when I try to go to metal-archives.com, I get the following :

FBI ANTI-PIRACY WARNING

This domain name associated with metal-archives.com has been seized pursuant to an order issued by the U.S District Court.

A Federal grand jury has indicted several individuals and entities allegedly involved in the operation of metal-archives.com and related websites charging them with the following federal crimes;

conspiracy to commit racketeering, conspiracy to commit copyright infringement, conspiracy to commit money laundering, and criminal copyright infringement


WTF? It's none of my business, but I thought I should make an inquiry and at least report that I have been seeing this. I have taken a screenshot, mostly for my own sake, so I can at least document that it is there. Don't mean to cause any issues but I am really confused. Those charges are strange? and why can we still use the site if it has been seized?
