Legal Practically before the trial is up and running, The Pirate Bay has achieved a major victory over the entertainment industry. On day two, the prosecutor has dropped half of the charges against the bittorrent website. The remaining charges are much lighter than the ones that have been dropped.

The cae I'd like to see

The case I would really like to see is the one where the starving artists rise up and show that these companies have rigged the game so that it is virtually impossible to get into the industry without their help, consequently getting to harvest the fruits of the artists' talent for practically nothing, using the proceeds to press legal suits claiming that the general public is stealing from them.

I don't support capitol punishment for mere murder. But I might make an exception in the case of senior executives in the recording industry.
