Björn Ulvaeus wants more filternet

Mr Ulvaeus has long been the enemy of creative people innovating in his field and a few days ago he managed to score some space on Times Online. He argues among other things that since song writer can’t tour and are incapable of negotiating good deals for themselves they should be legally pampered and be [...]

Israeli comedians make fun of Sweden.

Swedish Minster of Foreign Affairs Jörgen Jörgensen (with a very Danish sounding name)  relies on his cultural superiority when explaining how the Sweden works.

We Didn’t Start the Flamewar!

Hillarious video set to an old favorite of mine, Billy Joel’s We Didn’t Start the Fire.

Thanks CollegeHumor!

Found via BoingBoing.

This is what 5022 new members look like!

A nice graph starting that early January 2006. Note the  vertical line at the end. I have a little ticker playing a fanfare every time a new members joins and its still playing at 00:29. Every other minute or so. With any hope we will reach 20 000 members by the morning. Lots of demonstrations [...]

Pirate Party(se)’s servers buckle under flood of new members.

So around 16:20 today the membership/webserver of PP(se) stopped responding. I managed to clock 1922 new members from noon till then. That’s barely 1100 members behind The Liberal Party that sits in the current governing right/center alliance. Our youth section is probably 1000 members or so from becoming the largest political youth section in Sweden.

Sadly [...]

Epic fail. The Pirate Bay crew sentenced to one year in prison.

All four accused in the Pirate Bay trial are sentenced to one year in prison. Verdict here in swedish. The Pirate Party pressrelase calls this “our ticket into the European Parliament”. 

Preparation was cut form the sentence, but assisting in copyright infringement was kept.

What suprises me the most is that all four got the same sentence. [...]

Contrary to what Opassande(sv) claims, it is I who is Sparta…eh I mean the boss of the Internet! I rule all and everyone does my bidding! If the content industry needs someone to broker deals with they should turn to me. This goes double for you Pär Strömbäck, spokes person of the Computer Gaming Industry(sv). 

Mr [...]

Danny O’Brian explains the Spectrial on G4tv.com

This clip with Danny O’Brian from the Electronic Frontier Foundation gets most of it right.

It’s closer to 3 years worth of preparation.
It’s two hosts, a spokesperson and a would-be business partner.
Just as the industry won’t accept a settlement or loss neither will TPB
Any advertisers appearing on the site are threatened with legal action from the [...]

Norwegian TV Deploys Their own BitTorrent Tracker.

Yesterday NRK announced that they will start up their own BitTorrent Tracker using the same beerware licensed OpenTracker that The Pirate Bay has been using for several years now. They will also supply Norwegian subtitles to all content and promise to link to your subs if you add more languages to that. Why are they doing [...]
