    Default Easytree GONE!

    April 6, 2005, 16:00 GMT

    Hello gals and guys,

    We're very sorry having to tell you that we had to shut down EZT 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 and the hosting service would 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...

    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!

    The EZT team:


    This is a very dark day for technology and the trading of bootlegs. With the fall of this website it has had a overwhelming effect on other Bit torrent trading sites! There were many great boots traded there and now it is gone!

    So we don't get in a heated discusion of who or what group is to blame for this, Here is the comments from Bono of U2.

    “My feeling is, that it is cool for the people to share our music - as long as no one is making money from the process. We tell the people who come to our concerts that they can tape the show if they want. I think, it is cool that people are so passionate about our music.” - Bono on bootlegs .

    I had mates at Easytree. They shared as much as they downloaded. They found some rare and great music there! All of the shows traded their were boots. No copyrighted material!
    The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.

    Bono's got the right idea..
    Personally, I don't think there's anything wrong with bootlegs unless people sell them, which unfortunately happens way too often.. But it's the sellers that are the problem. Not the bootlegs.

    Doesn't mean anything for JamToThis. When the tracker is working correctly, the site will be back. Hang in there. It's not closing.

    Sweet! Thanks Brett! But is there any concern that a similar thing might happen to that site too?

    Well as long as we have no copyrighted material up, I don't foresee an issue. I'm not too concerned with lawyer BS. My father is a lawyer, so any legal advice, I can get for free. If it's worth fighting, I might do so. But nobody's said a word to me yet, so we'll just not worry about it, until there's something to worry about.

    Was it true, Brett, that when you've been broadcasting It's About Time on the UN-Radio ELVH guys have called you to hault it? Or rumours are just rumours ?

    This was just my theory, and it was interesting that Bono's name came up.....My belief is that the closing of easytree was U2-related. Their tour just started, and the previous evening shows were online within hours, and were downloaded at a fever pitch I had never seen on easytree before. The show from the first night had been downloaded over 800 times within hours!

    I'm not pissed at U2.....i myself downloaded shows from the first two nights. Of course, it might also have something to do with the asswipes SELLING the shows on ebay. But the death of nthe site and STG a few months ago is unfortunate. I sheepishly admit an addiction to easytree that I'm not sure I'll be able to cure save for the ton of shows I've downloaded and shared that I have in my collections.
