Finnish anti-piracy site pirates thepiratebay content

An anonymous reader writes "Finnish copyright lobby TTVK Ry, that earlier ordered the artist promotion site http://promobay.org/ to be censored as "thepiratebay subpage" and later admitted that it's legal (http://torrentfreak.com/pirate-bay-promos-unblocked-in-finland-with-music-industry-blessing-130206/) and got the police to confiscate 9-year-old's winnie the pooh laptop on suspicion of having illegally downloaded a single album (http://torrentfreak.com/police-raid-9-year-old-pirate-bay-girl-confiscate-winnie-the-pooh-laptop-121122/) launched an anti-piracy website http://piraattilahti.fi./ The site closely resembles thepiratebay, and if you take a closer look, you'll notice that css has been directly copied from thepiratebay.se, complete with original site name in comments (http://piraattilahti.fi/css/css.css, pastebin mirror: http://pastebin.com/pV2rjNyb)

Of course one interesting question is, how on earth did they manage to pirate thepiratebay content, considering that they managed to get court orders for major ISP's to censor access to thepiratebay? (http://torrentfreak.com/court-issues-new-blocking-order-against-the-pirate-bay-120611/)"
