CRIA targets What.CD and SumoTracker

CRIA targets What.CD and SumoTracker The Canadian ISP MoxioColo has been served with cease and desist orders from CRIA to shut down the popular torrent sites What.cd, SumoTorrent, BTMon and FullDls.
CRIA, the Canadian equivalent of the RIAA, was in the news last year as well for getting Demonoid closed down after it had moved to a Canadian ISP.

This time it seems that the ISP is not going to back down however, and Sean Corbin, CEO of Moxie Communications added "We will not be following the request and will be fighting for the rights of our clients as to date laws in Canada protect them. We have looked into the matter and from what we understand these sites are not breaking any laws in Canada. If we do not comply they might bring legal action against Moxie Communications, as they believe without us these sites could not do what they do so therefore we are as bad as they are.

Back to you CRIA.

Demonoid didn't stay down. :) But the CRIA did have them closed down for a while.

Maybe killed was too strong a word. ;)

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Lets renegotiate them.

It's just desperation on the cria's part because the MPAA and the RIAA and the US gov't is trying to force their values and morality on our country. They all want the consumers to be nothing more than puppets to a regime that only cares about big business.

'nuff said

The cria is a bunch of idiots if they really wanted to go after something in canada then they should go after the illegal satelite tv stealers that are stealing music through there tivo and dvr set boxes. if your music was so good that people wanted to purchase it then they would but if your music sucks then people are going to illegally download the music and tell you off and i would keep fighting because they have no right to go after the isp it is not the isp's fault someone decided to build a torrent site from there server.
