Original Staffers Restores Kickass Torrents. The world’s leading Torrent Website, Kickass Torrents has been launched again. The website has allegedly been restored by the website’s original staffers.
Back in July, Kickass Torrents was apprehended after suspected agitator Artem Vaulin was arrested in Poland and the domains of the website were held. The US establishments alleged him of making over $1 billion of copyrighted material available online free of cost.
Though the website never died completely due to clone websites. It has been brought back to life in hopes of bringing Kickass Torrents lost glory. Katcr.co has propelled a completely working torrent website, which appears identical to the original Kickass Torrents (KAT) portal.
“The majority of our original Staff, Admins and Moderation team joined us after Kat.cr went down – which is something we’re very proud of. This shows the loyalty, dedication and real love for KAT that we all share.”
The Kickass Torrents team told TorrentFreak.

The KATcr team said on the site’s launch that,
“We have all our major uploaders on board and they continued to share tirelessly even before the torrent engines returned. The torrent community can continue to expect to see uploads from all the names they know and trust.”
After the closure of the original Kickass Torrents portal previously this year, numerous mirror sites came up online, appealing to be the actual restoration.
Though in reality, many of those mirrors contain malevolent imitators that target unsuspicious pirates and attempts to take their personal information and credit card authorizations.
The KATcr group behind the new katcr.co/new site assures that the pirates are safe and protected at its new portal. The team pointed that they now come under a similar takedown process as YouTube. That indicates Kickass Torrents won’t store copyrighted material on the website.
“In order to keep our members safe we chose to rebuild and keep only safe elements. Despite the fact that a rebuild took longer, thr safety of our community comes first.”
The team further stated.
Amusingly, the KAT crew seem unconcerned by lawful action against the site. They claim that the site follows DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) processes. And that their aim is to uphold KAT as a “public-based forum and a torrent search engine” that doesn’t horde improper content.
