The largest torrent sharing server has no home.

Their ISP Black Internet was ordered to stop service this morning.

They complied.

R.I.P. PirateBay. Another bastion of freedom has died.



IDG News Service - File-sharing site The Pirate Bay went down today after its Internet service provider, Black Internet, cut its connection to avoid being fined by the Stockholm district court.

A 500,000 Swedish kronor (US$70,000) fine would be the result if Black Internet did not comply with the decision in the district court.

"The decision was made by the district court on Friday, but reached us today and we have decided to comply. ... We are a small operator and we haven't got the financial resources to pursue such a matter," said Victor Möller, CEO at Black Internet, in an interview with Computer Sweden.

I wonder who will pick up the domain name once it becomes available?

This coupled with the news that MP`s in Britain as pushing for bans on all "Hardcore Pirates" on the net means that big business is working and the freedom on the net we enjoy at the moment will soon be a thing of the past.
