No matter what - they are gone for now. But they where not stopped completely. Like I said before "it is a game!"...
Those countries do what they want to look good. Here in the States; we end it! Law breakers are punished and if they try again. Then they are punished even more or worse.
So now the guys that owned the site can even sell their stolen stuff to another law breaker. Thus they can get started again as another group with another name and such with more money to get what they want.
That judge did nothing but make more piracy. The guys that buy the site and start it back up again. Plus the past owners who will go do it again some place else.
I say bring them over here and allow the US to punish them. Take away everything that is not theirs to begin with and get rid of it completely. There should be extradition policies for these things. Thus those people would face charges here in the USA.
I do not agree with that stopping things by shutting them down rule. It never works! It has to be removed completely and put under lock and key or burned like trash.
I like the burning thing actually. We have this thing here about drug house's - we bust them and usually end up burning them down to the ground. It cleans up the mess they make. Too bad they don't burn the dealers with it though.
But that is my best answer... burn them down completely and be completely rid of it; softwares and anything else they used to do it with.
Burn baby Burn!
