16 (a “meta-search” engine, which basically means is a search engine that can find other search engines)

17 (Unfortunately, as March 24, 2008 Torrentspy choose to cease its activity. Rather than comply to the American court demands to change their privacy policies, the Torrentspy crew preferred to end its own course)

18 (a notable bittorrent meta-search engine capable to search a number of the most well-known sites. However, the way it categorize the torrent files leaves a lot of room for improvement)
