Kickass Torrents makes a comeback, maintains the original look with a much safer user interface than ever before. The website was shut down after the founder, Artem Vaulin was arrested in Poland early this year. Even after the U.S Justice Department had seized the domain name, torrent was not completely dead, as several other similar websites flooded the internet, but failed to replace Kickass Torrents.
Kickass Torrents is now fully operational and maintains the original look of the website. But, when trying to access the website, it took some time to load, which surely indicates that the site is under heavy traffic, and that the user's are delighted on Torrents' return.
In a report by TorrentFreak, Kickass Torrents stated that the majority of the original staffs, admins and moderation team members had joined them back after Kat.cr went down, and this is an extremely proud moment for them.
Reports also revealed that the company had a tough time putting back the website all over again. Kickass Torrents official also added that they are being extremely careful this time, and hence have made additional effort to keep only "safe elements" available on the website, keeping safety of the community their utmost priority.
Adding on to that, the company officials said that all the major uploaders had started to share content for the website even before the torrent engines returned, and the torrent community could expect to see uploads coming up from all the names they trust.
Kickass Torrents is now coming under a similar takedown procedure as YouTube and hence will not be storing any copyrighted material on their website like earlier.
