UK man arrested in P2P raid

From yesterday's Guardian,
"A British man has been arrested for his role in running one of the internet's oldest file sharing websites.

The man - who started the FileSoup website in 2003 - was taken into custody last week after a raid on his home in Taunton, Somerset, and subsequently released on bail without charge...

When contacted by the Guardian, the man verified that he had been arrested last Monday, but refused to comment further without consulting a lawyer.

However, in a posting on FileSoup itself, he detailed the situation - including how police seized a number from his home, including mobile phones, computers, hard drives and a video camera."
