Anonymous and piratebay are teaming up to fight growing anti-piracy measures, including SOPA.
In the fall of 2010 “Anonymous” started Operation Payback, the longest and most widespread attack on anti-piracy groups, lawyers and lobbyists in history.
Initially DDoS assaults were started against the MPAA, RIAA and anti-piracy company AiPlex Software because these outfits had targeted The Pirate Bay.
Those DDoS attacks were later replicated against many other targets that have spoken out against piracy or for copyright, resulting in widespread media coverage.
This week the tag #OperationPayback is appearing once again in several places as “Anonymous” is once again targeting anti-piracy outfits who managed to strike against The Pirate Bay.
The Pirate Bay, meanwhile, is encouraging users in the blocked countries to get prepared to use TOR or a VPN.
But the may not even have to…
In the Netherlands the local Pirate Party already set up a proxy at tpb.piratenpartij.nl, and they are determined to provide Dutch users access to the torrent site in the future.
And so it goes on.
