Pirate Bay co-founder won his passport back

news pirate-bay-logo

Fredrik Neij won his appeal against the Swedish embassy in Bangkok after they took his passport from him a year ago. He is now free to travel from Laos because the authorities did not present a proper reason for the longer revocation to the Appeals Court. This is just one of the legal cases that the Pirate Bay founders are involved; authorities are really giving them a hard time ever since they were established. The verdict against Neij was made final in the February but he didn’t want to leave it just the way it is so he appealed to the Courts decision.

Someone Should Tell the MPAA... Don't Poke The Bear

despd

There is an old (very old saying); “don’t poke the bear”. It is one of those saying that people toss out to remind us that there are some things that you should just not do. It is a saying that the gang over at the MPAA, RIAA, BSA and even members of the US Government should listen to (maybe we should tell them). Unfortunately for them they have not only poked the bear, but have kicked it too. This group of people is so out of touch with the way the world works that they actually think they can control technological progress. We are talking about the constant attempts to control the internet, communications and anything that travels over it; all in the name of maintaining a broken and outdated business model.
