EZTorrent Bites the Dust
Yet another torrent site folds under pressure
by Shad0wlore 05:27PM Wednesday Apr 06 2005
EZTorrent, one of dozens of Bit Torrent file trading sites users fled to after the SuprNova shutdown, today called it quits. "We got a call from our provider, they had received a few letters from a couple of lawyers - they requested EZT to be shut down immediately, otherwise we and the hosting service would be sued," the group's website informs. "As you may imagine, we do not have the funds to fight a battle we most probably can't win anyway," they note.

Re: What he's *really* saying...

Hey Steverino, instead of shooting off your mouth again with your tired "THIEF! THIEF!" crap, read Sarah See Profile's post (»EZTorrent Bites the Dust , so you won't strain yourself scrolling with one hand) and tell me how shutting down a site that was actually trying to blaze the "right way" through this legal forest warrants you sniping at them. Are you really that starved for attention?

These guys were the meet point between many bands and their fans, with totally authorized (read: LEGAL) content being distributed in the most efficient way possible.

I'm a pompous windbag.
