I am reading in DN that the plaintiffs in the #spectrial are suing the site The Pirate Bay yet again at the Lower Court.
Below is a short summary of this article;
This time it is to shut down The Pirate Bay site. The record companies Universal, EMI, Sony och Warner are looking for the Court to issue a fine if people behind The Pirate Bay continue to make copyright material available on their site. This is also aimed the The Pirate Bay’s ISP, Black Internet AB.
In this new lawsuit, the plaintiffs claim that The Pirate Bay is an ‘infringement service’ and it is possible to find several music albums that these companies own the copyright to. The plaintiffs have been able to down 476 music albums via The Pirate Bay. The plaintiff demand that the 4 men behind The Pirate Bay should ensure that it is impossible for internet users to download any of their copyrighted material on the site. They also demands that the Court should forbid the ISP Black Internet AB to provide internet service to these kind of ‘infringement service’.
The plaintiffs are asking for the Court to have the fine issued immediately before the Court gives their decision and without Fredrik Neij, Gottfrid Svartholm Warg, Peter Sunde or Black Internet AB to be given the opportunity to answer to these claims – basically this fine should start asap before this case has been heard.
The plaintiffs lawyer is Peter Danowsky.
