From the land that saw the Pirate Bay servers born, we salute all our pirates brothers and sisters and invite you to join us to share the joy of freeing and sharing information.
Mexican Pirates will gather to pilgrim on Saturday February 21st at 1pm (Mexico City time) to the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, to pray for a free internet, against copyright and to honour file-sharing, in support of the Pirate Bay during their upcoming Spectrial.
Candles and Pirate Flags will be available to light up and offer inside the venue.
Bring some data love to share!

The Spectrial begins. Accept No Originals. (specially from Sony,BMG and Warner Bros)
Personally, as an artiste, I know my work isn’t finished until 1) my mom calls to tell me how disappointed she is in me or 2) I get a cease & desist letter for copyright infringement. So, what does it mean if you get a C&D from iconoclast street artist Shepard Fairey for your parody of his senescent work. Well, for Baxter Orr, it means you can def clock out for the day my brother and celebrate a job well done. And for Shepard, i think it means you’re basically finished too.
Update: For a photo of the print that launched as many as one C&D click here.
