Isohut's page was pulled by its US-based ISP, apparently due to a suit filed by the MPAA. It now has an ISP based out of Canada for their temporary page.
This is obviously nothing like being raided like TPB was, but still, one more step towards clearing this stuff out for good...

The RIAA and MPAA will give it their best, though.

Not up yet, but apparently they're doing a huge upgrade too. Hopefully they aren't having more legal troubles...

It seems like when organizations reach a certain size, they get a really distorted perception of how much power they actually have in the world. Internet > MPAA
