If you’re curious about file sharing and torrenting, it looks like the place to go to learn more is TorrentFreak.com. I had never heard of this site before Cat mentioned it on the piracy post, but it seems to be pretty major; as TorrentFreak themselves are happy to brag about, Jack Schofield, writing for the Guardian, described them as “a more reliable source” than the BBC, at least where the subject of torrenting and piracy was concerned. They aim to be a “credible” source of news on the subject of all things BitTorrent related.
As a side note, I wonder if the seachers realise that there’s a “recent seaches” box on the bottom of the page displaying the things they just searched for? Many of them look to be just too disturbing for words. Yuck.
