Piratebay Apeal Denied By Swedish High Court, Founders May Go To Jail.

Piratebay Appeal Denied By Swedish High Court

Sweden’s Supreme Court will not grant leave to appeal in the long-running Pirate Bay criminal trial the previously determined jail sentences and fines handed out to Peter Sunde, Fredrik Neij, Gottfrid Svartholm and Carl Lundström standing.

In 2010, Swedish Court of Appeal found the trio, Peter Sunde, Fredrik Neij, and Carl Lundström, guilty of copyright infringement offenses.
Torrentfreak tells us that one of the defendants, will now appeal at the Europian Court of Justice.

The Piratebay website is still alive but now it is redirecting to a .se domain, perhaps fearing a seizure by US authorities.
