While Thousands Of Sites Blackout To Fight SOPA, Marchex Owned Pirate.com Tries To Monetize Piracy
Today is of course the day that a lot of thousands of sites have blacked themselves out in protect of the SOPA bill, including mainstream sites like Wikipedia.org, WordPress.org, and some inside the domain industry like Tucows.com and NameCheap.com .
However one site that looks alive and well is Pirate.com owned by Marchex.
Not only is the site live, but its full of keywords to exactly the type of sites the SOPA bill and its supporters are trying to outlaw.
Keywords on the parked page are all about free download sites for music, movies, games, torrent sites, and even to arguably the number one target of the law, The Pirate Bay, are displayed all over the PPC page.
Not the smartest use of the domain, especially with SOPA, PIPA and opposition to them in the news everyday.
