Henrik Pontén To Become The New National Joke?

Posted · 2 Comments

Henrik Pontén of Antipiratbyrån (The Anti Pirate Agency) is quoted saying the following in SvD: “Naturally this [the verdict in the Pirate Bay trial] is a success for all rights owners and creatives…” This quote makes me think of the one where Ines Uusman said (in 1996) that “the Internet is a fad that will […]

The Honesty business cards are printed with Helvetica on uncoated paper. Slightly larger type to improve clarity. Simple as can be. It’s precisely the type of business card that this guy would HATE. Thanks to Frenne for sharing.
