    MPAA Shuts Down Lokitorrent

    There are websites that provide legal downloads. This is not one of them.

    This website has been permanently shut down by court order because it facilitates the illegal downloading of copyrighted motion pictures. The illegal downloading of motion pictures robs thousands of honest, hard-working people of their livelihood, and stifles creativity. Illegally downloading movies from sites such as these without proper authorization violates the law, is theft, and is not anonymous. Stealing movies leaves a trail. The only way not to get caught is to stop.

    Loki’s Map Leads MPAA on Road to Nowhere

    “By Court Order [Edward Webber, former LokiTorrent owner] must provide the MPAA with access to and copies of all logs and server data related to his illegal BitTorrent activities, which will provide a roadmap to others who have used LokiTorrent to engage in illegal activities.”

    The MPAA’s press release is chilling. Not only has the money donated to the legal defence fund disappeared into a black hole, but all former registered users of LokiTorrent are placed at risk of future lawsuits.

    However, registered users will be relieved to hear that very little, if any, useful information will end up in the hands of the MPAA.

    “They don't have anything, they have air,” an ex-torrent site owner told Slyck. He chose to remain anonymous. For arguments sake, we will call him Paul.

    Paul also ran a Torrent site based on the same scripts and source used by LokiTorrent. They conferred regularly.

    Referring to the website logs:

    “Those access logs have no value it all. They only display whether you downloaded the .torrent file, not if you actually downloaded the content using that Torrent,” Paul explained to Slyck.

    The Torrent file is merely a key; the MPAA can not prove that it was used in any locks.

    I think I'll use the page as wallpaper for a while.
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
