The Piratebay have just announced their next plan to avoid shutdown. They are sending out GPS controlled drones that will fly “some kilometers up in the air” to carry their anonymizing forwarding servers, which now standing at a grand total of 90MB will fit safely on to a Raspberry Pi. No, it’s not April Fools day just yet, this from the TPG website:

“This way our machines will have to be shut down with aeroplanes in order to shut down the system.”

“With modern radio transmitters we can get over 100Mbps per node up to 50km away. For the proxy system we’re building, that’s more than enough.”

"I for one welcome our new quadcopter overlords".

This comes only a month after the pirate bay announced their entrance in to the world of 3D printing piracy. It seems despite the will of the courts the pirate bay will not be going down without somewhat more of a fight.
