Pirate bay is down after police raid
posted December 9 2014 21:49.00 by Giorgos Lazaridis

It was just a matter of time to happen. The Swedish police raided the Pirate Bay servers and the portal is down for several hours. All this time it was "hidden" behind the laws of Sweden which are somewhat short regarding the internet.

The Swedish Metro writes: (Google translate)
The effort was initiated by Frederick Ingblad, one of Sweden's special file sharing prosecutors into allegations of violation of copyright law. He confirms that the raid took place in the Stockholm area, on Tuesday morning, without specifying the site further.

- There were a number of police officers and Digital forensics there. This took place during the morning and until the afternoon. And there were several servers and computers seized, but I would not say exactly how many, says Fredrik Ingblad.

He confirms that the raid was directed against file-sharing site The Pirate Bay, the site stopped working at 12 o'clock on Tuesday.

- It is about an investigation against the Pirate Bay and people behind the site. I took the search warrant in this place because we found evidence that could have been the Pirate Bay. Since the site was shut down shortly thereafter suggest it well that it had something to do with it, says Ingblad.

He can neither confirm or deny reports that a person would have been detained.

As for the future of the ship, it is most unlikely to submerge, at least not under the same name. Piracy will not seize to exist, and many will download Star Wars 7 from some other source. As a matter of fact, there are already lots of other P2P, torrents and trackers and people have used to seek them since the Pirate Bay has been raided so many times. May 31, 2006 was the first time when 65 Swedish police officers entered the servers in Stockholm.
