In February, Digital Journal
reported that The Pirate Bay (TPB) was setting sail to new pastures after receiving legal threats in Sweden. Soon after this, Digital Journal
reported that North Korea had invited TPB to use their network.
It seems the popular file-sharing site is still on the move. According to the blog on their website
, they are now heading to the United States of America.
A note posted on Monday by Winston Bay reads:
The Freedom Bay
You probably heard about our recent move to North Korea.
Many of you rightfully bashed us for siding with a dictatorship. We want you to know that we have listened to your critique.
So without further due [sic], we hereby announce that we have moved our servers from the evil North Korea to the greatest f*ckin nation in the entire world.
The United States of America, f*ck yeah!
We have worked closely with the awesome American government to establish a strong military graded server park that will endure any nuclear attacks that Kim Jong Un and his evil allies will send at Us.
Along with this move to the greatest country in the universe, we will soon remove all torrents from North Korea, China, Iran, France and Islamistan. American torrents will be seeded with extra power, to ensure that you'll get your american dose extra fast.
America, f*ck yeah!
How much of this is true remains to be seen. April Fool's prank perhaps?
