I have just read over on isohunt that lokitorrent has been shut down by the MPAA, the site is now displaying the following message,

This website has been permanently shut down by court order because it facilitates the illegal downloading of copyrighted motion pictures. The illegal downloading of motion pictures robs thousands of honest, hard-working people of their livelihood, and stifles creativity. Illegally downloading movies from sites such as these without proper authorization violates the law, is theft, and is not anonymous. Stealing movies leaves a trail. The only way not to get caught is to stop.
After the closure of suprnova, it looks like the MPAA is going after torrent sites in a big way. I am sure new sites will just pop up to take their place, never mind the site's like piratebay which don't brake the law in their own country and regularly stick two fingers up to the MPAA and the letters they send.

All the MPAA is going to do is drive people to the undernet and IRC which is tec they can not kill, No matter what they try.

The MPAA Site is displaying this message at the moment,

Sorry, this site is temporarily unavailable.

Please check back later.

DOS attack comes to mind.
