Apparently, the site is still running. They just moved their servers and are not going to shut down.

The result is under review because he belonged to a few pro-copyright organizations along with the prosecutors.

It might be interesting if OTM investigated Obama's filesharing stance. It might be interesting if OTM investigation whether any RIAA attorneys have found high positions in the DOJ. Nope, let's have more Fox News opinion pieces.
