Before we get started, SOCA stands for Serious Organized Crimes Agency, which makes them sound pretty badass in our opinion.

Anyway...SOCA have shutdown RnBXclusive and replaced the content with a pretty serious looking message, which reads as follows:


SOCA has taken control of this domain name.

The individuals behind this website have been arrested for fraud. The majority of music files that were available via this site were stolen from the artists If you have downloaded music using this website you may have committed a criminal offence which carries a maximum penalty of up to 10 years imprisonment and an unlimited fine under UK law.

SOCA has the capability to monitor and investigate you, and can inform your internet service provider of these infringements. You may be liable for prosecution and the fact that you have received this message does not preclude you from prosecution.

As a result of illegal downloads young, emerging artists may have had their careers damaged. If you have illegally downloaded music you will have damaged the future of the music industry.


Who will be next?
