Kickass Torrent, probably the most popular torrent site on the web, will be blocked on Australia along with other sites that promote illegal streaming and piracy. But as Kickass is slowly falling down and disappearing, new torrent sites are rising out of nowhere, along with a ship that never sinks.
Fighter of piracy has done another move, and this time, in Australia. Though every season of "Game of Thrones" is partly to blame, it is the access to torrent sites that makes piracy easier. And the leading torrent sites that leaks paid contents is no other than Kickass Torrents. The torrent sites will be banned in the whole Australia within weeks, as reported by Express. The ban was dubbed as "flagrant" by Federal Court judge Stephen Burley.
It is not the first time Kickass Torrents is being banned in countries worldwide. The UK already banned the site because of widespread piracy. There are also some users who get warning mails by their Internet Service Providers.
In the search for piracy sanctuary, new sites (and old sites alike) are taking Kickass Torrents' once massive kingdom, as listed by Lifewire. The Pirate Bay stays strong and is one that will likely be one torrent users will seek out. This is so far (and still) the most trusted Kickass Torrent alternative. Next on the list are ExtraTorrent and BARBG, in which are becoming as famous as The Pirate Bay. Though the former is used more on movies and music and the latter is for high-resolution torrents. LimeTorrents is one of the fastest growing Torrent Sites on the Web. 1337X is also one of the old timers, though users only use this site if the sites above don't have what they're looking for.
The list goes on and on, check out the list from Lifewire for more. The list is being updated every month and when new sites come up. Kickass Torrents might be a shadow of its former self, but it is highly certain that some new sites will readily rise eventually.
