I taught torrents were died when they closed down suprnova, a few weeks later there was 10 other websites to take it's place.

There are plenty of other file hosting services. XBMC will just move on to the next big thing.

In response to today’s federal raid on the file sharing service Megaupload, hackers with the online collective Anonymous have broken the websites for the Department of Justice, Universal Music Group, RIAA and Motion Picture Association of America.

XBMC wasn't created to pirate movies/tv shows, it's been around long before icefilms and is a voluntary organisation.
They don't have anything to do with "mega sites"/icefilms and didn't write the various plugins that were used to access icefilms

XBMC also didn't "need" torrent sites, but it helped. Streaming is where it's at and there is no going back.

It wasn't paid goons that wrote the icefilms addon, it volunteers in the XBMC project. XBMC.org was happy enough to host the addon for over a year.

.Com domain controlled by US with servers in US also.


What servers did they have in the US does anyone know? From what I understand it was just DNS servers they had rented out in the US?

Torrents helped greatly broaden the base for using a media player on a TV.

There are still plenty of other streaming addons that are still allows to be discussed on xbmc.org, that wouldn't be allowed on boards.ie The icefilms addons thread got deleted on boards.ie 6 months ago.
