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.

Well ain't that a kick in the stones frown.gif.

So Apple provided information to have this guy arrested, yet refused to do anything when asked to get information from a terrorist's phone? Absolutely disgusting.

Probably because KAT had paid for software for Mac and iOS on that anyone could download. The terrorists phone didn't.
