    Default llegal Torrent Site OiNK Busted by Police

    Bad news for people who like illegal free music has come this morning, as the popular torrent-sharing network OiNK has been shut down by British and Dutch police, according to a BBC report. The home of a 24-year-old IT worker from Middlesbrough, England, was raided, as was his place of employment ("a large multi-national company") and his father's home. OiNK's servers, located in Amsterdam, were also seized. The IT worker, allegedly the mastermind of the operation, "is being questioned on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud and infringement of copyright law," the BBC says.

    OiNK was an invitation-only service in which membership was maintained by the consistent sharing of new music torrents. The more tunes you uploaded, the better your standing. Monetary donations were also encouraged.
    According The Northern Echo, OiNK boasted up to 180,000 members. The BBC reports that the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) claims that OiNK was responsible for leaking "60 major pre-release albums this year alone."

    Hahahaha. YES!!!! Fuck you thiefs and harlots. What they need to do is turn over the database names and information to the Federal Bureau of Investigations and voila! Five [5] year federal pen stints for EVERYONE who used Oink in the United States of America. 250,000$ fines all around to.

    I wouldn't visit Supre, but I'd maybe stop by to drop him off Coachella 08 pictures as well as some astroglide for his anus.

    Delta~ You really are an asshole, aren't you?
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    I dont know what it takes for big content to figure this out. Once pandora's box has been opened you can't close it. Look how well Comcast is doing with their traffic shaping. There is already significant discussion and people working on ways to beat it. Same thing with P2P, DVD encryption, and on and on. As soon as someone puts up a gate, someone else will find a key.

    If anything the shutdown of these sites just makes the -AA's job harder since all these Oink users are now fragmented across other sites and services. All they do is just fragment and drive these activities into places its harder and harder for them to keep track of.

    Plus I only deal in roio's anyways.

    Delta hasn't a fucking clue what he's talking about as usual.
    Oink was used to share more than illegal copyrighted material. A list of users doesn't mean shit. It's just a scare tactic.

    However anyone who did use it to download major releases is pretty fucking stupid.

    This whole stupid raid bullshit is just a gesture to appease american media companies.

    Yes, people who boasted RIGHT ON THIS FORA about illegally downloading records before their proper release from Oink are pretty stupid.

    With that being said, if you think they are just going to throw all the data from this soon to be brutally ass raped guy's servers away, you're grossly mistaken. You can go ahead and imagine yourself perfectly safe, never in danger of prosecution, while you listen to your Gym Class Heroes mp3 files, but when your pussy ass is getting raped in prison, I will be lol'ing.

    More like an admitted desire to see drug users freed from prisons and put into rehab, while white collar thieves and intraweb criminals put away with rapists and other violent criminals.

    I've never been a fan of the whole centralized site idea.

    BitTorrent is better fractioned off into more than one site, organized together by a search engine.

    Every BitTorrent user should upload to more than one site to protect themselves. If OiNK wasn't so self-serving then we wouldn't have lost so much now.

    Not to mention, this site wasn't exactly a joy to use. Seeding after downloading was practically useless - the chances of someone downloading more than 50k from you were slim to none.

    Bigger, less exclusive and egotistical sites like Demonoid have a much healthier and easier system. You download, seed for a day and you'll almost certainly have made up the ratio.

    OiNK wasn't valuable - it's users were. As long as those users are smart enough to keep on going and upload to the rest of the web - we'll all be better off.
