Henrik Pontén (2009)

Henrik Pontén, born October 17, 1965 in Kalmar, Sweden, is a jurist active in the organization Svenska antipiratbyrån (Swedish Anti-Piracy Bureau), and is often seen representing the organization in the media.[1] He became well known in Swedish media during the Bahnhof raid and the raid against The Pirate Bay. Pontén studied law at Stockholm University.

In May 2009, as a response to Pontén's anti-piracy stance, pranksters legally changed his name to "Pirate Pontén".[2]
