It's a country opening up

The Pirate Bay has announced via a blog post that they will be using North Korea as a haven to serve pages without facing prosecution from copyright authorities.
We believe that being offered our virtual asylum in Korea is a first step of this country's changing view of access to information. It's a country opening up and one thing is sure, they do not care about threats like others do. In that way, TPB and Korea might have a special bond. We will do our best to influence the Korean leaders to also let their own population use our service, and to make sure that we can help improve the situation in any way we can. When someone is reaching out to make things better, it's also ones duty to grab their hand.There are some doubts about the whole situation - the "Kim Jung-Bay" signed blog post itself only suggests a "new provider", and while traceroutes have shown traffic going through North Korea, though there is also a thorough technical explanation of how it could be faked.
