The PirateBay.org was one of the leading torrent sites on the Web, but their site disappeared this morning when their servers were confiscated by police. I always loved visiting their site because each time that they received a cease-and-desist letter they would post it to their site and make funny remarks about it.
The PirateBay is located in Sweden which is why they have not been prosecuted before in the United States. In Sweden they aren’t really doing anything illegal because they are only hosting the .torrent files and not the actual copyrighted material. Will they be able to slip out of this one unscathed?
