torrent doom

well uk-torrents was taken down today in a rash of torrent destruction by the mpaa.

here is the standard message going about
http://www.lokitorrent.com/


so the MPAA is putting all fingers in everyones asses now. Is this the doom of torrents and is the mpaa coming after indivduals?

so far i have read no they are only targeting sites but heard yes.

i wish someone in china would run a large torrent server. i know i would.

scratch what i read,

Quote:
Ah yes, the old identifying trail. Since they now have the server logs, the MPAA plans to pore through them looking for identifying information that could lead to lawsuits against users of the site. A spokesperson for the MPAA said that such actions against high-volume users of the torrent site are likely, assuming they can be identified via IP addresses.
