Transmission Blocklist

The Transmission torrent client has an option to set a Blocklist, which helps protect you from getting caught and having the DMCA send a letter/email.

It's as simple as downloading and installing the latest client:

After installing, navigate through the menu: Edit > Preferences > Privacy:

I have never had an issue using this list without registering: http://list.iblocklist.com/?list=bt_level1&fileformat=p2p&archiveformat=gz

Thanks for this. Still working as of this writing...

This seems to work quite well: https://github.com/fonic/ipfilter

Only downside is that you need a server to provide the file as Transmission still hasn't implemented support for local blocklist files. I put the script on my NAS, which generates the block list and then serves it to local clients via HTTP. Works perfectly thus far.
