The tracker was taken down by local authorities in the Ukraine, and sources say the action was taken in conjunction with Deputy Prime Minister Valery Khoroshkovsky's upcoming trip to the United States. If accurate, it would seem the country is looking to get in the Obama administration's good graces in regards to copyright infringement.
Last week, the site was hit by a DDoS attack that took the tracker down for an extended period, which was actually a relief to many fans who thought it may be down for good.
Government agents arrived at Ukraine's largest data center, ColoCall, last week. They copied all the information from the Demonoid servers and then sealed them. ColoCall was then "forced to terminate the agreement with the site," says TorrentFreak.
There were no arrests made in connection with the take down.
