The Pirate Bay Founders Sued Again
The American film industry is again suing the men behind Pirate Bay in Stockholm District Court. Several big film companies, including Columbia, Disney, NBC, Paramount and 20th Century Fox, want to immediately ban the three men behind the website and the internet service provider Black Internet from running The Pirate Bay.
Monique Wadstedt, the lawyer representing the American companies in Sweden, tells the newspaper Dagens Nyheter that the fact that the men already have been sentenced to jail in an earlier trial, has not meant that the site has been closed.
But Peter Sunde, one of Pirate Bay's founders who has now been sued again, says to Dagens Nyheter that he cannot control things that he no longer has anything to do with. He also says that he thinks the companies are trying to sabotage the sale of Pirate Bay.
In the end of June, it was announced that Swedish advertising company Global Gaming Factory X AB will buy the Pirate Bay in August. Monique Wadstedt claims it is "very unsure" if the sale will ever happen.
