Pirate Bay Has Been Raided and Taken Down: Here's What We Know | WIRED

Pirate Bay Has Been Raided and Taken Down: Here's What We Know | WIRED | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

The popular file-sharing service Pirate Bay was taken down today following a raid in Sweden by police who seized servers and computers.

The Pirate Bay portal went down Tuesday morning after Swedish police raided a server room in Stockholm over alleged copyright violations. In addition to its file-sharing section, Pirate Bay’s forum Suprbay.org was also down.

Pierre Priot's insight:

Raiding the Pirate Bay server room is a spectacular move from the Swedish police, but this will not stop the Pirate Bay torrent file sharing nor come close to stop piracy in any way.
