    TPB Found Guilty

    well if anyone here is a torrent freak like i have become a big verdict came yesterday as the pirate bay has been found guilty of supporting the download of copyrighted material. all 4 members received 1 year in prison and $905,000(USD) in fines. they are going to appeal obviously. what a crock of crap and this could change a lot of stuff with ISP's and torrent sites all over the world! this verdict is flat out :bsflag:

    i know i was shocked as well. the verdict was due to all the political BS the judge was dealing with i think. oh well hopefully the appeals go well or they will be in prison for a year. they did say they will never pay the entertainment industry the 900,000 they all owe.

    your surprised? im surprised they didnt get more. 96% of the stuff on that site is illegal. thats why you put your servers in countrys that have relaxed copyright laws :arms:

    I agree, they could have gotten a lot more time and a bigger fine

    why u say that. there hosting illegal software/music/movies and so on on there site. im not going to try and say i dont use torrents. every single piece of software on this computer is ripped. only payed for the hardware. but if i go out and steal from an old lady, im going to get in trouble. same thing with pirate bay

    THEY dont actually host anything though. they are merely trackers for the torrents.
