US Authorities Dropped Case Against Torrent Site

US Authorities Dropped Case Against Torrent Site

The Department of Justice seized the Torrent-Finder.com domain 5 years ago, but had a very weak case and decided to return it to the original owner. In the meantime, the FBI revealed that it had helped take down almost 37,500 websites, most of which sold counterfeit goods. Piracy-related sites were among the prime targets, and so was an Egypt-based torrent search engine Torrent-Finder.com, which didn’t host or link to any illegal material. The Department of Justice seized its domain name for copyright infringement 5 years ago, but its operator appealed the seizure, and finally the authorities announced they would drop the case if the site operator complies with takedown requests.

So, the domain was officially released a few days ago and returned to the hands of the original owner, who is currently redirecting it to the torrent section of his new search engine AIO. TorrentFinder’s owner says it was disappointing that it took the authorities 5 years to reach their final decision. Of course, the site’s traffic was hit hard by the seizure, which many other websites may not have survived. However, TorrentFinder didn’t give up, and its successor is still around today.

The site’s operator complains that the entire case was based on inaccuracies and mistakes, with a lot of the evidence being factually incorrect. Moreover, the domain was almost scooped up by the strangers, because the Department of Justice remained sloppy until the end and simply let the domain expire. Fortunately, the site owner expected this to happen and created a backup account to catch the domain if it expired.
