Yeah, we all know how lucrative of a business Napster 2.0 turned out to be.
I'm sure TPB will be replaced with another similar site (probably before I finish hitting "submit" to this post). There's a whole history of this going back years. TPB was hardly the first large torrent tracker, and will no doubt be followed by others. The media companies still haven't learned that shutting down the sites doesn't stop anybody. As soon as you kill one, another springs up. They can play that cat and mouse game forever and not accomplish anything.
