TorrentSpy Shuts down

TorrentSpy.com, is shutting down access to users in the United States, according to the message on their website.

The BitTorrent tracking site was facing a copyright lawsuit from the motion picture industry, which started in February 2006.

Justin Bunnell, the founder of the site writes: “We have decided on our own, not due to any court order or agreement, to bring the TorrentSpy.com search engine to an end and thus we permanently closed down worldwide on March 24, 2008.”

A little over a year ago, TorrentSpy.com was the most visited BitTorrent site in the internet.
