The Pirate Bay Fails an Attempt to Change Biased Judges

2 of the judges, appointed to chair the upcoming appeal brought by The Pirate Bay creators concerning its copyright violation conviction, have finally been cleared of all bias allegations.

Högsta Domstolen (the Sweden’s Supreme Court) has been reported to finally clear both the judges of the appeal court, who were going to chair the upcoming appeal brought by The Pirate Bay (Swedish BitTorrent tracker website) concerning the site’s copyright infringement conviction, of all the bias charges. The entire affair started when The Pirate Bay has found out that one of the judges (Tomas Norström) presiding over the original trial was known as an active member of different pro-copyright outfits. Moreover, several of the lawyers working for entertainment industry were also found out to be the members of the same groups.

A 3-judge panel has later cleared Judge Tomas Norström of those bias allegations after careful review. This led to an appeals court’s decision to deny the retrial based on these grounds, but not replacing Judge Ulrika Ihrfelt, who is the original judge of the appeals court, and had also been known as a member of the same outfit defending copyright as Judge Tomas Norström.

When the co-founders of The Pirate Bay website have later learned this information about Judge Ulrika Ihrfelt, together with Judge Kristina Boutz, belonging to the Swedish Association for the Protection of Industrial Property, it was natural for them to cry foul and appeal to Swedish highest court.

Per E Samuelsson, a defense lawyer, argued in his submission to the court that it was absolutely inappropriate to have judges, being the members of groups and outfits belonging to the same political side as the representatives of the copyright industry, even in the court of appeals.

Unfortunately, the Pirate Bay did not prevail in its appeal with the Supreme Court clearing the way for developing the trial as per standard appeals process. The court’s ruling was based on the statement that it’s natural for a judge to often have an opinion before a trial on a legal issue which is somehow related to the case, but it doesn’t mean they are biased, if they are ready to follow their convictions irrespective of which side profits from its application.

Well, as far as the court is going to hear the case this fall having at least 2 judges taking the Hollywood side, there can’t be much hope held of the Pirate Bay to get a fair day in court.

carolina avatarNo but there is a muslim law about stealing. I would not want to be the tracker accused of stealing in a muslim country. They are PRO DEATH without even worrying about a trial in some clear cut cases. Nothing against muslims, it's their country, their law but I would not want to run afoul of their law.

menahunie avatarGood thing we are in the USA and NOT SWEDEN.
Say a judge states it is their opinion the people they are going to "judge" are guilty; then that judge has shown clear bias here in the USA.
Seems not the case in Sweden and I would really like THOSE judge(s) prove it and not in some legal game play.

rdb666 avatarhey 2die4, how about you chill out, leave the insulting of quality ET members alone, and while your at it get a clue about what you talking about, like try reading this juicy tidbit that if educated you could have found in 5 seconds..
http://www.muslimphilosophy.com/ip/rci.htm

now this isnt directly about using torrents per say, but clearly shows that copyright infringement under islamic law will be investigated.

So after removing your head from ur ass, feel free to edumicate yourself, cause the fuzzy math coming from your donk noob word hole, is useless.

2die4 avatar@ rdb666 investigation and prosecution are two different things and also you should know that under islamic law god owns intelectual property so it dont matter what one site says as we do not even know which group owns this site is it shia, sunni, ahmedi , sufi etc

so i think you should take your head out of your ass smeghead

carolina avatarThank you RDB666.
2DIE4 if you would read all the words IN CONTEXT, I said ACCUSED of stealing, not GUILTY of stealing. Being accused of stealing doesn't make you a thief. What it does make you is in peril if you get found guilty. As we all know being found guilty is in no way a certainty of guilt, as courts and human beings can of course find innocent people to be guilty. This very thing happens all the time, in every court system in the world. Of course I don't consider it stealing or I would probably not be doing it. Also quoting the death rate of some other country is an invalid point, I would consider my chances in this country to be pretty good that I won't get the death sentence for theft. The point was, I was stating my personal opinion that I personally would not want to be found guilty in a muslim country which traditionally considers women to be property and of less value than men AND is harsher on moral crimes than we are. While that is a generalization and not true of ALL muslim countries it is in general true of a majority of them. Again no offense to muslims I think they have the right to believe whatever they like, as long as they don't kill ME for it. In future I can offer this advice take it or leave it..... Try reading, then READING again before you jump all over someone else's opinion. For instance I read your comments and what you were commenting on 3 times before I wrote this. It helps keep me from making an ass of myself.
