The loss of OiNK

The disappearance of OiNK from the filesharing community is going to have major and far-reaching implications. HTTP filesharing indexing sites like will become more popular; this may lead to legal action against some of the sites it points to. We'll see an increase in traffic to mp3 blogs and forums, which generally post their files on the same sites indexed by places like shareminer.

Overall, expect fragmentation in the filesharing community with more people using a wider variety of sources to get their files.
