Submission + - World's Biggest Pirate Music Site Shutdown (

Mike writes: "The world's largest pre-release pirate site "OiNK" was shutdown in a raid on Tuesday according to British and Dutch police. Interpol-coordinated raids followed a two-year investigation by the British Phonographic Industry and the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry bodies. "This was not a case of friends sharing music for pleasure. This was a worldwide network that got hold of music they did not own the rights to and posted it online", said Jeremy Banks, head of the IFPI's Internet anti-piracy unit."
