The Pirate Bay has been hard to reach for more than a day, causing concern among some BitTorrent users. The outage is likely caused by technical issues, so the site is expected to resurface soon. Meanwhile, some of the site's proxies and its Tor domain are still working fine.
Several major Hollywood studios, Amazon, and Netflix have filed a lawsuit against Set Broadcast, LLC, which sells the popular IPTV service SET TV. The companies accuse the service and its operators of facilitating mass copyright infringement. In addition to hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages, the movie studios request an injunction to stop the infringing activity.
