these torrent sites are nothing but pointers, information. No copyright infringement actually occures on the sites. Basiclly its.. Hello, I'm looking for a pirated copy of Band of Brothers. Ok, here's a place that has it and here are the directions to it (.torrent) Have a nice day. Then the copyright infringmement happens between the sharer and the downloader. Not the torrent site. How many sites out there are there that tell you how to make crystal meth, dirty bombs, grow marijauna, turn a semi-auto into a fully-auto, jailbreak your iPhone, break DRM and many more illegal activities. Why are those still up? Huh? Any internet search provider could be sued for allowing a search result to come up that points to a site that has any how-to or where-to-go info for doing activities the violate laws. Like doing a yahoo or google search for a no-CD crack or keygen. Or any forum, chat board or IM that does not block such info. HardOCP has rules against posting such info, but how about IMs AIM has allowed Mr. X to send a link to Priate Bay to Mrs. Y. It passed through AIM's servers and it was not blocked? Such laws and court cases could have dire affects that are initially not intended. DMCA for instance has done nothing to prevent piracy. It has only stiffled innovation, prevented legitimate competition and supressed free speech and fair use.
