“We’ve been fighting for years for your right to communicate but it’s time to move on. It’s been the experience of a lifetime, we wish you all the best!”

Founded in June 2005, BTjunkie has been among of the top Bit Torrent sites for more than half a decade. The unidentified founder was talking to TorrentFreak, torrent news, the legal actions againts Megaupload and The Pirate Bay played an important role in making the difficult decision.

Even BTjunkie was never targeted directly by copyright holder, the site was listed as a ‘rogue’ site that facilitated mass copyright infringement. BTjunkie is also one of the search terms censored by Google because it’s piracy related, alongside The Pirate Bay, RapidShare, uTorrent and others.
