Peter Sunde, a former co-founder of Pirate Bay has launched a domain name registration anonymization service. The service is called Njalla and offers protection for customer data and privacy. Instead of the customer owning the domain, the company will own it on behalf of the customer.

Njalla isn’t a domain registrar and doesn’t offer ownership by proxy, like many other privacy services. They own the domain fully for the customer and give the customer full control over it. The domain can even be transferred to the customer or another third party without charge.
