I know by now many of you, if not all, know about mininova closing its doors to public torrents, this is an excerpt from their blog:
Today is an important day in the history of Mininova. From now on, we are limiting Mininova.org to our Content Distribution service. By doing so, we comply with the ruling of the Court of Utrecht of last August.
Unfortunately the court ruling leaves us no other option than to take our platform offline, except for the Content Distribution service.
The Content Distribution service allows producers and artists to easily publish and distribute their content for free, which means you’ll only find music, videos and documentaries these producers want you downloading for free, no more regular torrents and stuff, so good bye mininova, it was good while it lasted :'(
