Isohunt Ordered To Remove Infringing Content

A U.S. judge is ordering Isohunt, one of the world’s leading BitTorrent search engines, to remove all infringing content. Isohunt’s operator said Tuesday that the decision would likely shutter the site, which has 30 million unique monthly visitors.

The injunction targeting Isohunt follows similar rulings against competing pirate sites like Mininova and The Pirate Bay, although the Bay has thus far eluded compliance.

A federal court sided last year with the MPAA, ruling that Isohunt was an unlawful avenue to free movies, music, videogames and software - the first U.S. ruling on the legality of a BitTorrent site. Hollywood’s legal tactics shuttered TorrentSpy in the United States in 2008, but the merits of the case were never decided.

Another torrent site has reached the point of either choosing to close down or pay huge fines.  8)
