Avoid Censorship: Unblock The Pirate Bay
ThePirateBay has been blocked across several major ISPs all over Europe. All around the world the copyright lobby is censoring so called "pirate" websites, in particular The Pirate Bay.
Since 2011 ISPs in the UK, Netherland, Belgium and now France have been blocking many file sharing websites including The Pirate Bay. However their efforts to seem to be counterproductive as bittorrent and other file sharing traffic is not decreasing.
This is due to the help of information websites such as this one that provide an up to date proxy list for ThePirateBay, and further information on how to avoid censorship using alternate methods. We periodically check our pirate bay proxy list against several major ISPs around Europe to make sure they have not been blocked.

The Pirate Bay was founded in 2003 by a group of Swedish individuals. To this day The Pirate bay offers an index of magnet links and torrent files that allow users to search and download peer to peer file sharing using a BitTorrent Client. TPB requires users to install a BitTorrent Client
before they are able to download any files made available through magnet links on the Pirate Proxy. The Magnet links contains the required information for the BitTorrent client to download the chosen torrent files with the help of trackers and the DHT network. Fortunately, there are several BitTorrent clients to choose from, most popular being uTorrent - a very lightweight piece of software maintained by BitTorrent itself. You could also choose to use another torrent software such as qBittorrent, Vuze or Deluge.
Using The PirateBay, you can download the latest movies, tv shows, music, designs and applications to your device. You can usually find movies and TV shows in a number of different formats suited for different devices with their associated quality listed.
The safest way to download a file from a Pirate Proxy is make sure your internet connection remains untraceable whilst downloading torrents. You can protect your identity and IP by using a virtual private network, or VPN. A VPN routes all of your internet traffic through another IP therefore hiding your real IP. It is important to choose a secure no log VPN, making it impossible for any governments or ISPs to monitor your internet connection whilst downloading torrent files from the pirate bay proxy. It is important to remember that whilst it is good practice to keep you IP protected whilst downloading from TPB, peer-to-peer file share is not illegal in any way. It is only the act of sharing a copyrighted file that may be deemed illegal by governments and media corporations in your jurisdiction.
ThePirateBay remains to be the worlds most popular torrent file index to this day due to it's incredibly simple easy to use interface, size and variety of its index, and its resilience to staying online. Dubbed as "The Galaxy's most resilient BitTorrent site", The Pirate Bay remains impossible to take down. Whilst The PirateBay team have had their fair share of raids and attacks on the website, it is still online till this day. This accompanied by the fact there are now hundreds of pirate bay proxy websites keeping the pirate bay online and circumventing any government blockades. If one pirate bay proxy is taken down, another two will replace it.
