Pirate Bay Judge Complained Of Hacks & Threats

The judge who used to be at the helm of the most infamous digital piracy lawsuits to date claims he became a target for piracy advocates.


Justice Peter Charleton took part in the landmark 2009 ruling by allowing ISPs to block access to the world’s largest BitTorrent tracker The Pirate Bay – a website that had become a universal harbor for unauthorized file-sharing. Peter Charleton claimed that The Pirate Bay had been built on a "weird ideological basis", and its sole purpose is to "steal" copyrighted content.

Nevertheless, Charleton turned out to be just a minor player in the legal ordeal. Telecommunication company Eircom has already agreed to a deal with a group of companies represented by Irish Recorded Music Association, admitting that the ISP wouldn’t contest a legal filing to block access to the file-sharing website.

Despite the fact that The Pirate Bay still exists today, Charleton's ruling was regarded by many as an obstacle to basic human rights like freedom of expression. Therefore, Peter Charleton has become the subject of ridicule, and even worse.

In an interview to Irish Times, the judge claimed that his life had been threatened, and he had been targeted by hackers. Moreover, someone from the Internet has even tried to implicate Charleton for crimes he never committed.

Peter Charleton said he had received the threats that his life would be “wrecked by computer”. According to the judge, some cyber-terrorists were proposing in the Internet to hack into his PC in order to obtain his credit card and other details. The threats were made to order pizza and call girls to turn up to the judge’s door. Someone even promised to plant child porno on his work PCs.

Compared with Charleton, there are lots of judges presiding over crimes involving first-degree murder and torture charges. And those have never come under such scrutiny. In other words, to face this kind of treats for something that goes down as a relatively minor mark on the legal landscape can be considered quite ridiculous.

Ultimately, regardless of all the attempts, thus far nobody has managed to take Charleton offline, with maybe one exception. The judge complained that his computer was so slow that he had stopped using it. So the terrorists did get their revenge in some way.
