The Motion Picture Association of America is claiming a major victory in the battle against illicit file sharing with the shutdown of a key server used to index content on the eDonkey2000 network. Razorback2 was the largest centralized server and was used by over 1 million file swappers.

The server's operator was arrested in Switzerland while the computers were seized from a hosting facility near Brussels. The MPAA heralded the arrest in a statement, saying the man's home was also searched for more information on those keeping eDonkey's 3.5 million-user P2P network running.

Even with the shutdown of Razorback2, however, eDonkey isn't likely to disappear any time soon. A decentralized method of indexing files on the network called Kademila, or KAD, has begun to pick up steam. The technology has been shown to outperform eDonkey2000's basic system for transferring large files.
