The geek community is still recovering from the abrupt removal of The Pirate Bay from the internet which took place on December 11. Amidst all the drama and disappointment it is clear that there is still no stopping the internet from replicating, copying and distributing pirated information. It seems that taking down one Torrent site will only make way for another two to replace the existing problem for the authorities. The folks over at Venturebeat.com are running with a hot story this week claiming that The Open Bay is a new online venture to continue the work started by The Pirate Bay. The new online service allows anyone with “minimal knowledge of how the Internet and websites work” to deploy their own version of The Pirate Bay online. It is apparently becoming an open source engine of The Pirate Bay website, with the fate of Open Bay now residing in the hands of the worldwide community to take the movement forward.
