I just had to copy-paste this. Awesome blog-entry (original) @ The Pirate Bay (in these sad times):

Riding out the storm

We have, ourselves, full confidence that if all do their duty, if nothing is neglected, and if the best arrangements are made, as they are being made, we shall prove ourselves once more able to defend our Internets, to ride out the storm of war, and to outlive the menace of tyranny, if necessary for years, if necessary alone.

Even though large parts of Internets and many old and famous trackers have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Ifpi and all the odious apparatus of MPAA rule, we shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the ef-nets and darknets, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Internets, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the baywords.org, we shall fight on the /. and on the digg, we shall fight in the courts; we shall never surrender, and if, which I do not for a moment believe, the Internets or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the Anon Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in Cerf’s good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.

If you don’t know what this is about, take a look here.

While I’m at it, I will take the chance to express my disgust at this recent court ruling in Sweden that forced TPB’s ISPs ISP to block access to TPB (it’s back up again though, through another route). Much is at stake here.

”Okay, fine, it’s back up again anyway” – So? For how long? TPB isn’t the only target here. The problem is that this essentially makes the mailman responsible for the contents of mail, and opens up for pretty much any attack on infrastructure and censorship in general. I can’t really believe this is happening, but it is. It is time to raise our fists and put our feet down. Raise awareness!

Mere Conduit! Don’t shoot the mailman!
