<nettime> [Fwd: The Pirate Bay Guilty of Helping Sharing People?]


It appears that the people behind The Pirate Bay have been found guilty,
but they have appealed and years could go by. Quote from the link below
 reads:

"All four have pledged to appeal against the decision though the process
may take several years.

One of the defendants, Peter Sunde Kolmisoppi, admitted on Twitter that
Pirate Bay had lost its case.

âStay calm â nothing will happen to TPB, us personally or filesharing
what so ever. This is just a theatre for the media,â he said.

âReally, itâs a bit LOL. It used to be only movies, now even verdicts
are out before the official release.â"

The Pirate Bay Guilty of Helping Sharing People?

The Swedish legal system - running errands of Hollywood and the
recording industries - have decided that helping people to share their
digital data across the Internet is illegal. They might be guilty in the
eyes of a corrupt court of law and in the corporate press, but in my
book they are fine people, caring and sharing.
