Suprnova.org is BACK!

October 9, 2005 – 12:43 am | by Bill

Well, it is, but under another name. A friend of sloncek, the admin of SuprNova, has opened a website based on the old optimized site code. The new website is NewNova.org, and has no affiliation to SuprNova.org.

I find this interesting. Back in the day when I first started using Bittorrent, SuprNova was my prime source for all things. I knew of a few other torrent websites but they did not compare. Then SuprNova went down because of lawsuits, and a ton of new bittorrent websites popped up. One of my favorite websites, lokitorrent.com, eventually got shut down because of lawsuits I believe as well. After that, I looked around and there were literally hundreds of bittorrent sites. Recently there have been a ton of invite-only websites, invites given out similar to the way that Gmail’s invite system works. Can anyone remember something similar happening a few years ago, possibly a lawsuit against Napster? That spawned the outbreak of many new P2P clients, such as Kazaa, Limewire, WinMX, and others.

I predict that as they keep cracking down on Bittorrent sites, that more and more will keep coming. They may have defeated some more P2P networks, but there are many still operating. I do not even use networks such as Limewire that much anymore, as I can download the full cd via Bittorrent.

The movie industry is going to have to create something similar to Itunes, but for movies, before we see any decrease in movie pirating. They can create all the copy protection they want, but there will always be someone there to bypass it.

I am a member of SuperTorrents, and OiNK. Oink is a great source for music, and supertorrents is where I get a lot of recent miscellaneous movies, music, and other files. I tried to get an account at Demonoid, but I could not successfully login, so I gave up. Of course all of the music and movies that I download have been released under the Creative Commons license.
