First time accepted submitter S37Rigor Mortis (1601271) writes ", the largest torrent search engine on the Internet, has had its domain name suspended following a request from the Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit in the UK. The site continues to operate under two alternative domains, and is hoping to move the .eu domain to a new registrar." Update: 05/27 12:53 GMT by T : That was quick; the site is back, "after the owners pointed out that its suspension was illegal."

    ...does City of London police have any jurisdiction outside City of London? Registrar should not have caved in.

    I should like to point out that I, a registered voter and taxpayer, have never been asked whether I want my taxes spent on something so monumentally stupid as a Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit. And I suspect that its creation was an idea planted, bought, and paid for by You-Know-Who.

    Really? So all has to do is a dual search engine ("search for torrents or cat pictures!") and force users to do one cat picture search before they can do a torrent search. This way only 49% of searches are illegal and the service won't be shut down.

    Thank you for reporting this problem. Our engineers our still working out some implementation details. This should be fixed shortly.
