Smaller Swedish torrent trackers shut shop

Following the Pirate Bay judgement, a range of smaller Swedish based torrent sites have started to seal up their businesses and move on.

Music Ally is suggesting that this represents a sort-of victory for the music industry - but, seriously, did the IFPI and its associates really pour all that time and money into forcing MP3nerds off the internet?

The Pirate Bay remains afloat, and - apart from the less-than-valuable principle that Sweden might not be the best place to set up a torrent site - closing down a few hobbyists doesn't seem to be that wonderful an outcome.
