Submission + - OiNK raided and shutdown by Dutch police

Stony Stevenson writes: British and Dutch police have shut down one of the world's largest sources of illegal pre-release music on Tuesday and arrested a 24-year-old man. The raids in Amsterdam and the northeast English city of Middlesbrough followed a two-year investigation into a members-only Web site, www.OiNK.cd, which allowed users to upload and download albums before their release.

An estimated 180,000 members paid 'donations' via debit or credit cards for OiNK's catalogue of music and other media.
