As we reported earlier, lots of things related to file sharing in Sweden changed with the Pirate Bay verdict. Some trackers shut down completely and some underwent changes. TTi.nu (The Internationals), which was one of the best General/0Day private trackers with lots of scene and p2p releases (most of them copyrighted material) has turned into a BitTorrent tracker with only legal music torrents. In order to get more exposure to the ‘new’ TTi, public signups and invites for existing members have been re-opened.
All older torrents have been deleted from TTi and they are currently left with only 39 torrents in the database. This however is sill a huge tracker in terms of the number of registered users – there are over 23000 of em. As for the content, the following should explain what you can expect from TTi in the future (quoted from a news post on site homepage):
From now on, TTi will only concentrate on bands/artists that want to spread their material on the Internet and waiting for a record contract. As you might have noticed, we have had our own music releases with bands that want to be spread around the Internet, hoping for a record label to spot them for quite some time. Because of all the turbulence and insecurity about whether it's okay to run a tracker or not, we have now decided to go full out on bands that want to be discovered through the Internet.
And given below is a screenshot of some of the torrents currently tracked by TTi:
Although the decision to become a legal site might not be a popular one among members, it’s still a lot better than closing the entire site down IMHO. If you want to show your support to TTi and want to discover some music not found anywhere else, go ahead and create an account. And if you are looking for a place to release your music and gain more publicity for your creations, you now know where to go.

By the way I’m just curious to see what will happen if Pirate Bay verdict is reversed due to a possible mistrial. Will all the trackers that shut down come back online, giving Antipiratbyran the finger?
