Google Has A Custom Search Just For The Pirate Bay

You may have noticed that Google has changed a little bit recently. If you search for a site, it includes a handy-dandy site-search right in the results.

Warner Bros. Fights Piracy With An Army Of Bots That Mimic Humans

Thanks to an $US80 million lawsuit between Hotfile and the MPAA, a judge just ordered Warner Brothers to unseal records that explained the inner workings of their super secretive system to takedown pirated content. Now, the secret’s out, and the secret is “robots.”


How The Pirate Bay's Clever Hardware Setup Keeps The Site Alive

The team behind the slick service that lets you stream torrents like they’re Netflix movies keeps churning out updates. Popcorn Time recently got Chromecast support. Now it’s coming to an Apple TV near you, thanks to AirPlay support.


TorrenTV Streams Pirated Videos Straight To Your Apple TV

Apple sure won’t be happy about this. If you have an Apple TV media streamer, you’ll know that it’s a bit of a walled garden — it’s difficult to stream any content that you haven’t purchased legitimately off the iTunes Store or from your iPhone or iPad. (And that’s the way that it should be, since Apple isn’t in the business of enabling piracy.) By cleverly hijacking the Apple TV’s AirPlay support, a new piece of software called TorrenTV can stream downloading torrents straight to your big screen.


The Pirate Bay Is Now Mobile-Optimised, If That's Something You Want

The Pirate Bay, the infamous peer-to-peer file sharing website, has provided only the finest in illegal torrents for more than a decade, but it’s never been known for handsome mobile design. The torrent team has finally come up with a “mobile-friendly” version of its notorious website, in case you’ve ever wanted to torrent on the go.


World's Largest Torrent Search Site Seized By UK Police, But It's Back Already

Torrentz.eu, the world’s largest torrent search engine, was taken down temporarily Monday by a UK police order, but it’s already back: apparently the City Of London Police action wasn’t in line with accepted procedure, and Torrentz.eu’s domain name registrar was a little too hasty to comply.


Torrent Site Popcorn Time, Shut Down Yesterday, Is Alive Again

That was quick. After closing up shop yesterday among the usual copyright questions , and just a week after its first launch, Popcorn Time is back. TorrentFreak has the story of how the project, abandoned by its founders, will live on at the hands of YTS developers.


Popcorn Time, The Netflix Of Piracy, Has Already Shut Down

Well, that didn’t last long. Just a little over a week ago, Popcorn Time descended upon the masses as a way to easily (if perhaps not entirely legally) stream torrents straight to your computer. Now, though, amidst pressure regarding piracy, Popcorn Time has officially closed its doors.
