Brein, which is like the Dutch version of RIAA, went and physically visited a server colo host and through intimidation and threats managed to get him to take the sites down. Under Dutch law, running a bittorrent site isn’t illegal. That’s currently being decided by the outcome of the Mininova lawsuit.
That these kind of strong arm tactics are permissible in Holland is disgraceful.
Basically Brein is behaving like a bunch of thugs.
