Police Raiding European 'Warez' Sites

This story is still breaking and the details are not just sketchy, but downright confusing, so I'll do my best to explain that a "crackdown" on so-called WAREZ sites is apparently taking place now across Europe, centered largely in Sweden. Pirate Bay and Wikileaks are said to be involved, though conflicting reports have spokespersons from those sites claiming they were only questioned by officers.

According to some sources, servers and computers have been seized, at least four individuals have been detained for questioning, or arrested, and similar raids are occurring in Great Britain, Germany, and elsewhere in Europe.

Some say this raid has been planned for some two years.
