Mikuláš Ferjencik, vice-president of Czech Pirate Party, claimed that the Party unequivocally declared open war on the Anti-Piracy Union. The reason he used those words to start the protest was the decision to pursue a 16-year-old Czech high school student, who is now demanded to pay around $7 million for operating a file-sharing site. The online service the student was in charge of provided links to copyright protected material, but wasn’t hosting the illegal content itself.
Despite the fact that the matter in question is yet to be tried in the court, the Pirate Party of the country took a decision to attract attention to both the teenager’s plight and the legal situation over the online copyrights in the country.
In order to prove the earnest of their protest, aside from the statement the Czech Pirate Party has also launched a linking website of its own. The online service can be accessed at Tipnafilm.cz. The representative of the Pirate Party says that their newly launched service can offer 10 times more links than that run by the accused student. The website has a slogan: “Linking is not a crime”.
The declaration of war appeared to be a deliberately provocative move, within which the Czech Pirate Party has launched several portals for downloading movies and sharing links to illegal content. Meanwhile, no copyright infringing content is stored on the services.
As you can understand, the purpose of introducing a new linking website which is able to surpass in scale the student’s website (referred to by the Anti-Piracy Union as the “greatest pirate in the Czech Republic”) is to make the Union redirect “its preposterous claims at the Pirate Party” and consequently leave the 16-year-old alone.
Still, it is unclear whether this move will be any help for the teenager. Anyway, it will undoubtedly show that the Czech Pirate Party means business. The new project was strictly non-profit and follows up on the Piratskefilmy.cz portal, which had been launched last month. It was Pirate Party vice-president Mikuláš Ferjencik, who described both acts as being “deliberately provocative”, and one would agree with him. As for the Czech Anti-Piracy Union, its representatives made no formal statement over the new services, but refused to reveal their further strategy.

|what's that iamzest, just started, haven't you seen war games or hackers. Al you need to do is open a cmd session and type hack, apparently |
How come I've never noticed Extratorrent being targetted for shutdown or something, is it coz of where it's hosted?
|The Anti-Piracy Union SUCKS super big time. They can't go after the (Super great!) people actually hosting material, so they go after a 16 year old, whose site had NO 'illegal' content. POWER to the people, share all, love all except capitalist pigs, and cruel dictatorships and those who abuse young children or are serial killers! PS capitalist pigs don't want to share anything, mean and absolute, vexacious, malicious and malevolent (evil) BAST**DS that they are! They probably have sex with donkeys to perpetrate their own kind!!!!||
