Paranoid file-sharers are worried about the relaunch of The Pirate Bay. The site returned on February 1 following a police raid in Sweden that took the site offline.
But Motherboard reports that some people think that the new Pirate Bay is actually a clever trap operated by the US government to try and hunt down file-sharers.
Pirate Bay truthers are freaking out over one specific part of the relaunch. The site is using a US company called CloudFlare to cope with the heavy levels of traffic it's receiving after the relaunch.
CloudFlare helps sites stay online and cope with lots of traffic, serving a cached version of sites if the main version can't be reached.
Some people think that the fact that CloudFlare is based in the US means that it's working with the FBI to track everyone who visits The Pirate Bay and downloads files through it. There's no evidence supporting the Pirate Bay conspiracy theory. But that hasn't stopped it spreading.
