News sources here in the UK are reporting of another piracy site shut down by police, and its owner arrested. OiNK is a subscription-only site which shares pre-released music for a fee (never ‘eard of it meself, subtle name though). The man has been arrested “on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud and infringement of copyright law”.
I have no qualms whatsoever in applauding such actions, I have no sympathy for subscription websites that charge for services that are never transferred to artists. The difference to cases such as TV-Links is evident. TV-Links and similar aggregators provide links to content hosted elsewhere, while services like OiNK host the content and charge for access to it.
Update: Apparently, news reports were wrong and OiNK is not a subscription service. I’m happy to admit when I’ve been wrong and withdraw the above comment.
