Hmmm.. this was posted on the Easytree site a few minutes ago....

Hello gals and guys,

We're very sorry having to tell you that we had to shut down EZT forever 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


I could understand when the likes of suprnova went down but EZT did not host any official materials? Sad news indeed.

Bollocks...

There all going this way. And they didn't share official stuff either! I hate the music industry...

Did anybody manage to download the Buenos Aires 1981 dvd off there? If so, could you please torrent it here. I was at about 80%.

The demise of EasyTree happened at a VERY similar time to QOLers being read toe riot act regarding unofficial bootlegs by admin.

Queen and U2 concerts were probably the most traded artists in recent weeks, and Bono has publically said he has no problem whatsoever with fans trading live shows for free.

So could EMI and Queen be directly to blame?

I'm still seeding that one.

Anybody downloaded Hyde Park? I've got some problems with the allocation of the files, can't burn it properly.

Thanks Crankenstein. I wasn't connected to buenos aires, when easytree went down, so i cant resume.
I have the Hyde Park DVD, but I dont know anything about allocation problems, cos' I dont have a dvd writer.

I have Hype Park, but honestly can't remember if I've burned it to DVD yet or not (can't keep track of what I have or finshed anymore) I don't think there was a problem though.

This blows, however their tracker is still online (atleast I'm uploading to peers)

Trader's Den is still out there, but seems to have taken a huge leap in traffic now (wonder why...)

EZT had a very strict policy on uploading official meterial... the torrents were banned very quickly!

Wonder what the powers that be, objected to?

Yeah, but that is only 1.8GB. The easytree one was 3.8GB. Please still upload if you can Crankenstein.

I was the uploader of Hyde Park on EZT, so I will see about uploading it here, tho I have no idea how...help anyone?

I think it is awful that they had to shut down. Why should the industry go after bootleg sites when there are still hundreds of proud piracy sites. It seems that piracy should be a much higher priority.


Could you please help me with the allocation issue?
I tried to burn this DVD, and all I could do is watch it from the start. No song selection or skipping etc.

Really? That is very strange because I watched the ripped version before I uploaded and it had a song selection menu.
I'm sorry, I don't know why you don't have it or how you can fix it.


The menu is shown, and I can select songs, but whenever I press play, it starts at the beginning :(

"We're very sorry having to tell you that we had to shut down EZT just a couple of minutes ago."

For some reason they edited their message - this time leaving out the "forever" bit... it previously read "shut down forever"

So perhaps they plan a return?
Or am clutching at straws?
