KEYNOTE SPEAKER 4: Peter Sunde (brokep) - Founder of The Pirate Bay (TPB)

Filed under: Main Page — Administrator @ 10:42 am

Presentation Title: Dissolving an Industry as a Hobby
Presentation Abstract:

The Pirate Bay is the worlds largest file sharing network, currently and historically. It is a thorn in the side of the current media distributors as it utilizes the power of the Internet to dissolve the old way of distribution. The old media is fighting back using all their power, both legal muscles and illegal methods in trying to shutdown this system. In this keynote, TiAMO and brokep will discuss how the Internet gives you the power to dissolve old monopolies and an insight into what it takes to run The Pirate Bay - a system that generates an estimated 10% of the global Internet traffic; as a hobby.
