Pirate Bay Spokesman Calls it Quits

Three months after being sentenced to prison and fined £600,000, one of the men in the Pirate Bay trial says he is stepping down from his job as the site's spokesman.

Thirty year old Peter Sunde - known online as "brokep" - announced in a blog post that he was leaving the role, after a tumultuous period for the Swedish file sharing site.

It's not clear whether he is cutting his involvement with the site entirely, or just stepping down from being point man, but in a post on his blog, Sunde explained that his work with the Pirate Bay was too time-consuming. "I want to build something new and I want to focus my energy in a different direction. I have projects waiting to be finished, a book is waiting to be finalized and many more books are waiting to be read".

Although he was not one of the Pirate Bay's founders, Sunde - who holds Norwegian and Finnish citizenship - became involved early on and soon became the public face of the site. He often handed out dismissive or absurd rejoinders to those who attacked the operation, and in 2007 he told me in an interview in Malmo that "I don't like the word untouchable, but we feel pretty safe".

Do I note signs of leaving a sinking ship?  :yes:
