A new direction for BakaBT
« on: April 01, 2016, 12:00:34 am »
Fellow members, BakaBT has received a large scale DMCA takedown notice, amounting to almost 95% of our entire content.
For the past week we have been looking in to the validity of these claims, and unfortunately it seems that the claim is established. Our service provider informed us about possible legal action should we fail to comply.

Due to a very high possibility of servers being confiscated, and in an effort to protect the privacy of our users while trying to keep BakaBT alive, we have decided to strip the tracker component from our service list. We will still strive to keep BakaBT the best place to look up information on the best possible releases, host screenshots and vivid descriptions, however for the actual content you will have to turn to other sources, like XDCC.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused you and hope that you will still support BakaBT in its new chapter.

-BakaBT Staff

Ehh, 4/10. Not really believable. The tracker wasn't even disabled.

But we are working on clearing up all user information linking our members with torrenting.

The only confusion came from the fact that the time stamp on your news page seems to be based on local time so it shows up here are being posted on March 31. You should have been patient and waited at least until April 1st on America's West coast.

Also I was trying to conceive of what combination of companies it would take to total 95% of BakaBT's content. Even if every single anime and manga company in Japan got together it might not equal that much. There's probably more than 5% in hentai manga from independent artists alone.

Normally people wouldn't believe it with aaaall the effort BBT takes to stay clean of licensed stuff. But I guess you went for it. Long live BBT <3

Oh mannnn, I was completely oblivious to what day it was.

Now i'm so sad at myself for believing this, because I went to my Seedbox and cleared all my seeding torrents since they were of no use anymore.
