8,000,000,000 downloads over Easter
One of the world's most visited BitTorrent sites, broke another download record over the Easter break.
Mininova showed that it had 8,000,000,000 downloads, which is enough for every person in the world to have one. Normally Mininova's visitors have been downloading well over 10 million torrents a day and performing an equal number of searches on the site.
The site might even be expanding as India starts to warm to torrents as broadband becomes more widespread. Traffic from India has doubled, and with 1.1 billion people and only a couple million broadband subscribers to date, there is a huge amount of untapped potential.
The Dutch based outfit is awaiting a trial which is likely to decide its future.
