Feds Seize KickassTorrents Domains, Arrest Alleged Owner

I wanted to make a "owner of KickassTorrents arrested, heading to PoundassPrison" joke but the article does say he is the "alleged" owner and I don't want to make fun of the wrong guy. I also noticed that Apple and Facebook had a hand in helping catch the guy.

The U.S. Government has arrested the alleged owner of KickassTorrents, the world's largest torrent site. The 30-year-old Ukrainian was arrested in Poland today and is charged with criminal copyright infringement and money laundering. In addition, a federal court in Chicago has ordered the seizure of several KAT domain names.
