Legal Back in April after the four involved in the Pirate Bay scuffle were declared guilty of helping to break copyright law, the judge who gave the verdict, Thomas Norstrom, was found to probably be biased due to his involvement in several pro-copyright groups. After a long, cold, hard bout of deliberation, the Swedish Court of Appeals has actually found Norstrom unbiased, something rather surprising. This means that the charges against the guilty still stand.

Two books I would recommend to any one interested in this topic are "Against Intellectual Property", and "Against Intellectuall Monopoly". Together they deal with the topics on moral, legal, philosophical and practical grounds.

I recently encountered a web developer who released some of his work with this as the content of his license:
"Do not try and bend the license. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth. That there is no license. Then you'll see, that it is not the license that bends, it is only yourself."
