A mysterious press release popped up on Business Wire yesterday that claimed Hans Pandeya, who last summer failed to buy The Pirate Bay, has returned with another bid to acquire the infamous site.

"On 30 June 2009, Global Gaming Factory X announced its intention to buy the popular BitTorrent site The Pirate Bay. It also announced its intention to buy shares of Swedish P2P company Peerialism AB. Peerialism develops solutions for data distribution and distributed storage based on new P2P technology. The transaction is planned to take place in August 2009.
