After prison release, Pirate Bay co-founder to speak at Media Days

One of the founders of the Pirate Bay file-sharing website will be making a speech about freedom of expression in Sweden at next year’s Gothenburg Media Days - after he is released from prison.

Peter Sunde is currently serving an 8-month prison sentence for being an accessory to copyright violations. After his release he’ll be speaking in March at the Meg15 event.

According to a press release from the conference organizers, he’ll talk about how he intends to continue to fight for a free and open Internet.

Another Pirate Bay co-founder, Fredrik Neij, was arrested on the Laotian-Thai border earlier this week, after being sought for four years.
