IFPI takes down music release group The IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry) has announced that they have successfully raided two servers in Hungary that were home to the very popular music release group RAGEMP3.
The announcement also said that the raid disrupted another music release group, XXL. The raid was a joint action by the IFPI, Hungarian police, and ProArt (the local copyright traffic police).

No arrests have been made and the announcement said nothing about any long term consequences for the release groups. Most likely the organizations are nowhere near decimated and its possible that the servers were not the only ones used by the groups.

The release groups, otherwise known as top sites, are "the top tier hierarchy of the online distribution world." It is where releases begin and the point from which information "trickles" down to torrent sites, newsgroups, Warez forums and finally P2P.

Well this is just like those others CRIME. That's their job. I'm sure the other crimes will be dealt with but this is a crime that is growing because it gets easier and easier to access pirated software and other movies and what not. I dont know why people give these people bad reps for doing upholding the law.
