The court ordered the site’s bandwidth supplier, Black Internet, to disconnect TPB or face penalties of 500,000 kronor ($70,600). The ISP immediately complied, saying that it had no choice but to uphold the law.
Today, Black Internet have some serious problems of their own. According to CEO Victor Möller, his company’s infrastructure has been sabotaged and is suffering substantial damages.
