BT Tracker Demonoid Gets WTFBBQPWNT Again?

Torrent tracker site supreme, Demonoid, has allegedly been shut down again, this time by the Canadian Recording Industry Association.  This isn't the first time in recent history the Demonoid has gone off the air, having moved from the Netherlands to avoid legal threats there.

Demois, the site operator, has yet to be heard from since the site went down about 24 hours ago:

Unfortunately, it now seems that Canada is not the “safe haven” as they expected it to be. It is likely that Demonoid has to relocate again, for the second time in three months.

Demonoid tracks over a million .torrent files and is the second largest BitTorrent tracker after The Pirate Bay. The shutdown of the site and tracker is a huge blow for the BitTorrent community that lost 2 of the most popular BitTorrent trackers (TorrentBox was taken offline for US users a few hours ago) within 24 hours.
