Buy Sealand

An interesting Idea.

I keep track of silly idealistic things like this, because occasionally one of them actually occurs and astounds people.

If a copyfight group owned Sealand, it could cause some very interesting things to happen. It might be dangerous, and is certainly baiting governments and corporations, any of which have rather more guns than any copyfight group.

I find myself split between the cynical hope that this happens and provokes an overreaction, showing the flaws in the system, and hoping that it all works out in a Cryptonomicon kind of data haven-ish way.
