"BBC News reports that an Argentinian program that offered a Netflix-like interface for accessing torrents has resurfaced after its main website closed over the weekend.

Their site now hosts a goodbye letter. In it, they said that the software is legal, and that they're shutting down the service "Not because we ran out of energy, commitment, focus or allies. But because we need to move on with our lives".

All is not lost, though, as the project has been picked up by at least one torrent site, and the software is available on github. Yarr, 'tis a fine day to be a pirate!"

    Nah.

    I've seen this all before -- these are not at all new issues.

    Very few people who pirate casually ever bother to protect themselves at all.

    And I suspect that the number of casual pirates is still increasing, instead of decreasing -- no matter if the backend is BitTorrent-based or some other thing.
