Pirate website back online

| 25/08/2009

(BBC): File-sharing website The Pirate Bay (TPB) is back online after its former internet service provider (ISP) was forced to take down the site. Stockholm district court made the order on 21 August, saying ISP Black Internet would be fined 500,000 kronor (£43,000) if it did not comply. The court order was the result of legal action brought against The Pirate Bay by the music and film industry. However, TPB was back online within a few hours with a new carrier. In a press release, parodying Winston Churchill’s famous speech of 1940, the Pirate Bay team said they would keep the site running "for years if necessary".
