About TorrentFreak

TorrentFreak is a publication dedicated to bringing the latest news about copyright, privacy, and everything related to filesharing. We are not a news aggregator but focus on unique and fresh stories. TorrentFreak is where news and filesharing collide. We try to be the source of all the latest breaking news in the p2p world. Every year we also publish an in-depth review of VPN services.


TorrentFreak was founded by Ernesto Van Der Sar and is incorporated as TF Publishing. February 2007, we welcomed Andy Maxwell to our team. Together with Ernesto, he is now responsible for 99% of the articles. We occasionally feature articles from guest writers. You can contact us through a variety of options.
