www.uptownmag.com diversions Ahoy, pirates! Like to steal content? Good luck with that www.alloneword.ca Anthony Augustine bit.ly/demonoid_down—With popular torrent site Demonoid dead in thewater after the serverswere seized and all the user information turned over to the Feds by the Ukrainian government,entertainment junkies have been scrambling tofinda newsource for piratedmovies, music, software and TV shows. While many users thought the semi- closed nature of Demonoid (you needed an invite to join) would keep it offthe radar, it looks like the sitewas taken downas away for Dep- uty Prime Minister Valery Khoroshkovsky to impress the Americans on hisfirst trip toWashington.Although there are other torrent track- ers, what's next? In most cases, it's not like you can walk down the street to rent your favourite movie anymore. Do you bug your geeky friends for an invite to their super-secret private tracker? Plunk down some cash for a VPN or proxy to keep yourself and your information shielded? Give up torrents,finally go legit and get yourself Apple TV? While this is the biggest piracy-related bust/shutdown in some time, history shows that newsites and services will pop up to fill the void left by Demonoid—or maybe Hollywood will finally figure out this whole digital distribution thing (I doubt it).At least the guys from the Pirate Bay don't look like they'll be giving up any time soon.
