Three founders of the world’s largest BitTorrent tracker (The Pirate Bay) – Peter Sunde, Gottfrid Svartholm, and Fredrik Neik, charged and convicted three years ago for copyright violation, will execute their sentence in different locations across Sweden. Of course, they are going to appeal the court decision.
A couple days ago Carl Lundström also received the notification, saying that he’s eligible to execute a four month sentence in the community. Like other three co-founders of The Pirate Bay, Fredrik Neij, Peter Sunde and Gottfrid Svartholm, Lundström was also found responsible for copyright violation in The Pirate Bay’s case. Now each of them is bound to execute the sentence to separate prison spread around the territory of the country.
Neij (TiAMO), Sunde (brokep) and Svartholm (Anakata) are expected to be executing their sentences in 3 separate prisons of the second category. Chief Officer of Probation responsible for their sentence claimed that they had 3 levels of security and decided to put TPB founders in institutions with normal security. For example, Fredrik Neij will have to spend ten months in Kriseberg prison in Malmö, while Gottfrid Svartholm is scheduled to serve a year sentence in Mariefried, which is around 65 km away from Stockholm.
The speculations are that Svartholm may as well be considered dead, because his particular location remains unknown. As for a spokesperson for The Pirate Bay, Peter Sunde, he is eligible of executing an eight months sentence in Västervik Norra. Nevertheless, his lawyer promised to file an appeal in the following months. They aren’t going into it right now, but promised it would come in the spring. Perhaps, Peter Sunde won’t have to sit out the sentence at all.
Aside from prison time, the TPB co-founders are likely to pay about $6,78 million in damages. In frames of the investigation, the police found out some cash belonging to Lundström, but didn’t find any valuable assets for the others.
Meanwhile, the representatives of the famous The Pirate Bay declare that two things will happen from now on: first of all, Hollywood and the IFPI can kiss their hopes of getting any money goodbye, and secondly, The Pirate Bay will keep on operating regardless of the outcome of this fiasco.

|Legends! Thanks for the read Sam|
|What a wasting of peoples' lives. Convicted murderers, pedophiles, rapists....so many with convictions in these areas and offenses are given slaps on the wrists, or jailed for what - maybe 2-4 years tops? That is so brutal.|
Where is the justice?
What the whole Pirate Bay, MegaUpload and so forth situations teaches or shows me, if anything, is that if someone is making money from pirating or other "soft" types of criminal activity (by soft I mean the laws are very suspect in nature to begin with), that person should be wiser in stashing that money in places that are not linked to them via a paper or digital trail.
That way, if authorities do the wrong thing and bust you, at least when you get out, there are funds available to thumb your noses at the Establishment with (not publicly, of course), and livable monies for life.
There is no shame in keeping secrets, and while I am a firm believer in honesty, there are times when honesty is disadvantageous, as most people would use that against you.
Just my opinion.
Thanks again, Sam!

|Well, always remember, if somebodies wallet is getting lighter.. there's gonna be someone on your back because of it, If there's no 2012 Ferrari..hence, no chicks.. "Greed doesn't have limits".. because selfish desires are bounder less.. which ends up with an angry spoiled corporation buying off public entities.. I'll say.. hey!!.. we are submitting to the art you help provide.. appreciating the work you do.. using our money to find something somewhere to love.. We'll pay to help you keep providing.. save the money I say.. the torrent systems not just helps us to stay away from the streets.., it keeps widening your markets, increasing your publicity.. it also unfolds our eyes to the world.. our grandfathers didn't have this chance.. they got burned by the lack of mental stimulation in which we all paid the price under leather whips.. let Torrent services do the work for you.. we know who is behind S.O.P.A. and all.. those are services people don't wanna go against.. cause symbiosis and reciprocity are the key words of every future business.. since you're only a chain in the economy.. not everything will go towards you.. 80% of the products I get to know on entertainment comes out by these sources.. you'll should be smart and let TPB and the rest do their thing.. work with us..and you shall stay with us..|
