The Swedish Pirate Party are at the forefront of anti-copyright lobbying and privacy reformation in Sweden.  The same Internet-focused group that volunteered to provide broadband service for controversial torrent site The Pirate Bay, the Pirate Party looks to refashion Internet privacy regulations by starting an anonymity-based ISP.  By cloaking online activities, the progressive group aims to advance their political mission to ensure that citizens’ rights to privacy are respected.  Henrik Pontén, the Swedish Anti-Piracy Bureau agent who led the raid against The Pirate Bay, indicated that police requests for Internet activities from ISPs must be lawfully fulfilled.  However, Pirate Party’s ISP intends to keep no logs of online activities to give out.  By summer’s end the world will be closely monitoring Sweden’s privacy debacle.
