Mininova Ordered to Filter Torrents reports that Mininova is dead, must filter torrents. A judge has ordered the site to either pay 5m Euro or delete copyrighted torrents:

Mininova notably removed links if copyright holders flagged them, but as with all trackers, when one went down, five would take its place, making the whole situation redundant.

It's not dead just yet, and lets be honest, once it is, one of the other sites on the net will rise up to take it's place, just as it once did to replace
