Well, whatever the results of the trial may be, The Pirate Bay seems pretty sure it won't be going anywhere.

going after places like the pirate bay is like going after blockbuster video because people can copy their vids/dvds.

it also ignores the fact that there are plenty of bands or software developers or aspiring film makers etc out there that actually don't mind their products being distributed via torrent. what are those people supposed to do to get themselves known otherwise?
