OpenBitTorrent Tracker is Said to be Online Again

OpenBitTorrent disappeared only a couple of weeks ago, when its hosting company was forced to shut it down by a court ruling in favor of Hollywood. Now the largest BitTorrent tracker on the Internet surfaces again from a new host, providing torrents as usual.

OpenBitTorrent was just one in the list of many BitTorrent websites that have been targeted by the entertainment industry in the last couple of years. Most of the rulings against trackers were made in favor of the rights owners. Spain was the only exception to find BitTorrent trackers operating within the pale of laws.

In fact, OpenBitTorrent was an unexpected target among BitTorrent-related sites, because the tracker didn’t either link to any torrent files or torrent search engine, or host the content, thus hardly serving a facilitator for torrent users in copyright infringement terms, as opposed to many BitTorrent clients.

Notwithstanding this obvious non-infringing nature, the Swedish Court of Appeals handed out a decision against OpenBitTorrent last month. In terms of the case initiated by Hollywood film studios, the Court issued an injunction to the BitTorrent tracker’s hosting provider Portlane, forcing it to cancel the Internet access to OpenBitTorrent.

OpenBitTorrent was shut down under this decision and started looking for another provider to restore the tracker and go on coordinating downloads of millions of people using the service daily. And it is said to finally have found a new hosting, run by a Spanish company, enabling over 20 million peers and 200,000 torrents to return to the tracker and continue its operations as if nothing happened.

OpenBitTorrent, along with PublicBitTorrent, can be considered the world’s biggest BitTorrent tracker website, running on the Opentracker software. The sites generally manage the communications of up to 30 million BitTorrent users who might be glad to see OpenBitTorrent having been revived. However, most of its users might have never noticed it had disappeared for a while. This is because the majority of today’s torrents provide several backup trackers that can be used if one of them goes down. Moreover, even if all the trackers go down, the user may not suffer, as enabled DHT will ensure the downloads keep working.

poppedtart avatarrunning any sort of tracker is illegal apparently. Blizzard will be sued eventually I am sure since they use torrent technologies to distribute patches and their game.
