TheRequiem13 writes: "You can see the different descriptions of events and situation from various sources, but the jist of it is:

British and Dutch police shut down what they say is one the world's biggest online sources of pirated music Tuesday and arrested the Web site's 24-year-old suspected operator.

The IFPI said more than 60 major albums were leaked on OiNK so far this year, making it the primary source worldwide for illegal prerelease music.

The page left up is reminiscent of the EliteTorrents shutdown a couple of years ago."
