Submission + - UK Pirate Party seeking donations to fight legal threats against its TPB proxy (pirateparty.org.uk)

azzy writes: The BPI (music industry body in the United Kingdom) has threatened legal action against leaders of the Pirate Party UK for their continued running of a proxy to ThePirateBay.

The Pirate Party UK is operating this proxy as a high profile fight against corporate-motivated censorship of the internet and is now raising money to help fight this legal action.

PPUK is aiming to assemble a legal team that is capable of putting together a case that will not only keep the proxy in place, but also settle the issues surrounding the arbitrary censorship of the web.
