A Finnish Anti-Piracy Group Received A Bomb Threat After Campaigning Against The Pirate Bay

The non-profit group CIAPC (Copyright, Information and Anti-Piracy Centre) took the website to court in Helsinki last year on behalf of a Finnish recording industry association.

The court controversially ruled that Elisa, one of the largest telecoms operators in Finland, must block access to the website.

Elisa complied with the ruling on Monday, and CIAPC said it received an e-mail signed by Anonymous Finland shortly afterwards. This said CIAPC's office in downtown Helsinki would be bombed this week, according to CIAPC, which has reported the e-mail to the police. http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/01/10/finland-hacking-idUSL6E8CA38H20120110

Elisa has stated that they will seek correction to the decision in supreme court. As of today, all Elisa and Saunalahti (part of the same group) customers will be denied access to ThePirateBay on an operator level, meaning they have denied access to the servers in their name servers.
