Swedish Pirate Party launches ISP to raise funds for its impending shutdown trial


As a fan of Swedish electoral politics, you're obviously aware that the Pirate Party (or "Piratpartiet") has been bedeviling officials in that Nordic country since 2006, doing crazy things like hosting the Pirate Bay's servers and launching the Relakks commercial darknet -- all the while flying the flag for privacy rights, copyright reform, and state transparency. And now? Northern Lights TV has recently posted an interview with Gustav Snipe, CEO of Pirate ISP, the party's very own service provider. How long can an ISP that refuses to monitor traffic or keep user logs keep the Swedish government at bay? We'll probably find out soon enough: it's already providing beta access in Lund, with plans to go nationwide at the end of the summer. Video after the break.
