Mininova does not host any copyrighted content or torrents that allow users to download copyrighted content on its website, the organization states. In addition, Mininova offers a service that enables copyright holders to request removal of torrents.
A court ruling in 2009 forced Mininova to remove any torrents that enabled the download of copyrighted content from its website, as reported by TorrentFreak. The company now hosts torrents for legally licensed content, as of 2015. After appealing the verdict, Mininova reached a financial settlement with the Dutch antipiracy group BREIN. The site lost most of its traffic after complying with the court.
