En su propio Facebook lo confirman:

We hope that yesterdays little hack proved that we know the internet better than our enemies. Since about 40% of the entire internets traffic consists of torrents enabled by us, you can almost say that we ARE the internets. Fuck with the internets and we'll ridicule you (points at MAFIAA with a retractable baton) until you beg for mercy.



We've hopefully made clear (once again) that we don't run TPB to make money. A profit hungry idiot (points at MAFIAA with a retractable baton) doesn't tell the world that they have partnered with the most hated dictatorship in the world. We can play that stunt though, cause we're still only in it for the fuckin lulz and it doesn't matter to us if thousands of users disband the ship.

We've also learned that many of you need to be more critical. Even towards us. You can't seriously cheer the "fact" that we moved our servers to bloody North Korea. Applauds to you who told us to fuck off. Always stay critical. Towards everyone!

10 years and still running.
We are Schrödingers site and it's up to us whether we want to stay alive or not, or both.

PRESS RELEASE, NEW PROVIDER FOR TPB

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, 3 MARCH 102, 평양 (PYONGYANG).

The Pirate Bay has been hunted in many countries around the world. Not for illegal activities but being persecuted for beliefs of freedom of information. Today, a new chapter is written in the history of the movement, as well as the history of the internets.

A week ago we could reveal that The Pirate Bay was accessed via Norway and Catalonya. The move was to ensure that these countries and regions will get attention to the issues at hand. Today we can reveal that we have been invited by the leader of the republic of Korea, to fight our battles from their network.

This is truly an ironic situation. We have been fighting for a free world, and our opponents are mostly huge corporations from the United States of America, a place where freedom and freedom of speech is said to be held high. At the same time, companies from that country is chasing a competitor from other countries, bribing police and lawmakers, threatening political parties and physically hunting people from our crew. And to our help comes a government famous in our part of the world for locking people up for their thoughts and forbidding access to information.

We believe that being offered our virtual asylum in Korea is a first step of this country's changing view of access to information. It's a country opening up and one thing is sure, they do not care about threats like others do. In that way, TPB and Korea might have a special bond. We will do our best to influence the Korean leaders to also let their own population use our service, and to make sure that we can help improve the situation in any way we can. When someone is reaching out to make things better, it's also ones duty to grab their hand.

chapo. Eso si, la mitad de meneame ya estaba haciendo palmas con las orejas de que buenos que son los de corea del norte xD
han enseñado una buena leccion, aunque creo que los implicados no aprenderan nada de ella
#32 Habría que recopilar los nombres de los meneantes que aplaudieron la idea y de los que les votaron positivo :-)
#32 #37 Por mi parte no era un aplauso por Korea del Norte, era un aplauso por decir: "que le jodan a RIAA, a la MPAA, al FBI y a la CIA", porque lo que hicieron con MegaUpload en Nueva Zelanda lo iban a tener muchísimo más difícil de hacer con TPB en Korea del Norte.
#5 Porque ahora nadie tiene ni idea de dónde están. Se sospecha de Alemania.

#27 #29 Es un fake, confirmado en #24.
#34 Cierto. Ahí lo dicen claramente.
#34 bueno, a lo mejor me como un owned :-D

Pero si que es verdad parte de mi argumento, de lo que al gente le jodia de la noticia, era reconcer que vivian en una dictura y que nuestro Amado Lider era el mejor de los lideres posibles
#40 Ahí ya no me meto :-P Yo recelaba de semejante anfitrión. Me quedo más tranquilo sabiendo que pueden estar en cualquier punto del planeta pero no en Corea (aunque todavía cabe la posibilidad de rizar el rizo).
#27 Lo explican en el link. Si esos datos son ciertos es físicamente imposible (por la velocidad de la luz no daría tiempo físicamente a ir y volver en 50 ms). Además..., como dicen ellos mismos en su Facebook (#24) es falso.
Simplemente han jugado.
