Pirate Bay

Heh, I love it when these sorts of mix ups happen.

Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer, is unintentionally funding the world's largest illegal file-sharing network, Sweden-based Pirate Bay.

According to Variety magazine, several Wal-Mart banners have appeared on the site, including an ad for the eighth season of The Simpsons on DVD, The Sopranos, Smallville, Desperate Housewives and the movie Office Space during the crucial Christmas selling season in November and December. Many of these titles are also available illegally as bit torrents.

It just isn't what the well bred marketing manager would want to happen, is it, his budget being wasted upon people who are about to get what he's selling for free.
