The most recent .pe domain will only be a temporary solution as Peru authorities will be soon to seize this domain as well. As a result ThePirateBay will move to a new extension shortly. If they were able to acquire thepiratebay.so or thepiratebay.ag it would be ideal. These are two of the safest locations (Angola & Burma or Somalia) to register domains and it would make sense if the ship attempted to sail there. ...

    Company BitTorrent Inc. - developer of the most popular Bittorrent client uTorrent - launched a new file-sharing related project. The new service got a name "SoShare" and was released on February 15th.

    SoShare is a new service for sharing of files online. It focuses on online users, who need to send and receive large amounts of data regularly. It's rather inconvenient to send large files by e-mail or use a cloud storage because of their limitations. The new SoShare should help users to transfer large files without size and speed limits.

    It is common knowledge that torrents are used for downloading pirate movies, music, games and much more. Despite this BitTorrent wants to make the world aware that they are not involved in any of the above.

    Their vice president Matt Mason wrote a blog post last week stating that their open-source, peer to peer technology is used to share content, but they do not endorse any form of piracy whatsoever.

    "We don't host infringing content. We don't point to it. It's literally impossible to 'illegally download something on BitTorrent,'" Mason wrote. "To pirate stuff, you need more than a protocol. You need search, a pirate content site, and a content manager. We offer none of those things. If you're using BitTorrent for piracy, you're doing it wrong." ...
