    Royal Navy should use that Platform (so called island) for target practice. Case closed.

    They did this for one simple reason... or 17,000 last time i checked. They have a group of idiotic followers who think they run those servers for some other reason then profit... so they cash in on those idiots with some bullshit. Do you really think they could ever even believe they could raise a few hundred million?

    If they really wanted to change the concept of copyright, they would support copyleft. The only problem with that - there is no money in doing that. I hope karma pays these scumbags back in full.

    Though piracy is stealing, and copyright serves some purpose, I've got to say the laws need some work. I mean, nothing is passing into public domain anymore! Digital piracy will always be here until the content providers (record companies, movie studios, TV networks, etc...) start revamping their business models and working with the peer-to-peer people. The economic incentive to pirate is just too great.

    Apparently, Sealand won't be sold (no matter what) to Pirates Bay.

    Prince Michael said "no."

    Plus they want 750 Million Euros for Sealand. Yea, right. I am SURE they will get that.

    His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Sealand



    "Roughs Tower has been occupied by associates and family members of former pirate radio broadcaster Paddy Roy Bates since 1967, when they forcibly evicted a group of earlier pirate radio squatters. Critics claim that Roughs Tower has always remained the property of the United Kingdom, which is disputed by the Bates family." (answers.com)

    OK so here's the plan.

    We let them buy an island and then set up shop. Some of us move there.

    Then we start a revolution and take over the country. Send the leaders into exile. We set up websites and never pay taxes again.
