The Pirate Bay is now the Promo Bay. No, really. The premier site for illegal downloading, which recently segued into the pirating of physical objects and swears that servers will fly before it gets shut down, is now serving as a promotional tool for musicians and artists. By placing a giant ad atop TPB’s homepage, one musician got 4,000 new Facebook fans and a filmmaker had his movie watched 250,000 times.¬†TPB originally planned to run a few worldwide campaigns a year, but now the site’s owners are figuring they’ll do it every weekend, reports TorrentFreak. The pirates have become marketers.
