Submission + - CRIA Brings Down Demonoid

Voline writes: As of 09:15 GMT the popular, private, Bittorrent-tracking site, Demonoid, is offline. Attempting to load the site results in blank white page with only the following text on it:

"The CRIA [Canadian Recording Industry Association] 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."
Demonoid had previously moved it's servers to Canada from the Netherlands to avoid legal threats there.
