Swedish prosecutors want Pirate Bay domains revoked Swedish prosecutors are going after the Pirate Bay again, this time telling a court that the .SE domain names used to access the site should be revoked.
Specifically, the prosecutors are looking to Sweden's Internet Infrastructure Foundation - which handles .SE domain name registrations - to "de-register" the domains, thepiratebay.se and piratebay.se.

"They have been used as a means to commit crime," prosecutor Fredrik Ingblad said on Wednesday, according to the Reuters news agency.

"There is a significant criminal copyright infringement which causes a great deal of damage to many."

The Internet Infrastructure Foundation does not seem enthusiastic to follow through on the requests, pointing out that people would still be able to block the controversial website.

"People who want to use the site would get to it anyway," Maria Ekelund, a spokeswoman for the Foundation, said.

The Pirate Bay is currently run by an unknown group.
