Here’s another vague threat for The Pirate Bay to laugh in the face of – the International Olympic Committee wants the Swedish piracy-enabler to remove all copyrighted Olympic content from its comprehensive listings.
The IOC has requested assistance from the Swedish government, asking the Minister of Justice to help force the Bay to remove Olympic stuff. We are sure Pirate Bay admins are hurriedly doing so at this very moment!
As ever, and as it did when The Men tried to stop downloads of GTA IV, the Bay has today changed its logo to represent the “Beijing Bay” – and cleverly ripped-off the Olympic logo at the same time. It is so defiant.
We will bring you news that statistics show a sudden increase in the number of people downloading Olympic clips off Bittorrent tomorrow.
