Taking “IP piracy” seriously

A website called The Local reports:

Swedish file-sharing website The Pirate Bay is planning to buy its own nation in an attempt to circumvent international copyright laws.

The group has set up a campaign to raise money to buy Sealand, a former British naval platform in the North Sea that has been designated a ‘micronation’, and claims to be outside the jurisdiction of the UK or any other country.

Shiver me timbers! No scallywag ever scuttled his booty underestimating the stupidity of the messdecks.
