Two weeks ago raids and arrests in several European countries took out several prominent websites. Aside from the main target, movie streaming links portal Kino.to, the raids also affected several file-hosting sites including Duckload.com. Despite taking a big hit Duckload is not giving up. Instead, the site has respawned with a full-blown movie streaming site that’s already generating millions of page views a day.

This week’s raids against Kino.to led to many arrests and the rapid disappearance of many cyberlocker services, including Duckload.com. As an uploader to Kino.to reveals how he worked with the site, Anonymous have added more chaos to the mix by DDoSing the Hollywood-backed anti-piracy group responsible for the raid.
In what appears to be a memo sent to ISPs by the regulator of Internet industries in Malaysia, all service providers have been ordered to completely block various file-sharing sites including The Pirate Bay, MegaVideo and other hosting services. The move follows an April statement by the country’s Prime Minister in which he promised his administration would never censor the Internet.
