Submission + - Piratebay to stop serving Torrents, go Magnet-only (torrentfreak.com)

ktetch-pirate writes: "In a month The Pirate Bay will no longer offer downloads of .torrent files. Instead, the largest torrent site on the Internet will only provide so-called magnet links to its visitors. The first step in this direction was made today with The Pirate Bay replacing the current default torrent download links with magnets. Could this be the end of an era?"

Submission + - 5 years on from the Pirate Bay Raid (blogspot.com)

ktetch-pirate writes: "It's been 5 years since the American and Swedish Governments tried to take down torrent site The Pirate Bay. Despite the raid, two court cases, and injunctions, the site still goes on. The other consequence of the raid? The explosion of Pirate Parties internationally, and the election of their candidates."
