In a recent raid The Pirate Bay and EZTV as well as a few other sites were taken down. https://torrentfreak...es-worldwide-141209/
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.
But of course, life goes on at http://www.demonoid.pw/
(and many others).
In other news, rumour has it that The Pirate Bay is relocating to somewhere in South America. (I have no secondary confirmation on this yet.) https://torrentfreak...-police-raid-141211/
EZTV SLOWLY RECOVERS FROM SWEDISH POLICE RAID
BY ERNESTO ON DECEMBER 11, 2014 C: 8
While there is still no sign of The Pirate Bay, another major torrent site is starting to recover following the police raid earlier this week. The popular TV-torrent distribution group EZTV is starting to upload new shows again as some of its servers come back online.
Earlier this week Swedish police raided a nuclear-proof data center built into a mountain complex in the city of Nacka.
The target of the raid was The Pirate Bay but collateral damage caused several other torrent sites to go down as well. This included EZTV, the go-to place for many torrenting TV fans.
After nearly two days of downtime EZTV is slowly starting to crawl back up. TF spoke to the EZTV crew who confirmed that several servers are up and running again and that the site’s services are coming back online.
Yeah, it's like that.
The main EZTV is still down for me, but it's up here: https://eztv-proxy.net
Oh! Another mole!
