Greece: 6 arrested in file-sharing crackdown
ATHENS, Greece — Police say six people have been arrested in a crackdown on a popular Greek Web site that aided free Internet downloads of copyrighted music, movies and video games.
Police said Wednesday that the raids in Athens and three other towns targeted the homes of the alleged operators of the site gamato.info. The site indexes BitTorrent files. It was not working Wednesday.
The suspects were arrested Tuesday, after a Greek copyright protection organization filed a law suit against the operators of the site.
