*More on Piracy..*
Well here we go again..
For the first time ever a swedish citizen has been charged with
sharing copyright protected material (in form of media.. movies/music) off his computer, in this case it is the swedish movie “Hipp Hipp Hora”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0385751/ The person was reported to the swedish police by.. drumroll… APB and the police followed up. The evidence seem to be in form of nothing less than monitoring his uploads (or more likely, downloading from him and saving the logs..). How APB got his name from the IP one might wonder.. or maybe they just submitted a heap of logs to the police and they picked one at random. Who knows. “More on this in swedish..”:http://www.idg.se/ArticlePages/200503/24/20050324111531_IW/20050324111531_IW.dbp.asp

The evening newspaper Aftonbladet is also “running a story”:http://www.aftonbladet.se/vss/nyheter/story/0,2789,622270,00.html on this and has an interview with the prosecutor Katrin Rudstrom. This case could become precedent to others, in short if this guy is sentenced to pay only a fine it would rule supervision of IP-adresses for the sake of establish eventual piracy illegal (since the crime is considered minor).. if not, he’ll get the lightest of prison time possible and swedish pirates (yarr!) are gonna have to watch their backs a lil more.
