Swedes Claim They've Killed the Source of The Pirate Bay's Power With 'Biggest Ever' Raid

With the "biggest ever" piracy raid in Sweden's history—taking down a server with "data equivalent to 16,000 movies"—the Swedish Anti-Piracy Agency says they've killed the source of all The Pirate Bay's pirated material.

The raid, launched on a server owned by the Nordic file sharing ring Sunnyvale, took place during The Pirate Bay trial of the epoch. The Swedish Anti-Piracy Agency says that by taking down that server, they caused the collapse of the entire 10-server ring, which put out about 65 terabytes of pirated goods, from games to TV. The Anti-Piracy Agency claimed further they were source of all of TPB's pirated material. Uh huh.

TPB's Peter Sunde says "it is possible that it's a major source" but is also dubious they're the sole source of what makes TPB tick, since "more than 800,000 people have uploaded to The Pirate Bay."

So, uh, who do you believe? [The Local - Thanks Andreas!]
