Gymnastics: up + down + up + down + up ...
Streamtime.org was up again in a very short while, and from soon on it will become tough to get us into that down modus again. Traaalalaaalalaaalalaaalalaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
So let's talk some Swedish pirates, and sing the Pirates Anthem, good old Shabba Ranks song.
"More than 800 pirates and filesharers demonstrated in Stockholm on Sunday May 1st.
Among the speakers were broadband industry figure Jonas Birgersson and representatives from the free art/culture scene and The Pirate Agency. It was perhaps one of the largest gatherings ever of Internet pirates, copyright-critics and other believers in free culture.
The demonstration was held under the paroles "freedom to copy" which was manifested through a successful physical copy swap.
The speakers included Palle Torsson from Artliberated, Jonas Birgersson, a Swedish Internet-figure and CEO of Bredband2, and finally Sara Andersson from The Pirate Agency who spoke about the importance of copying and the urgent need of privacy in digital communication.

The Pirate Agency (Piratbyran) was founded in 2003 in support of the global movement against copyright and in defense of the idea that information and culture should remain free. With more than 40 000 community members we are one of the largest movements in the world supporting filesharing and piracy."
