Beleaguered BitTorrent search engine shuts down

Expensive legal battles have caused TorrentSpy, a major search engine for the BitTorrent file-sharing service, to shut down. A note on the home page of TorrentSpy’s Web site said it is shutting down “not due to any court order or agreement,” but because of a team decision.

TorrentSpy has spent the past two years and hundreds of thousands of dollars “defending the rights of our users and ourselves” in a legal climate that was “hostile” to torrent files, according to the note, which is attributed to the TorrentSpy team.
