kickasstorrentsA little over a week ago, popular torrent website KickAssTorrents (KAT) had its domain seized and its alleged owner arrested. However if The Pirate Bay fiasco taught us anything, closing one torrent website only means that another will pop up, and sure enough the team at IsoHunt wasted no time in launching a KAT mirror.

However it seems that the movie studios have wisened up to the ways of the pirates because it seems that they have not wasted any time either, and have since sent a takedown notice to one of the more popular KAT mirrors out there,, warning them to shut down or face potential legal repercussions.

Part of the legal email reads, “This Notice requires you to immediately (within 24 hours) take effective measures to end and prevent further copyright infringement. All opportunities provided by the Website to download, stream or otherwise obtain access to the Entertainment Content should be disabled permanently.”

However it seems that the operator of the website has no plans to comply, which we guess would be very “pirate” of them. Speaking to TorrentFreak, the operator said, “The MPAA coordinated with the Armenian registry and got the domain deleted. We are making continuous attempts to bring it back, utilizing all the legal channels available.”
