Submission + - Pirate Bay founders found guilty

carvell writes: A court in Sweden has jailed four men behind The Pirate Bay (TPB), the world's most high-profile file-sharing website. Frederik Neij, Gottfrid Svartholm Warg, Carl Lundstrom and Peter Sunde were found guilty of breaking copyright law and were sentenced to a year in jail. They were also ordered to pay 30m kronor (£2.4m) in damages. In a Twitter posting, Mr Sunde said: "Nothing will happen to TPB, this is just theatre for the media." Mr Sunde went on to say that he "got the news last night that we lost". "It used to be only movies, now even verdicts are out before the official release."
