The Pirate Bay offline after police raid in Sweden

BitTorrent indexing site The Pirate Bay has been offline since Tuesday morning after police in Sweden raided the site's server room, seizing servers and other equipment.

The site won't load at all, and attempts to load it ultimately result in a timeout in all browsers.

“There has been a crackdown on a server room in Greater Stockholm. This is in connection with violations of copyright law,” Paul Pintér, police national coordinator for the Swedish Police, said in a statement.

A longtime thorn in the side of the entertainment industry, The Pirate Bay has previously been shut down numerous time

The Pirate Bay has previously been shut down numerous times and had its domain seized, prompting the site to change its top level domain on several occasions.

In the past, The Pirate Bay has proven to be extremely resilient to actions from law enforcement agencies. The site claimed it runs on 21 "raid-proof" virtual machines in September 2014.

But the site has had no visible brushes with the law this year — until now.

Svartholm Warg, one of the site's original founders, was sentenced to three and a half years in prison for hacking in October.

Warg and other founders of the site were sentenced to one year in prison for copyright violations in 2009, but the site itself remained operational.

According to TorrentFreak, several other torrent-related sites, including EZTV and Zoink, are also down, indicating this is a larger, coordinated action against file-sharing sites.
