Pirate Bay says it was ‘persecuted for beliefs of freedom’ The Pirate Bay, the file-sharing website forced to set sail from Sweden last week, claims to have set up business in North Korea. The group said on its website that has accepted an offer from Pyongyang to use its network – and its ship will henceforth bear the North Korean flag. However, analysts have cast doubt on whether it is being hosted there.

The Pirate Bay, the notorious file-sharing site that was ejected from Sweden last week, claimed to have set up shop in North Korea on Monday should we be worried?

In a post on its website, the Pirate Bay said Pyongyang had invited it to use its network and the site has, in return, altered its sea ship logo to bear the North Korean flag.

But the authenticity of the claim was cast into doubt by tracking searches conducted by a number of tech websites.

In a release posted on The Pirate Bay site on Sunday, the group said that it had been “persecuted for beliefs of freedom of information” around the world.

We do have our doubts and a reason to believe it’s a Hoax but time will tell.
