+ - Demonoid Torrent Tracker Blocking Canadian Users

Submitted by rebmemeR
rebmemeR (1056120) writes "Demonoid had been offline for the previous 6 days but resumed operations last night. Rumors about the cause of the outage were indeterminate. The site now displays the following note.

"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."

The CRIA (Wikipedia) (Canadian Recording Industry Association) is a lobbying firm backed by international music marketers. Demonoid is held to be the second most popular BitTorrent tracker, after The Pirate Bay."

One can't proceed from the informal to the formal by formal means.

Working...
