Thread: http://pre.scenedb.org/ getting forced to shutdown on baseless copyright claims

  1. #1
    This is extremely sad and disheartening news. This was a great site and indexed extremely well. It will be sad to see it go, but I can't believe just how posting a list to a name can even be close to something on copyright grounds. Once again, abuse by the system. I'm writing this forum post in the hope that perhaps this will shed some deserving light on what went on here/the site, as I can't believe no one has brought it up (reported it) yet anywhere (torrentfreak, techdirt, filenetworks, etc.).

    It sounds like the owner is shutting it down to simply avoid problems, not necessarily forced out of lack of legal defense fund or whatever.

    Time to say good-bye to this hobby. I will close the pre-site from public by the end of this week. Once a hobby turns from fun to some serious sh*t, it is time to think whether it’s really worth it.
    I will decide later on if my database content will be “leaked” to public
