What really happened to SuprNova.org

— 9:32 AM on December 20, 2005

File-sharing site SuprNova.org went offline one year ago today, and rumors about the cause of its demise have swirled since. Now, the guy behind the site has given an account of the events leading up to the site's closing and the continuing legal fallout:

About a month later, after SuprNova.org had been taken offline, there was a door bell at 6:30 in the morning, saying it's the police. Actually I was not expecting anything anymore, since SuprNova.org had been taken offline long before that. They showed me a court order to search my place and they did so. They took as far as I remember, two of my computers and lots of documents.
He's also posted a copy of the latest letter he received from prosecutors, which appears to let him off the hook.
