This made me smile,from forwarded from Kotaku

In an act of either genius or madness an anti-piracy outfit turned the tables on The Pirate Bay this week by pirating parts of their website in order to show that piracy should be avoided. TPB responded by threatening to sue. But rather than back down, the boss of the anti-piracy group now says that being taken to court by the site is something they would encourage and look forward to. Sharpen the cutlasses and bring out the plank, this could get interesting.

Instead of writing original code CIAPC ripped off The Pirate Bay‘s and passed it off as their own, which is a bit like smashing someone in the face to show them that violence is unacceptable. Admittedly that kind of approach has the possibility of achieving results but it tends to erode the moral high ground a little.

Despite an irony overload on both sides which at one point threatened the structural integrity of the Internet itself, many people looked forward to an unlikely dream scenario in which the evil Winnie-the-Pooh-laptop-confiscators were forced to back down in the face of an unlikely but vicious pro-copyright onslaught from the swashbuckling heroes of The Pirate Bay.

Yes, really…..

Seriously though, will TPB really go through with it?
