Bulgaria shuts down torrent sites
Bulgarian police have shut down four popular torrent websites in its largest ever action against Internet piracy.
The file sharing websites - nanoset.net, rapidadd.com, 4storing.com and afasta.com - were accused of illegally distributing books, films, games, music and software. Said to be run by an organised crime network, the four sites were probed for several months before their closure.
According to Bulgarian police users paid a total E2.5m in fees to get access to these services.
