The Pirate Bay Founders Will Be Locked Up

The Pirate Bay Founders Will Be Locked Up

Recently the Swedish Supreme Court has announced that it wasn’t really interested in hearing the appeal of the three operators of The Pirate Bay.
supremes.jpg

In other words, the prison sentences and fines that had been handed out to the four offenders in the case (Peter Sunde, Gottfrid Svartholm, Fredrik Neij, and Carl Lundström) will stand. More than a year ago, the Swedish Court of Appeal decided that the three are guilty of criminal copyright violation offenses, but decreased their prison sentences from the levels ordered at their initial 2009 trial. The Pirate Bay founders were demanded to pay millions of dollars to the music and movie company plaintiffs.

Peter Sunde is sentenced to 8 months in jail, Fredrik Neij received 10 months, and Carl Lundström will get 4 months. All of them were ordered to pay $6.8 million in damages. Meanwhile, a 4th defendant, Gottfrid Svartholm, was absent from the appeal hearings because of medical circumstances. Therefore, he missed the appeal hearing and was sentenced to 1 year in prison.

Lundström's lawyer explained that he was really disappointed that the Supreme Court appeared so uninterested in dissecting and analyzing the legal twists and turns of this high-profile lawsuit. Meanwhile, one of the defendants is going to appeal the case in the European Court of Justice, but experts don’t think this will prevent the sentences from being carried out.

Nevertheless, it doesn’t mean that The Pirate Bay operators will be required to spend up to a year in prison. The matter is that the Swedish justice system implies deducting a year from any prison sentence on cases over 5 years old. So, The Pirate Bay case meets that criteria and the offenders could qualify – it’s all up to the court. Ironically enough, The Pirate Bay is still operating, as if it wasn’t a part of the legal proceedings. It turned out that just a few hours after the Supreme Court decision being made public, the online tracker started redirecting to a .se domain, due to the fears of a possible seizure from American authorities.

So, what do we get in the end? The entertainment industry is unlikely to get any money, The Pirate Bay founders are unlikely to be jailed, and the torrent tracker still runs. It looks like no-one is a winner in this case.

4xpncc avatarFellAway, at the start of the post, it says the swedish court were not interested in hearing the case and that picture represents that the way they have their hand facing out is like 'talk to the hand, i don't care".

but over all, ExtraTorrent FTW!!

Rockman avatarOk let me get this officals bust the owners of PB; but seems like the owners will get no jail time and then i'll guess employees who work work for no jail time owners move the domain to .se domain and their pirate bay is bust proof(?); no legal action can be taken; love it gooo PB.

williebk avatarAs they say, cut off one head, three more will grow! Nobody can't stop the whole internet.

We can always go back to the 80's 90's old school file sharing (FTP) before there was torrents and file sharing programs and sites.

XBatmanX avatarOk so what I would really like to know is what does all this mean for us? Seems like every time I get on the internet and read these articles and one sounds like we have nothing to worry about and then another tells us that were all screwed pretty much. What I would like to see is a tally or statistics of some sort showing a percentage of sides. Is filesharing coming to an end or is the MPAA just shooting for the stars. Im just confused.

XBatmanX avatarWell im going to play it smart by not going back to Pirate Bay at least for awhile. For all we know the site has been seized and there just using the site as bait to get some of the uploaders and people downloading, instead of just going after the site creators. Going after the creators and people running these sites is one thing. If they can put together a sting operation that would effect millions or even thousands of people who dl the data, that would be devastating.
