TorrentSpy Acts to Protect Privacy

Torrentspy.com, an International search engine that provides links to torrent files, has decided to stop accepting visitors from the United States.

Torrentspy's servers are located in the Netherlands and is subject to International privacy laws including those in the European Union.

Torrentspy.com has a strong privacy policy protecting site users against the linking of personal identifying information to searches absent user consent.

Torrentspy's decision to stop accepting US visitors was NOT compelled by any Court rather it arises out of an uncertain legal climate in the United States regarding user privacy and the apparent tension between US and European Union Internet privacy laws.
