Actually they said they will be deleting the user data base if anyone asks for it. Of course they never did keep track of who downloaded a torrent. This will give my hard drive a rest. I think I has about to ware it out running torrents all day and night. At least we still have the Zappaters tracker. I know there are a bunch of others out there as well. I can hardly believe this has happened with EZT being so careful not to allow anything that might have possibly been seen to be official. I sure would like to know exactly what the legal complaint was? They would ban an artist with just the suggestion that the band or artist didn't want their bootlegs traded.

What a bummer! My life will be changed forever!!!
Who were these lawyers? Are they US-based? What about EZT - is it based in the US?
Thanks for all your support and work during the years. It will be missed
PS: better destroy all those server backups lest our identities be revealed! (semi-serious here...)

Hello gals and guys,

We're very sorry having to tell you that we had to shut down EZT
forever just a couple of minutes ago.

We got a call from our provider, they had received a few letters
from a couple of lawyers. They requested EZT to be shut down
immediately, otherwise we'd be sued.

As you may imagine, we do not have the funds to fight a battle we
most probably can't win anyway.

We would like to thank everyone here for their contributions to EZT,
one way or the other, for sharing the music, sharing an ideal, for
all your mails, rants, praises...

I'm sorry, I'm still too shocked to write on... maybe later I'll
find some more words or my collegues will do...

To say it with Joan Armatrading:

We had fun, fun, fun, fun
fun, fun, fun, fun
we had fun -- while it lasted...
--"Tall in the Saddle"--

You all take good care!
