Free-for-all torrent sites like TorrentSpy are under close watch from the music and movie industry these days and a giant, so to speak, has fallen. TorrentySpy has implemented an automated filtering system, FileRights, that removes links to copyrighted material amidst a court order that was filed last year by a handful of Hollywood Studios, which now requires TorrentSpy to track user activity. Of course torrent sites like TS just make it easier for pirates to locate torrents, but it’s BitTorrent that allows said pirates to download the infringed content. But this shouldn’t mean much to you if you’re a knowledgeable pirate or you know the right people.
