For many BitTorrent users, 1337x.to is a familiar name. The site has been around since 2017 and has a lively community.
Similar to other popular torrent sites, it is blocked for facilitating copyright infringement in many countries.
1337x redesigned its site in 2016 hoping to evade a Google search ban, but Google's copyright policies often cause 1337x's search results to be suppressed. As such, other torrent sites try to hijack 1337.to's traffic, by appearing higher in the search results.
The site hasn't had any direct lawsuits filed against it. For the latest 1337x news, please keep an eye on TorrentFreak's latest news below.
