Legal In a textbook example of "dweilen met de kraan open", the landmark trial against Torrent website The Pirate Bay will take off today in Sweden. The founders of the torrent website are charged with aiding millions of internet users gain access to illegal content. Basically the entire entertainment industry is amassing against The Pirate Bay, making this one of the biggest trials against internet file sharing in history.

I am very proud to be from Sweden and I hope that the trial will go well (even though I do not personally like to use TPB). No matter what happens it will be no more than a fart in space as far as the pirates are concerned.

More interesting though is the Swedish Spotify which is really gaining popularity, at least over here. When a Spotify for movies and series is released it may actually be able to take on piracy. All we need then is a native client for Linux.

Maybe you should do an article on that?
