This does not bode well for my plans of vegging the f*ck out and marathon watching The Comeback this holiday season while eating copious amounts of chocolate. This morning Swedish police raided the offices of torrent site king PirateBay, seizing computers, servers, and other important gadgets that have kept Pirate Bay safe.
“There has been a crackdown on a server room in Greater Stockholm. This is in connection with violations of copyright law,” read a statement from the national police chief of IP.
It’s possible that one person was detained by police during the raid.
Although Pirate Bay is the largest target of the raid, sites like EZTV, Zoink, and Torrage are also offline.
Seriously, what shows will you actually have to go out and purchase now that PirateBay is offline?
