Bayfiles, the file-hosting service originally launched by two Pirate Bay co-founders, makes a comeback under new ownership this week. The site disappeared after the 2014 raid on a Stockholm datacenter. The new operators acquired the site's domains and logotype from Fredrik Neij, but will otherwise start from scratch.
The High Court has granted the Premier League permission to continue blocking live pirate streams of football matches in the UK. The football organization obtained a pioneering injunction early 2017, with a second order expiring in May 2018. That has now been renewed by Justice Arnold for the 2018 to 2019 season. Many of the details are shrouded in secrecy.
