ISOHunt has unofficially resurrected The Pirate Bay

Rival torrent site, ISO Hunt has resurrected The Pirate Bay via a new domain oldpiratebay.org. The site has a similar design to the original Pirate Bay website, and does appear to be working as the old site did.


Over the past couple of days since The Pirate Bay initially went offline, many websites have uploaded phony and fake sites as it's replacement, however oldpiratebay.org from ISO Hunt does seem to deliver, and does appear to be the most legit site out there.

Some people may believe the new ISO Hunt version of The Pirate Bay may simply be an archive of past Pirate Bay content, however it is now a fully functional site with new and old listings, including up to date download links. You can visit the oldpiratebay.org by clicking here, or by using the link above this post.

Swedish Police Raid The Pirate Bay - Site Remains Offline

The web proxies on this site (www.piratebayproxy.co.uk) and others are working, however due to the The Pirate Bay currently being offline, the proxies do not have an active connection. We hope this will be resolved in due time. 


Police in Sweden carried out a raid in Stockholm today, seizing servers, computers, and other equipment. At the same time The Pirate Bay and several other torrent-related sites disappeared offline. Although no official statement has been made, TF sources confirm action against TPB.

For many years The Pirate Bay has been sailing by the seat of its pants so any downtime is met with concern from its millions of users.


This morning, for the first time in months, The Pirate Bay disappeared offline. A number of concerned users emailed TF for information but at that point technical issues seemed the most likely culprit.

However, over in Sweden authorities have just confirmed that local police carried out a raid in Stockholm this morning as part of an operation to protect intellectual property.

“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 Paul Pintér, police national coordinator for IP enforcement.

Police are staying quiet on the exact location of the operation and the targets involved but the fact that the national police IP chief is involved at this early stage suggests something sizable.

Pirate Bay Apps Removed From Google Play

Looking for an app to help you access The Pirate Bay on your Android phone? You might have a hard time finding one on Google Play.

Google on Friday removed several popular third-party Pirate Bay apps from the Play Store on the grounds of copyright violation, TorrentFreak reported. The list of newly banned apps includes The Pirate Bay Proxy, The Pirate Bay Premium, The Pirate Bay Mirror, and PirateApp.


These apps use proxy sites to help users get around ISP blockades and access The Pirate Bay from a mobile device. Google claims they violate intellectual property provisions of its Play Store content policy.

"REASON FOR REMOVAL: Violation of the intellectual property and impersonation or deceptive behaviour provisions of the Content Policy. Please refer to the IP infringement and impersonation policy help article for more information," Google wrote in an email to developers of the removed apps.

Bayfiles Vanishes From The Internet

The file-hosting website, Bayfiles vanished from the internet after the arrest of Fredrik Neij. Two people formerly associated with The Pirate Bay started Bayfiles. The sudden disappearance left many users clueless about what happened to the website.

TorrentFreak noted that Peter Sunde and Fredrik Neij of The Pirate Bay started Bayfiles three years ago. The duo based the model on the cyberlocker. Bayfiles had a good user base and hardly ran into any problems.


The website disappeared after Fredrik Neij was arrested. Third-party websites used Bayfiles and it is unknown how many users have stored their personal files on the website.

TorrentFreak talked to Peter Sunde and he stated that the downtime can be linked to the arrest of Neij. Sunde mentioned that he hasn't been a part of the website since its launch.

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.
