p2pnet view P2P:- Are Vivendi Universal, EMI, Warner Music and Sony Music in for a rude surprise?
A Pirate Bay insider “has just confirmed to TorrentFreak that the major record labels have good reason to be afraid, very afraid”, it says.
A few years ago the TPB registered themusicbay.org with plans to “create the most efficient music sharing system ever built”, says the story.
But “these were put aside as other projects needed more urgent attention”, it says.
However, rumor has it The Music Bay domain, currently setup to serve ads for The Pirate Bay website, might be put to use after all.
Says the post >>>
The currently active subdomain fear.themusicbay.org is currently displaying a “comming soon” [sic] title so TorrentFreak caught up with a Pirate Bay insider to learn more about the plans for the site. Although the Pirate Bay crew is reluctant to release any specific details, their intentions are obvious.
“The music industry can’t even imagine what we’re planning to roll out in the coming months. For years they’ve complained bitterly about piracy, but if they ever had a reason to be scared it is now,” TorrentFreak was told. “It will be a special surprise for IFPI’s 78th birthday, and we’re thinking of organizing a huge festival in Rome where IFPI was founded.”
At the moment (9:06 am Pacific), all you see on themusicbay.org is “down”
