A youth organization affiliated with the Swedish Pirate Party received some $162,000 from the Swedish government Friday under a program to fund political youth organizations, the website Torrent Freak reported Saturday. Ung Pirat ("Young Pirate"), which advocates what it calls file sharing and copyright reform, claims that it already is the third largest political youth organization in Sweden -- and growing. In a statement, Ung Pirat Chairman Stefan Flod said that the government award "is truly gratifying and show what we are achieving with our politics." However, Lars Gustafsson, CEO of a record company group in Sweden, was quoted by TorrentFreak as saying, "It is surprising. Ung Pirat works in principle to encourage something illegal. That they then receive money from a state institution is remarkable,"
