Pirate Bay ISP hit with German injunction

Cyberbunker targeted by MPA

Security for virtualized datacentres

The Hamburg district court has slapped an injunction on German ISP CB3ROB (Cyberbunker) and its operator, demanding that the outfit refrains from plugging The Pirate Bay into the internet.

According to a statement (pdf) issued by the Motion Picture Association of America yesterday, if the defendants ignore the court order they will be “subject to a fine of up to €250,000 for each instance of infringement or, if this cannot be enforced, up to two years imprisionment for the operators of Cyberbunker”.

However, Ars Technica is reporting that the firm’s operator Sven Olaf Kamphuis claimed he knew nothing about the court order.

The Cyberbunker operator labelled companies such as Disney as “clueless idiots” and told Ars that TPB was “fully legit”.

The Register has asked Cyberbunker to comment on this story, but at time of writing it hadn’t gotten back to us. ®
