Extra, extra: Internet outlawed in Sweden!
(Yeah, yeah, sensationalist headlines blah blah blah. I like them. Get used to it.)
Today the court presented the verdict in the Pirate Bay trial. The defendants were found guilty. Basically, they were punished as accomplishes for helping people share files illegally. Hence, from today, under Swedish law, Internet basically became illegal. Linking to illegalities are illegal. Reasonably, by the same logic, Internet providing is illegal if anybody uses your provided Internet to do anything illegal. In short, in Sweden, Internet had become illegal.
I shut down my personal websites hosted in Sweden today (http://www.liberalism.nu/, http://lennart.regebro.nu/) and are looking for a virtual server where I can run low-traffic Zope/Plone sites reliably for a low cost. The server must not be located in Sweden. And from what I’ve seen of French government attitudes, France is probably not good either. My professional websites hosted in Sweden will go away during the weekend. [Update: I really mean go away. I’ll shut them down. And no, it’s not customer websites, it’s still my websites, just not my personal ones, my my company ones. I’ve now gotten a couple of offers to make some sort of partnership to host my customer websites, so I’ll make this clear: I don’t do hosting. I do not host any customer websites.I just consult, so there isn’t anything to partner on. Sorry… What I’m looking for is a vartual host slice, no more than 50 eur/month. And I’m not going to host at any place I didn’t get recommended by somebody I know, so you don’t need to spam me about it. I want *recommendations*, not soliciations. Thanks.]
Recommendations, both for countries and providers are most welcome.
