Submission + - Oink Shutdown: Myths Exploded->

g0zer, the destructor writes: "The recent shutdown of music torrent site Oink had the media in a feeding frenzy, alleging that the site owners collected lucrative subscription fees and were key players in the distribution of pre-release recordings. Oink's users were confused by these claims, shocked by the misinformation spread by the IFPI and BPI, international siblings of the RIAA. Why did even the BBC's story appear to be cut and pasted from the IFPI's press release? The site's primary administrator was released without being charged and no-one appears to have run corrections to Tuesday's news. Perhaps the IFPI should have considered whether any charges could actually stick before making the claims they did."
