A few days ago, Finnish anti-piracy organization CIAPC aped The Pirate Bay’s design (and code), prompting TPB to threaten a lawsuit and what may have been the most ironic catfight in history. Well, it would seem that CIAPC has called TPB’s bluff… from TorrentFreak:
After recovering from a DDoS on his company’s site, CIAPC chief Antti Kotilainen now says that he welcomes legal action from The Pirate Bay, not because he feels he could win any case, but because the process would bring certain benefits.
Currently the people running The Pirate Bay operate in anonymity, a veil that anti-piracy companies around the world have failed to lift. Kotilainen sees potential legal action as a way to cut through the mystery.
