‘To take it down, you have to take down the internet’: New file-sharing technology is IMMUNE to government attacks

Government attempts to knock out file-sharing sites in the battle against music and film piracy could be doomed.

A new file-sharing software called Tribler cannot be knocked out by governments or anti-piracy organisations, its creators claim.

‘The only way to take it down is to take the internet down,’ says Dr Pouwelse of Delft University of Technology.

Tribler is a variant on the popular BitTorrent file-sharing software, but is designed specifically to stay online under any circumstances – including attacks by governments and anti-piracy organisations.

‘Tribler is designed to keep BitTorrent alive, even when all torrent search engines, indexes and trackers are pulled offline,’ says file-sharing news site Torrentfreak.

Moves such as the seizure of the Megaupload domain by U.S. authorities would not work against Tribler.
