I guess this is better suited for the discussion mailinglist.

Thanks for mentioning, especially since the Pirate Bay is real landmark.

There are more sides to this story. Just take the view of Peter Sunde
[1]. Not to dramatize the issue, but would this not be more similar to
Silk Road having been shut down? Copyright laws are quite clear, you
might like them to be different, but that is another debate. Then again
the Pirate Bay also offered non-copyrighted material, and taking down is
quite a severe measure.

It's not my call to make, but such a statement might lead to the wrong
conclusions about the FSFE for the casual reader.
