The Pirate Bay Threatens To Sue Over Copyright Violations

The folks who run The Pirate Bay sure do seem to have quite a bit of fun. The latest is that, in response to a report from Swedish book publishers about how they scraped TPB's results for a period of time and noticed that 85% of Sweden's best sellers could be found on the site, the folks from TPB are threatening to sue the publishers for copyright infringement. Hypocritical? Yes. But, clearly, the TPB guys are merely making the point of just how silly copyright laws are. The TPB guys aren't big believers in copyright, obviously, so any such lawsuit isn't so much hypocritical as it is pointing out the absurdities of such a system to those who seem to think that copyright systems make perfect sense.
