The Pirate Bay Moves To A Bunch Of New Domains

tpblogoLast year thanks to a raid by the Swedish police, The Pirate Bay was taken offline for several months. Now just when it seems that its “.se” domain appears to be stable, the Stockholm District Court has ordered that thepiratebay.se and piratebay.se domains are to be seized as they have been linked to copyright crimes, thus prompting the website to acquire 6 new domains in the process.

The domains in question are .gs, .la, .vg, .am, .mn, and .gd. In fact as you can see in the screenshot above, the new logo for the website includes the heads of hydras, each representing the new domain names that the website resides at (.vg did not make the cut). For those unfamiliar with the symbolism, basically it’s like they’re telling authorities that for every head you cut off, more will grow in its place.

According to The Pirate Bay team who released a comment to TorrentFreak, “Congratulations to Prosecutor Fredrik Ingblad. Two years hard work to get us to change two little letters at a cost of $20,000 per letter. He could have given us $35,000 and we would have left the domain, thus saving the Swedish tax payer $5,000. All he had to do was ask nicely.”

How quickly authorities will be able to shut down these new domains remains to be seen, but for now it looks like The Pirate Bay is still several steps ahead.
