The Pirate Bay Is Back, Again

The Pirate Bay is troubled. With its questionable legality, the torrent site has trouble staying online for more than a few days at a time. It’s been really up and down recently and we’re sick of posting about it, to be honest. It’s still good to know though, so for your convenience (and ours!) we’re now keeping of track of whether it’s up or down in one place.


02/13/2015: The Pirate Bay is down.

Update 02/14/2015: It’s back!

Update 05/05/2015: The Pirate Bay is down, again.

Update 05/19/2015: It’s back! But Sweden finally seized the domain. The Pirate Bay did manage to get the .se domain to redirect to various other domains (.vg, .la, .am, .gs, etc.) that point to a functioning site—for now.

I may be alone in thinking this, but for all the legitimacy that Gizmodo is going for (based on sponsorship choices), wouldn't it be good to kind of distance yourself from pirate sites?

Personally I am trying to stop stealing stuff online... So I'm not on a high horse but I'm sure I'm a little biased. Thoughts?
