Is the Pirate Bay’s new pet project a live concert broadcasting tool
Will the pub band make a long overdue return?
The infamous torrent group The Pirate Bay are publicising a new service and site The Music Bay to be released in April, to celebrate the 78th birthday of the ‘International Federation of the Phonographic Industry’, one of Europe’s major anti piracy organisations. Little else is known about the service, all TPB are saying is that the music industry should be very worried.
Also announced recently is a new P2P Protocol from BitTorrent inventor Bram Cohen, the new protocol emphasizes live audio and video transmission to millions of users without the use of centralized services.
How is all of this connected? Bram Cohen’s new protocol may be used by The Pirate Bay to enable extremely low latency live video transmission. With a Torrent search engine on top you would be able to search for any band playing anywhere in the world and instantly be transported to the pub or club they are performing in. That would rock.
All I can say for sure is I can’t wait to discover new unknown bands from all over the world.

The four co-founders of Sweden’s file-sharing website  Pirate Bay:  http://thepiratebay.org found guilty.

This won’t be the end of the story. . . 

April 2009 might turn out to be the cruelest month for those who like their movies, music and games free of charge. On Friday, two weeks after Sweden imposed a new law banning online piracy, the four founders of Swedish file-sharing Web site The Pirate Bay were found guilty of breaching copyright and sentenced to a year in jail.

The Swedish court also asked the four, whose average age is 34, to pay 31 million Swedish kronor ($3.7 million) in compensation to copyright holders, which was still some way off the $16.0 million in total sought by companies including Vivendi, Time Warner and Sony. But trade association IFPI, or the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry, claimed the decision was a big victory for the media industry, which has been bedeviled by the wealth of files shared free of charge on sites such as The Pirate Bay.

“You’ve got a very clear ruling that says: The Pirate Bay is illegal in Sweden,” said a spokesman for the IFPI on Friday. Although he admitted that the ruling did not mean the Web site would be shut down, and that the defendants’ decision to appeal meant that the verdict was not yet final, he said that it was a big deterrent against other Web sites and a springboard for other legal steps that could be taken.
