Submission + - Demonoid back up, now blocking Canada

An anonymous reader writes: TorrentFreak has an update to the Demonoid story from last week. From the article, "The popular BitTorrent tracker Demonoid is back online after nearly a week of downtime. The website and the tracker are hosted on the same ISP, but Canadian traffic is blocked thanks to pressure from the Canadian Recording Industry Association (CRIA)". If you are a Canadian resident, you will now be redirected to this Demonoid page which has the following message: "We received a letter from a lawyer represeting [sic] the CRIA, they were threatening with legal action and we need to start blocking Canadian traffic because of this. If you reside in Canada, that is the reason you are being redirected to this message. Thanks for your understanding, and sorry for any inconvenience". It looks like TorrentFreak was right all along, Demonoid was indeed (temporarly) shut down by the CRIA.
