MPAA & RIAA Score Major Victory Against .torrent Files!

ell, the outcome was expected – not that it makes swallowing this bitter pill any easier.  The Swedish court capitulated entirely to pressure from special interests and found in favour of the cabal of media gangsters, bolstering its quest to erode privacy rights and ignore even the pretence that people on the Internet have a right to exchange data using whatever protocol they choose.

Of course, the ruling has not had the impact of shutting down thepiratebay.org – not yet.  And its operators who are all away from Sweden at the moment claim they will appeal and eventually prevail in their litigations.  Of course, it remains to be seen what strategy they have in mind that will achieve this seemingly daunting goal.  The number of avenues available to these so-called pirates are fewer every day as the RIAA and MPAA continue to press their well-funded lobbying and litigation advantage.

Stay tuned – more to come on this story today, I’m sure….
