KAT.am Torrent Shuts Down

After piracy website KickassTorrents was taken down by authorities following the arrest of its alleged owner Artem Vaulin in Poland last month, clone websites of KickassTorrents were back online with vengeance. One such popular clone website called KAT.amclaimed itself to be an improved version of the original and cannot be taken down. However, within just two weeks, KAT.am is shut down after a notice was issued by Motion Picture Association (MPA).

The operator of KAT.am said, they are not worried, because if it’s not they, then someone else will keep the game running. Someone else will surely keep it going.
KickassTorrents is accused of distributing over $1 billion worth of illegally copied films, music and other content. The MPA coordinated with the Armenian registry and got the domain deleted. Despite the misconception of some users, the Kat mirrors are allegedly not connected with the originat Kat site. In fact, the operators of the formerly active Kat.am site said that they were considering posting a notice to users, in efforts to clarify that the mirror is not connected to theoriginal Kat site.
