In brief SOCA (Serious Organised Crime Agency) hailed the success of an operation against music blog RnBXclusive, which provided links to illegal music downloads. The agency took down the site, posting in its place a warning to people using the site for downloads that they could face up to 10 years in jail.
in the article, David Allen Green questioned why the agency is taking part in what is effectively a copyright enforcement case. "It is not clear why SOCA are involved, and it seems odd that they are using a Heath Robinson combination of contract and conspiracy law," Green said. "The alarmist web page they have used to replace the site taken down is preposterous and makes SOCA look frankly ridiculous."
