The Pirate Bay Founders Issue Post-Verdict Statement: "The Site Will Live On!"
Apr 22, 2009 16:43
Though The Pirate Bay suffered a defeat last week, the founders' latest statement is anything but defeated. They've started the years-long appeals process, and urge TPB users to download and seed as much as possible.
Interestingly, the Head Pirates ask that users stop donating money for them to pay down the fines they've been slapped with: They don't intend to pay a single cent (or whatever the Swedish denomination may be) toward these fines.
We have seen that some people that we don't know have started collecting donations for us, so we can pay those silly fines. We firmly ask you NOT to do this. Do not gather or send any money. We do not want them since we will not pay any fines!
Instead, they request that users seed their torrents as much as they can, bring in new users/pirates, and oh yeah, maybe buy a t-shirt if you really want one.
They've also officially announced that they've started the appeals process, which they estimate will take 2 or 3 years, and all in all seem more convinced than ever that they're in the right. Agree or disagree, you've got to admire the chutzpah of these guys. [The Pirate Bay]
