You probably heard a bit about the success of Sweden’s pirate party in yesterday’s elections. Here’s my favorite Swedish pirate prank:
Antipiratbyrån lawyer Henrik Pontén, one of the Pirate Bay’s arch rivals, had quite a surprise recently when he received an unexpected piece of mail. The letter from the Swedish tax authority informed him that his request for a name change had been accepted and from now on, he would be officially known as ‘Pirate Pontén’.[….]
“The pirate movement have previously tried threats and when that doesn’t work, they do this,” Pontén told Aftonbladet.
