The Pirate Bay's "Music Bay" is 'coming soon'

The Pirate Bay's "Music Bay" is 'coming soon' A few years ago, the infamous torrent tracker The Pirate Bay registered The Music Bay domain, but did nothing with it.
It appears now, however, The Music Bay is well on its way to becoming a reality and TF says the record industry should be "very afraid" of its presence.

The subdomain has been displaying a "coming soon" headline recently, with no other details.

TF spoke with a Pirate Bay 'insider' who said:

The music industry cant even imagine what were planning to roll out in the coming months. For years theyve complained bitterly about piracy, but if they ever had a reason to be scared it is now. It will be a special surprise for IFPIs 78th birthday, and were thinking of organizing a huge festival in Rome where IFPI was founded.

The IFPI, one of the major music trade groups in the world, will turn 78 in April.
