The pirate bay has been under allot of heat lately. Their server farms constantly being raided, US Authorities trying to shut down their domain and hundreds of letters with the intent to sue from large corporations all over the planet, are just SOME of the daily headaches. The Pirate Bay boasts the 77th most visited website in the world and 14th in Sweden according to Alexa ranking stats. That is not to bad for a sharing network.
The Pirate Bay was first started by Gottfrid Svartholm and Fredrik Neij, who are known by their nicknames “anakata” and “TiAMO”. We must all give a special thanks to these two, as I am sure in today’s age almost everyone either owns a burned copy of a movie, or has seen one before it has been ‘officially released’ by the motion picture association. Steal this film is about The Pirate Bay and how it works. It also delves into the recent intellectual property frenzy that the motion picture association is in a fuss about. Very good doc!
