Am I allowed to host openbay?

January 4, 2015 2.1k views

Isohunt recently released thepiratbay’s source code. The ToS say that I can’t seed torrents from my VPS. But can I host openbay, since it is just a torrent database and does not actually seed the torrents?

  • I would think you are correct: a seed-box is a different thing than a torrent site with magnet links.

    However, you might catch some flak from the MAFIAA…

    A private tracker site might be a better approach.

  • I’d like an official view on this
