Sweden Takes Internet Pirates To Jail!

April 21, 2009


The “game” of internet piracy has been escalating over the past few months; becoming a trial of who can enlist the strictest rules and combat the most “pirates.” Well, we’re going to say Sweden is the first place contender in this pirate capturing battle, having convicted four men who were linked to a popular file-sharing site, The Pirate Bay. Anyone think of sending the RIAA to Somalia?

The four men involved with the file-sharing site, Gottfrid Svartholm Warg, Peter Sunde, Fredrik Neij, and Carl Lundstorm were all sentenced to a year in prison by the Stockholm district court, and were ordered to pay over $3 million dollars back to various media and entertainment groups like Columbia, according to Yahoo! News. The four men were convicted on charges that said they assisted millions of users to download music, movies and computer games for free, violating Sweden’s copyright law.

Despite Pirate Bay not actually hosting any of the illegal content, the court said the men helped users break copyright laws “by providing a Web site with sophisticated search functions, simple download and storage capabilities.”  According to Yahoo! News Swedish officials cracked under scrutiny from the U.S. who cracked down on The Pirate Bay three years ago.
