5000+ Artists Line Up For a Pirate Bay Promotion

April 6th, 2012

“I have even gone so far that I have left my major record label and started up my own. I call it: ‘Do It Yourself Bitch Productions.'”


Via: TorrentFreak:

Record labels and Hollywood have described The Pirate Bay as one of the biggest threats to their business, but thousands of artists clearly disagree with this view. In recent weeks more than 5000 independent artists have signed up to be promoted by the world’s largest torrent site. Those who were lucky enough to be featured are overwhelmed by the career boost and the positive responses from the public.

For many independent artists obscurity is a bigger problem than piracy, but it’s a problem that The Pirate Bay is trying to solve.

Earlier this year the site rolled out a new promotion platform for filmmakers, musicians, writers and all other artists alike. To help them reach an audience of tens of millions of people, The Pirate Bay started offering the artists a prime advertising spot on the site’s homepage, replacing the iconic logo.

    Which means it’s probably only a matter of days/weeks before a takedown campaign similar to that waged against Megaupload and their competitors is unleashed on the Pirate Bay’s decentralized anti-organization.
