    Facing trouble from the Italian .it registry, the popular TV-torrent site EZTV has ditched its .it domain name. The impact of the intervention is relatively small, as EZTV has already found a new home at the Swiss domain http://eztv.ch

    Most recently EZTV ran into trouble with the Italian domain name registry NIC.it over some paperwork. Facing a possible confiscation of the EZTV.it domain name, they saw no other option than to switch to a new home.

    Without going into detail, EZTV's NovaKing tells TF that a complaint from copyright holders is likely to be the driving force behind the recent issues.
