Use The Pirate Bay Browser and stick two fingers up to the authorities and corporations who jailed the Pirate Bay creators

Help these two prisoners by sending them comfort items whilst they rot away in prison. Gottfrid can only receive letters whilst Peter can get letters, books and vegan candy!
These two prisoners are in jail for doing something that Google and BING do everyday and make millions from. The only difference is that Google and Microsoft work hand in hand with the US Police State authorities such as the NSA, GCHQ and the CIA.
As these companies are doing the bidding of the empire whilst The Pirate Bay isn’t they have been targeted and the owners unfairly jailed.
So why not help these two out whilst they are stuck in jail as political prisoners for doing something Google a multi billion dollar company does constantly but on a much larger scale and is given a free pass from the Government to carry on doing it.
As Julian Assange just recently said in an interview, Google is basically a privatised NSA that collects as much data as possible from everyone it can. He said:
“It is collecting as much information about people as possible, storing it, indexing it, and using it to create profiles of people and then selling that to advertisers and others.”
“Those are the same procedures that security agencies go through. That is why the NSA has latched on top of what Google is doing.”
Watch the interview below.
Julian Assange: Google Is Like The NSA
A search engine like Pirate Bay or Google is just that – a way to search for items hosted on other computers. The search engines don’t host the files themselves they just supply a mechanism for searching for certain files JUST like Google.
I wonder how many “illegal” documents, videos, films, music, pictures and other items can be found with a Google or YouTube.com search? Lots – I know because I find them constantly!
So if you want to screw big business and the crackdown on Internet freedom help these two prisoners and continue to use the Pirate Bay by going through “proxies” – just search for “Pirate Bay Proxies” or if you have WAMP Server on your PC or a LINUX server that can run PHP scripts download this script to find out which proxies are not being blocked by your ISP.
Just change the file extension from .txt to .php before you run it from your server.
If you are on a Windows machine you can download WAMP, set the port to 8888 so you can run APACHE and IIS alongside each other and run PHP from your Windows computer.
Setting WAMP up on a Windows PC is pretty straight forward but if you do run into problems this article will help you troubleshoot some common issues you might face.
If you want to know other ways to protect yourself online when you are constantly being monitored server and client side, by your ISP, by your search engines and the websites that you visit ontop of the emails you send and receive then you might want to read this detailed article by myself on ways to limit the snooping that is possible.
Using Pirate Bay
Despite it supposedly being banned more and more people are pointing their servers to it so that you can use it. If you want do to the same hire a server in a freedom loving country like Iceland (not the USA or UK!) and set your DNS to point at the Pirate Bay IP address.
Now to use the Pirate Bay without getting caught – and by that I mean not getting a letter kindly warning you not to use it through in the UK. To do so you can do all of the following.
If you are being blocked from the Pirate Bay by your ISP then you have a number of choices.
On clicking the page will change (usually to an advert with a blue bar at the top) and in the top right corner will be another countdown saying “Please Wait”. Usually after 5 seconds it will say “SKIP AD” and on clicking it you will end up at the Pirate Bay mirror site.
2. Use a proxy to access the Pirate Bay. There are many free proxies out there and you can find a good list at http://nntime.com/proxy-list-01.htm. Use a tool like FoxyProxy to manage your proxy lists and toggle between them. Or you can go into your browsers network / proxy settings and manually enter the IP address and port number you want to use.
3. Download the new Pirate Bay Browser or the Mozilla TOR Browser. Both of which access the TOR network to help disguise your internet footprint by bouncing your HTTP requests through a series of servers. As the TOR website explains.
“Tor protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location. Tor works with many of your existing applications, including web browsers, instant messaging clients, remote login, and other applications based on the TCP protocol.”
With all the outrage surrounding the NSA spying on ALL American citizens and the recent revelations that they are using this information not only to catch terrorists but to catch petty criminals, drug dealers, tax avoiders and to spy on and blackmail politicians and judges it is in everyone’s best interests that they tighten up on their Internet Security.
As this article I wrote explains there are a number of measures you can take to reduce your Internet footprint and whilst you might be totally invisible you can blend into the background.
So do yourself a favour and use the Pirate Bay browser or the TOR Mozilla Browser. Not only does making use of the TOR network help protect your privacy but the Pirate Bay Browser will let you access a number of Pirate Bay Mirror sites and bypass any censorship that your ISP or country may have introduced.
Once installed when you open the .EXE you will connect to the TOR network.
Once connected you can use the Firefox based browser that comes with The Pirate Bay software to surf the web and access various torrent sites like Bitsnoop, Torrentz and of course various Pirate Bay proxies where people have pointed their own domains at the site as mirrors to keep it alive. The more they shut the sites down the more they will spawn like a virus.
All your Pirate Bay Mirror sites and other Torrent sites are linked at the top in the icon bar. Pick one and then carry out your search for movies, applications or other content.
As you can see it’s just a search engine like Google which makes it very unfair that the Pirate Bay is being blocked by ISP’s as Google also indexes illegal content such as porn and copyrighted material.
This is a search for the US TV show Dexter.
Like most search engines once you run a search you get your results.
As you can see from the results on the right there are two columns, seeders and leachers.
You want to choose an item with as many seeders (uploaders) and as few leachers (downloaders) as possible to get a quick download.
You can also tell from the names of the file what sort they are e.g if the file has the word CAM in it then it’s a poor quality camera in a cinema job.
If it’s HDTV quality it will be a bigger better quality file and BRRip is a BluRay copy.
Check for comments under each torrent download page to see what people have rated the audio and video quality and the type of file you will be downloading.
There are plenty of programs that will play all formats and I suggest downloading VLC Media player as well as your standard software to play .avi and .mp4 movies as it will play almost any format of movie file you might download.
Clicking on the file you want to download will open up the result page. Hopefully you will get comments telling you the quality of the file, the type of file, the quality of sound and video and other information.
Click on “Get This Torrent” to download your torrent file.
When you want to download a torrent from the Pirate Bay you will first need to have a torrent client. There are many out there including:
I use utorrent myself as it’s very easy to use and configure. It lets you set a folder for movies currently being downloaded, then you can move them to a “finished” folder once complete.
You can easily see which files are seeding or leaching at the time and you can change download and upload rates from unlimited to 1KB as well as set a proxy up to pass data through and change the port number all traffic passes through.
Once you have one installed your application of choice you can just click on the torrent in your search results and it will open up in the client and start downloading.
As you can see whilst you download the file you will also be uploading at the same time. This way you are not just taking without giving back the files you have already leached.
However be-warned, ISP’s are also on the lookout for people downloading (leaching) and uploading (seeding) torrents so you need to protect yourself.
Preventing Being Tracked Downloading
Some of the ways to stop or reduce people or companies from seeing you download torrents include the following and as always with security (in this case your own) it is better to use a variety of defence methods than just one:
-Using someone else’s WIFI or network. If your neighbour has an unlocked wi-fi or you can get onto a cafe, hospital or other open WI-FI networks with applications like “The Cloud” that let you use their WI-FI network for free.
-Using an anonymous proxy that doesn’t leak identifying information or even better a VPN. A paid for tool like BTGuard which is both a proxy and encryption tool which helps prevent your ISP throttle your traffic.
-Using a block list which will mean that all traffic is bounced around ISP routers so that they cannot scan the traffic, PeerBlock is an application that you can download that will do this although other Torrent applications can accept the uploading of lists of IP addresses into the application as well. PeerBlock just runs on your PC as you run your P2P software.
-Setting your download port to a common port for HTTP traffic such as 80 or 8080/8888 so that it doesn’t look obvious to your ISP that you are downloading P2P data. Most people use a “random port” but it is better to look like you are downloading HTTP content especially if you are encrypting your traffic as well.
-Limiting your upload rate to a minimum. Although this violates the spirit of P2P (sharing) the people going after you for stealing copyrighted material are more interested in those spreading (uploading) the content rather than downloading it.
-Ensuring you force outgoing traffic to be encrypted. This will help prevent your ISP see that you are using BitTorrent traffic and may prevent them throttling your bandwidth.
-Set a download cap on your traffic. Even if you are encrypting your traffic some ISP’s may see the amount you are downloading and throttle it if they think you are up to no good.
-Using an application like PeerBlock which will block traffic from known bad IP addresses such as P2P blocklists, known bad IP addresses, spyware, FBI and copyright monitoring sites and so on. It is worth downloading and just sits in the background running as you do you’re downloading.
As with most security measures a wide range of different measures is much better than just relying on one system.
Hopefully this article will help you make use of The Pirate Bay if you have been blocked from accessing the website by your ISP then The Pirate Bay browser, UTorrent and Peerblock will help you out.
Remember the founders of The Pirate Bay do not deserve to be in prison. They are like the criminals that refuse to grass when they are interviewed. Because they won’t play ball with the authorities like Google and BING they are just criminals in the eyes of the Empire.
So stick two fingers up to the Empire and use to download your movies and hopefully Hollywood will soon get it into their thick heads that people want to watch films ASAP without going to the cinema all the time.
Netflix and Amazon TV do a good job for a cheap price but they don’t have the latest programmes and films on as soon as you want.
If they can sort that out people will be willing to pay a small fee once a month instead of using P2P.
Therefore the authorities need to come up with a cheap fix for their biggest problem instead of jailing people and just getting ripped off.
