Swedish authorities closed the site after several raids on May 31. The site reopened three days later using servers in The Netherlands.
Figures released by Alexa.com, a US-based Internet monitoring company, showed that traffic to the Pirate Bay had doubled since the site reopened, Dagens Nyheter said.
According to the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), the site makes more than 157,000 illegal files available including recent releases such as "The Da Vinci Code", "Mission Impossible: III", and "Poseidon".
