BTJunkie shuts down.
After the protests against SOPA/PIPA, the current protests against ACTA, the Canadian SOPA of C-11, the new H.R. 1981 Internet snooping bill making rounds though American government, the prosecution of thepiratebay founders, the arrests of 7 Megaupload owners/employees, the take down of Megaupload by the FBI, and the numerous self shutdowns and blocking of upload and file sharing sites, it looks like another big name site is shutting down.
This is a self shutdown not a government take down.
Not much is known as to why but its safe to assume that it has to do with everything mention above or someone got to them and made them do it.
