City of London Police inform TorrentFreak that they actually arrested the alleged owner of the domain names. The 20-year-old man from Nottingham was interviewed at a local police station and later released on bail.

Pending further investigation he agreed to voluntarily transfer the domains to the police.

This is the second arrest since the start of “Operation Creative” last year – the first involved the alleged admin of sports streaming site BoxingGuru. As is often the case, the police were assisted by Hollywood-backed anti-piracy group FACT.

According to Chief Inspector Andy Fyfe, the arrest is a prime example of a successful partnership between the copyright industry and local law enforcement.

“This week’s operation highlights how PIPCU, working in partnership with the creative and advertising industries is targeting every aspect of how copyrighting material is illegally being made available to internet users,” Fyfe says.

“We will come down hard on people believed to be committing or deliberately facilitating such offences,” he adds.

All this over mere "arrests" ...   :/

Its clear that legally the sites Fact and the city of london corporation private police force are targetting are operating in a legal grey area, they dont seem to have a cut and dry criminal case to throw at the site operator so instead they strong arm him, the real question here is when are they going to actually take someone to court and get a conviction as domain jacking, ad blocking and threats of civil action all seem very much weaker options, another case of the real-life action not matching the rhetoric ?
