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

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, actually 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 Sunnyvale ring, which put out about 65 terabytes of pirated goods, from games to TV. The Anti-Piracy Agency claimed further they the Sunnyvale ring was in fact the source of all of The Pirate Bay's pirated material. Uh huh.

TPB's Peter Sunde says "it is possible that it's a major source" but is also dubious the Sunnyvale ring is the sole source of the material that 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!]
