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 independently incorporated. February 2007, we welcomed Andy to our team. Together with Ernesto, he is now responsible for 99% of the articles. The TorrentFreak crew also includes our community manager Ben Jones and our readers.


TorrentFreak was featured on mainstream news outlets such as CNN, The Wall Street Journal, New York Times the BBC, the Guardian and the LA Times.
