Swedish Torrent Site Operator Appeals Court Decision

Swedish Torrent Site Operator Appeals Court Decision

The 25-year-old owner of SwePiracy torrent tracker has largely avoided the goals of the entertainment industry prosecution in Sweden – the admin avoided demands for years in prison and millions in damages, and was instead handed hours of community service and told to pay under $200,000.

SwePiracy has grown into one of the most popular private torrent trackers in the country and consequently became a target for anti-piracy groups. More than 4 years ago, anti-piracy group Antipiratbyrån and police both in Sweden and in the Netherlands took coordinated action to take SwePiracy offline.

Now its operator showed up in court to answer charges relating to the illegal distribution of a sample 27 films, where the prosecution demanded years in prison and $3m in damages. During the trial, SwePiracy defense lawyer (better known for representing Julian Assange and participating in TPB trial) called the claims the most unreasonable he’d ever seen in his life.

The District Court finally handed down its decision, where it found the tracker operator guilty of copyright violation, but largely dismissed the prosecution’s demands for extremely harsh punishment. As a result, SwePiracy operator avoided a lengthy sentence and got only probation and 100 hours community service. In monetary terms, the prosecution’s claim for millions was dramatically reduced to $148,000, which must be paid to Nordisk Film. In addition, the state confiscated $45,600 allegedly generated by torrent tracker.

As you can understand, the sentence could’ve been much worse, but the site operator disagreed and decided to launch an appeal.

analogkid6103 avatarHe needs to win cause if he loses the appeal the decision could be reversed and he could be subject to the stronger penalty.
