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.
