The Pirate Bay Appeal Day 4: It’s Fun to Run
It’s Day 4 of The Pirate Bay appeal and almost the entire morning was devoted to the interrogations of Fredrik Neij, one of the four defendants and the only one being asked to answer additional questions. Fredrik talked about how he got involved in The Pirate Bay and what his motivations were to work on the site.

Pirate Bay Appeal Day 5: Screenshots Prove Nothing
It’s Day 5 of The Pirate Bay appeal and in the morning the Court showed video of the previously recorded interrogations of Carl Lundstrom, one of the four defendants. In addition the prosecution brought in simple screenshots as evidence, which painfully exposed their technical incompetence.

And now the month-long countdown begins to see what the verdict is:
This concluded the appeal, and after the paperwork was dealt with the Court announced that the verdict will be made public on Friday the 26th of November.

THE PRINCIPALS behind The Pirate Bay filesharing website have had their prison sentences cut but their fines raised by a Swedish court of appeals.

The Wall Street Journal (subscription required) reports that the four men will have their one year sentences reduced, which is handy as they will have to get back to work quickly to raise the 46 million Swedish kronor (£4.2 million) needed to pay their fines.

Had they not appealed and done their porridge they would have had to pay only 30 million kronor (£2.7 million).

The Pirate Bay launched its appeal in September of this year, and has always argued that it is just a search engine and is not responsible for the links it delivered.

Although all four are expected to be released early, the WSJ reported that one man, Gottfrid Swartholm Warg, was unable to attend today and will appear for a separate ruling.

The remaining trio, Fredrik Neij, Peter Sunde Kolmisoppi, and Carl Lundstrom had their terms cut to ten, eight and four months, respectively. But those huge fines are, frankly, rather crippling.
