Police Raid BitTorrent Tracker¦and Arrest its Hosting Provider

This week an operation led by a powerful anti-piracy group closed down a 6-year-old BitTorrent tracker.

The site had already been targeted following the verdict in the original Pirate Bay trial, but had quickly announced their intentions to go 100% legal. This week, however, people said to be behind the site were arrested. Most surprisingly, one of them was the owner of the company supplying them bandwidth.
