Pirates prepare to sue IFPI for loss of immoral earnings

The IFPI's bid to close down Pirate Bay hasn't just failed - on the back of the publicity of the blocking, they actually helped inflate Pirate Bay's visits - but could prove to be even more embarrassing.

Tele2, the Danish ISP who had been forced to block the site are currently fighting in the courts to be allowed to lift the block. If they're successful, Pirate Bay intends to seek damages from the IFPI. Pirate Bay say they'll seek a reasonable amount - a sly dig at the IFPI/RIAA's inflated legal demands.
