The Pirate Bay starts "miivi.org" tracker

The Pirate Bay starts "miivi.org" tracker Many savvy and paranoid torrent downloaders have noticed that the latest episodes of "Heroes" and "Prison Break", released on EZTV, are being tracked by none other than MiiVi.org, the trap site set up by MediaDefender to entrap pirates.
However, the tracker is another ingenious idea by the guys over at The Pirate Bay and nothing to be worried about. The new tracker describes itself "as a tribute to the fall of MediaDefender" and was registered to the admins of the The Pirate Bay. EZTV will now be using the tracker "tv.mivii.org" for its TV releases.

Just another parting shot at MediaDefender as it dies slowly.

LOL, I think some people should be given a breathalyzer test before being allowed to cruise the Afterdawn forums.

Yes, like that one thing with the cars they are trying to make. I has you take a breathalyzer before starting your car.

Also, I don't want to stop the series of everyone from Vector_V down quoting the ignorant confused guy so here it is:

See?

As for the article, I am starting to wonder if somehow this may turn out to be a bad thing. I mean, what if MediaDefender somehow finds a way to spoof that as a tracker and now people think it's ok because TPB legally has it registered.

I love this article the pirate bay never lets me down on new methods and ideas that they come up with.

Yeah The PirateBay is an unusually ACTIVE site!
I prefer it alongside ISOHUNT and to some lesser extent Torrentz.com
search engines.

dude, that guy with file hosting preference!
what a waste of time waiting,typing codes and one-by-one getting each files and speed is AWFUL!!
