Police Arrest Six in Connection With Private Torrent Sites & Seedboxes
Following criminal referrals by anti-piracy group Rights Alliance, authorities in Denmark have arrested six men believed to be “ringleaders” or central staff at torrent sites including DanishBytes and ShareUniversity. Police have seized computers and other IT equipment plus money claimed to be profits from the supply of seedboxes.

In October 2020, private torrent tracker DanishBits went offline after the 33-year-old owner was arrested in Morocco. He was later sentenced to a year in prison.
NordicBits was also taken down after its 69-year-old owner was arrested in Spain. He sadly passed away after an illness but other sites were also in the spotlight. Asgaard quickly opened its doors to new members but then shut down to avoid legal trouble.
