    I'm not so sure. The U.S. will know exactly whose arm to twist to get what they want.

    I hope KAT makes a comeback but it seems unlikely right now. Although I use various private trackers, I used KAT quite a bit and now I find myself using thepiratebay.org & extratorrent.cc.

    It's unreal how much taxpayers' money the U.S. spends on copyright infringement issues.

    No. Do you mean from your isp? or from a Kickass torrent site account?

    I think Russia and Ukraine have alot of Pirated contend hosted. Sometimes i use Direct Connect and most of the russian hubs have Petabyte shares.
    One guy has a uber share of 360TB. That was months ago tho. Most i see now is 54 TB for a single share

    Megaupload wasn't even a piracy site, staff actually took down copyrighted content. The founder only got arrested because John Key is a tri hard.

    I think I'll stick with Demonoid for now until we're sure it's safe.

    Is that like the time I deliberately set out to kill someone but still phoned an ambulance which technically meant they had a hope?

    KAT had servers in the US and Canada. Why would it be shut down by Ukranian officials? Are you saying that Ukranians should be immune from prosecution from any laws they break in the US?

    I didn't know that. Not even Americans should have servers in the US, whether they're doing anything illegal or not. That's just asking for trouble.

    The Canadian sites were investigated by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. If you don't want trouble then keep off the net.

    More like host your sites in places that don't condone spying on its own citizens or attempting to outlaw cryptography.

    I use demonoid's .onion link for extra paranoia XD not to mention a vpn and an IP blocker. Gotta protect myself while downloading linux....

    Well considering Allofmp3 is still operating under a different name and still has ever since the alleged "shutdown" which operates out of Russia and is next door neighbors to Ukraine, I doubt they'll get anywhere..... For those wondering, Allofmp3 is/was a Russian Digital Music Store that sells/sold music at a fraction of the price of itunes and what not and let you choose whatever format you want at whatever bitrate your heart desires, including lossless. They operate/operated on a loophole where they don't need permission to sell music as long as they pay royalties to a collecting society that's sanctioned by the government. The collecting society holds onto the royalties until they are claimed, of course none of the major record labels ever collected or will ever collect from those types of operations as they claim that by doing so they're "endorsing" it. Artists are free to pick up what's rightfully theirs however independent of their record labels.

    A good wikipedia on the whole scenario: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AllOfMP3

    If they can get away with selling unauthorized music in a country like that for profit, KAT has nothing to worry about XD
