The pirate bay advertise!

 

Even though the Pirate Bay is black listed by the record companies, and by extension the artists, managers decided to take advantage of the huge traffic and provide advertising space to promote artists (musicians, writers, cinematographers, etc.) .

 

The plan started from the beginning of the year, with a certain confidence to achieve, but now they are impressed by the engagment, since so far, more than 5000 artists have expressed their interest , with 90% of whom are musicians who obviously know that obscurity is a bigger problem than piracy.

 

The artist who wants to advertise should give something of his work for free, but the gain is definitely greater. A typical example is George Barnett, who succeeded in a few days to get more than 4.000 fans on the Facebook Page  he maintai while the video got 85.000 views!!

 

However, the aim of  the Pirate Bay is not to create new stars, but something greater for all:

We are in the top 60 sites worldwide. This event fills us with the responsibility to use our website for a greater good. When I think it, it’s silly all the rest of the Top 100 sites to foist advertisements for their own benefit. We proceeded with this move with love for fun and culture, therefore,we represent everything that is not accounted by large the companies

 

Note that one of the hardcore supporters of this movement is Paulo Coelho.
