PRQ, a hosting company started by two founders of the Pirate Bay, has been raided by police. As a result of the raid, a number of public and private torrent sites, as well as some sports streaming websites were taken down. The Pirate Bay appeared to be down at the same time, but the site attributed the outage to a power failure. Owner of PRQ Mikael Viborg claimed that the police were "looking for four servers," potentially related to intellectual property theft.
