DonTorrent is a Spanish website specialized in file sharing networks that has gained quite a few users in recent times. Why fool ourselves? is a typical torrent site that offers links to content that violates copyright.
If most torrent sites that include this type of content try not to catch the attention of copyright holders and anti-piracy groups, DonTorrent It seems that he has chosen the opposite. And it is that they have not thought of anything else to put in the disclaimer of the site as “official administrator” to Jan Van Voorn.
A total mockery taking into account that it is the Head of Global Content Protection of the Motion Picture Association (MPA), the largest film industry group that includes the five most powerful studios on the planet.
They say from TorrentFreak that the MPA and the anti-piracy group ACE is closely following DonTorrent and has asked Cloudflare for details of the site’s operators. It is usually a preliminary step before the lawsuit.
DonTorrent regularly changes its domain names to evade blocking efforts by search engines and carriers, a common practice among pirate sites. And here too there are jokes with the “sponsorship” of the Government of Spain with the “Ministry of domain blocking and censorship”.
TIt also has a dedicated .onion address that allows anonymous access through the Tor network. But it is not difficult to predict how it will end after the MPA has put it in the crosshairs. And if you put your boss against piracy as the “owner” of the site, well imagine…
It must be insisted that not everything that circulates through file sharing networks is limited by copyright and that “legal torrents” also exist. A clear example is the GNU/Linux distributions that are freely distributed on these networks and that is an ideal means of not overloading the official download servers, being able to maintain previous versions and, in short, save huge amounts of money on hosting.
You have software for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android, and other content such as movies, videos, books, games and a specific section for Anime in Legit Torrents; classic movies spanning all kinds of genres and also B movies on Public Domain Torrents; free and independent music that can be downloaded using legal torrents or streamed online on Jamendo or that wonder called The Internet Archive dedicated to the preservation of files and content and that has much shared on BitTorrent.
