Pirate Bay launches encrypted private network

Delayed service fires broadside at Hollywood

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

The Pirate Bay has opened beta testing on its encrypted virtual private network which it reckons will stop copyright hassles for anyone wishing to share files.

The only issue for the freetards is the price - €5 a month. The VPN is being used by 3,000 testers right now and there are another 180,000 in the queue. Pirate Bay hopes they'll be online within a month after which the service will "open for the world...".

The pesky pirates have named the service IPREDator after Sweden's copyright law IPRED (Intellectual Property Rights Enforcement Directive).

The Swedes reckon IPREdator is more secure than a traditional VPN because they will keep no network records. Without network records there is no point in collection agencies going after the hosts of the service.

The service was due for release 1 April, when IPRED came into force, but has been delayed. The posting announcing the release said: "Yeah, we're delayed as usual. But it wouldn't be us if it wasn't delayed :-)".

Despite losing a recent copyright trial the founders of Pirate Bay insist they will fight on.

A posting on their blog asks people to stop collecting money to pay their fines because they will not be paying them. They described the guilty verdict as a: "little speedbump on the information super highway". ®
