Scour Exchange closed

Written by Jari Ketola @ 16 Nov 2000 5:49

Scour has closed their Scour Exchange file-sharing service for good. The service was closed after months of ligitation with the music and movie industries, a bankruptcy and a series of layoffs the company was forced to shut down the service.
Scour asked for and received the bankruptcy court's permission to shut down Scour Exchange to facilitate a resolution of the massive copyright infringement lawsuit pending against Scour, and to help ease the sale of Scour's technology and assets to a company that is willing to help them continue change the world with their media search technology.

Luckily there are clients similar to Scour available - such as the eDonkey2000.
