The content industry is using its new method of threatening anybody who tries to help the Pirate Bay with legal action. The ISP, being used by the Norwegian Pirate Party to provide bandwidth, has been forced into revoking the access. Instead of threatening the Norwegian Pirate Party, like they did a week ago in Sweden, they go straight for their ISP. It is simply force majeure being used by well funded international interests.
One week ago the Pirate Party of Sweden (PPSE) received legal personal threats for supplying The Pirate Bay (TPB) with Internet access. They were given a week to make a decision about stopping the provision of TPB with Internet access or face a legal battle. PPSE decided to step aside and have handed the responsibility to the Pirate Party of Norway (PPNO) and the Pirate Party of Catalonia (PPCAT).
