The winner of The Top Candidates, a swedish television show aired on SVT, decides to donate his winnings to Pirate Bay.
The First State Financed Tracker
So, finally SVT payed up, and the money from Petter’s win at The Top Candidates has found it’s way home.
Obviously SVT didn’t like it that the winner decided to donate his money to two pretty controversial organizations.
One of them The Pirate Bay and, especially, the other «The Invicible Party», which you’ve probably heard about in the news if you’re a swede.
So they decided to give the money to Petter himself instead, which also makes him have to pay taxes for it, leaving us with only $4 656 USD (35 000 SEK).
As we’ve written earlier, the money went to a new database and search server. We’re also trying to cut down on the advertisements.
Oh, by the way, SVT is Sweden’s public service tv station, so I guess this makes us the first state financed tracker. Pretty cool, huh?
