A well known and much used eDonkey2000 listing site has closed its doors due to mounting legal pressure. The German The-RealWorld.de site focused primarily on links to TV shows. It did not host any copyrighted files however, just ed2k link that can be used to find content easily on the eD2K network. Here is a message left on the homepage of the site.
TRW is under legal attack and forced offline for the time being.
For the legal defence TRW seriously needs your help. Please donate whatever you can via the paypal donation option below.
Even 1-2 Euros would help already and paypal offers secure payments via credit card as well as from your bank account in many countries.
If any donations might be left after this situation, they will be donated for a good cause like EFF or Oxfam.
Thank you very much for your help!
Many of the sites users suspected that something was up as over the last few months several links to certain TV shows were disappearing from the site.
