Most of you have heard about The Pirate Bay's trial in Sweden, where four men behind the site were found guilty and sentenced to one year in prison, and a hefty fine. Even though they filed an appeal recently, some key figures in the Italian music industry have said that this could be their chance; there might soon be a lawsuit against The Pirate Bay in Italy. This optimism is reflecting the outcome of the trial in Sweden, even though if another trial were to happen, not many connections could be made to the first trial. The trial could just as well turn out the other way, with The Pirate Bay found not guilty. We will find out whether prosecutors will proceed with legal action or not within the next few months.
