For more than half a decade Diwana.org was serving TV-shows from Australia and New Zealand to a close community, but this ended abruptly a few hours ago.
The site’s owner told TorrentFreak that his web-hosting company Leaseweb was approached by the Dutch anti-piracy outfit BREIN. They were asked to shut down the site.
This is nothing new as BREIN does the same to hundreds of other sites each year, but Diwana’s operator decided not to be chased or threatened and closed the site.
He tells his story in full on the site’s homepage.
Diwana had 40,214 members and listed 34,295 torrents. The first torrent was uploaded in March 2006.
