KickassTorrents has been kicked from its latest ccTLD after relocating to the .IM (Isle of Man) ccTLD. The world's leading torrent sharing website was only able to use the ccTLD of the British crown dependency for less than 24 hours.
But .im was probably never a good choice given its rules include "suspension or withdrawal of a domain name [can occur] should [the registry] consider for any reason the domain name is being used for an improper purpose to include anything illegal".

"We as the IM Domain Registry wish to make it very clear that we do not tolerate copyright infringement and withdrew the domain name from service at: 09:36 this morning," a representative said in an email to The Independent commenting on the takedown.
