Swedish police have carried out a raid, which resulted in the seizure of the PC and server equipment in Stockholm. This took the largest torrent tracker in the world The Pirate Bay down.
The portal, which has survived the arrest and jailing of its founders, numerous attempts of the entertainment industry and law enforcement authorities to remove the site from the Internet, as well as ban by ISPs all over the world, went down for more than a day.
A national coordinator for IP crime at Stockholm County Police has confirmed that they have raided a server room in Stockholm because of a copyright violation, and it was The Pirate Bay that suffered in result. The raid was ignited by a complaint from Rights Alliance, a Swedish anti-piracy group, which maintained that TPB was an illegal commercial service deriving substantial profits from infringing the works of others.
According to media reports, the servers seized in the raid did belong to The Pirate Bay. A number of its affiliated websites were briefly coming back online, but the torrent tracker itself remains silent. The industry observers pointed out that some services affiliated with TPB (EZTV, Zoink, Torrage, Istole, bayimg.com, pastebay.net and suprbay.org) were also shut down after the raid.
According to a Swedish intellectual property crime prosecutor, the server room was raided by several police officers and digital forensics experts during the morning, and the raid continued until the afternoon. They seized a few servers and computers, but the exact number is unknown. It is also unclear whether the police authorities seized the domain names of the BitTorrent tracker as part of their action against the copyright infringement activities of the site.
It should be noted that The Pirate Bay has been blocked at the ISP level across the world for a few years now. Users of the website have successfully bypassed the court-ordered bans by using proxy websites that replicated TPB services and pulled information from the main portal when users accessed them operating as a relay.
Most of those proxy websites are still online and working, despite the primary portal being taken offline. The problem is that proxy sites have no data of their own and are therefore essentially crippled by the removal of The Pirate Bay from the worldwide web.

|EZTV has been around for a long time to stay down for too long. We will see them back at some point in time. Other than missing out on the people who provide us with the greatest service around, the only reason that every government will crack down on our gracious hosts is because they are being backed by some of the largest fatcats within the world. Without profit to gain no one has a reason to support the action.|

|Thank you Nan1977asdl and Nitroito.|
There is nothing illegal in S H A R I N G... before torrents, there were called LIBRARIES...
It has always been HUMAN NATURE to SHARE..
It is as if they don't MAKE ENOUGH PROFITS. over charging ridiculous LARGE amounts.... actors, musicians, producers, etc. etc. make huge amounts of profits....

|i think it will be back soon|
|I tested .cr and it worked for me.|
|Torrent sites are the new "Copyright Terrorism" that the big government\mega corporate pigs are going after in the name of "protecting" the entertainment industries. We recognize it for what it truly is: a big government\corporate attempt to take absolute control of the Internet. These whining "anti-piracy" organizations who launch complaints are just playing right into the hands of Big Brother. Some of those groups are tools OF Big Brother, just like some terrorist groups are tools (funded and used by), of sovereign and global governance alike, to corral us all into being victims of an overarching protection-scheme. Like all protection rackets, the "Protectors" are the REAL enemy. It's a SCAM. The same type of scam that a pimp runs on his girls, or a mob-boss runs on a local mom-and-pop restaurant. "I'll protect you...for a price."|
I fear for our world, how it will be in the not-far-off future if we don't keep fighting these power-mad freaks on all fronts.
