Largest Torrent Website in Denmark Voluntarily Shuts Down

Largest Torrent Website in Denmark Voluntarily Shuts Down

NextGen, one of the country's largest websites, announced its closure in order to protect all of its users. The torrent site had been in operation for over 4 years, offering various content including the latest films and TV shows. The private tracker NextGen was the 225th most-visited site in Denmark. However, for reasons the operators didn’t reveal the site has closed its doors. It also set out the notice to more than 40,000 users, which suggested that all was not well. The site administration explained that it was done only for the safety of the users, because during the last few weeks NextGen has attracted much extra attention.

Actually, it is not unusual for websites to shut down without much of an explanation, but the rumors regarding the closure cannot stop. For example, some link it to The Pirate Bay founder Gottfrid Svartholm’s alleged connections to NextGen, as NextGen had dealings with PRQ, a company historically owned by Gottfrid, in the past.

On the other hand, a successful site closed down so quickly not without a reason – some believe that the pressure from the authorities had been mounting for some time. 4 years ago, Danish police arrested then 19-year-old law student Halfdan Timm, suggesting he was the NextGen operator, because he had interviewed an operator of NextGen in-depth, which made the police believe there had been a connection. Later, more information was appearing on the Internet about the operators of the tracker, and they were alleged to earn $200,000 a year from the service. Anonymous critics publicly linked the names of two men to the site.

Carjacker avatarIf the 225th ranked Danish torrent website operators were raking in $200,000 a year from ad revenue and information selling, I wonder what ET site operators make ? lol, bet they make a bundle.

Sammy1968 avatar@Carjacker> Who cares how much they make. That fact that we can download programs/movies/games, etc is a good thing for us poor people.
I do buy games/movies every year. And then there is the fact that ET has the best layout and admins/moderators in the business. I've
talked to some of them from time to time pointing out things that are not right. And they always are willing to help you. It's getting harder and harder to have a site like this. Just be thankful we have one.

Mike_Oxhard avatar@7, or you could get a no contract "burner" smart phone that has a mobile hotspot and lots of 4G data. Pay monthly, buying recharge cards with cash at a conveience store. Then, nobody's name or billing address is ever associated with the phone or any of the IP addresses it connects to. Turn off the phone's GPS location service and add a VPN service (that accepts bitcoin payments) to keep the service provider's nose out of you business and you're golden. Also, dump Google search and use the ixquick search engine, they don't store their user's ip addresses or track user's activities. This gives you security and let's you be virtually anonomous.

Mike_Oxhard avatarOh, if you're really paranoid about you file sharing activities, adding a good seedbox service (that accepts bitcoin payments) to all the above precautions couldn't hurt. Getting back on topic, sorry to hear about NextGen. The MPAA cyber-bullies won't be happy until they are in complete control of all entertainment content on the internet. It's a new frontier for them to excercise their censorship agenda.
