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.

As the most visible member of the anti-piracy organization, Pontén has attracted unwanted attention from anonymous activists who oppose his work. In May 2009, a forged application with the Swedish Tax Agency was submitted to change his name to "Pirate Pontén".[2]
