    On June 23, 2010 the group Piratbyrån disbanded due to the death of Ibi Kopimi Botani, a prominent member and co-founder of the group and a torrent site. So basically +1 for anti-piracy. Despite this i am always sad to hear of someones death.

    It's against the rules to name torrent sites.

    um that sucks he died but the site is still up and running(although its kind of buggy atm) also i think it would be disrespectful to his memory to stop working on what he help start.

    Apparently the site in question was down for a while due to a power outage in the city that the servers are based in.

    The measures some Governments are taking eliminate piracy are just too extreme.
