Pirate Bay Proxy Owner’s Bank Account Seized by Hollywood Group (TorrentFreak)
Following a request from Hollywood-backed anti-piracy group BREIN, a Dutch bailiff has seized the bank account of a Pirate Bay proxy operator. The owner of the popular proxy site has been involved in a legal battle with BREIN over the past months, who demand that he shuts down his website. The anti-piracy group seized the funds after the proxy owner failed to pay the penalties that were set out in two preliminary injunctions.
