UPDATE from their official overseas Facebook page and official USA site:
"As many of you have heard from various sources, Peace Now Inc Japan had filed for bankruptcy protection on May 6th 2013.
Peace Now USA operates independently from it's Japanese parent company, and we will continue to operate until further notice. Please note, we will no longer accept special order requests, and we will unlikely to stock additional products from here forward.
If you are a fan of Peace Now and Black Peace Now, this is probably the last chance and the only source to collect a piece of this iconic brand, and a piece of gothic lolita history.
Thank you for your continual support throughout these years.
From all of us at Peace Now USA."
My opinion: Rather sad since PN is one of the older brands I'm familiar with. Still remember seeing them in the early GLBs. The current state of the Japan's economy hit them pretty hard and I can definitely see why. Such a pity.
