This might come as a bit of a shock to die hard torrent lovers; turns out Mininova, one of the most popular torrent trackers on the net, has officially just gone legit and thus limits its activities to a content distribution service.
Mininova first launched their content distribution service in 2007 which allows producers and artists to easily distribute their content for free through Mininova.
The launch of Content Distribution has proven to be a success. Countless content owners have used Content Distribution to distribute their content (e.g. albums and documentaries) for free to millions of users. For example, the Dutch band Silence is Sexy released their complete album on Mininova and received the Interactive Award 2009 for doing so. The Dutch television broadcaster VPRO decided to start using Content Distribution in 2009 in order to distribute documentaries.
But I'm sure there's many sad faces out there after reading this. No more downloads of your favourite TV shows etc. - With that said, though, there's a large amount of others out there to use ;)
