(Newser) – Things are heating up for BitTorrent search site The Pirate Bay, as lawyers for Prince pressure advertisers to drop it and a Swedish prosecutor promises to sue site administrators. One admin tells Ars Technica that investigators driving cars with Danish license plates are following and photographing Pirate Bay operators -- a move he's inclined to blame on Prince.

"What do they think they can find out by following us around?" asks Peter Sunde, who recalls similar happenings before police raided Pirate Bay servers last year. "Everything we do is digital." Despite mounting pressure, Sunde is keeping it real: "The Internet is too big for morally upset people to get it their way."
