Movie2K, one of the world’s most popular movie streaming portals, disappeared without trace this afternoon.
Update May 31: Here
Following action by the Motion Picture Association, earlier this month the UK High Court ordered local ISPs to block subscriber access to Movie2K.
The censorship effort was quickly circumvented, with existing Pirate Bay proxy services stepping up to unblock the site.
Earlier today, however, all Movie2K proxy services broke down when the Movie2K site itself disappeared from the Internet without warning.
For a while the site began redirecting to Google but now fails to respond in any way.
TorrentFreak contacted the site’s operators hours ago but we have yet to hear back, which is unusual since they are normally quite responsive.
Twitter is alive with rumors that the site has been shut down in a raid, but at this stage there are no credible sources for those claims.
As soon as we hear anything more we’ll post an update here or if the situation is more serious, on our main page in the hours to come.This post is from the News Bits section of TorrentFreak where we present stories from around the web in a concise summary format.
