In a Sunday blog post, The Pirate Bay announced new "Low Orbit Server Stations" that will house the site's servers and files on unmanned, GPS-controlled, aircraft drones.

One of the sites administrators, MrSpock, said with the advent of miniature computers such as the Raspberry Pi, a $35 micro computer the size of a thumb drive that includes a WiFi and SD card slot for storage, the site can take its servers far from any law enforcement.
“We’re going to experiment with sending out some small drones that will float some kilometers up in the air,” MrSpock wrote. “This way our machines will have to be shut down with aeroplanes in order to shut down the system. A real act of war.”

I think they might be. They are living in a cave for crying out loud. And they don't really appear to know anything about the Rasberry PI, which was designed to be a basic programming interface for students, not control a plane flying a remote server.
Pirate Bay != host to those files - they just are a directory on where to find them.
Which is the reason torrents have lasted where other file sharing methods have come and gone on a monthly basis.
The reasons torrents never got as huge as Napster is that to 70% of the population using torrents is no different assembling a space shuttle with materials from Home Depot.
To me it's superior in every way by far to things like limewire/napster, but because there's less hand holding it's rocket science to many. There's some kind of super insignificant tech barrier to the masses...the entertainment industry must be thankful for this.
...also the whole drone thing really does make you want to use it just for the cool factor hahahaha.
