Hans Pandeya Demands Apology From Us; Says He's Now Put Pirate Bay Acquisition On Hold

from the well,-look-at-that dept

After publishing our post on Hans Pandeya's bizarre and ridiculous attempt to buy The Pirate Bay again, after his failed bid last year (while still pretending that bid succeeded), Mr. Pandeya sent us an email demanding that we issue a correction and an apology for our story. Oddly, he failed to point out a single thing we got wrong in the story, so we're not really sure what to correct and don't see any reason to issue an apology. He did, however, send us a link to another press release that he, himself, sent out, claiming that his own company has "put the acquisition on hold." Uh, yeah. Perhaps that's because there's no acquisition to be had. It also claims that GGF is "commencing an arbitration proceeding" to gain control over The Pirate Bay's domain name. That ought to go over well, considering GGF never actually paid for The Pirate Bay and that deal collapsed. It's difficult to see what kind of claim he thinks he has on the domain now. We eagerly await future emails where he explains. Perhaps, next time, he can include more details to back up his claims.
