Swedish Pirate Party Now Hosts The Pirate Bay

Swedish Pirate Party Now Hosts The Pirate Bay

After the recent news of The Pirate Bay having been temporarily shut down by its German Internet Service Provider CB3ROB.net, the leader of the Pirate Party Rick Falkvinge said that they had already got tired of entertainment industry’s game with the world’s biggest BitTorrent tracker The Pirate Bay and finally decided to become the site’s ISP.

A couple days ago Swedish website The Pirate Bay has got disconnected from the Internet due to an injunction issued by a German District Court judge against its bandwidth provider CB3ROB.net and ISP’s owner Kamphuis. The ruling required that CB3ROB.net cut The Pirate Bay off the Internet. Otherwise the ISP or its owner would face numerous fines of several hundred thousand euros each or even a couple years of jail time.

The court battle was initiated by the MPAA. The Motion Pictures Association of America won a conviction against The Pirate Bay for encouraging the copyright violation of its users a year ago, and since then has started to target the ISPs providing the site bandwidth.

The Pirate Bay assured its users that the dead time was temporary, and kept its word, as the BitTorrent tracker is already back online owing to the help offered by the Swedish Pirate Party – its natural ally.

Falkvinge says in its statement he believes it’s time to take occasion by the forelock and defend what they believe is a legal activity.
The Pirate Party carefully avoids offering bandwidth to torrent trackers, which are said to be hosted in some other places and is going to only host the search engine function and the site’s home page. Falkvinge says the Pirate Bay is just a search engine, and therefore can’t be hold liable for the search results. He also criticizes other political parties for not taking part in defending the Sweden’s freedom of expression and information security.

As for the Pirate Bay itself, it posted the message saying that The Pirate Bay is an unsinkable ship which will sail online as long as it wants to.

Now the Pirates form an alliance that only highlights the fact that The Pirate Bay’s court battle was mostly responsible for influencing the Pirate Party’s membership, which resulted in its win of two seats in the European Parliament a year ago. Now it will be interesting to watch the MPAA fighting a coalition by its own forces after the Pirate Party and The Pirate Bay having joined their forces.

No avatarlets see how the ziggo vs brein(the dutch MPAA) case in the netherlands will work out.

According to the pirate party its a farce and the result is already known with brein winning because of ziggo delibartly showing up with a weak defence team.
Making Brein able to force isp's to shutdown access to sites like ET amnd TPB.

But then again its rumors and you never know what happens

kuddos to our swedish brothers of the pirate party though fight the system is the only
way we can beat the gold diggers
