Um, using Isohunt is not illegal, nor is using a Torrent Client for that matter. Downloading of certain material is illegal from whatever source or location it is.

I can't answer that as I know nothing about Kick Ass Torrents and my comment was specific to Isohunt. Maybe something they were doing was illegal. Up until late last night Isohunt has been working fine and Isohunt have said that this is a technical issue, not a legal one.

Because it's easier to block the site than the content (I'd imagine), plus it may also be down to them providing links to download illegal things.

Something is not illegal just because the american government tries to impose a world-wide ban.

It's like declaring a whistle-blower an criminal because he revealed criminal actions of those wielding the illusion of power.

I use torrents every day. Many legit companies offer torrent versions of their downloads too.

I have no idea who blocked KAT, but I know the uk ISPs blocked pirate bay, not the US government.

Many legit companies DO offer torrents, but they generally don't post it on these kinds of sites, instead just offering the torrent off their own servers.

It was the courts that banned these sites, not ISPs...

I would go into a long winded speech about these sites not hosting any copyrighted material etc but I can't be bothered.

The bans are useless though as it's very easy to get around them. For example TPB had an increase of traffic from the UK after the ban.

I dont use torrents for movies or applications anymore. I use them for TV shows, when stupid american TV studios decide to make reasonable paid for downloads and not try to force UK people to wait 6 months before we can watch shows, then I will buy them no problem.
With the internet now, its impossible to not watch a show and it not get spoilers everywhere

Just be glad you don't live in Germany. They often release a 'tracked' torrent on the usual sites and then whoever downloads the files gets their IP address tracked. The next thing you know is that in 2 weeks you get a letter from a local solicitor with a fine for 1,000 and the only way to appeal is to hire your own, independent lawyer and to take them to court. Over there you are also personally responsible as the bill payer for use of your internet service including WiFi.

What's the UK implementing in 2015? A three time loser ISP ban for illegal downloading.

ISOhunt is back and I can access KAT from UK, IIRC it's just the bigger ISP's that block some torrent sites not all of them?

Yeah, at home Virgin Media block them but no issues with accessing them through my phone's connection (on 3).

Have to laugh at the article saying "the demise of The Pirate Bay", they're going stronger than ever.

Yes, of course... UK courts started imposing bans because of new legislation that was pushed through by whatever overpaid government twats. It's still as a result of pressure from the large media corporations in the US wanting to lock down everything. I mean they're banning rainwater collection in some US states now so you can see where that country is headed.
