Submission + - How Much Does It Cost To Be Batman? (centives.net)

FauxReal writes: "Have you ever wondered what it would take to don the dark cowl and become Batman? I'm not sure if you can quantify the brawn, intellect, and mental fortitude but, the economics students from the Lehigh University blog Centives have run the numbers on cost.

Submission + - Warner hires investigator in Pirate Bay trial (thepiratebay.org)

FauxReal writes: A head of the preliminary investigation in the Pirate Bay trial, chief police investigator Jim Keyzer has had a leading role in the prosecution. In the upcoming trial he is expected to be a key witness of high credibility. New information reveals he has been employed since March 16 this year by Warner Bros., one of the plaintiffs in the prosecution against The Pirate Bay.

The Pirate Bay has issued a press release regarding the matter. (English & Swedish)

Keyzer was also heading an investigation where The Pirate Bay sued some of the major media corporations for data trespassing. That case was recently canceled by him.
