TPB Owner Ordered to Pay Music Labels $395,000

While Peter Sunde may have thought he'd left The Pirate Bay behind, the legal system has a different opinion. The Finnish court has just ordered Sunde to pay $395,000 to major record labels after their content was shared illegally via the torrent site.


The Pirate Bay has long been called a piracy haven that deprives artists of their income, and this criticism has recently expanded to include one of its co-founders, Peter Sunde. Being one of the most recognizable people in the file-sharing space, the 37-year-old has openly called for the current The Pirate Bay to die. Nevertheless, Sunde now finds himself in the midst of a new TPB-related problem.

Sony Music Entertainment Finland, Warner Music, Universal Music, and EMI Finland sued Peter Sunde accusing him of facilitating illegal sharing of the music of 60 of their artists through The Pirate Bay. As a result, the Helsinki District Court ordered him to pay record labels almost $400,000. Previously, Finnish ISPs blocked The Pirate Bay, but this made no difference to the site’s operations, as expected. While there is no accusation that Sunde shared anything himself, the lawsuit still held him responsible for copyright infringement.

As the TPB founder did not appear in court to defend himself, the Court handed down a default judgment, ordering Sunde to pay the full amount plus costs of around $62,000 to the local branch of IFPI. Besides, he also faces a fine of one million euros if the infringing content continues to be shared on the platform. However, it is unclear how he is supposed to do anything about it.
