The servers went down yesterday but are back up with the 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.'

Submission + - Demonoid Back Up But Blocking Canadians

Cedon writes: Looks like the Canadian Recording Industry rumors were true in regards to Demonoid's shut down. The site is back up, confirming they have been threatened by CRIA and as a result are now blocking access to the site from Canadian IPs. Their latest news item states:

We received a letter from a lawyer represeting the CRIA, they were threatening with legal action and we need to start blocking Canadian traffic because of this. Thanks for your understanding, and sorry for any inconvenience.
Looks like Canadian users will have to start using international proxy servers.

Some people manage by the book, even though they don't know who wrote the book or even what book.
