Two Swedes Got Fined for Sharing Files

Home > Piracy >

Two Swedish Pirates were sentenced for sharing music and movies over the Internet. Both men were fined for infringing copyright, and were told to pay 80 days income.

One of the Pirates, a 44 year old man from Borås, was found guilty of sharing songs from Roxette, The Eurythmics, and two other bands. He is the first person in Sweden to be convicted for sharing music over the Internet.

Earlier this month a 29 year old man was fined $2200 for uploading a movie, but he was discharged by the appeal court because there was not enough evidence that the man actually uploaded the film from his computer.

It is unknown whether the convicted filesharers will appeal. They might have a case since these rulings often lack a sufficient amount of technical evidence.
