Submitted by tMav
tMav (444855) writes "Today, eager music lovers all over the world woke up to discover that the popular BitTorrent tracker OiNK has been shut down. The BBC News is reporting the raid and the site now responds only with the increasingly familiar message:

A criminal investigation continues into the identities and activities of the site's users."
