Changes at Pirate Bay

BBC News – Pirate Bay founding group disbands

The Swedish anti-copyright group Piratbyran, which gave rise to the popular file-sharing website The Pirate Bay has disbanded.

Marcin de Kaminski, a founder of Piratbyran, which means “piracy bureau” in English, told BBC News “we don’t feel we are needed” any more.

But the group also decided to close following the death of a co-founder.
