Band Used By The Prosecution In Pirate Bay Case Releases Latest Album... On The Pirate Bay
from the whoops dept
Advance Patrol was one of the bands used by the prosecution in The Pirate Bay trial as an example of a band harmed by The Pirate Bay. Except... apparently the band didn't think so. Isak sends in the news that the band has released its latest album on The Pirate Bay, with a message saying how they love The Pirate Bay:
The hiphop group known as Advance Patrol hereby release its new album on The Pirate Bay today. They do so to spread their music to as many as possible, and at the same time discredit the prosecution against The Pirate Bay, a prosecution where Advanced Patrol has been used as a weapon in the circus around the court proceedings....Once again, the further this goes on, the worse and worse the lawsuit looks for the entertainment industry...
We never asked to be plaintiffs in this case, Gonza from Advance Patrol explains, they used us as a weapon in a fight in which we don't wish to participate. We refuse to be used in a war against our fans!
You cannot legislate away file sharing, Gonza says. Those who share our music are also those who appreciate it the most. They are my friends, and friendship is something to be valued highly. That's why we're giving away El Futuro to the internet, to our friends.
