We've seen in the past how various pirate sites have been shut down and their founders jailed (and their Bitcoins confiscated!). Megaupload, Silk Road, Pirate Bay (Yes, Pirate Bay still exists, sans Pirates) and so forth. Yes, kiddies, the powers-that-be in this world don't sit idly by and let people steal their shit, at least without getting a taste. So while Al Capone had quite a run, he was eventually gunned down. That's how it works. Very few mobsters actually "retire" in real life.
The fact that the media finds it great click-bait eye-candy doesn't change that.
