A nice present to TPB and our users on this day, our 10yr birthday!
Oh look, we made it.A decade of agression, repression and lulz.
We really didn't think we'd make it this far. Not because of cops, mafiaa or corrupt politicians. But because we thought that we'd eventually be to old for this shit. But hey, running this ship makes us feel young.
And we're gonna stay young til we die.
Thank you for everything. We would not be anything without you.
7 years ago, our ISP was raided and the pigs in blue took off with all our servers (and about 100 unrelated servers too). Did we bend over and ask for forgiveness? Hell no, within 3 days we were back. Here's how we put it back then:
here are some reasons why TPB is down sometimes - and how long it usually takes to fix: Tiamo gets *very* drunk and then something crashes: 4 days Anakata gets a really bad cold and noone is around: 7 days The US and Swedish gov. forces the police to steal our servers: 3 days .. yawn.
Years come and go and now we're soon about to celebrate our 10th birthday. People have changed, the hardware sure has changed. We're now distributed around a vast number of cloud services and as you might have noticed, we're doing some domain hopping too.
Our message is as it's always been: We decide if the site dies or not, no one else.
So today, 7 years after the raid, we celebrate our independence once again. Thank you for being a part of all this!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, 3 MARCH 102, 평양 (PYONGYANG).
The Pirate Bay has been hunted in many countries around the world. Not for illegal activities but being persecuted for beliefs of freedom of information. Today, a new chapter is written in the history of the movement, as well as the history of the internets.
A week ago we could reveal that The Pirate Bay was accessed via Norway and Catalonya. The move was to ensure that these countries and regions will get attention to the issues at hand. Today we can reveal that we have been invited by the leader of the republic of Korea, to fight our battles from their network.
This is truly an ironic situation. We have been fighting for a free world, and our opponents are mostly huge corporations from the United States of America, a place where freedom and freedom of speech is said to be held high. At the same time, companies from that country is chasing a competitor from other countries, bribing police and lawmakers, threatening political parties and physically hunting people from our crew. And to our help comes a government famous in our part of the world for locking people up for their thoughts and forbidding access to information.
We believe that being offered our virtual asylum in Korea is a first step of this country's changing view of access to information. It's a country opening up and one thing is sure, they do not care about threats like others do. In that way, TPB and Korea might have a special bond. We will do our best to influence the Korean leaders to also let their own population use our service, and to make sure that we can help improve the situation in any way we can. When someone is reaching out to make things better, it's also ones duty to grab their hand.
A typical Whac-A-Mole machine consists of a large, waist-level cabinet with five holes in its top and a large, soft, black mallet. Each hole contains a single plastic mole and the machinery necessary to move it up and down. Once the game starts, the moles will begin to pop up from their holes at random. The object of the game is to force the individual moles back into their holes by hitting them directly on the head with the mallet, thereby adding to the player's score. The quicker this is done the higher the final score will be.
Current score: 0
PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE The Pirate Bay, the world’s largest site for cultural diversity and file sharing, has today (Monday 2013-02-18) reported a suspected crime to the Finnish police. The suspected criminals are the Finnish anti-piracy organization CIAPC (locally known as TTVK). The reason is that CIAPC have copied files from which The Pirate Bay is built, to produce a fraudulent parody site. While The Pirate Bay may have a positive view on copying, it will not stand by and watch copyright enforcing organizations disrespect copyright. - It's funny that we have to teach the copyright lobby the meaning of the law. The fact that they wrote it doesn’t mean that they are above it, says Winston Bay. CIAPC is not new to balancing on the edge of what's right and wrong. Last year, they initiated a police raid against a 9 year old girl and confiscated her Winnie the Pooh laptop. - CIAPC is like an ugly high school bully without friends. It's time to take a stand. Cyber bullying is a serious matter to us all, Winston Bay continues. The money that CIAPC might have to pay for this crime will however not end up at The Pirate Bay. - Our hearts are with the victimized 9 year old Finnish girl. Any money that might come out of this will fund a new computer for the girl. Facts: The Pirate Bay is the world’s largest file sharing site. It ranks as the world’s 58th largest site. Since its launch in 2003, it has maintained a strong stance for internet freedom and against censorship. It is run by dozens of individuals from all around the world, all with the same values of liberty, kopimi and progressiveness.
For people interested in the politics of the internets, one of the worst cases we've seen in a long while is the insane case against Richard O'Dwyer. He's a young UK citizen, who was running the link based site TV-Shack.
He is now facing extradition to the US. He has no ties to that country and has not operated his website in the US. It doesn't really matter if he's committed a crime in giving out links on his websites (we of course do not see this as something illegal, but actually protected as legal by lots of european laws), another country should not be able to demand him extradited to follow his laws.
We would never allow a person that was unfaithful to his or her partner to be extradited to a dictatorship such as Saudi Arabia to be punished for that crime. But as soon as COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT is the alleged "crime", anything goes. It's insane and needs to be stopped!
Anyone that cares about democracy, peoples right to a fair trial and that money should not buy you benefits in the legal system, should support Richard now. It's an important case. Next time it could be you!
