ISP used by Pirate Bay founder has their accounts seized, Merry Christmas PRQ

PRQ, the ISP that Pirate Bay founder uses, has their accounts seized again

PayPal has attacked the ISP setup by Pirate Bay founders, PRQ, where they've banned them from using the payment service and have seized all funds active in their accounts.

This isn't the first time either, where they were initially slapped with an account freeze that would stay in place for up to 180 days. At this time, PayPal recommended that PRQ set up a second account while the dispute was active for the first, and that after the dispute was finalized, the second account would be merged with the original.


After PRQ had done this, PayPal slapped a freeze order on their second account. PRQ have taken to a statement to say:


First they froze our primary account without any prior notice - we can't even receive funds to it. After we contacted their 'support' they stated that the support could not help us, BUT the person who was responsible for our account should contact us within a couple of days.
