Thugs Hurting YOUR Hobby Stand Trial

simflightlogoIt is good to see the lowlife of Pirate Bay in court once again, and this time with some serious, although fumbling, prosecution and charges. The Sweden based piracy site has been taunting authorities and commercial developers for many years, all the while making money of stolen software and openly stealing from thousands of developers and publishers, thereby severly hurting YOUR hobby. Carl Lundstom, the apparent investor, Peter Sunde, a programmer, and two of their cronies stand trial and face 2 years in prison (not nearly enough). Lets hope they DO get convicted this time around, or it will be time to start boycotting Sweden and its failed justice system! Read about it here.

If people like those running the PB can go scotfree for so many years, then I have nothing to worry about. And Simon is the very least of my worries in this world. 😉 Jon, I meant what I said in the title. These are thieves, that’s MY story and I’ll stick to it, to heck with semantics and political correctness. I’m not a lwayer, just a tax paying citizen saying what’s on his (and many other’s!) mind.

Alright, Ian. I get it. I really do, and I’m going to shut up now. But in the future, if the topic is going to be “Thugs Hurting YOUR Hobby Stand Trial?”, then please don’t try to tell me using the word “thief” in the context of a discussion with that title subjects your site to anything remotely resembling legal responsibility. You have opened the door, and now you’re saying “well, it’s open, but only part way and noting bigger than my own opinion can get through.”
