IOC Wants to Stop Pirate Bay

As the Beijing summer games continue, the International Olympic Committee has called on the Swedish government to stop a website with links to unauthorised video of the opening ceremony.

The IOC says the Pirate Bay file-sharing site has made available more than 1 million downloads of the August 8th ceremony, referred to by committee Vice President Gunilla Lindberg as “rampant piracy”.

In response, the Pirate Bay has defiantly renamed itself the Beijing Bay.

Swedish Justice Minister Beatrice Ask says the government cannot intervene in individual cases, and she says that the IOC should turn to police and prosecutors.
