what is Sealand?
do you mean Seeland? (haha, little negativland allusion).

in seriousness - the place i would start is find out which
countries haven't signed the WIPO treaty. Lots of third
world countries with no cultural tradition of intellectual
property are still resisting the idea, some on purpose as a
way to resist imperialism. But then sometimes the IMF and
other foreign money "persuades" them to see the "light"...

This topic always makes me think of Bruce Sterling's book
"Distraction", in which the Chinese put up a satellite with
a free net server on it that has all english-language
software, and the US software industry is destroyed...
