<a href is illegal?

20 06 2011

The newspapers in Sweden today has got a new top story regarding illegal file sharing. Apparently it’s now illegal to link to streams. I’m still shaking my head here, but WTF? Where is this country going?

 

You can read the article here. If you don’t understand swedish, you can read an english translation here.

 

I’m guessing that the journalists have just copied some stupid text. Anyone know if he really just had links to streams or if he was running the streams?





RIP PirateTorrents

Another swedish based tracker bites the dust. Next up to shut down due to the risk of being busted is a tracker called PirateTorrents.nu. PirateTorrents was a little bit bigger than XNT, so it’s totally understandable. RIP!





What will happen now?

Since we haven’t heard much from the police after being released, much of the information in this post is speculations. Anyhow, we’ll have to assume that the police is running an investigation. Since they confiscated almost 10 computers in this bust it’s probably going to take a while. For the time being, we are living life as usual. Minus all the tracker stuff of course.

 

We have been told that there will be further questioning carried out after the summer. Does everyone in the police force working our case take a 10 week vacation during the summer? :) I know I’ll be working for the most part of the summer.

 

After the summer, who knows what will happen? These sort of cases often take a lot of time to investigate and many of them are discontinued after some time. Others lead to a trial and a conviction. But for the time being, we don’t know what’s going to happen.

 

Our IRC channel is still online if you want to chat with other former members, it’s located at irc.zenet.org and the channel is called #xnt.
