I didn’t see this one coming at all, in fact I thought Demonoid was dead and buried. But no, six months to the day after it disappeared, the Demonoid BitTorrent tracker and site is back.
The trouble for the popular BitTorrent tracker began last June when a Dutch anti-piracy outfit put pressure on the site’s ISP. This lead to it being moved from Holland to Canada, presumed to be a safe haven.
Unfortunately for Demonoid, the CRIA (Canadian Recording Industry Association) got the site pulled by its ISP. After attempting to get past the problem by just blocking all incoming traffic from Canada, the site finally went offline, supposedly for good on November 9th.
Back For Good?
Now it’s back, and the site and tracker are reported to be both operational. What’s more Deimos, the site’s former administrator has now left the staff, and a new admin is in place.
TorrentFreak is reporting that all users who had an account before the extended downtime can access the site using their old user names and passwords.
While we cannot condone piracy here at WebTVWire, we thought some of you may like to know that the site is back online. How long for this time, is anyone’s guess.
