The truth about the Suprnova.org Shutdown
On the 19th of December of 2004 the widely known and popular bittorrent portal/tracker was shutdown. Many speculated it was from pressure from recording labels and/or movie industry. Turns out it was none of that, and given the story explained by Andrej Preston I don’t think anyone would have done differently. One year after the shutdown of SuprNova, comes a detailed story of what exactly happened.
On November 2004, I received a call from my ISP saying that all of my servers had been raided by the police. I received nothing from the police before or after the raid, nobody told me what was going on.
From there onwards things got worse and more complicated for him, and thankfully the story has a happy ending.
Even though he posted this last year, I don’t think it got enough spotlight, so I think it would be a good idea to bring this to a wider audience to prove to all those that gave bad speculations about him and his reasons.
