The Pirate Bay Founder Banned from Running Tracker

The Swedish court added the remaining The Pirate Bay co-founder Peter Sunde to the list of his fellow co-founders who‘ve been banned from running the website, threatening him with $70,000 fine.

The long-lasting battle between creative industry and the world’s largest BitTorrent tracker The Pirate Bay is going on. Recently Stockholm district has added the remaining tracker co-founder Peter Sunde to the list of individuals banned from operating the website. This list includes the other two of the site co-founders Gottfrid Svartholm Warg and Fredrik Neij. Both of them were already forced to either shut down the tracker or pay a fine of $70,000 last fall, but the third of the founders had got an exemption from that decision just because Peter Sunde couldn’t be served a writ of summons in court.

The music industry has been claiming all the time that both of the banned site owners failed to comply with the court ruling, and has therefore been demanding that each of them pay the penalties set by the court.

All the issue was about the Swedish BitTorrent tracker’s conviction for the facilitation of copyright violation a year ago, or, as the court ruled, inciting the infringement that the users have committed by using the website.

As for The Pirate Bay’s founder Peter Sunde, he has maintained all the while that he has no involvement in running the tracker. Moreover, he insisted that it’s against the law for the person neither living in Sweden nor being involved in an ostensibly Swedish organization to be held responsible for its actions. Last fall he said that it appears that the Swedish legislation orders people living outside Sweden to not get involved in something they aren’t involved in anyway.

Now this decision might pass by the site owners, because they are more likely to be concentrated on the upcoming appeal of the earlier conviction, which is scheduled for the fall this year.

Since The Pirate Bay is being operated from inside Swedish Parliament after the Pirate Party decided to become its ISP and moved it to their Parliament server, it seems that the BitTorrent tracker will have the last laugh in this long-lasting run anyway, regardless of who will be its operator and owner.

No avatar"The Swedish court added the remaining The Pirate Bay co-founder Peter Sunde to the list of his fellow co-founders who‘ve been banned from running the website, threatening him with $70,000 fine."

Amazing that the Swedish courts feel they have the "power" to actually tell someone they cannot "run their website" and actually believe that they are in the right for doing so. The injustice in that phrase alone is startling enough to rattle the nerves of even the most talented web technicians and cringe the toenails of any site admin. It amazes me that somehow the judicial system feels they can step and and take control of one's intellectual property rights, such as in the case of Peter Sunde, whom is not only a legend in the BitTorrent "game" but a highly intelligent and motivated file sharing mastermind. Somehow, I feel that the attempts of various political organizations and corporate slime to take away a person(s) creative foundation and tell them they no longer can have any control over operations of something in which they are responsible for, will only haunt them in an eventual battle over complete rule, which is bound to cause a backlash in the hearts and minds of independent spirits across the web.

Sad indeed.
