A live stream of the Pirate Bay's keynote at the upcoming Hack in The Box Security Conference 2008 in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia (http://conference.hitb.org/hitbsecconf2008kl/). The keynote is titled "How to Dissolve a Billion Dollar Industry - As a Hobby".
The Pirate Bay is the worlds largest file sharing network, currently and historically. It is a thorn in the side of the current media distributors as it utilizes the power of the Internet to dissolve the old way of distribution. The old media is fighting back using all their power, both legal muscles and illegal methods in trying to shutdown this system. In this keynote, TiAMO and brokep will discuss how the Internet gives you the power to dissolve old monopolies and an insight into what it takes to run The Pirate Bay - a system that generates an estimated 10% of the global Internet traffic; as a hobby.
