The Pirate Bay - The galaxy's most resilient bittorrent site 

New TPB investigation leaked

TPB is not hosted in -insert country here-, as far as we know. "As far as we know?" you might ask! Yes. TPB is set up in a very special way to make sure that it will stay up. This means that noone really knows exactly where the servers are, but we've made sure to stay out of the United States of Arrogance and some other countries where the governments do not like free speech.

The only box someone could find is the one in the front, that needs to be public. We have multiple of those, scattered like diarrhea around the world. They contain no storage device, no graphics card. Only a network cable, a cpu and memory. Being nice people, we've put small easters egg into each box though, for the hard work put into finding that public machine! Nothing dangerous though, just funny.

Even though this means that TPB can never be pin-pointed to a certain country, the Swedish district attorney Fredrik Ingblad initiated a new investigation into The Pirate Bay back in 2010. Information has been leaked to us every now and then by multiple sources, almost on a regular basis. It's an interesting read. We can certainly understand why WikiLeaks wished to be hosted in Sweden, since so much data leaks there. The reason that we get the leaks is usually that the whistleblowers does not agree with what is going on. Something that the governments should have in mind - even your own people does not agree.

Since our recent move to a .SE domain the investigation has been cranked up a notch. We think that the investigation is interesting considering nothing that TPB does is illegal. Rather we find it interesting that a country like Sweden is being so abused by lobbyists and that this can be kept up. They're using scare tactics, putting pressure on the wrong people, like providers and users. All out of fear from the big country in the west, and with an admiration for their big fancy wallets.

We're staying put where we are. We're going no-where. But we have a message to hollywood, the investigators and the prosecutors: LOL.

The pirate bay is the best website in the world, it is a cultural gift to humanity and anyone who tries to shut it down is a fucking cunt who deserves nothing, long live TPB!

You guys are awesome. If there is some way to help you guys I would love to. You guys give so much and don't ask for much in return.

I say this.....
"We are no-one.... we are everyone. We are the voice in the distance that says if you can get it FREE... then get it free. WE WILL BE **~~~ANONYMOUS~~~**

Besides, it comes down to the HOBBYIST, and the cheap skates who won't spend 10.75 on a movie ticket.!!!!!!
#13. michael.c - 03-09 2012
Hahaha. You guys should move to Czech Republic, because here "confidential" actually means "immediately send to newspapers." Much better than Sweden ;-)

If The Pirate Bay goes down, all other sites will follow. So, really hope you keep this site online.

Of all the people who have said "fuck the POlice", TPB's middle finger has been the biggest and most hilarious (as well as the most admirable)

Our government over here in the US may be pretty queer, but most of us are actually pretty chill (just steer clear of the Christians)
If you guys are ever in the neighborhood, give me a call. I'll gladly go leave a flaming bag of dogshit on the white house front step with you. They might get pissed off, but we can probably just pass it off as 'improved decorating'.

When will the government realize that piracy is not a single site. It's an idea, that can't be stopped.
#38. CaveHermit - 03-10 2012
Just wondering.. But has the thought cross your minds to find a open server/machine on the RIAA,MPAA,US Seneate/Congress, White House, CIA, FBI, etc.etc.etc. To run as Host to keep the site running if the main site should happen to go down?
Just a thought.. Just a thought.
#39. Mic07711 - 03-11 2012
Many Americans here love TPB! So don't stereotype all of us! Just our shitty Government and upper class!
#40. newton8573 - 03-11 2012
Keep up the good fight

americaa really need to get it into their head that american laws are only valid within american borders

sweden can without fear say "go fuck your self" to the american greedy corrupt assholes.
#41. newton8573 - 03-11 2012
This is Sweden we have our own laws and you america are breaking them. How would you feel if we did the same thing to you ?
Shower you with threats, etc to follow the swedish laws ?

America really are an arrogant bunch of scum.
Thinking that they are superior to everybody else.

Somebody should knock some sense into them.
That hopefully will be permanent this time.

Apparently 9/11 didn't do the trick.

One good thing though, the more america tries to swing their big fat ass around the more other countries will hate them and the less they will care when america gets attacked.

Sooner or later somebody will say enough and kick american ass.

Hope i live when that happens so i can point my finger at the americans and laugh out loud and say: You got what you deserve. Thats what you get for being an asshole and disrespecting and threatening other countries.

Dark yes but i expresses my anger and frustrations quite well of what i think of what the americans are doing.

"There will only take on
#42. newton8573 - 03-11 2012
"There will only take one asshole to destroy it for everyone"

America is the biggest asshole.

Unfortunately there are others. Individuals backed up by america to change the laws in other countries from the inside for example australia.
#43. newton8573 - 03-11 2012
BTW
During the raid of 2006, why did the police cover up the cameras ?

What were they trying to hide ?

Seems illegal to me to do such a thing.

A raid really should be documented by an impartial source so the police can't "forget" or make things go "missing".


I hope you have installed hidden cameras this time that can't be located and covered up by shady police.
#44. Odin1066 - 03-11 2012
I just stumbled on this news of an expected raid 2 hrs ago.
The change to magnet links is one way to help future resilience no matter what happens. I hope what with the latest affordable security cameras and such that if and when a raid happens it may be well recorded by multiple angles so that a interesting movie could be made of the event to be shared freely with the world at a later time.
Lots of people think PIPA and SOPA were killed, they were indefinitely shelved. There are even worse bills currently being handled by several Western governments besides. Despite the importance of these things their progress is not at all easy to know about. So while TPB is well prepared the, majority of users really are not.

Put some paint bombs on those machines and a Video camera...will be funny to watch the seizure :)
#48. haidaboy - 03-12 2012
I love TPB so much. And I certainly hate the greed-driven entertainment industry.

And I like the fact that as the balance of world power sways away from USA, these greed-driven entities will not have the power to bully other countries.
#49. travis2ninja - 03-12 2012
OMGG!!, i love the way you guys work.. (:
#50. burg3rt - 03-12 2012
Keep up the good work, shout out to TPB! I love free information. To all the Americans: You get the government you deserve! Please, fuck up your own country, not others, like you've been doing for decades. leave the world alone!! In the Netherlands: Fuck Brein, Sena, Buma, Stemra and all the others. You know that Brein, the anti piracy organisation in the Netherlands stole, and did not pay the artsist for the music they use on there DVD-warnings? Fucking hilarious! And one of the employees there was able to fix that for an additional fee: 1 third of the copyrights earnings, it was i believe one million euro's this corrupt employee asked for his 'influence". Fuck all the anti paracy organisations wordlwide!
#51. torrent02 - 03-12 2012
Yay!!! So much for Americans thinking they're the best in the technology world. Doesn't stop me from using the Pirate Bay!!

Everybody says that everybody who uses the Bay will be caught eventually. Well, good luck finding the servers!

Keep up the good work.... Live long and prosper. :)
#52. pimpmobile - 03-12 2012
Fuck the United States of oppression! I want to Leave but they won't let me I'm trapped in a country I hate! If someone knows how I can get out and wheres a country that isnt oppressive please let me know I've only been able to make $4,000 in 3 years I am a slave to america!

#58. anamenobodyelsehas - 03-14 2012
@TPB ...LOL... and thnx!

For those of you spewing anti-American sentiment let me just say that America has MILLIONS of people who are informed and who support free flow of information... the internet knows no nation borders... if you want a place to come where you are not oppressed... the internet is one of the last bastions of freedom... Long live individual freedom Long live Individual thought... -Me
#59. brunomocsa - 03-15 2012
Im sad that in a lot of countries they have so much dictator laws about copyright.
Meanwhile here in Brazil, including my city if anyone dont want to download or dont have a computer (a lot of poor people) they just have to cross the street to buy for about $1 dollar some DVD with any movie.
Even the cops buy this dvds discs... (http://acritica.uol.com.br/manaus/PMs-compram-midias-piratas-servico_ACRIMA20110207_0117_13.jpg)
So its good but sad at same time that we will live without any law or fiscalization of copyrights infrigiment because of the big poverty that a lot of people live here.
#60. B0mbay - 03-15 2012
Excellent work gentlemen.

Hopefully a lot more Americans will start waking up and seeing our government for what it really is. The fight for TPB is a step in the right direction.

You guys should do a blog post about ways we can help. I'd wager you would have an army waiting to sign up.
#61. BlowsFXP - 03-16 2012
Yarrrrrrrrrrrrr Bastards !

I have been using my facebook wall to post information about the fight for freedom in all situations...I love my country but America is a dying nation...TPB never give up, because here, you are not just a website, or a name. You are a way of life.

#68. pricegeoffrey - 03-17 2012
I wrote four books that I am distributing on this site only. There's nothing illegal about that, either. If any ISP sends you a notice about so-called "piracy" then say you were downloading my books. I wish more artists and musicians would produce and torrent through Piratebay for a number of selfish reasons. I like getting my shit for free. I like interacting directly with people who produce culture. And, if enough people did it, we might push the legal definition of copyright back in favor of the 99 percent again. Claims to copyright belong to corporations almost exclusively: that's why individuals so rarely claim copyright. Piratebay and its collaborative community, which is only currently using torrents, is the future. It's more of a movement, which is why it is such a threat to so many. Or maybe I did it to justify leeching The Walking Dead every Monday...
#69. pkcinxx - 03-18 2012
Honestly, I'm ashamed to be an Americunt :(
#70. piratiinho - 03-18 2012
You guys are funny.
Stay sharp.
#71. [Z] - 03-18 2012
The funny thing is, becaue of TPB I have bought more media than I would have otherwise. I find music, movies, TV shows and such here, I use them. That isn't the end. I am able to enjoy something for free without blindly buying into it, so I can tell if I actually like it or not. On top of that I find things I wouldn't have otherwise. Thus I'm more likely to end up buying things if I do actually like them(since I support things I enjoy).

Keep it up TPB, you do more for them than they do for themselves.

Oh the irony...
#72. nenadpopov - 03-18 2012
Long live piratebay
#73. suitretas - 03-18 2012
One has to admire your work throughout the years, especially since a couple of years till now.
Some yankee biggots want to control all knowledge, what people do, like, want, need, get, buy, eat..... but wont succeed, thanks to people like you guys.
Q:
Why are we even allowed to simply WRITE... to use freely, characters on keyboards?? letters from A to Z.... numbers from 0 to 9...
A:
Yeah, someone forgot to control that. But who knows, maybe in the future someone from a senate comes with such a bill, just to please the GREED of those FAT leeches who live from OTHERS' WORK.
Damn i hate US of Biggotry....
Got carried..sheesh... XD
Ok so Here's my thanks to the TPB, and carry on doing what most of us can't.
#74. torrent02 - 03-19 2012
To those who are complaining about "wanting to select the files I download", just let it be! uTorrent will download it for you. After the magnet is downloaded, just pull whatever files you don't want. Problem solved.
#75. live4designer - 03-19 2012
Everybody says that everybody who uses the Bay will be caught eventually. Well, good luck finding the servers!
You guys give so much and don't ask for much in return.

why people on here are bashing Americans is a stupid thing because it's not the people who are doing all of this shit, it the out of control governmet who's doing this shit, it's that fuck up Obama who wasn't even born in America who's try to control everything.
#78. rohanvic - 03-21 2012
@jerrbear: Chill man ! We all know that all Americans are not assholes. All the words are meant @ the government puppets, not the ordinary citizens. So sit back and enjoy some pirated movies.........
