    Users warned as RnBXclusive.com shut down by police ~ BBC

    A takedown notice warned visitors who have used the site to download music they could face up to 10 years imprisonment and an unlimited fine.

    Soca said music posted on the site was "stolen from the artists" and may have "damaged careers".

    A man has been arrested for fraud and bailed pending further enquiries, police told the BBC.

    A sledgehammer to crack a nut eh SOCA?

    "Members of the public can become facilitators of organised crime by obtaining property or services from its perpetrators”

    ~ Soca statement


    Let's hope SOCA aim better than SO 19. :eek:
