anilg writes: "http://isohunt.com/ , THE search engine for torrents is temprarily down. From the webpage:

Lawyers from our primary ISP decided to pull our plug without any advance notice, as of 14:45 PST. No doubt related to our lawsuit brought by the MPAA, but we don't have more information at this time until people responsible comes to work tomorrow. We will be back in operation once we sort out this mess with our current ISP, or we get new hardware ready at our new ISP.
They also note:

FYI, since this is a common topic, no, moving to Sweden or Sealand isn't going to help. I have no intention of hiding. BitTorrent was created for legitimate distribution of large media files, and we stand by that philosophy as a search engine and aggregator.
