Paying the Million of Swedish Kronor Will Help to Ban BitTorrent?

The Pirate Bay co-founders must pay 500 000 Swedish kronor ($69,313 USD) each for piracy film content sharing. The co-founders think they have already expiated their fault by closing the service in November.

Entertainment producers are indignant at illegal use of their content by file sharing services. They like to gain profits from punishing piracy and not by improving their own technologies for copyright protection. The same was with MPAA and RIAA (Motion Picture Association of America and Recording Industry Association of America), whose authorities made the Pirate Bay a core of all evils, proclaiming them in public as the number one enemy.

This BitTorrent tracker site was judicially ordered to stop its online activity. Otherwise their co-founders, Gottfried Svartholm-Warg and Fredrik Neij, had to pay 500,000 Swedish kronor ($69,313 USD) each as a penalty. Of course the Pirate Bay’s tracker was shut off and turned to magnet links and trackers out of the Pirate Bay servers. The site didn’t contain music, video or any other media information – just links, familiar to Google or any other searching system.

Such result didn’t satisfy the media copyright holders, who wanted to see The Pirate Bay totally disappeared from the face of Internet. Gathered together, music and video companies told the judge that removing the tracker didn’t change the general situation – media files are successfully shared online. The links are as harmful as it was before. Entertainment giants still want their million of Swedish kronor from Svartholm-Warg and Neij.

It seems like video studios don’t understand the essence of the problem or deliberately try to collect funds from such as The Pirate Bay. The whole BitTorrent community, as lots of alternative open trackers, is extremely popular now and offers a lot of space for piracy. Fighting the one simple service it is impossible to protect the cinema and music from illegal sharing. Now it is quite simple – even without hosting trackers, just posting the links you can successfully operate on the ‘illegal’ basis.

In such a situation all that Hollywood authorities do is trying to improve BitTorrent technology by inventing new ways of how to continue the piracy file sharing and evade the law. Even if the fine will be paid, nothing will change at all. Maybe it is a fine gesture to pay a million for such help, and Svartholm-Warg and Neij will do this with big gratitude.
