Submission + - "Cash for Clunkers" Program Ends On Monday (philly.com)

Looce writes: U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced today that the "Cash for Clunkers" program, also known as the Car Allowance Rebate System, would end at 8 p.m. Monday because the $3 billion allotted for trade-ins has largely been depleted — two weeks earlier than expected. It had been anticipated that "Cash for Clunkers" would run until Labor Day. Rebate applications will not be accepted after 8 p.m., he said, and dealers should not make further sales without receiving all the necessary paperwork from their customers. Dealers will be able to resubmit rejected applications after the deadline.

Submission + - Demonoid Going Down For Canadians (torrentfreak.com)

Looce writes: TorrentFreak.com reports that people outside Canada will now see on the Demonoid.com homepage a news story saying:

We received a letter from a lawyer representing 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.
... and people in Canada will see this instead, without the site navigation:

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. If you reside in Canada, that is the reason you are being redirected to this message. Thanks for your understanding, and sorry for any inconvenience.
The CRIA is the Canadian Recording Industry Association, an equivalent to the RIAA.
