Kickass Torrent Founder Arrested, All Kickass Domains Seized

KickassTorrents was founded back in 2008 and provided a directory for torrent files and magnet links to facilitate peer-to-peer file sharing using the BitTorrent protocol.
However if you are trying to visit the Kickass website ( or any other Kickass domain), you would find it inaccessible.
And this is because the Worldwide famous pirate hub
Kickass torrent's boss, Artem Vaulin has been arrested by United States authorities.

The arrest was made in Poland where Artem was in hiding.

An excerpt from the United States Department of Justice 's press release by Assistant Attorney General Leslie Caldwell:

“In an effort to evade law enforcement, Vaulin allegedly relied on servers located in countries around the world and moved his domains due to repeated seizures and civil lawsuits. His arrest in Poland, however, demonstrates again that cyber criminals can run, but they cannot hide from justice.”

Artem will face charges in the United States and is looking at a maximum sentence of up to 5 years imprisonment.
With him also facing a conspiracy to commit money laundering charge, his sentence could be increased by an additional 20 years behind bars.

According to the Justice department, Artem had an annual advertising revenue of more than $16 million/year as at the time of arrest.
This development means Kickass torrent would go the same path Piratebay went.
However lovers of torrents would be keeping their toes crossed for an alternative to Kickass.
