Music Linking Site Raided By Dept. of Homeland Security / ICE

• TorrentFreak
A large file-sharing link site dedicated to rap and hiphop music and news has been raided by the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The servers of RapGodFathers, a site with close to 150,000 members, were seized and moves put in place to take over its domain name. Following raids earlier in the year which took out several sites and domain names connected to the streaming of Hollywood movies, we can now report fresh Department of Homeland Security / Immigration and Customs Enforcement action against a site in the music sector. Acting on a search warrant issued on 23rd November and signed by United States Magistrate Judge Jeff Kaplan, DHS and ICE agents arrived at a Dallas datacenter Tuesday with orders to take down the 146,500 member RapGodFathers site (RGF), seize its servers and gather evidence on its owners, administrators and moderators. {This relates to Homeland Security & ICE, how?]

Quit hosting pirate sites on US or US-friendly servers FFS. This is a simple concept. A less-simple-but-still-pretty-simple concept: use i2p or some other current-generation technology that obscures the source and destination of the data beyond the budgetary reach of copyright enforcement agencies. The US government (and most others) are already broke, they can't afford to persecute pirates who use a tiny bit of protection.
