Among the treasure troves of recently released WikiLeaks cables, we find one whose significance has bypassed Swedish media. In short: every law proposal, every ordinance, and every governmental report hostile to the net, youth, and civil liberties here in Sweden in recent years have been commissioned by the US government and industry interests. I can understand that the significance has been missed, because it takes a whole lot of knowledge in this domain to recognize the topics discussed. When you do, however, you realize that the cable lists orders for the Swedish Government to implement a series of measures that significantly weakens Sweden’s competitive advantage in the IT field against the US. We had concluded this was the case, but had believed things had come from a large number of different sources.

With increasing lobbying efforts from the entertainment industry against BitTorrent sites and users, we wondered whether these companies hold themselves to the same standards they demand of others.

Sweden’s Prosecutor General believes that the founders of The Pirate Bay have already had enough opportunities to prove their innocence. The defendants want to take their case all the way to the Supreme Court but the Prosecutor says that there is no reason to prolong proceedings. Site co-founder Peter Sunde tells TorrentFreak there are still complex issues to be dealt with and that the Supreme Court is the perfect venue.
The cross-party crackdown will tackle the country's "outdated" legislation on internet harassment, which includes no legal definition of "stalking". The inquiry will be conducted by the Justice Select Committee, chaired by the Plaid Cymru MP Elfyn Llwyd. It was prompted by a flurry of recent cases in which stalkers have used texts, tweets, chatrooms and sites such as Facebook to intimidate their victims – sometimes with tragic consequences. "Around one in five people will experience stalking in the UK in their lifetime and unfortunately what we are now seeing is a growing trend in 'cyberstalking'," Mr Llwyd told The Independent. Cyberstalkers can currently be charged under the Protection from Harassment Act, which dates back to 1997 – long before the explosion of social networking.
