    Unhappy SoftMP3, SweDVDR and DarkSide trackers to shut down, TTi policy change

    For BitTorrent trackers that are hosted in Sweden, these are indeed dark times. Once a safe heaven for torrent sites, Sweden’s BitTorrent tracker scene has been collapsing ever since The Pirate Bay lost their case in Swedish court. In addition to the bunch of private trackers that closed earlier, two more popular Swedish trackers have decided to shut down their operations; SoftMP3 and SweDVDR. Another popular site based in Sweden,, has undergone major changes fearing legal action - It looks as if TTi will refrain from tracking copyrighted content in the future.

    We have quoted below some of the messages posted on these sites informing members of the shutdown/changes. Note that some of these are translated versions since the original messages were in Swedish/Hungarian.

    Following is now displayed on the homepage of SoftMP3, a popular private tracker that specialized in music torrents:

    It is with great sadness we inform our members that this tracker is closed indefinitely on grounds of safety.
    And quoted below is a new post from SweDVDR – a large torrent site that tracked untouched DVDR releases of Swedish and English movies. They were apparently threatened by Swedish Anti-Piracy Agency with legal action:

    2009-04-22 - Swedvdr's future
    Most Swedish trackers including Swedvdr has received threats from the Anti-Piracy Office so torrent activity must stop.
    Since I do not want litigation against me will be sadly Swedvdrs tracker and torrents disappear within a week.
    Like Swebits page will still be evident, including the Forum remains. / / Soft
    Popular General/0Day tracker too have undergone a shocking policy change ahead of the mass shutdown of Swedish trackers. Below is a message posted by TTi staff on site homepage:

    The future of TTi
    All of us in Staff just came back from a 1 hour long meeting regarding the future of TTi. The meeting is now over and we have finally come to a conclusion.
    From now on, TTi will only concentrate on bands/artists that want to spread their material on the Internet and waiting for a record contract. As you might have noticed, we have had our own music releases with bands that want to be spread around the Internet, hoping for a record label to spot them for quite some time. Because of all the turbulence and insecurity about whether it's okay to run a tracker or not, we have now decided to go full out on bands that want to be discovered through the Internet.
    The forum will stay as normal. We know how much you like our forum, and we will do everything we can to keep up the awesome spirit that we have today. We will however make some small changes, all for the greater good.
    More things will come up, but more info about that will come up later on.
    We of course realize that many of you are disappointed about this suggestion, but we have decided that this is the best for the future of TTi, because closing down the site completely is something that will never happen. We hope that you will still hang around the site and help us out keeping the site as good as we have always been!
    Best regards,
    TTi Staff
    Meanwhile the elusive and well hidden general/0day tracker DarkSide (DS – not to be confused with the torrent index DarkSide_RG) too have decided to shut down. Unlike other sites mentioned in this article, DarkSide is not shutting down due to legal threats (Swedish law has no impact on DarkSide since it’s a Hungarian tracker). As far as we know reasons for DS closure include the bad behavior (Hit and Run, etc) and attitude of majority of the site’s users as well as a flurry of low quality releases uploaded to the tracker recently. Anyways DarkSide was a great tracker and it will no doubt be greatly missed by it’s loyal members.

    imi amintesc ca am intrebat nu stiu ce chestie,pe NB pe irc,raspunsul lor a fost: pai daca nu esti de'al nostru (nordic) poate ar fi fost mai bine sa nu iti faci cont,NB fiind un tracker nordic,pentru nordici.....ultima parte fiindu-mi subliniata de cateva ori

    eeeei baietii,acuma sa va vad,gata fitele exclusiviste?

    Government Shuts Down BitTorrent Tracker | TorrentFreak

    We are hoping that the server will be released back to us sometime tomorrow but we cannot be certain of that. One thing I will say is that we will not be staying with this hosting company and I am at this very moment looking for another host.

    Do not listen to any rumours about LL, we are not closing down and I hope that we can get the site back up as soon as possible. I am sending this email out to all members via a backup which I have loaded onto another server. I do have a test server which some members are hanging out on as it has a shoutbox and we can also keep members up to date with what is happening. If you want to join us then click the link below, you will need to register as it has nothing to do with the main site at all.

    Alternately you can register an account with our forums to also keep up to date with the goings on on the following link:

    The Lair Forums

    Any member that is worried about this situation there's no need as I have removed all logs from the server as well as all snatch lists. So there is nothing for the Malaysian government to gain from it.

    I will keep you all updated one way or another and I can assure you that the Lair WILL be back

    TTi imi placea mult, gaseam intotdeauna ce vroiam pe el.
    DarkSide il ingrageam foarte mult, imi era unu din cele mai drage si acolo aveam si ratia cea mai mare
    Nici SoftMp3 nu era rau, cred ca asta e deja inchis

    sceneHD mai merge inca

  11. #11


    sct l-au mutat deja pe alt server din us,iar din cate stiu eu tl era prin olanda(nu sunt sigur)
    au avut de suferit numai trackerele nordice
