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.

I watched the swedish news today and the prosecutor said something that might be of importance. TPB does remove unwanted .torrents like child porn and snuff movies and the like.

It is ironic that leaving the child porn in might have been better for TPB. Perhaps future sites which help people trade information will learn from that and simply let the data-flow do what it may. Thanks, RIAA, for your valuable contribution to basic decency in this world!
