The Pirate Bay Launched Threatening Site

The world’s largest BitTorrent tracker The Pirate Bay is known for being a thorn in the side of the entertainment industry for a while. Nevertheless, it hinted that things still can take a turn for the worse. The matter is a new project launched by the TPB crew, titled “The Music Bay”, and promising that the music industry now has a great reason to be very, very afraid.

First of all, it was several years ago that The Pirate Bay registered a domain which hasn’t been very active thus far – themusicbay.org. Actually, when it was launched, there were plans to develop the most efficient music-sharing software ever. However, the plans were put aside because some other projects were more important.

Nevertheless, the domain didn’t fall into oblivion, as recently rumors started to circle that this domain name might be put to use after all. Although at the moment it is setup to serve ads for TPB site, as soon as this spring The Music Bay could be hosting a great surprise for the entertainment industry.

For example, the currently active subdomain fear.themusicbay.org is now containing a hint that something is “coming soon”. However, The Pirate Bay operators are reluctant to reveal any specific details about the site. At the same time, their intentions are quite obvious, considering their words related to the record labels. Precisely, they said that the industry can’t even imagine what is going to be rolled out in the near future. Although the industry has been complaining bitterly about piracy for years, now they have a real reason to be scared. The only thing The Pirate Bay crew released is that “it is going to be a special surprise for the IFPI’s birthday”. Perhaps, even a festival will be organized in Rome, where IFPI was born. IFPI, by the way, is the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry, founded under Italian fascist government of Benito Mussolini in April of 1933.

No more details have been released by The Pirate Bay, so it will be not just a big surprise for the music industry, but for everyone, including us. As for now, all the rumors and comments can be interpreted in many ways – without any information on the oncoming project, it can only be treated now as a mere domain name, registered and used for the sole purpose of threatening the already paranoid record labels .

maxx237 avatarSpanish researchers say small band of entrepreneurs profit from torrent file-sharing
As few as 100 uploaders are responsible for supplying three quarters of all downloads on torrent networks, according to Spanish researchers.

A study by the Carlos III University of Madrid identified and investigated the motivations of the uploaders of 55,000 files on file-sharing sites Mininova and The Pirate Bay and found that a small number of people were behind most files accessed through the sites.

"The success of BitTorrent is due to the fact that a few users make a large number of contents available in exchange for receiving economic benefits,” said the authors of the report.

“A small group of users of these applications (around one hundred) is responsible for 66% of the content that is published and 75% of the downloads. In other words: the great success of a massively used application like BitTorrent depends on a few users.”

According to the researchers the “super uploaders” fall into two categories. In the first camp are "fake publishers", which include organisations fighting illegal downloading by publishing large quantities of false files and malicious users planting infected software.

The second group includes “top publishers” that post swathes of content via torrents and make a profit from online advertising and VIP subscriptions.

"In order to remain anonymous, many of them rent servers from companies that perform this service and then publish contents from those servers," the authors said in a statement.

The report suggests that by removing the financial incentive from these uploaders or taking out their uploading capability the music and film companies could make a large dent in P2P piracy.

"If these users lose interest in this activity or are eliminated from the system, BitTorrent’s traffic will be drastically reduced," the authors said.

“If these users lost their incentive, either because of a decrease in advertising income or due to having to pay very expensive fines, BitTorrent would very likely cease to offer these contents, which would make people stop using the application on a massive scale.”

jezuitx avatarHonestly what could TPB do to threaten the music business even more? Make illegal downloads freer? Short of them hosting every CD and record for the last decade so you can find EVERYTHING at one site (which will never happen) it's just going to be like every other torrent site that's somewhat popular.
