The Pirate Bay cries foul over Pirate Bay copycats

Ignorance Is Bliss

The article portrays TPB as being hypocritically against the copying of their site.

In reality, TPB aren't bothered about the copying, they are bothered that people are being scammed out of money for access to TPB.

The article's author even recommends TPB take action that actually would make them hypocrites by calling in IP lawyers (again, demonstrating the author's sheer ignorance to the subject matter of the story).

The author is aware of the statements made by the parties involved but has drawn a conclusion that is contrary to what those statements imply. This is either bad journalism due to ignorance or a disingenous attempt to portray TPB as being hypocrites when they're not.

I expect better than this from The Register.
