Torrentpy ordered to track visitors

Torrentspy, one of the most prominent torrent trackers to emerge recently, has been ordered by a federal judge to create logs detailing user activity! Wow.TorrentSpy has previously promised in its privacy policy to never track visitors without their consent.

Torrentspy has posted the following message on their site:
The really scarry thing is that if we lose this court battle, the movie studios will be able to go after any search engine or website and force them to collect data about YOU. It is not an exaggeration to say that losing this fight is a nail in the Internet's coffin.

We have spent the last year challenging their relentless campaign against the 1st Amendment and personal privacy laws Worldwide. We have succeeded in delaying the court order to turn on logs while we appeal it. TorrentSpy will not create logs of what you do on the site without your consent.
