Demonoid Shut Down By Ukrainian Government To Celebrate A Visit From The US

| August 6, 2012 | Reply

Demonoid is a great private torrent site. It’s always been invite only and you must keep a good share/download ratio to be part of the fun. They site has gone through some downtime while switching servers due to shutdowns before. This time the Ukraine has shut the site down just a day before the US was set to visit. I guess our friends to the East want us to know they are serious about piracy, if we are coming. the good news is that Demonoids servers weren’t taken. The colo company that provided service to the site was forced to end their contract with the site but was not ordered to give the servers to the government. I am sure Demonoid will find a new place to set up in a short amount of time. But thank you once again United States for just making me use a different site to find my perfectly legal torrents of copywrite free materials!
