Why is Maritime Piracy No Longer in the News?

The problem hasn't gone away. Pirates seize Taiwanese boat: report
Pirates have seized a Taiwanese fishing boat with 14 crew from Vietnam, China, Indonesia and Taiwan in the most southerly and ambitious raid by Somali pirates yet, European naval forces said yesterday.
The pirates seem to be moving farther off-shore to avoid the naval forces arrayed against them. (Those forces have done some good, after all, just not enough good.)
