The Pirate Bay absconds with domain name of its nemesis

Anti-piracy watchdog raided

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

For years, the folks at The Pirate Bay have stuck in the craw of officials at The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry. The lobby group for the record industry has grown fond of branding the leading BitTorrent site as an international hub for illegal file sharing. Now the international anti-piracy organization can add "domain name raider" to its litany.

IFPI.com, a domain that once belonged to the IFPI, is now the property of a well-known staff member of The Pirate Bay, according to whois searches. (Ownership of IFPI.org, the main domain for the international anti-piracy organization, hasn't changed.)

IFPI.com now features a bare-bones site for an organization dubbed the International Federation of Pirates Interests. It's unclear exactly how The Pirate Bay got a hold of the domain of its nemesis. We're guessing someone at the organization forgot to renew it.

"It's not a hack," Peter Kopimi, the Pirate Bay staff member told TorrentFreak. "Someone just gave us the domain name. We have no idea how they got it, but it's ours and we're keeping it." ®
