Paramount can not file a suit againt the Pirate Bay since they lay outside the jurisdiction of US law. The servers for the site are not in the US.
Cool. This is actually good information, and a reason, I can see, for perhaps amending the current code. But the entirely new law goes way too far, in my opinion (and, in the opinion of many others), and, as I mentioned before, completely subverts due process.
