The Pirate Bay founders have launched a new project which has taken everyone by surprise: they created a new online platform which (surprisingly enough) complies with the copyright legislation.
File-sharers are offered to use the newly launched site named Bayfiles. The service is used for uploading and storing material that anyone else is able to access.
One of The Pirate Bay founders, Fredrik Neij, explained that storage and transfers on the service also preserve privacy of Bayfiles users. Besides, the website had another advantage: its users can be sure that the uploaded material stays up – this is especially important for personal backups. Bayfiles also promises that other personal content like MP3 collections can always be accessed, so users would be able to stream it live to any device.
The project in question was launched by Fredrik Neij and Peter Sunde, who are the founders of a Hong Kong-based company named Bayfiles Limited. Its mission is to operate the file-sharing service, which, as they assure, won’t generate any copyright violation issue. The site founders emphasized how the BitTorrent P2P technology, which is also used by the most famous file-sharing site in the history – The Pirate Bay, is currently rather unreliable because of the correlated efforts of both the entertainment industry and Internet service providers to figure out methods and system to ban or censor BitTorrent traffic.
The new service guaranteed that copyright protected content will be prevented from being spread on the Internet. However, it also promised to remain loyal to its mission of offering a simple and efficient way of sharing content. Bayfiles stated that repeat infringers might have their accounts terminated whether or not the suspected copyright violation could be proved.
As you might remember, more than two years ago, all four founders of The Pirate Bay – Peter Sunde, Fredrik Neij, Carl Lundström and Gottfrid Svartholm Warg were all convicted by the Sweden court for facilitating copyright violation. Originally, all four of them received one year jail sentence and faced a fine of around $4.5 million in total, but in 2010 their jail sentences were reduced by an appeals court to 10 months, 8 months and 4 months accordingly for three of the site owners. Meanwhile, the damage fines increased to $6.5 million.
