Pirate Bay Co-Founder Peter Sunde Released From Prison

Pirate Bay co-founder Peter Sunde has been released from prison today after being arrested in Sweden earlier this year.

Sunde was convicted of aiding copyright infringement and was initially sentenced to a year a prison. His sentence was later reduced to eight months, but following his conviction he failed to show up at prison and was on the run from Interpol from 2012 until May 2014. He has been incarcerated in a high-security unit ever since he was arrested.

Little is known about Sunde's time inside prison, especially his final few months. In August, German Pirate Party MEP Julia Reda visited Sunde in jail, interviewing him for Torrent Freak. He revealed to Reda that he suffered from boredom and depression and had not been allowed to follow a vegan diet. He also told her that he was "brimming with ideas", particularly when it came to finding ethical ways to fund activism.

No doubt Sunde will also continue working on his other projects now he has his freedom back. Before he was put in prison, he was known to be working on a social micropayments platform called Flattr, and Hemlis, an encrypted messaging app.

Pirate Bay Founder Arrested In Thailand

The co-founder of the file-sharing website The Pirate Bay, who was arrested this week at the Laos border, would be extradited to Sweden to serve a jail term within the next month, Thai police said on Wednesday.

Fredrik Neij, 36, is being questioned in the capital Bangkok after he was detained on Wednesday at a checkpoint in the northeastern town of Nong Khai.

"A Swedish national was brought here today. He will be put in a detention room ... staff from the Swedish embassy will then interrogate him," Police Lieutenant Colonel Nuttavuth Sangduen, deputy superintendent of Nong Khai Immigration, told Reuters.

"It will take less than a month to extradite him."

Neij told reporters in Bangkok that his arrest was "expected" but did not offer any further explanation.

The Pirate Bay, launched in 2003, provided links to music and movie files that were stored on other users' computers. Swedish subsidiaries of prominent music and film companies had taken The Pirate Bay to court claiming damages for lost revenue.

The Pirate Bay Happy With Google's Lowering Of Torrent Searches

The piracy market is always on the rise and with the Internet serving the easiest way of pirating music, movies and software, Google has been facing the brunt.

Music and entertainment industries have been accusing Google for not combating piracy for long. However, Google tried to push off the matter by claiming that it is a search engine and not a gateway and nor is it their job of policing the Internet.

However, according to an article on SoftPedia, Google has been working on changing the rankings of torrents from 2012 based on the complaints filed by DMCA. Google is lowering the search rankings of torrent searches and websites. And now the tech giant has additionally placed more measures to visibly lower search rankings.

The lowering of the ranking of torrent searches is the result of high percentage complaints from DMCA to take down the related websites. Search terms such as ‘Watch’, ‘Torrent’ or ‘Download’ will now display legal alternatives as compared to torrents and pirated stuff.

ISOHunt, a popular torrent website, told Torrent Freak that their search-based traffic has fallen by half. ISOHunt is not the only one to report the drop in traffic. and have also reported similar cases.

Google Adds Custom Search For The Pirate Bay

Google's new and improved sitelinks section has introduced a novel feature that could prove unintentionally popular with Pirate Bay fans. Alongside the same feature for other sites, the search engine now displays a custom Pirate Bay search box complete with related AutoComplete suggestions. Needless to say, copyright holders are not going to be happy with these latest improvements.

The entertainment industries have gone head to head with Google in recent months, demanding tougher anti-piracy measures from the search engine.

Pirate Bay Flag

According to the RIAA, MPAA and others, Google is making it too easy for its users to find pirated content. Instead, they would prefer Google to remove sites such as the Pirate Bay from its search results.

Australian ISPs Tackling The Pirate Bay

The internet service providers in Australia have come together to fight The Pirate Bay and other copyright-infringing websites. They have declared to cut off advertising from websites that distribute copyright material without permission.

According to a report by The West Australian, organisations like Optus, iiNet and Telstra have join hands to implement the 'Follow-the-money' strategy. They come together via Communications Alliance.

Telcos believe that this technique will cripple websites like The Pirate Bay as their revenue generating source i.e. money from advertising.

The Communications Alliance stated that in UK a similar technique was implemented in trial and it managed to cut down 12 per cent of the revenues going to websites like The Pirate Bay and Kicka** Torrent.

"We are hopeful that a very broad coalition of companies - not just in the telecommunications sector, but right across the economy - will join the strategy and make real inroads against infringement," John Stanton, chief of Communication Alliance said.

The Pirate Bay Arranges Servers To Avoid Law Enforcement

The staff of The Pirate Bay has revealed how the notorious file-sharing site uses a clever mix of servers to avoid detection and police raids.

Speaking to Torrent Freak, the site's anonymous operators detailed how they use a series of virtual machines to fool companies into hosting the torrent site.

The Pirate Bay doesn't own any physical servers. Rather, the site is spread across different commercial cloud hosting providers.

Twenty-one "virtual machines" are scattered around the world and are used to handle different functions of the site. A virtual machine is a simulated operating system running on another computer, and The Pirate Bay uses them to break the site's functions down onto different hosting platforms.
