Several BitTorrent sites including Torrentz and Fenopy have had their .EU domains put on hold by EURid, the European Registry of Internet Domain Names. The new status for the domains, forcibly applied by EURid within seconds of each other yesterday afternoon, suggests that legal action against them might be pending and prevents the owners from making changes.

Earlier this week Homeland Security’s ICE unit announced a new round of domain seizures. Unlike previous operations that centered purely on United States-held domains, this one was broader in scope.

Dubbed Project TransAtlantic, the seizures took place with help from European law enforcement agencies and Europol.

“Recognizing the global nature of Internet crime, this year the IPR Center partnered with Europol, who, through its member countries, executed coordinated seizures of foreign-based top-level domains such as .eu, .be, .dk, .fr, .ro and .uk. This effort is titled Project Transatlantic and resulted in 31 domain name seizures,” ICE announced.

Torrents are doomed! Its a shame that technology, and innovation has to suffer because of this. It's the content that's illegal. The technology behind it is very fast, and efficient. It would be amazing what could be accomplished with P2P if wasn't always being attacked  by so many different ... Well you know the rest.

things are only doomed when the last person gives up, even then the idea never dies

unfortunately some people don't understand the copyright infringement and p2p file sharing are two different things

torrents arent doomed... some games use it for updates.. most if not all linux distros are sent out via torrent, twitter uses torrent to shuffle data around its servers... and http://vo.do is doing a great job of sending out creative commons videos with it....
