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, for one, would actually like to see pirate bay loose. Not because I care one way or another about their piracy, but because I am sick and tired of them using freedom of speech as an argument for piracy. They are ruining freedom of speech!

This, as far as I can see, is nothing to do with freedom of speech, but is strongly related to freedom of information. Enlighten me please?
