When it comes to their own website and logo Pirate Bay is however quite sensitive. A Finnish Anti-Piracy Group has started a parody website. On this website the logo of Pirate Bay has been changed into a sinking ship. All links on this website refer to their own website giving information on good alternatives rather than Pirate Bay.
Pirate Bay is furious and is threatening with a legal action. Using the interface Anti-Piracy group infringes their copyrights, moreover the website is against the ‘customer’ policy ‘of Pirate Bay.
The first questions that arises is since when such a policy is applicable to non-users? On the base of copyright this case is interesting. MarkMatters.com feels that this use remains within the boundaries of freedom of expression/fair use. And honestly, this overreaction of the Pirate Bay is more shocking than the whole website.
