Pirate Party introduces anonymous internet

Home > Piracy >

The Swedish Pirate Party introduced a completely anonymous internet service called relakks. Relakks makes it possible to browse the web, and use p2p-applications (like BitTorrent) without being monitored by your ISP or anti-piracy gangs like the MPAA and RIAA.

Rickard Falkvinge, the leader of the Swedish Pirate Party states in the press release:

There are many legitimate reasons to want to be completely anonymous on the Internet,” says Rickard Falkvinge, chairman of the Pirate Party. “If the government can check everything each citizen does, nobody can keep the government in check. The right to exchange information in private is fundamental to the democratic society. Without a safe and convenient way of accessing the Internet anonymously, this right is rendered null and void.


Relakks will cost 5 euro ($6.30) a month or 50 euro a year. The service will provide the following.

  • Your ISP IP-number is changed to an anonymous IP-number
  • Both web traffic and application traffic (eg. p2p) will be anonymized
  • Transfers will be encrypted to ensure privacy
  • A small part of the subcription fee will go directly to the Pirate Party. So you will support a good cause.
