The Pirate Bay resurfaces at a new domain following seizure

The Pirate Bay's move to the Caribbean retreat of Sint Maarten this summer didn't last long, as Torrent Freak today reports its domain has been seized by authorities, ostensibly under pressure from copyright holders keen to shut the file-sharing site down. Unfortunately for them, thepiratebay.ac is already up and running in the equally obscure realm of Ascension Island. Because of its links to the UK, that mid-Atlantic volcanic island will serve as merely a halfway house en route to the Peruvian-registered thepiratebay.pe, which is where The Pirate Bay intends to operate from for the longer term. And beyond that, the group already has numerous other domain names in reserve, according to Torrent Freak, so the global game of cat and mouse with the entertainment industry's enforcers looks set to continue for a while yet.
