This could probably go in MPSIMS, but it’s really more CS-related since pretty much the only thing you do with Mininova is download music, movies and tv shows.
It looks like The Man finally cracked down on Mininova, who just last week posted this:
“Content Distribution” means legal distribution by the author. In other words, they pretty much shut down. I went on tonight to grab yesterday’s Howard Stern show and was shocked by the complete and utter lack of content. Oh well, it was good while it lasted.
I’m not advocating torrent downloads, and I know the dope mods are skittish about this topic, but the shutting down of a major (“the” major?) torrent site would be similar to talking about a drug bust, which is perfectly fine on the boards.
Damn good guys and their stupid successes in court.
