The Pirate Bay is immune to SOPA Over on Techdirt, Mike Masnick has pointed out the mother of all ironies: The Pirate Bay, one of the largest outlets of copyright infringement, would be immune to the takedown tendrils of the imminently incoming Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). Apparently it all comes down to the fact that The Pirate Bay has a .org domain — and according to Masnick, the current version of the SOPA bill working its way through congress excludes American domestic domains from being the target of takedown notices from copyright holders. In this case, a “domestic domain” is any domain that comes from a TLD run by an American registry — and sure enough, .org’s registry is Public Interest Registry, a US non-profit based in Virginia.

The Pirate Bay The Pirate Bay (commonly abbreviated TPB) is a website that provides magnet links to facilitate peer-to-peer file sharing using the BitTorrent protocol. The Pirate Bay is the most-used File Sharing site on the World Wide Web. It was founded in Sweden in 2003. In 2009, the website’s founders were found guilty in Sweden for facilitating illegal downloading of copyrighted material. In some countries, ISPs have been ordered to block access to the website. Since then, proxies have been made all around the world providing access to The Pirate Bay. History

isoHunt For years isoHunt's founder had been in legal battles with conglomerates of IP rights holders over allegations of copyright infringing activity. A settlement with MPAA was reached in 2013, that stipulated $110 million reimbursement for damages and the site's closure that followed on October 21, 2013. By the end of October, 2013 two sites with content presumably mirrored from isohunt.com were reported in computer media. One of them — isohunt.to — became a de facto replacement of the original site.

Welcome to project Libellus, an ongoing attempt to provide a library of classical Latin (and Greek) texts with minimal redistribution restrictions. The archive is physically located at the University of Washington, Seattle, and is currently being run by Konrad Schroder and Owen Ewald. The intent of the project is to make available fairly good-quality texts at no cost; it is not to provide guaranteed top quality texts. If you are willing to pay for extreme quality, there are other organizations that will allow you to do that.
