The Pirate Bay are planning on buying an island, to make their own nation which will have no copyright laws whatsoever.

So far, $20578 has been pledged, the project will go ahead if $25000 is pledged by 27th September.

Check it out

Will their island be recognised as an independent state? If not then what they're doing is pointless.
So come on in

This.

However, if it is in fact a recognized nation, this is brilliant.

I'm pretty sure they would have put some thought into this: they've got more than $20000 dollars worth of pledges. I doubt they would be doing this if they weren't sure it would work.

EDIT: Wait, the money isn't for the island at all. It's to hire an editor for their film.

Actually, where are they getting this island from? I would have thought that every known island has been claimed by one nation or another.

Am I missing something? The page you linked shows that they're raising money to hire an editing studio and professional editor to make a documentary.

Where did you get the idea they're buying an island?

You didn't even attempt to verify it before you posted that?

That's all well and good. But it has nothing to do with the article TS linked, and nothing to do with that donation drive.

The 'island' they're buying is valued at around £504million. Here in the article they're asking for $25,000. The island buying and the TS link are two completely different things, and you shouldn't have to Google to find the correct story, so using LMGTFY in such a case is stupid.

Srsly.

Nope. Ha. Oops.

"In January 2007, when the micronation of Sealand was put up for "sale", the ACFI and The Pirate Bay tried to buy it. The Sealand government however did not want to be involved with The Pirate Bay, as it in their opinion represented "theft of proprietary rights". A new plan was formed to buy an island instead, but this too was never implemented, despite the website having raised $20,000 in donations for this cause."

Nevermind. Ignore me.

There is an island after all.

Yeah, which is worth 500 million pounds. I highly doubt they can afford that.

EDIT: I'm sorry TS.

Actually to be fair, one of the first things they mention in the documentary promo is about them trying to buy an island. Not a complete 'fail' on OP's behalf.

We should just turn this thread into a discussion on how badass the country of Sealand is. I'll start us off. Sealand is ****ing badass.

Did no one stop to think that $25,000 isn't enough to buy a shitty little house, let alone an island.

The money is for them to make a movie.

They've raised twenty grand from people who won't even pay ten bucks for an album?



But seriously, I'm excited for their documentary. They're like Rosa Parks, except instead of fighting for equal rights, they're fighting for free CDs and movies. But you know, it's basically the same.

i think this guy get mega-owned. I did some light reading and apparently you cannot buy titles other than "baron." So that guy's piece of paper claiming he is now a Lord is simply an expensive piece of paper. (unless i missed something)
