    [EN] Torrentz online 24 hours after police shutdown

    Torrentz.eu, one of the largest search engines for downloads on file-sharing websites, was taken offline by the City of London police for linking to pirated content on May 26th.

    Torrentz.eu was already blocked in the UK by a number of British ISPs, having been blacklisted in October 2013 alongside 20 other file-sharing sites, but the side’s domain name was removed entirely on Monday. By Tuesday, however, the site was back up following legal complaints from the owners.

    The City of London police had contacted Torrentz’s domain name registrar, and asked it to suspend the site for linking to content which infringes copyright.

    A City of London Police spokesperson said, “The Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit (PIPCU) has recently contacted a number of domain registrars hosting copyright infringing as part of Operation Creative, and as a result several major copyright infringing websites, including Torrentz.eu, have closed down.”

    However, the site is still live at other domain names [SSL: torrentz.eu torrentz.me torrentz.ch torrentz.in]. The force’s request has no legal force, but many registrars follow such requests anyway.

    “At the first instance of a website being confirmed as providing copyright infringing content, the site owner is contacted by officers at PIPCU and offered the opportunity to engage with the police, to correct their behaviour and to begin to operate legitimately,” the City of London police spokesperson said. “If a website fails to comply and engage with the police, then a variety of other tactical options may be used including; contacting the domain registrar informing them of the criminality and seeking suspension of the site and disrupting advertising revenue through the use of an Infringing Website List (IWL) available to those involved in the sale and trading of digital advertising.”

    Torrentz' legal team stated that the suspension was unlawful

    Nazwa, a Poland-based company which is the site's domain registrar, had suspended the .EU domain of the site. Apparently, they received a letter from the Intellectual Property Crime Unit of the UK Police department.

    Torrentz.eu domain was unsuspended and the torrent search was made available to users. When Torrentz' legal team stated that the suspension was unlawful, the Polish registrar restored the DNS entries of the domain name, reported by TorrentFreak.

    People were clueless about the sudden unavailability of Torrentz.eu as they used Hashtag #torrentz to find out. Torrentz is one of the leading torrent Web sites.

    Nazwa, a Poland-based company which is the site's domain registrar, had suspended the .EU domain of the site. Apparently, they received a letter from the Intellectual Property Crime Unit of the UK Police department.

    City of London Police targeted numerous domains and asked their registrars to suspend the names. Many agreed, however others plainly refused as they stated they won't suspend the domains without a court order.

    Nazwa, too, complied and suspended Torrentz.eu domain, however it was later unsuspended and the site was up and running for users.

    The ns1.blocked.netart.pl and ns.2blocked.netart.pl ones were replaced by the old DNS entries.

    According to TorrentFreak, the legal team of Torrentz contacted the registrar and in a letter explained that the domain cannot be suspended because of a third-party's request.

    The Web site noted that ICANN's Transfer Dispute Resolution Policy Panel declared that a court order is a must to take such actions.

    The team at Torrentz was delighted and planned to continue the Web site with .eu domain.

    Intellectual Property Crime Unit of the UK Police informed TorrentFreak that the latest acts to ask registrars to suspend the domains is because of the "Operation Creative." The copyright holders identify the Web sites and the police officers verify them.

    Also, TorrentFreak received statement from the UK Police as a response to the inquiry made by the Web site. The department revealed how Web sites are identified and what appropriate actions are taken.

    "As part of Operation Creative, rights holders in the creative industries identify and report copyright infringing websites to PIPCU, providing a detailed package of evidence indicating how the site is involved in illegal copyright infringement. Officers from PIPCU then evaluate the websites and verify whether they are infringing copyright. At the first instance of a website being confirmed as providing copyright infringing content, the site owner is contacted by officers at PIPCU and offered the opportunity to engage with the police, to correct their behaviour and to begin to operate legitimately."

    "If a website fails to comply and engage with the police, then a variety of other tactical options may be used including; contacting the domain registrar informing them of the criminality and seeking suspension of the site and disrupting advertising revenue through the use of an Infringing Website List (IWL) available to those involved in the sale and trading of digital advertising."

    For now, Torrentz.eu is available for users.
