You don't even need that. TPB didn't host any of the material, they just had the .torrent files. All you need is for another site to spring up that people start using for their trackers instead.

Supernova -> Mininova -> TPB -> something else

The only thing special about any of these is that they were popular. There's nothing unique that they did which the media companies are getting rid of when they shut one down. All the users just go somewhere else. They keep putting the horses back in the barn, but it doesn't do any good because they can't shut the door.
