There seems to be a worldwide crackdown on piracy, as of late. Demonoid was once shut down by the Canadian Recording Industry Association, and then came back on the promise that Canadians could not access Demonoid. Unfortunately for anyone hoping for a fast and easy way to download that latest Linux distribution, the CRIA had a nasty surprise for the administrators of Demonoid. You can see the nasty surprise on the front page of the website.
The CRIA 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.This method of site shutdown, called "upstream takedown", was done in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright ActSource: DailyTech
