Daily Tech Notes » Free Speech

Many free blogging service providers and Web hosting companies will take down your blog if you link to copyrighted material. Some of these services will close your account even for posting something controversial!

Now Pirate Bay has started a new blogging service named Baywords which won’t take your site down for linking to copyrighted material or for writing on controversial subject.  So what is the catch?

First of all you cannot post anything you wish! You can only post stuff which are legal under Swedish law. I think services such as these may force Sweden to change the laws sooner than we expect! Secondly Baywords will push advertisement onto your blog. Not a pretty thing for many!

There is another problem. Baywords may see an influx of blogs which are illegal in US or other countries. This may cause the entire domain to be banned in those countries. Hence hosting your personal blog on Baywords may not be a good idea if you are looking for traffic. The only people who will find this useful are those who are publishing daily links to warez or ebooks (copyrighted material).

Baywards is running on a multi user version of WordPress software.
