On August 2, 2007, Slonček, former owner of suprnova.org, donated the domain name to the owners of The Pirate Bay - the world's largest BitTorrent tracker. Today, August 21, 2007, the legendary Suprnova.org "The Universal Bittorrent Source" was relaunched by The Pirate Bay.
Originally launched late 2002 and considered the world's most popular BitTorrent search engine at the time, Suprnova.org got shut down in November 2004 following legal threats. The site operators turned to support the development of the eXeem BitTorrent client after realizing a "fixed" website too difficult to operate in the present legal climate and we all thought that was it. Today Suprnova.org is back to life.
The following message targeted at what they refer to as "non-internet loving companies" closes the official announcement on Suprnova.org homepage:
This is how it works. Whatever you sink, we build back up. Whomever you sue, ten new pirates are recruited. Wherever you go, we are already ahead of you. You are the past and the forgotten, we are the internet and the future.Lastly, an important note from me: under any circumstances don't confuse Suprnova.org with Suprnova.com. The latter being a site that charges for membership while the first and most other bittorrent sites do not.
