KickassTorrents resurrected, delivers manifesto
The report that the KickassTorrents (KAT) founder, Artem Vaulin, had been arrested in Poland sent ripples across the internet. However, in less than 24 hours after the ararrest, a mirror was already up and running for KAT.
KickassTorrents is one of the most popular torrenting sites on the internet, possibly up on the same level as the s legendary The Pirate Bay. And even with its founder being identified and arrested by authorities, the site has already been resurrected by IsoHunt via mirror site (kickasstorrents.website), reports The Next Web.
The mirror site is still fairly simple but additional functions could be added in the coming days.
The team behind this resurrection effort wanted to send its clear support for Vaulin. Upon visiting the site, visitors are presented with a manifesto which includes the group’s stand and its call to free Artem Vaulin.
As is apparent in the case of The Pirate Bay, fighting online pirates is a mostly futile endeavour. When a site is taken down, several more like it pop up.. Like the hydra from Greek mythology. Alfred Bayle
