Demonoid.com Shut Down by CRIA

LoArmistead - November 9, 2007 11:19AM in Internet, General News

Next in the list of a world-wide crackdown on torrent sites, Demonoid.com was forced offline entirely today after the Canadian Recording Institute of America (CRIA) forced them offline in Canada not long ago. The frontpage of Demonoid now contains the following message: "The CRIA threatened the company renting the servers to us, and because of this it is not possible to keep the site online. Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your understanding." With the CRIA threatening to legally pursue any hosting company that rents out to torrent sites, it is doubtful that Demonoid will be able to find a host willing to fend off the wolves.
