World renowned website The Pirate Bay is soon to be no more. According to jezebelmusic.com, "The Pirate Bay founders have sold the file-sharing site to a Swedish gaming company." The company, Global Gaming Factory X, plans on making the site "legitimate", thusly killing this online legend.

You will be missed, PirateBay. Yarrrrrrrr.

Full story here.

This would be far more tragic if an actual pirate had died, you realize. :-P

No Piratebay is bad enough. It's not the last, but it's the last good torrent site left. It seems like every year another one goes down... It's getting harder and harder to steal fair and square. *sigh*

There's still btjunkie.org and demonoid.com, but I did love the bay. It was my first torrent site.

Oh, did you get a chance to listen to any of the music in that case? What did you think?
