Pirate Bay resurfaces after German legal depth-charge

Chortling freetards flaunt buttocks at scurvy law-dogs

Boost IT visibility and business value

The Pirate Bay file tracking site is currently offline - apparently forced to close by a German court injunction filed last week.

We covered the filing last week. A district court in Hamburg heard from the Motion Picture Ass. of America, which targeted German ISP CB3ROB (Cyberbunker).

Cyberbunker was ordered to unplug the site or face two years in prison or a $250,000 fine for each example of copyright infringement found.

The site is currently unavailable, though it has been taken out before and bounced back quickly.

For background on The Pirate Bay see this interview with one of the founders, now somewhat disinterested.

Update

As predicted, the site has returned - with a picture of a laughing kitten and the caption: "I'ms in your skynets, lollings aways ats yours futiles attempts ats contrllings our internets." ®
