I agree.

It is best to approach potential hosters up front with a description of
the project and worst case scenarios/attacks (complaints, takedown
notices, etc). Sweden and the Netherlands were mentioned to have pretty
good privacy laws, and for most cases it is not necessary to go with
advertised "bullet proof" ISPs such as PRQ, which in general are very
pricey. Iceland is even more expensive. Another well known decent
privacy ISP for example is shinjiru in Malaysia ( ). If you need more detailed recommendations, I
can compile a larger list of potential ISPs to contact, but again, it
should not be hard to find 2-3 good ISPs in different jurisdictions
willing to stand some heat.
