The Pirate Bay has been pirated, after a copy of itself was uploaded to itself as a torrent. The meta nature of this amuses me. I'm not sure what I think of the people who did this - at one level they're making a stand against hypocrisy, by ensuring that even they themselves loose money thanks to large scale copyright infringement. Although the irony seems to be that if the sale falls through and that is attributed to this torrenting, it could be that it will mirror those figures for software and music, in that it's not actually "revenue" they were ever going to get, because (in this case) it's looking like the purchaser has no money.
