Piratebay, the Swedish torrent site is planning to buy Sealand, to make a nation free off copyright laws, and Piratebay is trying to amass funds and anybody willing to contribute a donation to buy Sealand will become honorary citizens and some sources have even mentioned to have nobiliary titles. The target price is £500 million. (lol thats a helluva lot of money they should just consider buying other private islands and going autonomous, than buying this old platform, that attarcts so much legal issues already, besides for such a small space err country how many citizens can actually stay there?!)

Piratebay has already erected a website at BuySealand.com to accept donations via paypal, with a forum to discuss how the country would then function.

Though its little more than a platform in the North Sea, a man made structure similar to an oil rig, built by the British in World War II as an anti-aircraft base to repel German bombers. The derelict platform was taken over 40 years ago by retired army major Paddy Roy Bates who went to live there with his family and since then declared it an independent principality and self proclaiming himself as Prince of Sealand. * —
