It had all gone quiet for a while on The Pirate Bay’s IPREDator service, which will charge users five Euros a month for anonymous access to BitTorrent through a virtual private network (VPN). However, on Friday, people who’d registered their interest were emailed with an announcement that it’s finally going into beta testing. “We’re very sorry for the delay. It’s just to be safe rather than sorry, regarding the technical aspects. It” very safe now at least!” says the email.
