Pirates Given Sentence

Peter Sunde ('brokep'), Fredrik Neij ('TiAMO'), Gottfrid Svartholm ('Anakata') and Carl Lundström of The Pirate Bay have all been found guilty of 'assisting in making copyright content available' and each have received one year's jail term.

Sunde has hinted at an appeal and that the final decision may be "years away".

The Guardian newspaper is also reporting that the website has been fined $3.6m (£2.4m).

Sunde has also stated that the website will continue operating as normal.

Get your fact right mate, its 7077 ;-) Just updated my info.
Yeah, I cant really talk although mine do come from Usenet and not Torrents.
The difference being i don't upload anything so i haven't broken any laws (but lets not go in to all that here).

"Here says the person using a leaked 7068 build of Windows 7."
It was Ralph Waldo Emerson who said, "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of a simple mind," or something close to that.

Seriously, using a leaked build doesn't cost anyone any money. Pirating software, music, or movies does. Of course, since my only source of old movies is pirated movies--think The Hunchback of Notre Dame with Charles Laughton--I'm guilty of supporting piracy.

I just dont agree with people making money out of warez.
Im guilty of doing a lot of my shopping in Usenet but i would never pass it on or sell any of it. Its purely for testing purposes ;-)

If these guys weren't making so much money i would have a lot more sympathy for them.

Probably double standards i know but that's me all over.

I support filesharing and especially The Pirate Bay!

Why? Because I think it's a natural development of the internet. I mean anti-piracy companies will never manage to shut down filesharing anymore, so why should they care?
Millions of internet users are already filesharing on a weekly base, and this will go up every generation I think!
Remember that internet is still rather new in perspective and so is filesharing. But the problem is that (for example) lots of children (which have been born with a pc in their hands actually) think it isn't that weird/dangerous/... to use sites like TPB.

So I think it isn't anymore about the principle of "We, the movie companies, are losing money on this".
I think they should accept it and go on with searching for new sources of revenue, instead of trying to stop filesharing which isn't ever going to happen

well... not to get into it all but, things used to be "different"

i dont think ppl "get" the right perception, or know as much as they think they do, or what they do think they know, is right.

oh btw, no difference in HOW you get things, via torrent, usegroup or what have you, you still got it from the main source... it just trickled down to you... now it doesnt take as long for that process due to bandwidth nowadays.

As for the article/news, i cant see how this judgement was handed down. By definition, they arent hosting anything illegal themselves. Would be like having a forum, and some person comes there posting racist comments or whatever, and your place gets the blame for just having an outlet for the guy's comments. Or, guy starts a fight at a pub, pub is found liable and only guilty party for the actions.

now the t-shirts and other stuff do make my stomach feel ill... but thats capitalism i guess (they are selling their own brand/name albeit)

Sid Meiers Pirates!
There are games that will not lie down and die, the remake of the 1987 classic Pirates, to my mind, is one of them. I have it working perfectly on Win 8, but it reports that dll - msvcp71.dll - is missing on my Win 7 x 64 laptop. Why? I found and installed the dll into win 7 but still no joy. I...

Right now I'm very sick... It's horrible and my thinking process is very hazy, I was playing a few games on my PSP and it was hard to know what was going on. Anyway, I just read a few articles about piracy from "TorrentFreak" and have thought of a more moral and simple solution to piracy. If a...
