First I want to ask you...

The media often describes you

as a computer genius.

How would you describe

your competence yourself?

I do have a certain

technical competence, yes.

What does "a certain" mean,

compared to others?

I'm not sure this is the right time,

place or medium to post my CV.

But I am asking you.

Please answer politely.

I decline to answer that question.

It's too much of an estimation.

-It's what?

-Too hard to estimate.

-Too hard to estimate?

- It's a very difficult question.

How did you meet

Fredrik and Gottfrid?

I don't remember, but I assume

it was in a chat room on the internet.

When was the first time

you met IRL?

We don't use the expression IRL.

We say AFK. But that's another issue.

I don't remember that either.

Got to know each other IRL?

What is that?

In Real Life.

We don't like that expression.

We say AFK - Away From Keyboard.

We think that the internet

is for real.

This is what our office looks like.

Is this inside the Pirate Bay?

Yes. Here are some of

the people working on it.

-Are they working on it now?


Where are they based? In Sweden?

Let's see. USA, USA,

USA or England, England.

Finland, I think.

The Pirate Bay.

This is the web server.

Data base and search function.

The trackers are over there.

This little piece is the tracker.

It's the world's biggest tracker.

It coordinates 50%

of the world's BitTorrent traffic.

Not so many computers,

but powerful and well-configured.

Half the day has gone.

How did it feel in court?

So far it's been boring.

The prosecutors' strategy is to lie

as much as possible in the most boring possible way -

-so you fall asleep in court and become

physically undable to defend yourself.

Some say that you've made a lot of

money by spreading illegal material.
