The Pirate Bay torrent site raided According to the front page of The Pirate Bay the site has been raided by Swedish anti-piracy organizations this morning. The Pirate Bay was one of the most active BitTorrent hosting sites in Europe.
The statement on the page reads:
Today the swedish anti-piracy organisations raided The Pirate Bay and confiscated the computers running the tracker. This probably means the end of The Pirate Bay and we, the crew, apologize for all loss of income caused by our activity over the years.

The Pirate Bay's admin always responded to legal threats by mocking the lawyers that had contacted him and stated that The Pirate Bay is perfectly legal under the current Swedish legistlation. It is interesting to see how the case elvolves.

How weird because when I looked at Pirate Bay's site yesterday, June 01, I got this message: (Is anyone getting the same one?) ------------------------------------------------------- Now you may wonder why we did this? We just wanted to make you aware of that there will be a new version of piratebay soon. For your pleasure: we started the announces again. Yes, we know we're somewhat behind schedule - technical difficulties... Stay tuned.
