What format is .se? It has only been downloaded 66 times, so it would
be hard to catch someone in NY state.

Randy,

 

Jay wanted me to tell you about the Pedofil.se content that I found on
piratebay.org. I haven't downloaded it to verify its contents, but see
attached screen shot of http://thepiratebay.org/tor/3702417/Pedofil.se
(note our office IPs are banned from piratebay.org, so you can see this
page by loading it in a web proxy, such as www.hidemyass.com).

 

I have no idea what the Swedish on this page says. If you want, we can
ask Colin to have his wife translate it.

 

Thanks,

Ben

The last bit that seems consistently rumored is that pedofil.se was
being hosted by a Danish company, until a few days ago when PRQ offered
(I'm not sure how this "offer" happened) to host it. But when the
Danish company got pissed at the pedophilic content, PRQ said they would
host it because they are champions for Free Speech. The openly said, so
the articles claim, that they don't endorse child pornography and are
personally disgusted by it, but because they believe in Free Speech so
much they think Free Speech should trump child porn hesitations.

 

Again, this is from the English versions of the articles and piecing
together some bits and comparing them from different sites. But I
wouldn't be surprised if this is blogosphere rumor-mill and not
completely based in reality. For example, I don't understand/see
anything about why a site called www.pedofil.se would be in Holland
initially (it has .se extension).

Apparently, from what I can gather from the blogosphere, the Piratebay
people own http://prq.se/ which provides the colocation for
www.pedofil.se. Most of the articles are in Swedish. If you're really
interested, we can ask Colin to have his wife report on it for us.... I
suspect the English articles aren't as good as the original ones in
Swedish.

Randy,

 

I can't ask anyone to work on child porn research, other than Colin or
Ebert. The site is www.pedofil.se. It has the .se extension for Sweden
and has a Swedish IP associated with it. The whois entry for this is
currently wiped, but http://whois.domaintools.com/pedofil.se allows you
to purchase some info about the previous 16 domain changes (I'm not sure
what kind of data they archive about the 16 domain changes). I haven't
checked the site yet, as I'm in a public place now. Let me know if you
need anything else.

 

-Ben
