Promo Bay, The Pirate Bay’s Music “Label”

18 Apr

So while the record industry tries to pass legislation that reeks of 19th century protectionism, the guys over at The Pirate Bay are hard at work doing new stuff. With their ironically named LOSS project they’re planning to send their servers into space. Well, not space yet, but low-altitude orbits at least. This would be so freaking amazing. And now they will have promotions for artists who want to distribute their music for free. Basically if you are selected to be promoted in a given country, the TPB logo on that country will periodically be replaced by your cover photo/message. I think at least. Read up more at Boing Boing, and Torrentfreak.

There’s also this pearl in the instructions:

No Mr Hetfield. We will not doodle your Lulutallica project. Stop calling us!
