Surely if you wanted to dress up to show your support for besieged torrent-tracking outfit The Pirate Bay, it would involve black clothes, wooden legs and maybe a parrot or two? But no.
Today is apparently ‘Wear Yellow For Sharing Day’ in support of The Pirate Bay, which is facing criminal charges in Sweden. It’s been organised by the ‘Free The Pirate Bay’ Facebook group, and so far more than a thousand people have signed up to take part.
The company’s case isn’t likely to actually go to court until later this year, but it could have big implications for file-sharing, and for the various record labels, movie studios and software publishers who are keen to see The Pirate Bay walk the plank.
