Russian National Torrent Tracker Shut Down

Prosecutors have closed down the Torrents.ru website this Thursday alleging most popular file sharing website in Russia of violating intellectual property rights.

The registrar of Torrents.ru domain “Ru-Center” has blocked the website right after the request to do that made by Investigative Committee – its Moscow's Chertanovsky branch to be exact.

An announcement found on the “Ru-Center” website says that the domain has been blocked since a criminal proceeding against Torrents.ru has been launched by prosecutors. The tracker website is said to be suspected of breaching a particular article of the Criminal Code, which allows two years in prison punishment for violating the intellectual property rights.

As a spokesman for “Ru-Center” Andrei Vorobyov says, they have already taken several dozen websites offline previously – for extremism or pornography, but that would be the first time they are doing this for violating the intellectual property rights. He referred to an opposition news site Ingushetia.ru, which was accused of inciting interethnic hatred in 2007, as the bright example of a domain being taken offline after the orders from the authorities.

BitTorrent trackers support file sharing, this including music, games, TV programs and films, among numerous users by connecting them with thousands of other computers that simultaneously transfer the wanted file to the computer of the downloader.

Torrents.ru took the news easy this Thursday night, announced a new address for their service and instructed users on how they can switch over to new domain.

The statement on the website says that users hoping to go on sharing files simply have to indicate another tracker (tracker is a server connecting downloaders with uploaders – users that have the wanted file) or just renew the torrent file from the site's new domain – Rutracker.org.

Users of this service began circulating a petition to Russia’s President Dmitry Medvedev on the forum of the website on the same Thursday night, appealing him to resume the work of the website and proceed against the investigators, who are said to overstep their authority and offend over 4 million active users.

Torrents.ru is Russia's first-string torrent service, Alexa Rank the 13th most often visited site in the .ru zone domain. Unfortunately, the Investigative Committee can’t be reached for comment since Thursday.

Yet another addition to sad history of torrent world. Those bastards. >:( First the MNova and now this. What next? I hope ET and TPB stays alive. As much as I hate to admit it, they're getting good at this.
