Feds Receive Requests to Shut Down The Pirate Bay
TorrentFreak
Government communication obtained through a Freedom of Information inquiry reveals that several people have asked the authorities to shut down The Pirate Bay.
Alex Border's insight:

Many copyright companies have filed formal complaints asking for the Pirate Bay to be taken down.  The FBI says that everything they do is against the law and hurts the benefit of artists.  Since Pirate Bay is a Swedish-based company they do not recognize the US law and refuse to shut down the site.

Julia Reda, Member of the European Parliament for the Pirate Party, will be visiting Peter Sunde in prison later today.
Alex Border's insight:

Although piracy is widely frowned upon and considered illegal by the United States federal government, a co-founder of arguably the largest torrent supplier on the internet is sitting in jail but many argue he is still innocent.  It could be perceived that he did not play a criminal part in the company's development but he has yet to stand trial.

International Business Times AU
It looks like major torrent Web sites will be blocked in Austria.
Alex Border's insight:

Popular torrenting websites will be blocked by all internet service providers in Austria.  This will make it effectively impossible to pirate illegal files in this country anymore.  People who may need access to music or other files they would only have access to by torrenting will be forced to pay in full for their files.
