More pirates brought to justice

Internet music pirates, that is. Pirate Bay four jailed for breaking copyright in Swedish file-sharing trial – Telegraph: “The founders of file-sharing website The Pirate Bay have been sentenced to a year in jail in Sweden for breaking copyright laws by helping millions of users download music, movies and computer games for free.”

As someone has said, we need to get Somalia wired for the internet so that their pirates can ply their trade in a more non-violent and possibly more lucrative way.

    An interesting phenomenon has occurred simultanously with the trial: the number of members of the swedish "Piratpartiet" has risen to over 30 000. With this number the party records fourth largest in Sweden. The third largest has 50 000 members.

    PS. This is the first time I've posted here. I'm a Lutheran guy from Finland and it's been really nice reading this blog! (and I'm not the only Finnish reader)

    Welcome, SNAFU! I have an elderly member of my Lutheran book club who was raised in Superior Wisconsin, speaking Finnish. When she wants to make depracating comments on our book discussion, we get it in Finnish.

    Great to hear that Finland is familiar to you. At least one of your books, Veith, is translated to Finnish, I guess it's "The Spirituality of the Cross: The Way of the First Evangelicals", but can't be sure since the Finnish name is something like "I found Lutheranism" (Löysin luterilaisuuden).

    I'll try to post somehting once in a while. I could give some European perspective to some issues. Let's see what comes…
