Yeah, its always been a popular symbol of file-sharing and has been used by the press as a stock image whenever they need one.
Also, its an open-source image, so its fine to use it.
Just worked on yet another poster, this ones very high res. (I'm bored, no work today ;])
i'm just thinkign that if people associate that symbol with the pirate bay (like i do) then they might think were somehow connected, which we aren't.
also, is that the anon suit? another site i don't think we'd want to be that associated with. whilst we deffinitely want their support we don't want the media to just say "oh my their just a bunch of teenagers who steal music and call people fags"
Looks like a black suit to me. Black Suit does not automatically equate to anon. It is what you think it as. If you percieve it to be then others will follow the example. I for example did not notice it. To me it was just a pirate related avatar. If you don't want to associate with it then don't bring it up.
