Pirate Bay shut down following Swedish raid

The Pirate Bay has parked itself at thepiratebay.cr after thepiratebay.se was shut down.

Torrent sharing website The Pirate Bay has been forced offline after Swedish authorities raided its Stockholm base on Tuesday.

Swedish police targeted servers, computers and other equipment servicing the website at thepiratebay.se, which redirects from thepiratebay.org.

"We had a crackdown on a server room in Greater Stockholm because of a copyright infringement, and yes it was Pirate Bay," Paul Pinter, national coordinator, intellectual property crime at Stockholm County Police told Reuters.

Prosecutor Fredrik Ingblad told Radio Sweden the operation, which lasted from morning until afternoon, involved "a number" of police officers and digital forensics experts.

"Several servers and computers were seized, but I cannot say exactly how many," he told the station.

Both Pirate Bay domains were inaccessible at the time of writing, with reports the site had been down for several hours.

The site is still visible via "mirror" or "proxy" sites including thepiratebay.cr and labaia.me, however these are no longer functioning, with any searches throwing up an error page.

Other related sites such as Suprbay.org, Bayimg.com, Pastebay.net, EZTV, Zoink, Torrage and Istole were also down at the time of writing.

Torrenting is a form of peer-to-peer sharing, where internet users download files directly from each other, rather than from a website.

Pirates can search for copyrighted material such as films, games, music or software at The Pirate Bay and download them via other users.

International efforts have led to the jailing of the service's founders. However, co-founder Peter Sunde was released from custody in Sweden last month after serving a five-month sentence for aiding copyright infringement.

Torrent Freak previously reported The Pirate Bay had moved to cloud-based virtual servers to give it greater agility in the event of a raid.

The website is now warning would-be pirates not to be fooled by scammers trying to capitalise on the event with fake sites asking for payment to access torrent files.

The Swedish operation is the just the latest blow for the website in recent days.

On Friday, Google reportedly removed all third-party pirating apps connected to the website from its Google Play store.

Also last week, a French court ordered internet service providers operating within the country to block customer access to The Pirate Bay.

Critics of the measure, also under consideration in Australia, point out that blocked websites can still be accessed using a virtual private network (VPN), which allows an internet user to bypass geographical restrictions.

The Pirate Bay was implicated in facilitating illicit downloading of leaked movies from Sony Pictures following a recent cyber attack.

Update: http://torrentfreak.com/the-pirate-bay-has-not-been-resurrected-yet-141210/

Fake sites are popping up demanding money to use them

Update: Apparently the commercialism doesn’t stop at novelty items. The .CR domain listed above was briefly diverting users to another domain (thepiratebay.ee) which demands anything from $4 to 4 for users to access torrents – AVOID.

I read an article last night about how Sony had elegitly went on the offensive after some software and information got leaked.  It's also reported that Sony is under investigation because of their methods to controlling the farther illegal distribution of their leaked data.
