The trial against The Pirate Bay
In February and March 2009 a state-sponsored spectacle will be arranged in the Swedish capital. The trial against The Pirate Bay – one of the longest in Swedish history – begins at the Kungsholmen courthouse in Stockholm.
The modified city bus of Piratbyrån, formerly known as S23M (summer 2008) and S23X (fall 2008), is at the same time getting restless in its parking lot in Belgrade. It wants to go on a spring tour, back to Stockholm.
In connection with this it changes its name to S23K. On spot outside the trial, it will be used to intensify the spectacle, among other things functioning as a press center for The Pirate Bay and Piratbyrån and as a physical gathering place for sympathisers and curious people.
Police has today seized the servers of Swedish The Pirate Bay even if the servers are fully legal under the current Swedish laws.
In the raid the server form Piratbyrån among others were also taken. By raiding the ISP a fully legal service was shot down and our freedom of thought offended. This temporary blow will make the Internets roar. And make the heat and anomalies under the current copyright regime even greater. Internet will not listen to the reason of the old mass medial matrix.
