2P.... Torrents were the answer to the laws enacted to stop P2P copyright sharing... And I do believe Frostwire and Limewire still operate today like Napster did back in the day.... |
So, as they evolve to stop BitTorrents, so some other inovative individual will figure out a way to continue on and evolve us as well....

|I disagree with leekiller. I read the article and it has a good point that Brien is out to get torrent sites. BUT No matter how many laws they pass or how many ways they CHOKE the life out of people and ideas, No matter how they stamp and grind us into the ground, they will never ever defeat the pirates because in this case pirates are in the right. Pirates are FREEDOM fighters and you can not defeat a freedom fighter. EVER|

|Excuse me, but Freck Brein.|

|The reason that ET is alive is because Brein was only focussed on the big torrent sites. Now after shutting down Piratebay (wich is still available in the Netherlands) and Mininova they stopped with hunting torrent sites and started focussing to get rid of usenetgroups.|
|thanks EMU what a great way to keep in touch with the simple reality, that the big rollers will always push us down, burucrats and politicians have found that war over petroleum is by far to costly, so now lets bring the 3 strike rule and lets ammend legislations, allow so called BRIEN whatever they believe is piracy ,simply in order to get more money out of the working tax payers!!!! now on onother note "No copyrighted files have been hosted here on ET ever." i must add that recently after downloading from ET i received a e-mail from my IP provider stating that a copyright holder BayTSP, Inc. had reported a uploading material via my bittorrent protocol for Saw VI from my allocated service, now if such is here, in Australia how soon or how far does the wonderful world of bitorrent is gonna last? like all others have stated this is the best site we have, and as it narrows down we all must find ways to keep it alive.|
Where there is a will there is a Way!!!
|hammer time.......cant touch this|
|Long before there were torrent sites, there were warez sites and before broadband cable connections offering high speed internet access there was ........well there was CRAP.....56k blah blah blah. People had to pay for software, they had to pay for movies there was no real sharing. I mean if you bought a movie and lent it to a friend yeah but then there weren't computers fast enough, complex enough or sophisticated enough to copy a dvd or cd, there was no software to help you do it.|
Back then Comcast and a few others had the ball tightly in their grasp. I've been around long enough to see things change, grow and evolve in all sorts of way. I was around in the heyday of Napster and had a go at limewire to then it was warez sites and direct downloads at incredibly slow speeds searching for software, cracks patches and serials. Then came high speed cable access and torrent sites and fast transmission speeds.
I've seen these sites all come and go, it would be incredibly naive and arrogant for anyone to believe they were beyond the reach of such entities as BREIN or entities like it. To believe one is untouchable, invincible is short sighted and imho extremely dangerous. I am sure that The Pirate Bay and Mininova and others before them suffered from the same arrogance, grandiosity at some point and look at them now!
Easy to laugh and consider ones self superior and somehow above it all but I think humility is important if one is to survive lest one draw a very large target on ones back. You want people to come after you start shouting about how great you are, how big you are, how powerful you plan to be, how you can't or won't be shut down.....Go ahead shout it louder!
"Where There's A Will, There's A Way".....you think the Pirate Bay or MiniNova didn't try everything, exhaust every penny, consult every attorney? You think MiniNova didn't have the will to find a way? Seriously if there's no way, there's no way! Plain and simple!
I'm a Dutch Guy and Brein is f*cking every one.
But sometimes The pirates strikes back.

|This is an awesome site and i hope it never closes down|
|You figure after almost 15 years of trying to stop this they would take a hint from the american war on drugs. Piracy will never die they find a new way us hackers and rippers one up them every time.|
|Fu#k Brein, they can suck a dinosaur di#k. In extra torrent we trust.|

|Interesting way to get in some "we are numero uno" advertisement. |
The entire western world 9and probably the rest as well) was built by smugglers and pirates. British and Dutch Indies companies, the American colonies smugglers (Hamilton for one), the Templars and Hospitalers- Corsairs - - - the list goes on and on. All smugglers and pirates.
