BitTorrent Creator to Launch Search Engine

BitTorrent Creator to Launch Search Engine: "The program, developed by Cohen in 2001, looks for torrent files _ digital markers that it needs to assemble complete files from multiple bits of data obtained from other computer users.

Locating the torrents, however, requires finding host sites. And while Cohen himself has not been a target of government or the film and music industries' piracy watchdogs, some operators of Web sites hosting tracker files have been forced to shut down.

Users of the BitTorrent search engine should have an easier time finding the torrent files, wherever they are.

'The goal is to get every single torrent on the Internet indexed,' Cohen said."
