The Pirate Bay sometimes abbreviated to TPB is an online index of digital content of entertainment media and software. In April , the website's founders Peter Sunde , Fredrik Neij , and Gottfrid Svartholm were found guilty in the Pirate Bay trial in Sweden for assisting in copyright infringement and were sentenced to serve one year in prison and pay a fine. Subsequently, proxy websites have been providing access to it. The Pirate Bay has sparked controversies and discussion about legal aspects of file sharing , copyright , and civil liberties and has become a platform for political initiatives against established intellectual property laws and a central figure in an anti-copyright movement. They have both been accused of "assisting in making copyrighted content available" by the Motion Picture Association of America.
Despite its staunch anti-piracy policy, the software giant appears to be displaying links to popular sites used for swapping copyrighted material. Google's mission is to index the world wide web and make it easier for users to find what they're looking for. The search engine's new "highlighted answers" are a simple and effective way for people to quickly see a list of most popular results for their search query. But it was pointed out this week that a search for "best torrent sites" on Google's US homepage brings up an easy access list of some of the most notorious file-sharing sites on the web. The Pirate Bay, KickAss Torrents and x are all presented on the carousel at the top of the results page, which then leads through to search results about those specific sites.

Releasers and torrent racers are the select few counted on by millions to bring the latest movies, music and video games to the wider Internet in record time. One such person, a year-old school kid, eventually gained access to elite piracy sites and went on to become the top uploader on one of the world's most famous BitTorrent trackers. Having never seen anything like it before, James as we shall call him for now became hooked, and quickly began to display a trait inherent in many addicted file-sharers.
