"We received a letter from a lawyer represeting [sic] the CRIA, they were threatening with legal action and we need to start blocking Canadian traffic because of this."
The CRIA (Wikipedia) (Canadian Recording Industry Association) is a lobbying firm backed by international music marketers.
Demonoid is held to be the second most popular BitTorrent tracker, after The Pirate Bay.
