Newzbin2 file-sharing site closes down


File-sharing site Newzbin2, the successor to Newzbin, has been forced offline due to ‘lost editors’ and ‘unstable servers’.

The site, which has historically been found guilty of copyright infringement, attempted to dodge ISPs blocks by changing its name and opening up new servers in the Seychelles in June 2011.

However, more than a year a half later, Newsbin2 has called it quits after no longer realistically being able to accept payments or sustain itself economically.
