As The Pirate Bay appeal trial goes on, the attorneys of the local entertainment industry are trying to tie the co-founders of the world’s largest BitTorrent tracker to unauthorized profits and access to copyrighted material. Meanwhile, Peter Sunde argues that peer-to-peer is extremely important if viewed from a democratic point of view, adding that file-sharing of copyrighted content constitutes a sad consequence effect which shouldn’t be fought but discussed.

Another day of The Pirate Bay hearing seems to bring more of the same. National prosecutors keep trying to prove that the tracker’s co-founders gained much profit from unauthorized file-sharing. At the same time, entertainment industry claims that the co-founders of The Pirate Bay knew perfectly their website hosted trackers linking to copyrighted content, but did nothing to stop it.

Besides, an attorney of the motion picture industry also attempted to prove that the violating activities were originally of a Swedish concern, because the BitTorrent tracker was primarily a Swedish website operating only in Swedish. She argued that over 1/3 of the website’s users were Swedes, meeting each other via the tracker located in Sweden, and downloading the torrent files hosted in Sweden. That was a clear attempt to make the infringement seem less international.

One of the co-founders, Neij, highlighted that he never thought their website was illegal in any way, as it was never intended to violate copyright legislation. The owners consulted with the lawyers about the site’s legality, and as they said it was absolutely legal, they never consulted anyone else, always ensuring to keep the service on the legal side. The main argument proving their position is that the tracker never actually hosted any copyrighted content, operating as a mere linking service.

Meanwhile, Peter Sunde took the stand trying to explain what the term “pirate” means, clarifying that it’s just a political stamp put on you by someone else. The attorney for the IFPI spent the day trying to link co-founders’ views on peer-to-peer with the users’ ability to access copyrighted content via The Pirate Bay.

Besides, Sunde noted that he believed file-sharing to be extremely important from a democratic point, since it’s all about freedom of speech. Besides, he said that illegally file-sharing copyrighted content is just a sad consequence effect which is to be discussed.
