Bit Torrent creator to release search engine


If you live at all in the world of file-sharing, then you’ll have probably heard of Bram Cohen, creator of the Bit Torrent peer-to-peer file swapping program. While illegal sites are going down faster than greased lightning, it looks like Bram is going (semi) legit to provide a search tool for Bit Torrent sites (hopefully it’ll work better than eXeem). While Bram won’t stop the Torrent searcher finding copyrighted files, he will remove links at request of the copyright holders.  The search engine will be funded by adverts.
