+ - UK Law Enforcement Starts Seizing Music Blogs->

Submitted by Grumbleduke
Grumbleduke (789126) writes "Via Dajaz1 (a site that is no stranger to unjustified copyright takedowns) we learn that the popular R&B website rnbxclusive.com (warning: threatening message on site) has allegedly been seized by SOCA, a UK law enforcement agency, and its operators arrested on fraud charges.

Not only does the replacement message contain a number of factually dubious claims, it also shows the visitor's IP address, browser and operating system, and threatens to track and monitor them.

At a time when copyright lobby groups are strongly pushing for even greater powers through laws such as SOPA and ACTA, one is left wondering why they think they need them, when police can shut down websites such as this at will."
