Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"...Piratbyran and Piratpartiet."

Interesting. I assume that

"...the social concept of privacy so powerful in Germany and the Nordic countries."

includes the motivations behind this --

"Antipiratbyrån's tactics inspired some 4,000 Swedes to complain through e-mail to the Swedish Data Inspection Board that the group's IP tracking violated data-privacy laws."

-- and the concern that it shows regarding database contents. Are there aspects of this that are related, but markedly different? I'm interested in getting a better sense of this in cultural terms.

BTW, it is of course taboo to discuss AI as if it might be realised, and have consequences.
