Sweden, home of the pirates?

By | Apr 2, 2009

A new law came into effect yesterday in Sweden, which forces internet service providers to give up information about users on governmental request in order to track who is sharing files.  Apparently, internet traffic in Sweden immediately fell from 120gb a day to 80gb.  According to a spokesman from the Swedish Pirate Party – I’m not making this up, there is actualy a Swedish Pirate Party – this usually accompanies laws like this while internet users figure out how to change their settings so as to continue pirating anonymously.

This law affects organizations like Pirate Bay.  It also affects people with massive collections of downloaded IP, who can now be held responsible in Swedish courts.
