Never been a fan of Demonoid myself, but in some ways it was better than mininova.

The CRIA is a scam who claim to be actually representing Canadian artists. It's basically...Sony. A Japanese/American company just trying to suck money out of another country.

Yeah, the CRIA is such a sham. They're not even owned by canadian companies, they're owned by subsidieries of american companies in Canada. So really, they're acting in the best interest of companies in the US, rather than the best interests of the industry in Canada. None of the profits of these companies come to Canada. The only thing that does is the income taxes that these companies pay.

By law, however, they have a right to sue anyone helping in uploading content to the internet that is sold in Canada. Only downloading is protected here.
All they need to do is move servers, because it seems the CRIA is not going to back off. However, it can't do squat if the server's not on Canadian soil.

That being said, the only thing that had restricted access to Canadian visitors was the website. The trackers were still active for Canadian users. Throughout all this time, you could have just been using an outside-Canada proxy for the website. Didn't think of doing that, did ya? :D

EDIT: and yeah, i have to admit, Demonoid is not the best tracker, because it has pretty limited users, not being open to the public and all ... but it is good to find some little bits that you can't find on any other trackers. It's good for rare files overall, you could find those on specialized trackers, but the download speeds and rules would be a bit stiff on those.
