How the world’s most popular torrent site was able to get movies months before they came out
KickassTorrents was the world’s most popular torrent site — even bigger than The Pirate Bay. But the site has been taken down, and its alleged operator arrested.
The criminal complaint against KickassTorrents and its alleged operator includes a chart that shows the cinema release dates of popular movies, the date they appeared on KickassTorrents, and the DVD release date.
For every single movie, KickassTorrents managed to release a version weeks before the DVD was in stores, often just days after the films were screened in cinemas.
