Taking down The Pirate Bay is not going to change anything
Published in Editorials

It was only a couple of days that the internet broke open with the news that The Pirate Bay was offline and that their offices had been raided by police. It looked like the end of the world for the file sharing community and a major win for the copyright gang. However, as it turns out, neither of these is likely to be even remotely close to the truth. Although The Pirate Bay has become synonymous with copyright infringement that was not really the intent of the site nor is pulling TBP down going to have any real impact on piracy and copyright infringement. This, like many other very public takedowns will end up being little more than a footnote in the ongoing war between the copyright cartels and… well everyone else.

Will Demonoid come back in the future

With all of the hype going on around recent news conferences from big companies (like Intel, Microsoft and Apple), not so many people noticed that Demonoid’s domain name servers were updated.  Even though that doesn’t mean they are coming back it is still a small sign that they are not completely dead. Demonoid's tech admin said that they are “not looking into putting the site back up at the moment.” The Site was taken down last month after they were DDoS-ed. Demonoid was hosted in the Ukraine and local authorities stated that Interpol asked them to take action against the site owners that were in Mexico.

Time to say goodbye to Demonoid?

Even though everyone was hoping for resurrection of one of the most famous torrent sites, things are looking pretty grim. The three domains on which Demonoid’s web page was available are currently for sale. There was a small hope that Demonoid had reserve servers to continue to work but Demonoid.com, .se, and .ph have been put on the market at Sedo. The responsibility for closing this tracker was taken by IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry).
