There is no bad publicity.
If those ads manage to get at least 1% of those visiting piracy related sites to actually buy something then it's a good thing.
Why would you want to intentionally restrict your reach on the internet? It is already known that those who pirate music actually buy more than others. Don't alienate them, but instead try to encourage them to come back and buy. It's not an easy thing to do, but it should be worth it.
