    I have never been there, but apparently a torrent site named oink has been disabled and shut down. If you are an oink user you might wanna book a flight to mexico... they are tearing through the database right now looking for people to come after.

    WWW.OINK.CD

    This site has been closed as a result of a criminal investigation by IFPI, BPI,
    Cleveland Police and the Fiscal Investigation Unit of the Dutch Police (FIOD ECD) into
    suspected illegal music distribution.


    A criminal investigation continues into the identities and activities of the site's
    users

    I have never used a torrent (don't even know how to) so I am pretty out of the loop, but I get the jist of it. A computer I bought had "limewire" on it when it was delivered to me (ebay purchase). I opened it up to see what it was and though I couldn't figure it all out, I pretty much understood it was not a good thing from a legal perspective.

    I reformatted the HD and went about my way, so I haven't had much experience with it. I've seen enough talk about torrents to understand their purpose, but never used them.

    It sounds like the OINK site goes above and beyond the normal sharing and distributes items not yet slated for release so there is likely to be some heavy attention to this since it has a different angle to piracy then the normal file sharing. I'd likely be pretty nervous if I were a top level oink user at this point.

    Generally speaking, they won't. Especially if it's something like mininova or TPB...

    But, what trackers do you use?
    I pretty much only use Demonoid.

    "joke"

    With a name like oink, you'd have to know there'd be pigs hanging around.

    "/joke"

    i thought at this point dling off torrent was still legal, something to do with indirect dls? as in "not recieving the file from 1 individual"?

    Downloading via torrents is perfectly legal.
    It's the content matter that you're downloading that determines whether or not you're breaking the law.

    Really, they don't (read: shouldn't) have much of a case, as OiNk was just a tracker. It watched over content uploaded by others. It never hosted anything illegal at all.
