Pirate Bay Shut Down By Swedsh Court
« on: August 24, 2009, 05:27:27 pm »
Today the enevitable closure of the pirate bay took hold and whilst there have been reports of some backup systems in place working from only certain locations for most of of its users the bay is dead.

Today, Stockholm’s district court took action to completely remove The Pirate Bay from the Internet.
The court ordered the site’s major bandwidth supplier, Black Internet, to disconnect TPB from the Internet or face penalties of 500,000 kroner ($70,600). The ISP complied, saying that it had no choice but to uphold the law.

This comes on the same day that a Swedish Baliff confirmed that they bay crew have no revenue to pay off any fines etc so in effect they cant be forced to pay any fines imposed by the previous criminal court ruling except at perhaps a very small rate a week if they are working.

Media companies will struggle to grab any money owed by The Pirate Bay, as Sweden's official debt collector found that three of the four founders have "no attachable assets" in that country.


Update: Hot news in folks  :o

As expected, The Pirate Bay site relocated and is back online. A Pirate Bay insider told TorrentFreak that they “got a new connection to the net.” The tracker is still down and is expected to be fully operational tomorrow morning, we were told. Ever since their servers were raided back in 2006 they were prepared for takedown attempts like this.

“The MAFIAA has spent millions of dollars and endless amounts of time to get this ban in order. Our guess is that they also bribed a bit to get it since it violates so many laws not only in Sweden but also in the EU, not to mention violations against human rights. And what do they have to show for it? 3 hours of partial downtime,” the Pirate Bay team adds.


It seems the game of cat and mouse continues.

If they have a new connection to the net and have been prepared for something like, they will have no problems. I think they would have to be carefull but clever people can find clever ways of doing things.

The current status is that the site is down again due to a fibre outage at the new company who didnt expect so much traffic  :lol:

The word is that this will be resolved tomorrow morning or there abouts, just in time for the next round in the game no doubt.

They are off to a good start I see then. I have confidence in TPB and the site as always helped me get the things I need.

Wow this storey sounds so familiar for some reason......... :D
When you wake up each morning always try to remember tomorrow is never your option, it's God's. Love like you want to. Live like you aren't afraid. And ALWAYS try to remember that even if it seems personal it's never as important as something you may have forgotten to do today.
