Submission + - Pirate Bay case ends in guilty verdict

mazarin5 writes: The owners of The Pirate Bay have been found guilty in their ongoing case:

From a guardian.co.uk article:

"A Stockholm court found the four defendants guilty of making 33 specific files accessible for illegal sharing through The Pirate Bay, which means they will have to pay compensation to 17 different music and media companies including Sony BMG, Universal, EMI, Warner, MGM and 20th Century Fox.

Kolmisoppi commented: "Stay calm — nothing will happen to TPB, us personally or filesharing what so ever. This is just a theatre for the media"

They plan to appeal the decision.
