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.

Norwegian lawer Magnus Stray Vyrje, which defended when that case went before norwegian supreme court, isn't ruling out that the procecutor is dropping half of the charges is just a tactical move.

Stray Vyrje says:
"By dropping some of the charges they may add focus to the parts of the charges where the procecution has a chance of winning"
He also feels that who the torrent system works is going to be central.

Bad translation by me, probably. sorry
I couldn't find an english version of this.
