    After losing a court battle, after 10.5 years of being around, Isohunt to shut down and play 110 Million Dollars in damages.

    RIP. This was one of the first sites that I used to visit. And I'm sure for many others as well.

    They didn't play nice at the end .. they tried to pull in money using their 'piracy' operations ..

    Also good luck trying to get any of that bogus 110 Million figure.

    Advertising .. openly advertising based on the type of traffic their site gets. Most such cases are based on deniability that .. We didnt know what our users do with our service,

    These were the biggest charge that were brought against The Pirate Bay .. using a questionably legal service and plastering it with ads.. TPB argued the money (Around $100,00 a year) was only to keep the Servers running and there was no real profit but loss.
