The Almighty Buck

+ - The Pirate Bay gets Napstered->

Submitted by

cgomezr writes "In an announcement that has almost unanimously annoyed its users, The Pirate Bay has informed that it may get acquired by the Swedish company Global Gaming Factory X AB.. The acquisition is reported as confirmed in both the company's site and several news outlets.. The CEO of Global Gaming Factory has stated that "We would like to introduce models which entail that content providers and copyright owners get paid for content that is downloaded via the site". Although TPB's official blog statement tells users to "don't worry", many regard this as a bitter end for something that has been not only an important filesharing site, but also a symbol of the fight for Internet freedom."
