"The old Pirate Bay will be no more come Feb. 29, as the website plans on deleting all its torrents. But music and movie sharers don't have to worry much -- TorrentFreak reports that the files will be available via magnet links, and that Pirate Bay will persist in a slightly different role."
"The news comes shortly after Pirate Bay announced last week that a torrent-less, 90-MB version of the website could be stored on a thumb drive. The move to magnet links might reflect a shift in the file-sharing world, in which users -- and not servers -- play the most important hosting role. Tribler talked to TorrentFreak last week about its virtual invincibility -- since it's entirely peer-to-peer, it's almost impossible to regulate. "
