RIP ThePirateBay.org.. Feds shutdown freedom site in Sweden

31 05 2006


It’s a sad, sad day. This morning, Swedish authorities raided and shutdown my favorite bitTorrent file sharing site, The Pirate Bay on ground of copyright infringement. This is another beacon to American hedgemony over the world, with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) playing world police and enforcing its anti-consumer, pro-corporate greed “laws” against the free trade of information.

“The actions today taken in Sweden serve as a reminder to pirates all over the world that there are no safe harbors for Internet copyright thieves,” said Dan Glickman, the MPAA’s chief executive.

Fuck you MPAA, fuck you.
