OiNK users being charged


Almost one year after authorities shut down the private torrent tracker OiNK, the site’s administrators and a few alleged uploaders have been charged, putting an end to the year-long investigation.

Alan Ellis, the administrator, was charged with “conspiracy to defraud” and the uploaders were charged with copyright infringement for the unauthorized upload of one CD. [After Dawn]

“In other semi-related news, a 26 year old man was sentenced today to 18 months in prison, three years of supervised release and a $20,000 fine for his work on the site EliteTorrents – looks like it’s a bad week for torrent site admins.” [TechSpot]
