The European Athletics Championships wrapped up in the west coast Swedish city of Gothenburg Sunday night, with Sweden sixth on the medal’s table, Britain winning its only gold of the championships and Russia proving it’s an athletics powerhouse second only to the United States.
Back in May there was much condemnation - and praise - for the Swedish police, when they shut down one of the world’s biggest file-sharing sites, The Pirate Bay. It helped catapult the issue of Internet downloading into the political arena.....but supporters of the site, which is now back up and running....say it’s just made file-sharing even more popular. And it’s also provided a boost for The Pirate Party... ahead of September’s election.
