UK Pirate Party seeking donations to fight legal threats against its TPB proxy

azzy (86427) writes "The BPI (music industry body in the United Kingdom) has threatened legal action against leaders of the Pirate Party UK for their continued running of a proxy to ThePirateBay.

The Pirate Party UK is operating this proxy as a high profile fight against corporate-motivated censorship of the internet and is now raising money to help fight this legal action.

PPUK is aiming to assemble a legal team that is capable of putting together a case that will not only keep the proxy in place, but also settle the issues surrounding the arbitrary censorship of the web.
