Another big blow for pirates, the very popular file sharing service Demonoid is gone, forever. Last week only the site had gone under a massive DDoS attack. But on Monday, it was made official that the website has been removed by the Ukrainian government. Ukraine had always wanted to improve its image in front of US and to clarify that they too are strict over infringement issues.
ColoCall, the largest datacenter in Ukraine, which also was providing service to the Demonoid was investigated. Later on they copied all the data from their servers and sealed it.
Talking about the site’s reputation and functionality, the site was among the top 1000 websites in the world and within 300 in United States. It had been catering millions of users worldwide.
Demonoid.me was more of an indexing website and it wasn’t hosting any copyright infringement data.
Despite being down, the founder and administrator of the websites are still cool and out of any trouble, the site may come back, even more strongly this time with some different webhost and domain address.
Since it was just an indexing website, the pirates still have a lot of alternate services to choose from. But after btjunkies and torrific's demise, the torrent lovers have been losing their safe heaven now and then.
