Swedish University Involved in Topsite Crackdown

The recently reported bust is becoming more interesting with new details surfacing. It turns out that the largest Swedish university got involved in the crackdown. Besides, this information is emerging with scene notices surfacing where it seems that finger-pointing has begun.


The earlier news about the coordinated crackdown conducted in 14 European countries was mainly about the possible reason of the action, i.e. the websites like The Pirate Bay or Wikileaks, hosted by the Swedish Pirate Party. However, today some new light can be shed on the previous report. It turns out, Umea University (the largest Swedish university) also suffered in the raids conducted by police, which insisted that the action was not about Wikileaks but rather about conducting an anti-piracy sweep.

At the same time, scene notices are now surfacing indicating that some finger pointing is happening now, with people demanding that scene-related activity has to be secure by posting their warnings on public websites, which is not so wise. Still, it’s clear that the general concern amongst the scene is security, which is justified considering what happened. Meanwhile, if one reads through the notices, they can get the impression that the scene is really huge – up to the hundreds of thousands of people. Besides, one can now and again see NFO’s of users complaining about spending a good deal of time to track someone down for things like spamming certain channels.

Actually, here can be an answer – the great number of people. In fact, experts in security would say that the weakest part of it is the human element, or, in this case, a numbers matter. Let’s imagine we have a group of 3 people. This number of participants can make us able keep a secret group pretty well locked down for sure. Let’s say we have 5 people – then, if suddenly the information leaks, it would be easy to track the responsible person down. Let’s say 10 – and security becomes difficult to control. Let’s say 50 – and chances are, someone will join that we don’t want. Let’s say 100 – and the risk becomes huge. Now, imagine 50,000 and see what happened in the scene recently.

However, even if these were only low-level top websites, they still had to come about from someone higher up, which brings us to another assumption: if one low-level website could be created, then others can be too, via alternative means, making it an infinite cycle for the MPAA, RIAA and the digital world members.
