The Pirate Bay Trial Regarded as Waste of Time

Peter Sunde, the co-founder of the world’s largest BitTorrent tracker website based in Sweden, stated the obvious fact: whatever the outcome of the ongoing trial related to his conviction for the facilitation of copyright, it will anyway end up at the Swedish Supreme Court.

A few days ago the co-founders of The Pirate Bay, the most popular BitTorrent tracker in the world, were allowed to get a chance to appeal their conviction, but the trial, unsurprisingly, was just a boring pastime.

First, the court was confused by the reason why the fourth of the co-founders, Gottfrid Svartholm-Warg, could not appear. His attorney claimed that he’s sick and remained in Cambodia. He even called his mother to go there and help him. After a short confusion the court decided that the hearing can be started without Svartholm-Warg, while providing him the opportunity to appear at a separate trial if he submits proof of his illness.

The hearing went quite boring, with Prosecutor Rosvall trying to explain to the court how BitTorrent technology works. He showed the judges an educational video about torrent files, and started his attempts to tie the co-founders of the Pirate Bay to PRQ, the present owner of tracker. Rosvall also quoted the tracker’s policy, pointing to the provision related to the removal of copyrighted content.

As usual, the BitTorrent tracker’s co-founders have argued that the website is currently owned by another company, not them, and that all four of them haven’t had any stake in the service for some time now. That’s the main argument the prosecutors focus on to debunk and try to hold the co-owners responsible.

Peter Sunde, one of the defendants, noted that no matter the outcome of this trial it will go all way up to the Swedish Supreme Court. That’s why the ongoing hearing is just boring and a waste of time.

Rick Falkvinge, the leader of the Pirate Party, has also criticized the hearing, calling it an example of how American entertainment industry is being allowed to set the rules on what and how content is shared online. The Swedish Pirate Party has been hosting the BitTorrent tracker site The Pirate Bay since this May. Besides, it started to also host Wikileaks several weeks ago.

All we can see from the case is that whatever the final decision is, the tracker will live on.
