Newzbin comes back to life

Zombie usenet rears up

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

As predicted, Newzbin has come back to life.

The Usenet indexer and search engine was shut after it was found guilty of copyright infringement at the end of March after action by the Motion Picture Association.

A message on its website said: "Regrettably the Newzbin website has to close as a result of the legal action against us." It said Hollywood studios should concentrate on fixing their broken business model rather than lobbying for ever more restrictive laws.

Even as it closed users were calling for the code behind the site to be open sourced in order for a clone to be set up.

The members-only site, which turned over £1m in 2009, is now allowing log-ins and new registrations.

Newzbin offloaded its porn links to a separate URL.

The site has always claimed to be no more than a search engine - it hosts no files itself. ®
