"Newzbin has recently received two serious complaints regarding the indexing we perform, and raising doubts as to its legality.
It is likely that we will in the coming weeks be presented with a court case and have to defend our rights. We will be defending ourselves vigorously against both the complainants if necessary and we believe a court will agree with our view that linking to content on Usenet is indeed legal and our method of dealing with unlawful content is appropriate. We believe that, or we wouldn't still be here.
We are not in a position to disclose the identities of these two complainants (though I'm sure you can guess one of them) but we will report more as we can.
These cases are against us, not you. Having an account on Newzbin is not going to be a problem for you.
So, basically, if you start seeing press releases that legal action is commencing against us, don't be alarmed - we know, and indeed it's a good thing that we're getting these issues laid to rest.
Remember these things take time however, so it's unlikely we'll have further news for another few weeks - please don't hassle us for information, we will give you it when we have it."
