MPAA Rejoices Over eDonkey Shutdown

The Motion Picture Association of America is claiming a major victory in the battle against illicit file sharing with the shutdown of a key server used to index content on the eDonkey2000 network. Razorback2 was the largest centralized server and was used by over 1 million file swappers.

The server's operator was arrested in Switzerland while the computers were seized from a hosting facility near Brussels. The MPAA heralded the arrest in a statement, saying the man's home was also searched for more information on those keeping eDonkey's 3.5 million-user P2P network running.
