It appears that UK site TV-Links.co.uk (now defunct), has been shut down by anti-piracy groups in a raid on the owner's home - which was sieged by Federation Against Copyright Theft (FACT) for piracy of movies, and tv shows. The scary part is that this site was not hosting the actual content, but encouraging users to upload and share them on the site.

The biggest contributing factor to the raid, was that TV-Links was making money off of the pirated videos by posting banners along side the links to the videos (which were played within a modified TV-Links embedded player). The webmaster has been arrested, and it is yet unknown the fate of other such sites that operate in this field.

The TV-Links site (http://www.tv-links.co.uk) site is down, it has most likely entered the custody of F.A.C.T. and will probably in time either expire or be redirected to an anti-piracy site. If it does expire, that would mean a seemingly valuable domain is up for grabs - one with traffic, and pagerank that surely spammers would be remiss to grab as quickly as possible.

I have commented on numerous blog now because of the amount of totally bad information on tv links.

YES the owner did get arrested but was released as long as he didn't use the tv link .co .uk domain name, which is kinda fair enough, and that domain wont be touched for the foreseeable future.

The new owner from the uk has actually started up a new website though. Which can be found below
