Torrent Sites Shut Down By RIAA
 posted  November 18th 2011 at 9:44 AM
The RIAA has informed the U.S. government about the piracy-promoting websites it would like to be dealt with in the near future. The list includes all major torrent sites, but also Russia?s Facebook and Classmates equivalent. The submission is particularly sensitive because the House Judiciary Committee today discussed the pending Stop Online Piracy Act, which would grant copyright holders the power to put these sites out of business.

Leading up to today's hearing in Washington, there has been a lot of talk about the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA).

Aside from making streaming of copyrighted content a felony, the pending bill aims to make it easier to put sites that facilitate copyright infringement out of business.

Should SOPA become law authorities and copyright holders will have a broad range of tools to censor sites they deem to be facilitating copyright infringement. Aside from domain seizures, they can demand that search engines remove ?rogue sites? from their results, order ISPs to block these domains, and cut off their payments providers.

Based on visitor count, the number of pirated music files that are linked, and the sites? failure to take steps to address the massive piracy problem, they arrive at the following list:

  • ThePirateBay.org
  • isoHunt.com
  • Torrentz.eu
  • BTjunkie.org
  • Kat.ph
  • Demonoid.me
  • Bitsnoop.com
  • TorrentReactor.net
  • TorrentHound.com
  • Monova.org
  • BTmon.com
  • Fenopy.eu
  • H33T.com
  • SUMOTorrent.com
  • LimeTorrents.com

Under SOPA, all the above domains could be put out of business without due process, the only requirement is that the Attorney General has to sign off on it.
