Sweden Wants to Jail Pirate Bay User to Strengthen Anti-Piracy Enforcement
A Swedish Pirate Bay user who was accidentally caught sharing 57 movies during a friendís house search will face prison time if the authorities get their way. The man was previously ordered to pay a fine, but the prosecutor has now submitted the case to the Supreme Court, hoping to get the man jailed. The prosecutorís office says a prison sentence is needed so the police can legitimately raid the homes of file-sharers.
