Dotshop, a Scandanavian wholesale and online retail specialty music store, is closing down.  The announcement blames it on decreased sales due to piracy, and makes an eloquent plea that seems to take another poke at The Pirate Bay: “pirates have hi-jacked concepts that are too important to be misused the way they are: democracy, freedom, bright future. These entities, it seems, are beyond their grasp and comprehension, as they truly have absolutely nothing to do with piracy.”  Writes a reader, “The Pirate Bay gloats and one of the best Scandinavian distros/stores closes. Now I’ve gotta find someone else to sell our wares.” [Dotshop]
