Pirate Bay Sets Sail Again After Servers Raided in Sweden Are Migrated to New Base in Ukraine

Infamous torrent search engine Pirate Bay was sunk again after a server raid in Sweden, but has emerged more determined than ever with servers located in Ukraine.


San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/12/2015 -- The Pirate Bay was for many people their first experience of peer to peer file sharing on a large scale and became the first place to search for the latest movies and TV shows to download and view for free. For millions of people the ease of access to immediately available, high quality copies of media that was as yet unavailable to most around the world was a sensational resource. The website has been shut down many times, often forcibly, but has now risen again with a new home in Ukraine.

Pirate Bay now has its own section on the site entitled 'legal threats', suggesting their belligerence toward the authorities has not been dampened by the recent attack in Sweden which saw their servers raided. The database was recovered however and has now been uploaded to servers in the Ukraine which will keep it safe and secure for the foreseeable future.

The site is, besides its URL, is the same as it has always been, with simple and effective search options as well as the ability to add files for sharing. Far from just movies and TV, the site also allows people to peer-share video games, books, comics, music and almost all other media.

A spokesperson for Pirate Bay explained, "The Pirate Bay can be chased to the ends of the earth, but the authorities will never stop it. It has become an online institution and its existence is mandated by its community of millions of active users, who will always guarantee its continuation in the face of legal aggression. Our new servers in the Ukraine will now enable us to safely serve that community with the service they want, without having to charge them for the privilege."
