Pirate Bay server becomes museum artefact

Marvel at the flashing lights!

Security for virtualized datacentres

A server used by notorious BitTorrent tracker site The Pirate Bay that was seized by police has been added to Sweden’s National Museum of Science and Technology’s collection.

The museum said today it has bought the server from The Pirate Bay for 2,000 kronor ($243). It’s understood the artefact has been added to the Stockholm-based museum’s “Inspiration Imitation” display, which aims to to stimulate interest in finding out more about the area of intellectual propety rights."

The copyright infringement trial against the four men behind The Pirate Bay took place in Sweden in February.

Charges were first brought against the defendants - Carl Lundström, Peter Sunde, Frederik Neij and Gottfrid Svartholm Warg - in January 2008.

Police raided server locations connected with the website in May 2006, where computer equipment was confiscated.

Swedish authorities recently returned servers that had been used as evidence in the trial to The Pirate Bay.

Meanwhile, the verdict in the landmark Pirate Bay versus the entertainment industry trial is expected tomorrow. Many are predicting that regardless of the outcome, the losing side will appeal the decision. ®
