You might have heard of the recent TPB’s project named The Promo Bay already. The new service is meant to offer indie artists an opportunity to get featured on the main page of The Pirate Bay, which is undoubtedly an incredible chance to be seen and heard by the huge audience of the largest torrent tracker in the world. The service is absolutely legal, as the content creators upload their videos and links themselves, thus breaking the cover and giving permission to everyone to download their works.
You can reach the service at promobay.org and see that it is extremely simple. If you are an artist, then you have to login through your Facebook account to prove that you are real and upload your YouTube video. The team of The Promo Bay set a few strict rules for artists to get featured: first of all, they should login though Facebook for the reason mentioned above. Then, they should have a video of any kind – even the writers should make a video of themselves reading the first page of the book (apparently, it’s easier for moviemakers and musicians). Finally (but still optional), artists are asked to provide a magnet link to their works – this makes sense for the project, as it was launched by The Pirate Bay who is a torrent index working with magnet links.
If you are not a creator but a consumer of content, then just visit The Promo Bay website and watch the videos – if you like something, you can find a brief description of creators and links to their content there. Once again, the service is absolutely legitimate, and all the uploaders are copyright owners who gave their permission to share their works for free.
The luckiest ones will be picked up by the site operators to be featured on the main page of The Pirate Bay – and that will be a definite success. Each time a new band shows up on the main page of The Pirate Bay, the number of views of their video rockets. Thus far, some 1,500 artists have uploaded their works to the service (overwhelming majority – to the “non-metal” section). From the latest participants – Monster Cat, Red Delishes and the band curiously named “The Last Band”, the former was liked by TPB and is now featured at thepiratebay.sx. If you want to be there as well – go ahead, it’s your chance to show the world what you do!
