This news is around by couple of weeks, but i found out only today.
The Pirate Bay a notorious website-tracker for torrent downloads have been found guilty, the owners have been charged 1 year of jail and 905.000 dollars for damage, good thing there is an appeal in course.
Never been in Sweden, but from what i saw on tv, it is a very advanced country, technologically and culturally, so this verdict comes a bit surprisingly to me, well as all the countries, they have shadows, and this verdict must be one of those.
To me this seems like the story of David vs Goliath, and the verdict sounds like hit 1 to educate 100, i mean what is supposed this thing to do? You close a website and ruin the life of 4 swedish guys for what? Do you think that tomorrow people who download will rush and go buy your products? DREAM ON.
This is completely wrong, if u charge them, you must charge all ISP providers of the world, you must trial all the users of the internet, i heard 80% of internet traffic is generated by porn and torrent bits, so what you are going to arrest millions of people?
Some time ago i read an article, where a dev of Call of Duty 4, was saying you don’t imagine how many people play the game with illegal copies on unauthorized servers, like he was thinking that this loosers would have bought the game!! hahaha keep dreaming dude, they just played it cause it was free (for them) i saw that type of people, they won’t buy even if it costed 1 dollar and if u take away the internet from them, they just buy a game in 50 people and then everyone makes a copy, or simply they go out to get some fun.
With all the problems there are in the world, this guys hadn’t better things to do that persecute a website-tracker? I have the power, if you wanna sell me music-movie-games-whatever, you must do a master piece and i decide the price, cause you want my money and i am in control.
